Silver & Gold Star Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

Whenever I put silver and gold together, I can’t help but think of Christmas. Make these miniature star piñatas and fill them with all the silver and gold treats you can find – they’re everywhere this time of year! Wouldn’t it be fun to make these as party favors for an all silver and gold party this winter? (P.S. Even more metallic ideas!)

Instead, here’s a special DIY for Christmas crackers shaped like birthday candles. Make a bunch as a fun surprise for the birthday girl or boy and fill them up with mini treats, toys and candy.

iRobot Roomba Giveaway!

Well it’s almost 2015 and I don’t have a hoverboard (as promised by movies from the 80’s) but I have the next best thing: a robot that cleans for me. Today, I’m partnering with iRobot to give one away! We keep our Roomba in our studio and after we are done crafting for the day we pick up the big pieces of cardboard and then the Roomba gets to work. I love coming into the studio every morning to a clean floor. The Roomba is super advanced, it gets to all those hard-to-reach places and passes over every section of the floor until it’s totally clean. I love that I can multitask: the Roomba keeps cleaning while I run errands. iRobot also sells robots that can scrub & mop your floors, clean out your gutters, and even clean your pool. To see the Roomba in action, click here! Now I just need a robot that can bring me a root beer float every night and I’m all set.
