Hi Everyone It has been a long time since I updated the blog . A lot has happen the past few months. A lot of remodeling , soul searching and support by the people that matter most to me . Expressions by Devin has went completely digital printable DIY on all my items and I have added new items too . Still working on making all my previous themes digital . It may take some time doing so but I will get there. I am also working on re adding handmade greeting cards to my shop. Doing digital items has helped out my family so much since I switched. I have more time to send with my little family and more time creating cards and other items that can be ready to ship out with no wait time. This blog will also be remodel here soon. This blog will have updates on my shop still but will also have more post on Pinterest post that I have tired that have or haven't worked, kids craft and learning tools that I have found that my little guy likes. Expressions By Devin has a new start so I thought the blog should also. Keep a look out for a new look and new post on everything. Lots of fun recipes ( with pictures ) and tons of other fun things you wont want to miss.

Hi Everyone, I hope you are staying warm and toasty. I usually don't hate winter but this winter I am really over it. I hate being stuck at home but it has been great to come up with new ideas. I have been helping my mom get her shop up back in running. She has been closed for a few months. She makes adorable quilted cosmetic cases. Perfect for wedding gifts for your bridesmaids. She now offers larger cases. She has amazing feedback and is awesome to work with. Make sure you check out her shop. heartfeltcraft.etsy.com

I have come up with a few ideas from Pinterest to make the perfect Owl theme Birthday party.
The cake is super important for any birthday party. My sister and I saw these adorable owl cupcakes on pinterest . We re-created them for my Baby shower.
They where so easy to make!
1.)Make your cupcakes from box or from scratch.
2.)Make your icing or use store bought white icing .
3.) Add food coloring to your icing to make what ever color you want the owl face to be ( We did light blue since I was having a little boy).
4.) Ice your cupcakes
5.) Take Oreo Cookies and cut the Oreos in half ( Tip: Use a warm knife to cut thru the white cream for a clean cut)
6.) Place Oreos on your cupcake any way you want to create the eyes.
5.) Add a drop of icing on the oreos to put brown M & M eyes or any color eyes you want
6.) Add a orange M& M side ways between the Oreo eyes for a beak.
My sister and I had so much fun making these and they were a hit at my forest themed baby shower.
Trying to entertain a large amount of kids can be a little crazy at times. This would be so cute and fun for the kids to do in between party activities:
You can't have a Owl Birthday party without Decorations. Check out these items on my ETSY shop which will be sure to fulfill all your decorating needs.

I know it's been a very long time. Being a work at home mom is taking away from my blogging. Expressions By Devin keeps me on my toes Plus all the amazing mommy things I get to do when I am not working. I have probably lost a lot of my readers by now which makes me sad because I love to blog and read your comments. Hopefully I can get back on track again. I have been trying out so many Pinterest pins that I need to blog about plus I have found some adorable party ideas to go with your Expressions by Devin themed parties. Pinterest tip of the day.... This actually works. I was over my friends house for a play date when my best friend found that one of her girls had drawn on the wall with crayon... Yikes!!! So I went to pinterest and looked through all the pins. This took off bright blue crayon and did nothing to the wall and its so easy!!!! Instructions: Sprinkle some Arm & Hammer baking soda on a damp sponge and rub the area I know what you are thinking... This lady is crazy and that sounds way to easy...This will never work. It totally works and saw it with my own to eyes!!
