Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

Tag Archives: Beach Party
While cruising the aisles of a home decor store for my artist date, the fun beach themed dishes inspired me to host a beach party for my good friend’s birthday. By mid-June, Arizona’s not a place for outdoor parties so I brought the decorations inside.
No party is complete without invitations. I stamped these cute postcard style beauties.
I took my budding ideas where all good party planners go – Pinterest. Time and money helped restrain me from going absolutely crazy and transforming my entire house to a beach look. Time and money also kept me from doing some great, reasonable ideas too. But I’m happy with what I was able to accomplish.
Next up was a creative excursion to Hobby Lobby where I found the perfect (and affordable) plates with a bonus sign to add to my travel themed front room.
We had fun and the birthday girl enjoyed her special day. The decorations were so fun, I decided to leave them up all summer long. I could think of worse things to look at for the rest of the summer. I’d love to hear about your summer celebrations!
