  6. I am so inspired by your blog – so I just have to know where did you find the 4th of July paper flowers – that was the one craft I really wanted to make and didn’t see how or where you found them. Thank you for such wonderful crafting tips and making me feel like I can be the craftiest party thrower ever!

  9. I adore the watermelon pops! Another fun idea is to use a star shaped cookie cutter to make star shaped watermelon slices. They look great for the 4th of July when placed on a dish with some blueberries.

  10. Hi K–That cake was delicious :) But it was made by a professional baker who doesn’t give out her recipes. Sorry.
