My boys are both huge fans of the Pixar CARS movies, and I had a BLAST making this Radiator Springs birthday cake for my youngest! Now, I will be the first to admit that I do not bake, nor do I create fancy cake decor. I’ve always hired out for that, when and if needed. However, I’m experimenting with my craftiness . . . and getting tighter with my budget…. Continue Reading
Can you believe it is the last day of July!?? Where did summer go? I may have already done the back to school shopping, but I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet. This month’s Movie Monday challenge was a great excuse to create a summer-y craft and stretch it out for a just a bit longer.

Summer is such a bright, cheerful time of the year, and it means different things to different people. For me, summer means bbqs, campfires, the smell of freshly cut grass, and . . . birthday party prep. Both of my boys have summer birthdays, and it seems just when I finish planning and executing the first one, it’s time for the next party planning. I used to go really elaborate and crazy in my decorations and prep, but after so many years, I’m dialing it back. I still want my parties to look impressive, just with much less effort!

Most of the time our movie nights are fairly basic, the typical popcorn sort of deal. Every now and then, though, I like to make it a little more special – and a new movie is a great excuse for a little something extra. I grabbed some necessities for a delicious sweet and salty snack bar – Ghostbusters themed of course!
If you are brand new to C’mon Get Crafty, then you are about to learn what the others already know: I’m a movie freak. I love movies. I was a theatre major in college, and actress from elementary through my late twenties, and I absolutely adore films. I grew up watching everything from black and white classics to Disney. I’m not big on horror films, but everything else is fair game. So what do I typically suggest for family fun during the frigid Chicago winters? Movie Night!! Luckily for me, my husband and 5yo love movies too. So everyone is happy. So, now comes the story. I mean, typically movie nights are culled from our own ever-expanding library of DVD and Blu-rays. Occasionally we will splurge and rent something. Often the choice of film comes down to a drawing of names between the three of us old enough to have opinions. (Sorry H, 18 months doesn’t count.)
