Sunday night my sister, mom and I made a trek to one of my favorite spots, Sacramento.  I’m there once a month to appear on the daily TV show Sac and Co sharing a craft project with my dear friend, host Mellisa Paul.

In the kids party biz PVC pipe is an invaluable building supply.  We use it for everything from Harry Potter Quidditch hoops to designing our own water parks.  I've always thought of PVC pipes as oversized tinker toys - you can basically build anything with them.

As I have written and said many times,

I am constantly impressed by the inventiveness and sheer creativity of our Mexican friends and neighbors.

Summer is here!  Which means it's time to hydrate!  Consequently, it means an ample supply of plastic water bottles for crafting!

Recently, I had a young client request a CHiPS party.  The birthday boy was turning 10. I thought this was a tiny bit odd, since the new CHiPS movie, starring Max Pena and Dax Shepard, is definitely not G-rated, or even PG-13 for that matter.  However, his mother explained, with a slightly embarrassed grin, that it wasn't the movie he was into, but the old, 1970's TV show!
