This is one of our favorite designers and here she is to introduce herself:
Hi, I am Amy and I love aprons, it all started when my dear friend (Tonia) had a birthday last August and I wanted to get her something fab. I saw some aprons at the mall without a fab price. I knew I could make one better. The only problem is that I don't sew, I called my seamster (he is a man so he can't be a seamstress) over to show me how to ruffle and I was off! Aprons have made a come back as a funky, cute accessory. I don't really make them to sell but it is a fun gift to give. Use your imagination, test your sewing skills, and make the apron a part of your world. It is a way to make you the domestic diva of your kitchen!!!!!!!
We chose Amy for our fashion giveaway because she has made everyday extraordinary with her aprons. You can check her out at: http://www.thisandthat-amy.blogspot.com/

Hello ladies, it's Tuesday and we have a terrific, quick and easy idea today. Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon! Ribbon is a great way to embellish everyday things around your house. We used satin ribbon and a brochette to hang this calendar. Now your everyday calendar can be part of your everyday decor. With the tassel it just need a little extra volume. So we took 3 different pink ribbons looped them together and tied a knot, added a glitter frame, initial and Voila!!

Then add 1/2 C. Sugar, 1/2 C. Oil, a dash of Salt, 8 C. Flour .
Stick in refrigerator til' chilled. Take a small amount of dough, flour each side and roll-out very thin. Put, directly on grill (pre-heated to medium). Cook thoroughly before turning. Flip it over and add your favorite toppings. Our favorite toppings are listed below. Keep the grill closed while the cheese is melting. (The refrigerated pizza dough will stay good for several days) Enjoy these as an appetizer or main dish!
P.S. Test a small amount of pizza dough first, to make sure your grill isn't too hot.

Toppings: Cooked diced chicken, fresh grated Parmesan cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, Romain lettuce, chopped green onions, sliced tomatoes and bottled Caesar salad dressing.
Grill pizza dough as directed above. Do not add toppings until removed from grill. Brush pizza crust with salad dressing, then load on the toppings, finish with lettuce, tomato and extra dressing.
DAD'S DELICIOUS DESSERT
Make (or buy) dad's favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Place a cookie in a dish, add his favorite ice-cream then another cookie. Garnish with fresh fruit like chocolate dipped strawberries. The tip to making this Over The Tipsy Top is the CHOCOLATE! Serve in a clear glass, melt choclate chips in microwave for one minute, stir, drizzle over the plate and cookie. The Tipsy Top secret is to use a little melted chocolate underneath the glass to adhere it to the plate!
P.S.S. The plate preparation can be done the day before and left sitting out.
Trust us these are tried, true, fast and easy. These favs will be delicious!

Father's Day is only a few days away we thought who better to do service for than your own DAD! The two of us share a common bond, we both lost our fathers just over two years ago. A trial we both wish we didn't have to go through, although it has made us stronger. We have each written a little tribute to our dad's, so our idea for you is to do the same. Whether your dad is still alive, lives close to you or far away, a step-dad, a father figure, the man you think of as 'dad' write a tribute to him. Give this priceless gift, all it takes is some paper, your time and thoughts, let him know just how important he is to you.........
My Dad was hard not to love. Charismatic, full of life, laughter and play. We played hard, time was of the essence; being the only ones on the lake by 6a.m. for water smooth as glass, the first in the parking lot at Snow Basin, or the first to breakfast on a Cruise ship?!!!!!!
Some say I am the "party queen" I have been since I was a teenager. Somehow I am willing, able and ready for fun with only a moments notice. This is my favorite part of me, it is who I am. Although I have to ground myself frequently that spirit and desire runs through my veins. It is the greatest treasure I'll always carry in my heart, from my dad. There are only a few surviving characters from the epic novel written by Ivanhoe. Like any good read, each of us has chosen our favorite parts to remember. Together we are better, definitely stronger, and more amazing human beings than we would have been without him. Thanks Dad!

Happy 6th Birthday Tate!!!! We celebrated at a Luau pool party and BBQ, it was great. With a little pre-planning we turned his party favors and his favorite snacks into part of the decor. The kids filled their beach buckets with squirt guns, bubbles, swim goggles, flower lais and yummy treats. We used many different sizes of glass jars, added a little ribbon embellishment and Hibiscus flowers to complete the look of a Luau. We often use these jars for our parties, centerpieces and decor. Most of the jars have just been purchased over time from stores like Tai-pan, Hobby Lobby and The Basket Loft. Plan any party theme, add coordinating ribbon and fill them up with all your favorites!

My front door is so dark I wanted to lighten it up, I had this mirror I was about to junk when I decided to give it a try. I knew the reflection of the sun would be eye catching. I loved the plaques I found at Hobby Lobby so I brought them home and blinged them up, added ribbon and tacked them to the door. The feather wreath was left over from Christmas, why not use it all year. I wanted something to go with my girlie plaques so I used an old purse with a touch of pink. I just recently added the vinyl crown which was an inspiration from our favorite store Dear Lizzie (if you haven't been there check it out, it's in Alpine).
Here's how to bring the inside out and dress up your front door. Use items that you already have around your house: mirrors, feathers, frames, plaques, pictures, purses (Coach is always a favorite) just about anything it's up to you. Use one large item or layer a few.
Hang with ribbon, wire, nails or a hook. Everything in this picture is hung with ribbon and one tack (per ribbon). This is a wood door, the tack is at the top ledge of the door. If you have a metal door hang the ribbon with duct tape. Leave a comment for The Tipsy Girls and we will help you customize your front door.
