The Monster Bash Went Well!!!

 Our cutie little monsters had a ball at their monster themed birthday party last weekend!  The weather was gorgeous, there was lots of great food available, and we all enjoyed watching the kids play and have fun.  I made three little monster shirts for the grandbabies, and banners for the birthday boy and girl.  My son-in-law made a super cute little photo board for people to use to take pics, my daughter made a cute headband and skirt for Kaya, and my daughter and I made fun monster cupcakes.  Here are a few photos from that day.

FUN monster cupcakes for the party guests (we made over 70 cupcakes, WOOO) ~

I can't wait to scrap these pics!  I haven't scrapped in months, due to all the moves.  My scraproom is 98% unpacked, I am SOOOOO excited!  I promise to show pics next post.  For now though, I need to get busy with my to-do list, so it's time for me to say goodbye.  I wish you all a crafty and joyful day ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
