Halloween DIY Succulent Desk Decor


Hey y’all! I’m back! It’s been a while. Here’s a fun an easy project to perk your desk life up just in time for Halloween. It’s sooo easy to make. All you need is some pots, paint and these FREE svg’s I created below. Let’s get started! Here’s a quick video to show just how simple it is!!




  1. Paint pots using acrylic paint and foam brush.

  2. Download SVG’s above and extract them. They’re compressed into a zipped folder.

  3. Open up your SVG’s in a cutting program like Cricut Design Space

  4. Measure your pots. I used 2” wide by 1.5” high.

  5. Weed excess vinyl and place transfer tape on top.

  6. Adhere vinyl quotes to your pots.

  7. Add your soil, succulents and ADMIRE!


I Got Invited To Facebook Headquarters!!

So, this post is a little late but within reason. I have been super busy over the last 30 days! One of the biggest highlights was getting invited to go to Facebook Headquarters to attend the Facebook Communities Summit!

Here’s an inside look at my journey to Facebook!


I got into the groove of working at home, creating and teaching others how to make awesome party favors and more. I was missing one thing…CO-WORKERS! Believe it or not, its possible to miss having co-workers! I wanted to create a space where I could go and meet other like-minded individuals in my industry, grow, network, inspire and be inspired. I hopped on Facebook and started a group that I decided to name PARTY MAVENS! It’s been a wild ride ever since! I’ve met so many influential women and men, gained life long friends, built partnerships and worked with tons to create so much Maven Magic. I’m still in awe!



Facebook made me a POWER ADMIN!! Sounds super important, huh? To be honest…I didn’t even know what it meant at first or if I deserved such a title but I accepted and never looked back. So what’s a power admin? It’s a position for those who run totally awesome groups on Facebook, we’re in a special group where we hear about and discuss new features before they come on Facebook. We voice our concerns and needs as group admins on Facebook and most importantly…THEY LISTEN! It’s like a really awesome admin focus group!



If being a Power Admin over the last year wasn’t enough, FB decided to go ahead and top it by inviting me to Facebook Headquarters. That’s when it got real!! There were interviews and EVERYTHING! Y’all know I haven’t interviewed in years but apparently talking way too much paid off! They said I answered all the questions before they got a chance to ask them. I’m still trying to figure out if that was a compliment…teehee!



Fast FWD to Feb 2019, headed to Facebook Headquarters not imagining how life changing the experience would truly be! I took my sis/biz partner with me to keep me grounded because she always gives me the real. No Beyonce egos over here when she’s around! These pics seriously don’t even do it justice. The networking, business advice, friendships and fun that took place was immeasurable. Still pinching myself. I literally get asked about my experience once a day and I’m just enjoying reliving the magic over and over!

If you’re a party enthusiast and not apart of my super awesome group on facebook click the link below to join! We would love to have ya!!

Once you have the project open in DS, hit “Make It” to cut your vinyl. You can choose to cut all at once, as I showed in the video or cut each color vinyl one at a time. Totally up to you. I used scraps that would all fit on the mat together, so I cut at one time. This is how my mat looked with the scraps!

The only thing left to do is Weed your vinyl pieces, grab your glasses, apply the vinyl and prepare to toast it up with your gals!

If you’re not planning a bash, these make really fun gifts too. Fill with candy, place in a cellophane treat bag and tie with a ribbon. Hand them out to coworkers and of course your besties!

Hope you enjoyed!!
