Are you living up the Avengers hype? Speaking of Avengers, we'll be having another giveaway fairly soon. WOS is currently in the midst of setting things up. Watch for it! Now that I finished an incredibly busy week, I think it's time for me to unwind with some Avengers and some great tips from Ms. Ricky Eisen, Founder and President of Events and Celebrations by Between the Bread. She's got some great tips on how you can have your own Superhero Party. Start with simple invitations using cardboard cut-outs of bright blue stars. Write your party details out with a black marker and add decorations like POW!, ZAP! And WAM! to the front. Then get into the mood by decorating the party site with more cardboard cut-outs. They're simple and easy! Make spiders, neon green Hulk heads, American flags for Captain America and so on. This could be a fun crafts project for the kids, keeping them busy while having fun for hours. But best yet is the food!! Who doesn't love food? Since I was gone for several days this week and couldn't pack all of my Nutrisystem with me, I ate...and ate...and gained weight. LOL, but you can't not enjoy yourself, right? Ms. Eisen recommends finger foods like cut-out tea-sandwiches. Basically, use cookie cutters and cut your sandwiches into fun shapes like stars, spiders, and so on. Spice up your drinks with some Hulk green-themed ice-cubes. All you need is some food coloring. Then, is the party ending? Send them off with some cool Avengers sugar cookies to make them remember your sweet party forever! Here's the recipe:
Avengers recipe1. Use any sugar cookie recipe and use a cookie cutter to make character cookies. Can't find them? Just use any oval shaped cookie cutter then and flaunt those decorating skills! Once your cookies are baked and cooled, start decorating.
2. Use store-bought icing or make your own Royal Icing, using food coloring to create the necessary colors: green, yellow, blue, black, white, and brown. Place each color in a piping bag.
-Royal Icing: Mix 3 egg whites (dehydrated if possible), at room temperature, 4 cups powdered sugar, and 1/2 tsp cream of tartar with a little warm water until smooth. Add in optional food coloring.
3. Outline the cookie in your base color. Let's use the Hulk as our example, so outline the shape in green, then fill in the outline with green icing, covering the whole cookie. Tip: A paintbrush may make it a little easier to paint the cookie. Let the base dry for a few minutes before adding additional colors. Outline the Hulk's hairline in black and then fill it in with black icing. Use those artistic skills to continue bringing your favorite Avengers characters to life.

Have you heard about THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN that premiers on August 15th? If your answer is no, then find out with this newly released trailer. Or just watch it anyways, I was magical...And if you don't have a card made out for mom yet, here's a great free template to make a pop-up Mother's Day Card courtesy of The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
Remember the Disneynature conservation program “See ‘Chimpanzee’ Save Chimpanzees.” we were promoting earlier? Between April 20-May 3, 2012, those who saw Chimpanzee supported a great cause because for every moviegoer, Disneynature made a donation to Jane Goodall Instititute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. The conservation program helps to protect 129,236 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat and educate many on the importance of saving their habitat. It just goes to show that a little awareness and a little sharing can help to make our world a better place.
