THE SECRET NO ONE WANTS TO SHARE For those mommies who have already DIY-ed (or at least attempted to) their child’s party, we are kindred spirits. After all, Party Magic all began with a sketch, an idea, and my wild assumption that I could DIY-to-death my own daughter’s party. And as kindred spirits, we all share a secret.
