Happy Anniversary

Yesterday was my son & daughter-in-law's 2nd wedding anniversary. We knew we wanted to give them a little something for their upcoming trip. But I wanted to add something else....enter Pinterest! Yup...yet another idea from Pinterest. Have I mentioned how much I love Pinterest!! :) This is their wedding date drawn on with a fabric marker. I added the flower for some fun but I couldn't stop there...

This is the back of the pillow. I decided to add a little pocket to tuck their gift in. I love how it all turned out! Much better than just a card with some money inside wouldn't you say?!!  And it fits the bill for the second anniversary traditional gift of cotton!

The Perfect Way to Welcome Spring!

Saturday I had eight ladies over for a "Spring Crafting Day". We had such a good time! The weather was great too. I gave the ladies two projects to choose from... covered books or a sign. For the ones that chose the sign I gave them the option of using Easter bunny type words or Christian words. Everyone chose the Christian words.

We also covered some eggs with decoupage & torn book paper. Then colored, glittered and wrapped with ribbon & string.

 Of course I always have to include a little something for each person. :)

      There were plenty of snacks & finger food to carry us through the afternoon. Even some rootbeer floats!

               And what Easter/Spring event doesn't need a little carrot cake.

                                                        And carrots!!

These are Britni's beautiful books! The edges are painted and glittered & each gal made a little tag to go along with it.

                                               Here are a few signs in progress.

And a few finished!

All in all it was a fun, relaxing day spent with great friends!!! Thanks to all the ladies that joined me for the afternoon! Happy Easter!!
