Holly Leaf Place Cards

Martha and her posse have done it again! These pretty place cards are easy and cheap! It cost me about $2 for the silver pen and just 30 cents for the paper (I used a red card stock I found in the scrapbook area).

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake Pops!!

Let them eat Cake...Pops!

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake Pops
One of my favorite things has to be Cake balls and even more fun then that is cake pops! So for the ladies Christmas gathering I knew what had to be the favor! Plus I I owed my cousin Paul some for his birthday! It was a win win. Since these little bugers can be a little difficult to make I figured that I would share a how to with you! I know the first time I made them I could have used a detailed how to. So here it goes!


Decking the Halls

I have been trying really hard lately to come up with personal DIY gifts for the holidays. This is not an easy task lol. In order to make personal gifts for all those on my "to-buy-for" list I have to know them on a personal level. But here is a little gift that I came up with from something I saw on anthropologie's website. (have I mentioned how much I seriously LOVE anthro?? because I do!) Any-who. Here is it. All you need is...

Centerpiece Mock-Up

Alright! Now this is a fun thing to post! I have been collecting milk glass for months and vintage books for a few months as well. We also want to do burlap runners and some kind of fake flower. Our theme is Vintage Garden...and the reception is at the Cleveland Zoo! Cant wait!! Ok...with out further ado...

Initialed Glasses

A birthday craft!

So the picture above is what I was originally going for... but lets just say I went through alot of trouble for the etching paste that I was using not to work...So I decided to but some window paint that said it was dishwasher safe...again a fail...apparently you need some special sealant for that to work....I digress... Finally I found the right stuff for the job! I will post a pic of it soon. But it looks like a pen, I found it in the stained glass section of Jo-anns. Its called DecoArt glass paint marker. Its a beauty! paint it on. put it in the oven. All set! But ill still describe how the little beauty works!

The Setting

Who knows where the ceremony will end up. But we do know that the reception will be one wild time! The reception will take place at the cleveland Zoo! We will party the night away with the monkeys and the sharks! YAY! The Zoo has always been one of our favorite date spots. In our minds there is no better way to spend a day together, thus being why we chose it for our reception :) Lucky for us the venue will not need much TLC. It is practically perfect! But of course we do have some ideas to make it our own... Don't worry! I'll share!

The low down

Where to start...

After saying that I would start a blog for awhile I have finally done it! A feat that I am not sure I should have taken on. But we will just have to see where it takes me :) Engaged in May, School from May-August. A crazy dog that requires the vet's attention much too often, and a car that likes my dad wayyyyyy too much. A fiance that is sadly away in LA for the summer, and a head that wonl't stop spinning. This has been nothing short of my craziest, busiest summer yet. But I have decided to take a step into this blogging thing, hopefully it will calm and relax me. Here goes nothin...
