Party Preview

Both of my little ones have birthdays coming up in the coming weeks. Gavin my youngest loves animals and so I have created a Safari Theme for his party this weekend. This is a little preview of more pictures to come. I have had a lot of fun planning his party. I cant wait to see him get excited over all the jungle stuff. Planning parties on a dime with very inexpensive decorations is another favorite hobby of mine. When I post the pics of his party I will give ya'll a break down of my budget. Then u can see it doesn't take a lot of $$$ to host a great party, it just takes creativity.Oh...and a little time too!

Spring Blocks

I finished these darling blocks for my mantel a while ago but as life goes I haven't had much time to share them with you.

I had my dear husband cut and sand the blocks for me. I spray painted them white then added paper to the fronts with modge podge. My trick for getting the paper really flat is to use a very thin layer of modge under the paper then use a credit card to smoothe. Make sure you let each layer dry for at least 20 minutes.

Then I added "Spring" vinyl right over the top. You can make these for any season. A very easy, affordable project.
