Wedding Ideas

The wedding I was in, finally came and went. It seemed so far away for so long, then all of a sudden it's only days away. 
The bride did an amazing job, it was such a beautiful wedding with so many unique and special touches. Here's a little of what I did:

This was a fun sign to make- I used old boards from our deck we took down, and a little paint.

How cute are these little guys? I made the banner with a dowel, some canvas type fabric, ribbon and vinyl letters from my Silhouette.

It's hard to see in the photo above, but here are the button boutonnieres the boys are wearing. They were so fun to make!

I also made hangers for all the bridesmaids 
and of course the new Mrs. Yanez!

Congrats to the newlyweds...Love You!

His and Her Mugs

I've seen these cute mustache mugs everywhere in blogland and Pinterest.
Like here, here, and here.
I had a friends birthday coming up, and I knew she would love them!

They were so easy to make!
I bought some plain white mugs from Target, and used my Silhouette (with premium vinyl) to make a mustache and lips. Kinda like a his and hers cups.

 Too bad I didn't buy extra mugs, because I'd love to have a set for us!

 Happy Birthday Meg!

Elio's New Room

I painted my son's room a few months ago, but I just couldn't decide how I wanted to decorate it. I knew I wanted to keep it kinda simple.

We had an old deck that was pretty rotten, and my husband's been working hard to get it replaced.
We're crossing our fingers for it being done by the end of summer.
Anyway I used some of the old wood for a wedding sign, and at that point, I knew I wanted to try to incorporate it into Elio's room.

 I tried to choose pieces that had some personality (the really rotten ones!)

 This is the entry wall, you can see from our livingroom, so I wanted to keep it simple.

 I found this quote on Pinterest and I fell in love with it!

 I made this using my Silhouette.

 You can find the prints in this Etsy Shop
(They have some super cute things!) 

 He really does work, and my son loves him.

  This print was a card I found and I put a mat around it. I just love the hearts used as the zebra's stripes.

Of course, if you are going to hang up shelves that are as heavy as these, make sure you hang them on the studs. I used a stud finder which was a lifesaver. And don't forget to attach the boards to the brackets, it's especially important in a kids room.

Thanks for stopping by!

A friendly reminder for the little man in your life

Everyone that comes to our house gets a little chuckle when they lift up the toilet seat, plus my son always say's "Don't miss" when he uses the potty.

I made this with my silhouette, using black vinyl and one of the fonts that come with the program.

Lavender and Blush Bridal Shower

I went to a bridal shower for one of my girlfriends the other weekend. It was so much fun and one of the bridesmaids, Melissa who put it on, did such an amazing job.  I have to share it with you.

 Lavender, grey and blush were the colors for the shower.

Here's a few little things I made:

The banner said:
Going to the Chapel

This sign is for the actual wedding day.

Thanks for stopping by!
