Thanks, guys and gals!!
Again, thanks to all who participated in our first, ever giveaway!!
You all had such sweet comments, I really appreciate all the encouragement!
It looked like many of you thought of great uses for the chalkboard, but there can only be one winner.
Thanks to random.org, that winner is…
A sweet victory for a dear friend — Congrats, Megan!
As more of my crafts are posted on the virtue blog, I’ll host more giveaways so keep your eyes open.
That’s right, readers! I’m launching our first GIVEAWAY!
You all have been so supportive of my endeavors and I wanted to do a little something to say, “THANKS!”
Back in February I was asked by Cathe to do a guest post over at the Virtue site. (if you haven’t added it to your reader, you should). I was sick and wasn’t able to make the shoot, but I was so anxious to see how the photos and project turned out. My post went up yesterday and I was so thrilled with the result!
So, today I’m giving away my project!
If you’d like to add this fun chalkboard picture frame to your lovely home, here’s how to enter:1) Leave a comment below. 2) Make sure to include your name and email address so I can contact you if you win. 2) Please only comment once — multiple entries will not be counted. 3) Contest closes on Thursday at 8:00 am PST — that’s a WHOLE 24 hours, peeps! 4) The winner will be announced by 12:00 pm PST on Thursday.
This past weekend I had the privilege of doing a step-by-step DIY for the Women of the Well craft/cooking day.
The girls really loved getting creative with the projects. Adding tape here and there to create unique designs on the glass.
I even showed the girls some other fun projects you can do with the chalkboard paint. Here’s how to cover up an ugly lumber yard logo with the paint. Now you have a repurposed and custom mug to give as a gift for keep for yourself.
It was such a blast — Thanks girls!
I search, researched and discovered that it is a Quaker marriage certificate. It is a Quaker wedding tradition to have a marriage certificate. In fact, in a Quaker wedding there is no officiant. Instead, all the wedding guests sign the certificate of marriage. Most of these certificates required 7 – 10 days to complete due to the intricate decoration.
While I’m in full support of an officated wedding, I do think it’s a sweet tradition that could be implemented into a modern day wedding.
Next week our bible study group is planning on having a summer picnic. Naturally, the event planner in my head is swarming with ideas for fun summer picnic ideas from games, to food, to decor.
I went for a gander at good ‘ol Martha Stewart and found a really unqiue project that totally had me swooning…
This is just your ordinary picnic blanket folded into a picnic basket! How perfect is that?!
Come to the park with your picnic blanket and basket all in one. Set aside the food and un ravel your basket to reveal a picnic blanket.
The unfortunate down side?
Don’t forget to check out Martha’s amazing 60 Days of Summer ideas.
Oh, and happy summer!!
How adorable would any of these dresses be for a rehearsal dinner? Or how about a French themed Bachelorette party?!
You may have seen this adorable Rustic Baby Shower floating around the blogosphere, but I had to share it here! I love absolutely everything about this little shower. The colors, the invitations (done by Imprintables), all the sweet little details, etc.
