I have been wanting a cute message board in my kitchen so I can write inspirational quotes, reminders, Honey-Dos, and more. There was a similar butcher paper design on Pinterest, and my husband and I decided to Jazz in up a bit. We stained all the wood, and found colored butcher paper. My favorite part is the stained carved trim. Hope you like it!

This was the original I saw on pinterest….


How We Met

I made this graphic for my welcome bags for my wedding. We printed it on cream/ecru card stock, and tied it on light green bags with gold ribbon. I could not have done it without my sister, mom, and bridesmaids! The back of the tags had a picture of us, and a sweet letter to the out of town guests.



This project was really fun! I used lyrics from some of my favorite Christmas songs, a font that looks like stitching, and I created a stitch-like poinsettia pattern! See how it turned out!

This is the electronic copy I created.
Next, I printed it out on pearly/ shimmery cream paper.
Then I used an Exacto knife, a ruler, and a self- healing cutting mat to cut them out. Obviously you can use scissors too!
MY favorite is “Jesus, Born on this Day”
Finished and on the gift! (or you can punch a whole and tie onto present!)

Our First Christmas Tree

This has been a very exciting season so far, and its only DECEMBER 1st! I finally got the house all decorated and ready for the festivities that December will bring! Chris and I have had a blast getting the house all decorated, so I hope you enjoy! We decorated with a lot of copper and brown, maybe in the future we can mix in a fun color!
