Project #1: Wedding Plate for Julia
We were not able to spend Christmas this year with Julia and her fiance Darrell, but I wanted to send her a fun gift for Christmas to also celebrate her wedding. I loved having a wedding plate in our kitchen (until three years ago when Brent broke it, but that's a story for another day!) I went to the Mad Potter in Houston with my friend from church and painted this wedding plate for Julia to put in her new kitchen.
this idea and I finally stole it. She makes the cutest little Christmas card tree to display her cards each year. We usually put ours on the fridge, but it was looking a little cluttered this year, so I decided to try the tree. I had the branches from Wendy's baby shower blessing branch, so I re-purposed them, and I love the effect! It looks great in this un-used space in our dining room.
Project #3: Screen with Fabric
A long time ago, my mom gave me a cute wooden screen with picture frames. I loved having it in my room in Dallas. It's been sitting in our empty room for years now, waiting to go someday in a baby room. Well today I got tired of waiting for a baby room, so I fixed it up Katie style to go in our living room. I am obsessed with the result. I picked out some cute fabric at Hobby Lobby and taped it in the picture frames! It is a foolproof project. When I look at this part of my living room now, I kind of catch my breath because I love it so much!!
Since my sister is getting married in March, we are having a wedding shower for her in February, and I got a little excited about making some things for the shower. I got the idea for this banner from my friend Mindy's adorable baby shower banner here. I copied it with our shower colors, and I totally love the final product! The letters have this pretty Martha Stewart gold glitter outlining them. It's kind of hard to see in the picture, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
