Today we enjoyed each others company by spending time w family and friends over Easter dinner. There were games, eggs, coloring, and lots of food and drinks. I'm glad I have a loving place to go on days like this. Soo grateful. I love my family.
Egg faces of Charlie and Jen, festive devil eggs, and coloring.
We decided to go diy on the save the dates. It was actually more work than we expected. Printing, signing, pining, design, cutting, stamping etc.
I love the picture that was taken during our engagement session by my sisters. The paper was hand picked for style and thickness. Our design was made with the concept of reminding everyone of the date in the form of the calendar. A heart shaped pin was inserted on our wedding date. The envelope had or logo and each invite was hand written and stamped with a seal. My family was like an assembly line to make over 120 invites.
These are two diy projects I'm playing around w for the bridal shower.
FYI Kathy and my mom did a great job on the bridal shower invites. I'm truly stunned at how beautiful they look. When they start to arrive I will post a pic here.
Thank you , you guys !
We went out today looking for another vendor, but this time it was flowers! Charlie's sister Jen recommended this guy who gave us these to take home. We've been to 7 different flower shops and have gotten various arrangement ideas, but we are exhausted. We will pick soon. These are not the colors.
How to photo transfer onto a canvass.
1. You need: blank canvass, photo from a laser (clearer image) , or an ink jet printer. (Not a reg photograph), and a gel medium. Water.
2. Cover the the blank canvass in a gel medium evenly.
3. Place the photo gently over the canvass (image side down) wrapping its sides.
4. Smooth out and allow to dry
5. After the canvass is dry, use a paintbrush or fingers to satuate the paper with water and slowly remove the printer paper once fully wet. (You will notice it is easy to remove the paper by rubbing it in circles gently). Rub soft so the image doesn't smear.
I wanted a more distressed look therefore I used an inkjet printer image over a laser printer image. I think it looks cool. You will see it at our next upcoming event.
We celebrated out 2nd St. Patricks day together and we couldn't be happier. The green is in the air. We had cornbeef , cabbage , and Charlie's very own ziti. Mmm delicious. The luck of the Irish was with us, even though we didn't have the winning lotto scratch off we celebrated together and that's better than winning the lotto. (Right). Together we made our irish shirts, next time we will read the directions twice. ;) glad to spend the day w good ppl.
