Magnetic black dry erase board







I'd never seen a black dry erase board before (well I never really go to the school/office supply aisle except to buy pens, pencils, or paper) and when I saw that you use neon dry-erase markers to write on it I thought "how cute!?!" and I knew I wanted to spice it up for my cousin who's in high school. 
originally priced at $19.99 but I nabbed it at 40% off! Gotta love Michael's coupons!
The magnets that were in the store were cute but a little more than I wanted to spend so here comes the crafty part: How do I make my own super cute magnets at a low price? EASY! I had this collage of girly words on hand that I bought at Hobby Lobby when scrapbook paper was on sale 4/$1.00. 
Diva Words by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)

I cut some words/phrases (Diva, Beautiful, Absolutely Fabulous....), adhered the cut-outs to chipboard because the paper is thin, then adhered the magnet adhesive (small roll $1.00 at Michael's), and you got yourself cute, DIY magnets!

For the name plaque I took black chipboard and applied 1 coat of FolkArt ® Metallics - Sequin Black paint to make it shine, cut zebra paper 1 inch smaller and glued.  Stenciled name, painted with Apple Barrel ® Gloss™ - Glow-In-The-Dark Pink paint and covered with pink glitter. And just for a little more pizazz I glittered a few zebra stripes
glow in the dark name and stripes
DIY magnets= cute personal messages! Yes that does say Happy belated Birthday - I'm working on it.

Lucky in Love πŸ’›

Its always an honor to be apart of any event or someone's special day, but a wedding has an unique place in my heart. A couple's biggest day, the celebration, all the preparation and money that goes into making sure that it's their version of perfect and it goes on without a hitch. That is where I come in for this Lucky in Love couple. When Cyndi came to me about decorating I was all in before she could finish asking me to be their wedding decorator. This was the first wedding that I had more than just tablescapes to execute. I was in charge of crafting a picture frame photo prop, sweetheart table initials, flower girl basket. a bouquet with bling and boutonniere with style to match both Brides' personality πŸ˜‰.


The color scheme of gray, shades of yellow and a touch of sparkle were perfect for this 7-7-17 summer wedding. Cue the pictures:








Gender Reveal BaByQ theme

The mother-to-be's dad is a barber and her mother is a wonderful hairstylist (I know from first hand experience).  So the theme to the reveal party: Barber shop or Beauty shop? Clippers or Combs? 
My friend/hairstylist Kisha is always coming up with out-of-the-world (way beyond the box) themes for parties so I had to come through with her vision. You don't wanna even know what her first theme was gonna be 😣.

Hollywood Sweet 16!

I love any party theme but the Hollywood theme gets a little more love because you can be as glamorous as you want. 
I was tasked with making the rep carpet stanchions and "velvet" ropes and a mini step repeat background for a Sweet 16.  For the stanchions: concrete, small pie pans for the molds, PCV pipe, caps and sleeves (they might not be called that but you get the point), glitter tape, glitter sealer (it is a must trust me), 7/8" gold cup hooks and a drill to make the holes.
For the "velvet" ropes: installation tubes, fleece fabric, red ribbon, and plenty of hot glue πŸ˜‰
