Cookies for Santa



We always leave a treat for Santa Claus by the Christmas tree so I thought why not make a cute sign that we can use for years to come.

Very easy to make Christmas project that kids can help with or can make on their own (with adult supervision of course).

Materials used:
• 12x6 piece of wood that I had in my craft supply box but you could use chipboard, wood, even poster board.
• Creative Imagines 12x12 gingerbread scrapbook paper
• Dark brown, red, and white paint
• small wooden men ($1.50 for a pack of 4 at Michael's)
• red letter stickers
• red felt
• red ribbon
• glitter
• sealer and varnish for wood
• hot glue gun and glue sticks
• *staple gun (optional)

Directions:
•Apply sealer to wood and gingerbread men, let dry then paint brown. Cut the scrapbook paper 1/2 inch smaller than wood and adhere to board.

• *Use staple gun to attach ribbon to board for hanging (optional) or board could be placed on easel or simply propped on something to display.

•Decorate the "cookies" by covering with glitter, painting faces, or outlining with paint to look like real gingerbread cookies.

•Apply varnish to cookies and around edges of wood.

•Adhere cookies and letters to board.

Sleeping On Clouds (Baby Photography)

There is nothing sweeter or more angelic than a sleeping baby. When my son was a baby I could stare at him for the longest time just admiring his little features and waiting for him to smile on his sleep.
Little Miss A'Niya Mecole inspired me to make this scene to photograph her sleeping so angelically.
I used her changing table and most materials were purchased from my favorite store Hobby Lobby: the sky background (bulletin paper), fabrics, flowers, and clouds (pillow stuffing). 






Beach Theme Wedding Reception

The lovely Mr. & Mrs. Morgan went the destination wedding route and recited their vows on a beautiful sandy beach in Mexico. Then decided to bring the beach (theme) back to the great state of Texas to celebrate with family and friends. 
For this beach inspired reception we went with teal, seashells, pearls, candles, burlap and sand decor with shimmery accents.
 One of the highlights of the decor was this fabulous gold sequin backdrop with a teal curtain that everyone struck a pose in front of.


The beach sand trays, vellum and sequins lampshades, fishing net wrapped mason jars, and hand painted and glittered shells decor were all custom made (by The CGD studio of course).

Lucky in Love 💛

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 😉.


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:
