French memo board

Oooh lala is what I was thinking when I made this French inspired memo board.  Black and white damask fabric with pink ribbon. This was my first memo board and it came out great! Although I wish I could have found little Eiffel Tower brads or pins to go over the black decorative brads.... the search continues (lol).

This project is simple and easy to make. By changing the fabric, color, size of board, ribbon, or brads you can customize this project to fit your specific needs.

Damask fabric: $4
Ultra fine batting - $5 (I only used about 1/4 of the package)
12x24 wood board: $4
Pink ribbon - $1
Decorative brads - $1

other materials already on hand: staple gun, centering ruler and yard stick (measure and space ribbon diamonds), and hammer for the brads.

If you make one or are inspired by my post/project please leave a comment or post a picture!

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:

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). 

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 😣.
