St. Patrick Themed Baby Shower

It is so many ways you can decorate any holiday themed party or shower- and that can be a good and bad thing because of the endless possibilities. For this St. Patrick's themed baby shower we (the mom-to-be's sister and I) had plenty of ideas but we decided to focus on three elements: the pot of gold, the rainbow and shamrocks.

I love that food and candy are one of the easiest ways to incorporate colors and add to the theme. This array of fruit was for the guess to make their own skewers for the chocolate fountain. 




A round glass bowl with a green tulle bow, scrapbook paper cut into strips and adhered to water bottles and glass bowls was very inexpensive (especially if you can catch a deal like 5 for $1 at Michael's or Hobby Lobby )



Pots of Gold: flower pots painted black with Rolos candies as the gold nuggets.



Wish i had a better picture of the ribbon rainbow I made ( note to self- make sure to hire a photographer). Instead of a pot of gold at the end of it there was somethi…

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). 






Avast, me hearties!

I am aware that Halloween was about four months ago but due to moving and my house being turned upside down I am just now finding the time (and my memory card) to upload my projects :).


Every captain needs a ship so when I learned that this adorable lil buccaneer needed a ride I was much obliged to make one for Captian Jax.

Materials:
Foam board
Foam sheets
Glue gun and plenty of glue sticks
Paint
Letter stamps
Black handkerchief
Skull cutout
Yard stick
Duct tape

Dabbling In photography

As a crafter I've always had an eye for looking at objects or people in a different way. When I make anything I try to keep two things in mind: the cost and the result. If I can create something that's beautiful yet inexpensive I'm one happy crafter!

My friend, Ranisha (pictured below) wanted to take preggo pics and I offered my services to save money.
Now I'm not a professional photographer but I do love to take pictures of my friends and family, so I thought what the heck I'd give it a go.

Ranisha has a beautiful home that gets plenty of natural light so little effort was made when taking the pictures. I styled her by added some accessories from my own stash (the pearl necklace and ring and sheer polka dot gloves).


A huge thanks to my iPhone and Instagram here are the results:
