Kristin + Randall's Wedding

My friend Lynn asked me to make a banner + confetti for her daughter Kristin's wedding shower and I was delighted to do it!
A few months later in preparing for wedding photographs, my friend Ashley (of Faith Photography) asked me to make a matching 'Wedding Date Banner' + 'Mr & Mrs Banner'.

Oh how I loved making banners for both occasions as this beautiful couple walked down the path to their new life together

Praying For Mommy

On the way to school in the morning Griffin and I say our prayers out loud. This morning he prayed for me. 'Dear God please help Mommy with her attitude'. I'm pleased he thought about me and I'm guessing this prayer request has something to do with the fact I made him wear jeans and a nice shirt to school because it is picture day. He was fighting me every step of the way. It is refreshing he knows he can talk with God about anything and everything.

Stellabration ~ Chevron Letter Banner

Chevron is my favorite print so when Sarah asked me to make a banner for her daughter Stella's birthday party I was delighted! Stella had a rainbow themed birthday party so we chose to make the layered letter banner in the colors of the rainbow

The Little Me

Giggle from yesterday ~ Mike told Griffin to go upstairs and get his globe from his room when he was working on his school project. He brought it down and Mike realized it was just about to fall apart and decided to fix it for him. When Mike asked Griffin how it got in the condition it was in he said ~ Don't ask me, ask the 'little me'. Once I realized what he meant I busted out laughing. The 'little Griffin' would sit and spin & spin the globe on the axis. THAT is how it got in the condition it was found in.

Griffin's Map Project

Griffin spent this afternoon working on his 'World Map' project. I'm sooooo proud of him!! He did the majority of the work himself. {with just a little itty bitty help from me} He traced the continent patterns from the reverse side. That took a little while for him to understand why he had to do it that way so the ink marks will not show. I did help him cut them out once he traced them. He typed up the labels and titles and cut them out with a paper cutter. {he loved doing that!} And he put everything together and glued it down. I am incredibly proud of his hard work!! Way to go buddy!!
