live, laugh, love

I've never seen a bride as beautiful as Jessica or seen my brother so happy. This craft is in honor and inspired by the returning honeymooner's. Here's a very easy project that costs less than two dollars. All the supplies you need are a couple sheets of vellum (or very thin copy paper), any drinking glasses you have handy, and some tea lights. You can print words and pictures on the paper and then fold or wrap around the glass and tape to the sides. I threw some decorative rocks around the candles and it turned out super cute!

summer evening dance

This one is a really easy art project that your kids will love and you can get as creative as you want! I used a recycled board from my garage and sealed it with acrylic gloss. Then painted some simple grass and a big blue sky with stars. I had a photo of the fabulous Wood family dancing at the most amazing wedding this weekend, so I cut them out and glued them on to their new summer dance floor. I added some simple dot flowers and surreal floating shadows, but the sky really is the limit and your kids will love to see your family's picture come to life!

perfectly purple polka-dot party

Late summer gardens are so beautiful with their rich end of season blooms. Pick an area of your yard and embrace the color, in this case it's a corner with 3 large Russian Sages. Cut out polka dots in the same color as the flowers, and fill up a vase...very simple for an outdoor party perfect for any age or gathering.
