Happy Birthday Megan!

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Whenever people meet Megan and I at the same time, they almost always comment on the fact that we sound alike.  We use all the same strange vocabulary and vocal mannerisms.  So much so that Megan can trick Corey into thinking that she is me on the phone.  There is a very simple reason for this.  I’ve spent most of my life looking up to my cool big sister, emulating her and of course repeating all of her questionable fashion choices (most famously, the pink plaid pants in 6th grade).  I’m sure she is glad that I have grown out of hiding her belts under my pillow so I would be able to wear them to school.  Thankfully, she’s not only a terrific big sister, but also a pretty spectacular role model.  I feel ever so lucky to have her.  Happy Birthday Meg!  I hope you get all the delicious Mexican food, cake, and fluffy kitty cats that your heart desires.  Love you!

Meg’s Birthday Party

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Corey and I threw a bit of a last minute birthday party for Meg this past weekend.  Her birthday is this week I’ve been so preoccupied trying to plan our California trip in early May that I basically forgot to get my act together until a week ago or so.  Luckily, our friends are the best and were game for a low key cookout.  Corey’s sister Katie was a complete gem and helped me decorate with some small touches here and there.  She made lots of those pretty paper flowers and used my newly purchased star punch to make things festive by basically throwing stars everywhere.  Here are some pictures taken frantically in the last few free minutes before the people arrived.  Let’s talk about how much I need a tripod.  These are so grainy.

Twisted Tissue Garland {DIY}

Friday, August 9, 2013

I wanted to make some quick and easy garland in a mint color for Colleen’s birthday game night and I remembered a garland that Colleen had made previously that used crepe streamers.  The only problem was that I couldn’t find any crepe streamers in a minty color in any of my usual haunts and I had no time to wait for them to be delivered.  So I improvised by buying a couple packs of lovely mint tissue paper from Hobby Lobby confident that I would be able to make something work.  I am actually pretty happy with the way it turned out and liked how the slightly imperfect nature of the twisted tissue contrasted with the neat little circle garland that I had on hand.

What you’ll need:

- a few packs of tissue in the color of your choice

- scissors

- white covered floral wire or something else similar to connect your links

What you’ll do:

1.  Cut strips of tissue about 4″ or so in width.  I made this faster by leaving the tissue stacked and cutting lots of sheets at the same time.

2. Leaving about a half an inch to an inch on either end, twist the tissue into little circles.  Holding your thumb on the tissue in the middle of the circle helps them to form.  Work down the length of your tissue.

3.  Finish by using a small length of the floral wire to attach each link of the garland together.  The links are rather small but it actually doesn’t take very long at all to make a long garland with your links.

Just a quick, cheap and versatile little garland idea if you are looking for a festive touch for your next party.  Or maybe just your life.  This garland is still up at my house and let’s face facts…there is no telling when it will be coming down.

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope y’all have an awesome weekend!
