April's Pinterest Party

Once again, I had two Pinterest Parties this month with a fun (and easy) craft for anyone!

Everyone personalized a canvas tote bag. As usual, I found a tutorial on Pinterest. I'm not patient talented enough to paint that lace pattern, so we painted over doilies to create the vintage feel.

Everyone chose a letter to stencil in the center. I hand-painted a monogram for one young participant and even created a more "boy" friendly pattern.

I have extra totes available if you're interested in purchasing one for yourself. These make great gifts..especially for teachers with the end of the year coming up! They'd also make perfect summer totes.

This weekend...

Linking up with Join the Gossip.

I had a really great weekend, but it didn't last long enough!

Friday night, we celebrated Emily over at Be Blessed, Y'all. Her birthday is tomorrow, so we celebrated a little early by eating at our fave local Mexican place and hanging out after.

Saturday started off with a great game of Ultimate Frisbee in the perfect weather!

That evening, I had a private jewelry party with a small group of girls from my church's youth group. Each girl got to design her own cross bracelet and assemble it to her perfect fit. They chose between silver and antiqued gold crosses and hardware and among blue, yellow, while, black, and brown leather for the straps. Everyone had a great time, and I hope they all enjoy their new custom bracelets!

After the jewelry workshop, my boy took me to see my old high school's production of Flashdance! I had never seen the movie, but we loved it! Everyone did a great job singing and dancing.

Oh, and I debuted my new mint pants!!

Sunday after church was a lazy rainy day, and I loved every second.

What I'm loving this Wednesday...

This Wednesday is a very special Wednesday.

Today marks 5 years that this guy has been mine...

We have been through a lot of good times as well as some very hard times over the years, but I wouldn't trade a second for anything else.

We went to Melting Pot to celebrate this weekend, and it was so amazing! I had never been to a fondue restaurant, and I loved it!

Happy Wednesday!
