1 of 2

I met with a beautiful bride to be the other day and I had so much swirling around in my head of ideas for her as soon as I got back to my office I started putting things together and I have redone this board 2x's but I think I have it the way I want it...but made another, just in case... so this is #1 of 2 for Leslie (and her mom) :0)



I needed to make a change...I went BRIGHT!!!!!!!!!
Do you love it??
Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday weekend, I know I will!!

Pool Decor

I know for some of the readers on this blog you are thinking why is she writing about pool's, I still have snow in the yard! But I live in SWFL and its hot down here and so that's why :0)

I have a wedding next weekend for the lovely Crystal and Jon super cute couple and her mom (which is super cute too) is having the rehearsal dinner at her house and they have a beautiful pool (& fountain) with a wonderfully landscaped area and she wants to decorate the pool so without further ado here is some fun pool decor!!

Fun right??

DIY Hanging Votive Holders

I found this on the nettleton hollow blog

Here are some instructions for making your own hanging votive holders, which should take less than 5 minutes per votive.

Votive Holders (that open as they go upward - straight cylinders won't work);
Floral Tape;
Fine Wire;
Wire Cutters (or heavy scissors).

1. Wrap your floral tape (or masking tape, although you'll probably have to sacrifice that votive holder) around the top of the votive holder. This is CRUCIAL for a happy votive-making experience - Â it helps keep the wire in place as you wrap it.

2. Wrap the wire around the top of the votive a few times, then bend each end backwards so it stays in place. Note that once you are finished, you coil will sit lower on the votive than here, so keep that in mind when you are wrapping. Cut the wire from the spool, and slide the coil off of the votive holder.

3. Wrap the ends of the wire back around the coil to keep the coil from springing apart.Â
4. Attach the handle by simply wrapping the ends of a length of wire around opposite sides of the coil.

The finished hanging votive holder - after all my past attempts, doing it this way was surprisingly quick and easy.

Now for the beautiful finish~

Wrap it up

I hope I am not super late on this band wagon!!
Please tell me I am not the last to know about Name Maker products!!

Can I tell you that I have an obsession with gift wrap, you know when the kids come around right before Thanksgiving fundraising for their schools and they give you this catalog of ridiculous priced crap and then you turn to the last page and it is filled with the most beautiful foiled wrapping paper, for me it is like a moth to the flame it just draws me in! I have rolls upon rolls of wrapping paper, some never used and when my husband sees another walk in the door he gives me that look (you know what I am talking about) like I just brought home another pair of shoes or something...

So if I am not the last one to know about these great products than please join me in drooling over this!!

The Princess Program

I was over at Life Design and she posted about this and I thought I would help her spread the word.

The Princess Program is a program of Hope & A Future Inc., a public nonprofit organization whose mission is to “provide hope for the future” to youth who have been abused and neglected.

Who doesnt love feeling like a princess even if for a night??

The Princess Program provides teenage girls who reside in foster care a night to SHINE by hosting a formal ball! We are dedicated to creating positive memories for these special young women. Each foster child who attends will receive a formal dress, shoes, make-up, jewelry, duffel bag, wrist corsage and a tiara. They are pampered by make-up artists and hair dressers. After an elegant dinner, a dance instructor will teach the girls several different dances. All of the night’s memories will be captured by our professional photographers and each girl will receive a personalized photo album.
You can help make someone’s dreams come true!
We need donations of the following items:
*Lightly worn Formal Prom or Bridesmaid Dresses
*Strapless Bras
*Lightly worn formal shoes
*New Make-Up
*Party Purses
*Hair Accessories

contact: Amanda Lennberg @ 602.741.2633 or
She will be collecting donations until 04.11.08
