This weekend was kind of a quiet one.
Got some leg work done at the gym with this sweetheart.
I started prepping for mini’s birthday party including playing with fondant for cake toppers. I accidentally made Anna smaller than Elsa so I’m probably going to redo them but I thought they were kind of cute.
I also put together some table centerpieces. -These were super easy and made with stuff I had at home.
The jars are bath and body candle jars that I cleaned out when they were finished. I had card stock in silver that I cut into strips and used a hot glue gun to attach to the jar. I crumpled up blue tissue paper and used that for filler.
Then I cut number 3s out of the silver card stock and taped them to skewers. I found glitter snowflakes when I was shopping for theme stuff and used those attached to skewers too. Boom done.
I also did a cool DIY with these lamp bases that I found on sale at Joann.
I got 2 matching ones to go on our bedside tables, now I need to find lampshades that I like.
They started off clear and with a texture inside but I was really digging the Mercury look so I bought some looking glass spray paint and sprayed the inside. I also sprayed it with a vinegar water solution and blotted it with a paper towel to get this effect.
Saturday we spent most of the day at our friend’s house warming party. Mini had some little friends to play and we got to know her family and other friends a little better. It was a nice day but we were so tired that by the time we got home at like 930 that we all fell asleep before 10!
Sunday we woke up to the terrible news of the tragedy that happened at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
It broke my heart to hear of the senseless acts of people who fill their hearts and minds with hate. It’s crazy what happened and I pray for the families of those affected and for the survivors that now learn to cope with what they just endured. Hug your loved ones a little closer and don’t forget to tell them how much you love them.
