DIY Dorm room mirror


Bringing you yet another fun and easy way to dress up your dorm or bedroom with this diy flower mirror.   Be sure to watch the video above to follow along and see how easy it is to put one of these together.

Here is the mirror all done. 
These would look so cute in your daughter's room or turning your door from drab to fab!

To get started purchase one of those inexpensive wall mirrors.  
I find mind at Target for $4.99
Next go to the Dollar Tree and buy at lease six bunches of flowers.
I chose the neutral colors so that it can go with any decor.

Next up,  remove all the flowers from the stems and arrange 
around the mirror to see how many you will need.

Before you glue the flowers down be sure and cut away the little nib on the back of the flower from where you removed it from the stem.  This will make gluing them down much easier. 

Now using a glue gun glue each flower right onto the frame of the mirror.  I could only find a black mirror and once I was done you couldn't see the black at all.

This process goes quite quickly.  
That's all it takes to turn your mirror into a fun happy mirror!
I hope I have inspired you to give this a try!

Bride to be

She's one sweet girl in our life and we got to shower her
with love and prayers and gifts this weekend!
Danielle has been a part of our family since she
was in 3rd grade and has been friends with my eldest 
daughter since. 

Brittany, Danielle and Shelby all smiles.....

Getting ready for lots of picture taking

Danielle and myself

I've shared many times the large paper flowers and
how to make them.   Here is how I used them for 
the shower.  I just tucked them into the greens, even
with a little bit of wind they didn't move.

I always use the chalkboards in my events to add
a special touch to the space, whether it's the wedding
date or a special saying.  

The hula hoop diy I showed last month that I used for my daughter's graduation party I also used for the shower. 
I used little scripture cards to surround their photo.

Such a beautiful day celebrating Danielle.
It was a full weekend, I was off to two more bridal showers celebrating new bride's to be-  aaaahhh...... young love!

Hello friends!
Hope you had a wonderful 4th, those of you stateside.
I have a few of these beauties available in the shop right now
They run a bit smaller than all my others tea towels (20 x 20)
which is your standard sized kitchen towel. 
I made them up for an event earlier this year and have about
10 left that are yours if you wish!

I am not going to post them to my Etsy shop since there are 
so few, so message me if you'd like to get your hands on one.

Rooted in Nature

Just a little nature card for you today.
Feeling a little "rooted in nature" these days and this 
card is made with the stamps in the set called
Rooted in Nature.  

These days I am super drawn to neutral organic colors.
I used gray granite ink and mossy meadow to create the 
colors scheme. The center piece of green is a pistachio pudding green cardstock  

I stamped separately the leaves then cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals.  
There is a lot of layering here but in a good easy way.

Below is the beautiful 
Rooted in Nature set
So many possibilites

Order # 146482 for $42.00

Bringing you some more of the gorgeous

silver lining. 

I just added the patterned paper to the center of the card 
and then added the grateful for you and some ribbon.

As you can see this paper is so pretty 

Here are all the sheets you get in the packet, also it's 
double sided which means you get to pick either side to
create with!

Gold Creek summer vibes

Happy friday!
I have shared this hike with you all before but this was the first time I have been there in the summer and the views 
were spectacular!
Such beauty and gorgeous colors!

My friend Cheryl and I and her caute cavi-poo Brooke
hiked out way around Gold Creek Pond 
(isn't Brooke a cutie!)

The lake was so clear and aqua blue in color.

The trail provides views of Gold Creek valley and Chikamin Peak 
in the Alpine Wilderness.  
Give it a try this summer if your looking for a local easy going hike.

This little puppers head tilt is just too cute!

Grad Party

What a fun weekend celebrating my girl's graduation!
So many friends and family showed up and I cannot thank you all for coming and sharing in Shae's accomplishment!
I wish I was able to get more photos of everyone but here are a few.....

Here are a few of the decor pics.

Remember the hula hoop photo rings I shared last month?
Here they are with all her pictures on them.

My girlfriend Kirstin owns this canoe and I was lucky enough to get to borrow it from her for the party.
We set it on top of some landscape rocks that are on our patio area and then put some 25lb arm weights inside to keep it secure.

I used a 10ft long piece of wood to run the entire length of the canoe in order to be able to set things on top for serving.  
I used white tablecloths to cover the wood.  I also used buckets in areas in the canoe where I could put the bowls of food or tortillas.

At each end of the canoe and in the center I put flowers that were in glass vases that I sent right down inside of the canoe.  It worked well and also filled up with ends.
It really turned out better than I ever expected!

We were really hoping for sunshine, it came around 5pm 
just shortly after everyone left, go figure.....
Still, it turned out to be a great celebration

Sweet friends.......
