    DIY Victorian Favor Bag

    When Paula from the Knot contacted Something Old Something New to create a DIY favor for her new blog I was ecstatic! Her blog, My DIY Wedding Day is chalk full of lovely DIY projects for you crafty brides!

    I consulted with my partner (mom) and we came up with this lovely!
    This project is so simple! Here is what you need:Materials:

    2 3/4" x 4" cotton muslin drawstring bags (find them in bulk at Celestial Gifts on Etsy)
    Rubber stamp with image of your choice (this one was customized by The Paper Princess)
    Scrap of poster board or thick cardstock
    Treats, birdseed, or whatever else you'd like to fill the bags with
    Pretty embellishments (we used a vintage-ish velvet flower)

    Step 1: Slip a piece of poster board or cardstock inside a muslin bag. This will keep the ink from bleeding through to the other side when you stamp.
    Step 2: Stamp your image on the bag.
    Step 3: Fill with your favors. Sweet treats work well for this project. You can also fill the bags with birdseed, eco-friendly confetti or something else for guests to throw at you and your partner as you exit the ceremony.
    Step 4: Embellish with ribbon, flowers or whatever else you'd like.

    Check out this project and more at My DIY Wedding Day!

    Bake for Hope Part 2

    Here are some terrific pictures from the Bake for Hope Sale at Sugar Babys. Everything looks so cute! Jennifer aka "Little Miss Cupcakes" treats (above) look great!
  • Shabby Shells

    Spotted these pretty shells at such pretty things earlier today. How perfect would these be for a shabby chic seaside weddding? They would be so easy to make: buy shells, pretty pastel paint, and glitter from craft store and get to work!
  • Fig + Sage

    This is my second entry into the My Island Wedding Inspiration Board Contest. It is very similar to my own wedding; however, my colors were eggplant and sage. I really love how these colors and textures give this board a very natural, elegant, organic feel.

    Check out the entries over at My Island Wedding. There are so great boards. I am going to enter my sunshine one as well. Voting starts tomorrow :-)

    Hello Sunshine

    Oh how I love the sun! We have had nothing but dreadful, rainy weather here the last week. When I saw his sun goddess I longed to bask in the sun....but I am stuck inside instead.... and so I have created a bright, sunny, lemony goodness inspiration board to cure me of my sun deprivation
