Jar of Hearts


For Mother’s Day me and my husband gave his mom money to spend at her up coming beach trip! We didn’t want to just hand her cash and send her on her way so I decided to fold them into little origami hearts and fill a jar.

First, you will need to learn how to fold money into an origami heart. I learned from Huy Bui on snapguide.com

DIY Date Coupons

I made these coupons for one of my friends as a baby shower gift. These will keep the romance alive, and give the parents a much needed break.

What you will need:

1. Avery: matte white business cards – You can get these anywhere they sell office supplies. Walmart, Staples, Officemax, etc.
2. Template for Microsoft word: You can use mine or edit it and create your own – Date Coupon Template
3. Bakers twine – optional

Edit the template, print, break apart, tie together with pretty bakers twine, and give them as a gift or keep them for you and your hunny. Simple and cute.

I made my coupons very simple and plain. I had plans to spice them up with some color, but I opted out. I really like the clean look, but who knows maybe I will go back and edit them. Here is a great idea!

DIY Pompom Garland

I am making these for a baby shower. I wanted to make a garland, but it was way too tedious to tie a knot on every pompom and string them one by one. So I thought of a very simple solution…..SEW them together.

Sew tissue paper pompoms in one line before opening/fluffing them up. Voila you have a pompom garland. SO EASY!

I am sorry for the bad quality photos, but I snapped them with my cell phone. 





Stop Motions

Here are a few stop motions I made for some girls off of weddingbee and a friend. These took so much time. My favorite stop motion is the one I used to invite the girlies in my wedding. Unfortunately youtube took the sound off because I did not have permission to use the song. I will post it when I get home.
