DIY- Wedding Ornament

This is a DIY that I have been wanting to create since we tied the knot! Yes, its been over three years! I just couldn't part with our left over wedding the other day I pulled them out of hiding and got to work. I found this idea over on weddingbee. Here is the post I did a few year ago! Wow..haven't been over there in a long time!

Here is the finished product! I want to say it looks better in person!! It will look even better on our Christmas tree this year!!!

First cut your invitation into strips. Then roll them up somewhat tight..I used a piece of tape to secure them. I also let them sit for a day prior to placing them in the glass ornament just incase the tape gave way.. It did happen quite a bit!

I won't lie..this project took me a while to complete! It also depends on the size of ornament. Or you could just place the strips inside the ornament.(see below) It takes like no time at all to complete. I think it also depends on colors of your invitation. If you have a very colorful invite it would look great. Since a huge part of my invite is white I had to really try to keep the green showing as much as possible. 

 Soon as we put up our Christmas tree I will snap some pictures of them! We have one of our invitations framed and I love looking at it..but now I get to use them again. It is such a great way to use your left over invites..and have such a meaningful ornament.

Just an Idea!

Soon as I saw this clever and inspiring idea over at Homestead Survival I had to share.

We tend to focus on the negative...and totally forget all the wonderful and positive moments in our lives...  How about we start with an empty jar and throughout the year write down those "positive" moments... they can be big and small :) 

So much can happen in your first year of marriage!!

Then, on New Years eve or your anniversary... sit down and reminisce all those "positives" and good times!

Remember..involve your partner, fiance, spouse and even children!

Love Cake?

Saw this and had to share!!!
It says.. "Welcome Spring, bring on Summer!"

When we lived in California, I hit up most of the famous bakeries.. One of those places was the Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica...  I ordered a birthday cake for my Hubby one year and it turned out ahhhmazing! Worth every penny...   So, naturally I follow their work...and when I saw this... My eyes lit up!
