Baby Evie Photo Shoot




I had the honor of taking newborn pictures of Lil Baby Evie today! Isn't she a precious baby?
I'm thinking I should do this on the side. I love taking pictures of babies. It's kind of hard to get good shots due to wiggling and crying but somewhere in the 100 pictures taken there are a few gems.

DIY Eucalyptus Wreath




Hobby Lobby has a pretty cool eucalyptus garland strand for $19.99...I got mine on sale 50% off. If you go to get one and they are not on sale, you can use the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon. Then get yourself a 10" inch round grapevine wreath for $4.99. 
It's so simple to put together too! I took the garland and placed in on top of the wreath and took a sprig here and there pulling it under a twig until in place....I did this all the way around. If you wish you can also glue gun pieces into place all the way around or tie in lace with green floral wire. I just tucked my pieces into place and it is holding on very well. I spent $10 on the garland and already had the wreath at home. It was a great way to cheer up our home for a fraction of the cost for ready made wreaths with I found are between $30-$50.
Isn't it pretty?

The Finished Cinderella Sets
















I wanted to also share with you the sets I did for another play...(Cinderella)
The last few months I worked on cobblestone castle walls on five boards ranging from 8-12 feet tall. They took forever with a bit of help from mothers in the group as well as my daughter. The back of the castle walls were painted houses for the village scene. That part was fun and didn't take as long. I think they turned out pretty cute and looked colorful on stage. 
They all were a lot of work with many hours and labor put into them.
