Happy New Year! I'm hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration. Mine was extra-special and extra-busy with my daughter's wedding taking place right between the two ; ) Which explains why I've been "missing" for the past several weeks. I've been meaning to share the favors (pictured above) I created for the wedding before now, but better a little late than never.
These heart ornament wedding favors are clear glass heart-shaped ornaments with Silver Glass Stampin' Glitter coating the insides. They turned out really pretty...sort of a faux cracked glass or mercury glass look. I found a great tutorial for glittered ornaments here. They really weren't that hard, just a little time-consuming when making about 200 of them! Thankfully, I had some excellent helpers...thank you mom, Janette and Katelynn!!
After a year of planning and preparing, I am very happy to say the wedding was absolutely beautiful!!! I'm so happy for my daughter and new son-in-law and excited for their future together. I wouldn't be a proud mom if I didn't share a few pictures from this special day...
Well, we now have two weddings down and one to go! My oldest son, Ryan, was married a year ago in November, but I didn't get the pictures right away and I don't think I ever shared any of them. So here are a few from their wedding (again, better late than never)...
Our last wedding is coming soon! My son, Michael, will get married this April. Yes, that's three weddings in under a year and half!! I'm exhausted, but in a very good way : ) My husband and I couldn't be more pleased to have two new daughters and a son joining our family. We are extremely blessed!!
With all that's been happening lately my stamping and creating have been put on the backburner a bit, but I wouldn't have missed this time with my kids for anything! I hope to re-group and get back into my stamping room very soon! Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you : )
Remember! Today is the final day to order from the Holiday Catalog. Tomorrow is the first day to order from the new Occasions Catalog.
