2012 Resolutions

Does anyone ever keep resolutions?  This year I am not going to use the same old resolutions, eat healthier, exercise more, and be more positive.  Nope.  This year I am going to try some fun resolutions that I may actually keep. 

1.  Finish some projects around the house that make me feel happy.

This ribbon organization box is on my list.  I love being organized and using this to wrap up some pretty gifts would definitely make me smile:

 

 2.  Make more handmade gifts.  I think I have the ability, now I just need to believe in myself!

I think these candles would be so cute as gifts!

 3.  Cook more.  Yes, read it again.  I’m sure Jeremy needs to read it 3 times.  But, I’m serious!

This steak and mushroom dinner and the rum balls look like two amazing recipes to try!

 

4.  Host more gatherings at our new home! I mean go all out.  Invitations, decorations, food…

I want to feel like Martha! 

 5.  Make progress with the furniture business.  I’m in no rush to jump into opening a full on shop yet.  But, I would like to try some of my projects in a shop.

A bench like this made out of two old chair would be super neat!

 

 What are you resolutions?? 🙂

Engagement Party Decor

May 26, 2009 at 3:34 pm (Inspiration, Wedding Plans) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

We are finally ready to throw the long awaited engagement party!!  We have been patiently (or not so much) waiting for good weather and a finished yard in order to throw an outdoor fest.  We now seem to have both (or as good as its going to get).  So, bring on the party! 

I have a few simple ideas swirling around in my head, but for some fun inspiration I put together a few photos I’ve spotted. 

This idea is so simple and cute.  Although the picture is more fall decor it could easily be summer-y with some sand or shells in the jars!

This scene is so pretty.  We already picked up some red paper lanterns that are perfect to go under our trees around the fire because they are battery operated.

These vintage letters would look neat in our yard showing our initials or wedding date. 

I love the colors of this space.  We hope to use some random candle-light as this photo does.

Are you all in the mood for some outdoor time yet?  We will keep you updated with our party pictures- the party is on the 20th of June…
