First of all, thank you so much for your kind words following my last post. I couldn’t reply to all of them, but you have no idea how much they meant to me. I’m going to print them out for my sister to read, too. I thought I’d share a picture of my sister, her husband and two children that was taken this weekend at the baptism of their baby. You can see on their faces that even through the suffering, there is still joy.
Zach’s 30th birthday was a couple weeks ago so I wanted to share some ideas I used for his party. I’m not a big decorator and I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I wanted to try to do something nice since it was his 30th. So as I was thinking about it I came across some paper garland. I thought, “Perfect. I have paper!” So this garland was the first step for decorating. I got some old books I had and marked circles.
I cut them out with pinking sheers.
Then I cut out fabric circles from scraps, slightly smaller then my paper circles.
Then I placed the fabric circles on top of the paper and just sewed away.
I ended up with A LOT of garland.
I love the simplicity of the vintage paper and the fabric. I also love that it didn’t cost me anything. More to come on the rest of my decorating later this week!
As we were walking on the beach yesterday. I captured this random moment. I’m grateful.
