  • Camden Turns The Wild One!

    After months of planning for Camden’s first birthday party the big day finally arrived! We were so excited to celebrate with our friends, family and the newest one year old on the block! The big day came quicker than I had ever imagined and I’m not going to lie, there were moments I couldn’t control the emotions. My baby is growing up so fast and I can barley keep up! It feels like just yesterday we were bringing our little bundle home to start a new life together. *teeears* Oh what an intense and amazing year it has been! A big sappy blog post on motherhood and our first year as bffs coming next week!

    Camden’s party was Pow-Wow/Tribal themed which meant tons of fun DIY projects for this crazy-crafting mama. I had saved several decorations from the baby shower which happened to be somewhat of the same color scheme so I was able to upcycle and reuse some. YAAAAS!

    In between naps after setting up and throughout all of the excitement I was able to capture a few detail shots and candid moments from the party.

  • DIY | Pretty Tassel Garland Made of Pastel Tissue Paper

    Here is a super cute, easy and inexpensive way to decorate any space making it instantly adorable and festive!

    Materials:

    -pastel tissue paper
    -scissors
    -hot glue gun
    -twine

    How to:

    1. Take one piece of tissue paper (1 piece will make 4 tassels) Fold it once lengthwise, then once widthwise, and one more time widthwise.

    2. Cut little strips (this is your fringe) leaving 2in. of uncut tissue paper on the top. Then unfold it once and cut down the middle. *make sure the “top” (2in. uncut portion) is on the fold … you will see why.

    3. Take one of the halves and unfold it again, you should have 2 sections. Then take the second halve and unfold it again. One of them will need to be cut in half lengthwise to make 2 more sections. You should end up with 4 separate sections.

    4. Take each section one at a time and roll the center portion. Make sure to not let the fringe get tangled as you roll. It helps to gently run your fingers through the fringe as you roll. Next, twist the middle part.

    5. Take your tassel and fold it in half twisting the sides in opposite directions until it makes a little loop at the top. Put a dot of glue from your hot glue gun on the spot indicated, and twist the two sides around each other.
    Make sure you hold the glued parts together and allow to dry!
