forever friday: wedding crafting update

So I realized I haven't posted about the wedding in a while- I promise I've been working on it, lots and lots!!! Today I was excited to order some (actually LOTS of) washi tape from happytape! They had the perfect 10 pack for our wedding colors: the sunny 10 pack! I also ordered a few other pairs to have some more yellow, since that's the main color of our wedding.

I'm excited and have many ideas up my sleeve for the tape. One idea that I found that I plan on using is this great luminary tutorial from BeSweetConfections blog.

welcome gnome baby finley

It's been a while since I've posted cookie picks, so here are some from a few weeks ago when our friends welcomed home their newest addition- their daughter Finley.

Our friends, Matt and Kristina, love the outdoors so I thought it would be great to make some woodland themed cookies. The original plan was to make more gnome cookies, but the plans changed and I like the mix I came up with instead.

I think this little owl guy is my favorite, as always I love owls!!! Their older daughter Haley, who just turned two, loved them as well- she too is an owl lover : ) She's such a cutie pie, when we went to visit she kept calling Finley "my baby sister Finley"- adorable!

Congratulations Peterson family- welcome gnome baby Finley!

give green give love

Happy St. Patrick's day! Although I didn't have any St. Patty's day fun to share with you all, I did manage to include some GREEN in today's post.

Perhaps some of you know, my sister Desiree and her husband Aaron are planning to adopt and are having an auction to raise funds for their adoption. So far over 85 items have been donated! The auction begins this Monday, March 21st. Mother's day is right around the corner- there are plenty of items to choose from!

Below are a few pictures of one of the items I donated that will be up for auction. It is an Olive Green diaper/messenger bag. The bag features one large zip pocket facing two medium pockets on the inside. The back of the bag has a large pocket, great for books or magazines. And the sides each have an elastic pocket to hold in baby or water bottles.

Giving a little of your Green means helping to give love and hope to a child in need. Please consider bidding on some of the items up for auction and spreading the word.
Visit Desiree's blog to get a sneak peek of some of the other amazing items up for auction. While there, please consider grabbing a button from her right sidebar to help spread the word- Thank you!
