I FINALLY have some time for senseless projects instead of school work!!
I decided to start with a little beauty I found here on Pinterest.
I decided to add the chevron background to add to it.
I first graphed my canvas to make sure that my chevron pattern came out even.
I decided to make each box two inches
Next I sketched in my chevron pattern by drawing a diagonal line across each box.
Then I taped off the pattern.
After taping I turned the canvas over and added some weight to reinforce the tape.
This helped to keep the paint from bleeding underneath the edges of the tape.
After an hour or so I painted two coats of back paint
After painting I found the silhouette I wanted, blew it up on my computer, printed, and then pieced him together.
Lastly, I placed it on the canvas, traced the big guy out, glued (spread the glue with a q-tip), and then glittered!!!
I was SOOO pleased with how it turned out!! I was making this just for the intentions of it being a Christmas decoration but I'm becoming very tempted to leave him up ALL year!!!
I hope y'all have a FANTABULOUS Tuesday!!

A few weeks ago I attended a "Wedding Party" for one of my best friends, Taylor.
I had never attended a wedding party before and had no clue what to expect..... How do I dress, do I bring a gift, is it like a shower? I was completely clueless on what party etiquette to grasp for in my vast southern repertoire.
Soooo...... I decided to go for a classy black dress, reminded myself to cross legs at the ankles, and decided I'd make like a chameleon and blend the rest!
I was so SURPRISED when I got there and realized it was her reveal party for her bridesmaids!!!
I am SO completely honored to stand by this precious lady and be a part of her most special day!!
DH girls!!! Minus Jessie
Such fun girls!!!
Can NOT wait for June 22!!!!

Our farm is my absolute most favorite place in the ENTIRE world.....
I could not have asked for a better birthday!!!
Have a FANTABULOUS day on my birthday!!!

Well..... I mean it's true!!
When you think of Gone With the Wind do you think about Melanie or Scarlett?
This is SOO classy!!!
Ok..... SO, please don't judge me but "Thanks" is the predominant answer that my husband gets from me the majority of the time! lol
Paint the bottom of a coffee mug!! Such a cute and funny idea!
I'm not sure if this is true.... but if it is then it is truly one of God's provisions!
