My Daughter's Wedding

OK, so less than two years from now, my oldest daughter is getting married.  Yes, Yes, I is two years from now, plenty of time.  But, I don't have all the money for the type of wedding I want her to have.  Of course, she would be happy to go to the court house and then just a regular party.  But, I know from experience, that years down the road she would regret it if she didn't do it up right.  Right?  OH well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'm crafty and can do a lot of this wedding myself but would need to start working it all now.  We have decided on a date - May 21, 2016 and a theme for the reception - New Orleans/Mardi Gras/Masquerade.  I have started making the bridal party's masks.  Here is my youngest daughter's mask:

Here is my board on Pinterest to see some other ideas:

I have so much going on lately.  I am also expecting a Grandson from my Husband's oldest Son.  They lost the first one in the last trimester.  His name was Wyatt.  This one will be Cooper and we couldn't be happier to welcome him into the family.  He is due in October (not soon enough).  I've already been making him some things for his room:

Under the haystack, you can put a picture of him asleep.  I just loved this idea.  I found it on Pinterest and I had to copy it for Cooper.  I found the shadowbox at Goodwill for $3 and gutted it.  Then I painted it all the light blue and went from there. I hope Ashley (Cooper's Mommy) likes it and will use it.

Guess that is about it for now.  I'll share more as I create more.

Blessings to you and yours
