I’m borrowing a Tilt Shift lens from my cousin. I’ve used it ONCE and I already love it! Here’s one of my roommate from practice today.

Starting back blogging is going to be really hard with a full time job now, but I’m going to try. 

I’ll start with my new hair! I got it professionally dyed for the first time and I love it! I had a little bit of purple in it over the summer that I did myself, but I had to redo it every 3 or 4 days. It was such a hassle. This time I just went all out and got it dyed red too. 

I’m starting scheduling now to turn my basement into a craft studio which should make for some awesome posts, DIY tutorials, and decorating tips. I can’t wait!!

Be back soon!

We used Ashah’s photo booth and just added burlap to the background..

Here’s a little fun from the Photo Booth! 

The post about making Polaroids before was actually about these, but again I couldn’t post them because they were a surprise for Emma’s Shower. 

I made a ton to lay around at the shower of Emma and Kyle! 

A simple center piece of burlap, old books, the Polaroids I made of Emma and Kyle, and a glass bottle with flowers.

3 cupcakes I made:
1-Irish Cream with Coffee Icing
2-Chocolate with Peanut Butter filling and icing
3-Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

I used Polaroids as labels. Simple, cute, easy. 

I made these hot air balloons a while ago and posted about it. They were for this the whole time!

I hung one with 2 metal pieces I found at Goodwill for $.99 and thought they looked like hot air balloons. 

I put babies breath in the base of each and they looked great!

They also sell for $200 on Etsy.. yea freaking right! 

Project 2:1-I bought these two windows from a Habitat for Humanity Restore for $5 each.2-I hot glued burlap to the back.3-I made large fabric flowers in different colors going with the wedding color scheme.4-I had a rope belt that came on some dress a long time ago and couldn’t throw it away. Who would have known it would come in handy for this! I attached the flowers to the rope and glued it on the frame and vwa la!Easy. Cute. Cheap. Use window paint and write on them!

Project 1:1-I ordered these prints from Etsy, and just asked the maker to personalize them and make them a bigger size. They looked PERFECT! 2-Then I bought two very similar frames from Goodwill for less than $2 each and a little bit bigger than the prints.3-I hot glued them to burlap and the burlap to the frames. So easy and so cute!

From the Bridal shower today!! I have so many projects that I can post now. They were all surprises for Emma at the shower! Here’s the first 3 cupcakes:Irish cream cupcake with coffee icingChocolate cupcake with peanut butter filling and frostingCinnamon Toast Crunch cupcake!Emma loves coffee, so her cupcake was the irish cream, and Kyle’s favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch, hence the cupcake. The chocolate peanut butter was just for a chocolate option. Brittany is holding them with her bracelet beauty! Great model, and I couldn’t have worked with a better partner for a Bridal Shower. She is great and blessed me in being such a great partner!

How to make regular pictures into Printed Instagrams or Polaroids:
I wanted to print regular pictures off like my sisters cool little instagrams, but you have to actually use instagrams to use that website. Womp, womp. So I just googled “Polaroid printing” or something like that and found Poladroid! It’s a free download, and the cutest thing ever! When you open it it opens a little Polaroid camera in the top left corner of your desktop. Then you drap you photo to the camera and it makes the sounds like its taking a Polaroid shot! A Polaroid pops up as just brown and you can move it around on your desktop, then you wait for it to develop! It makes a noise when it’s done developing, and you can watch it develop. It’s brilliant. You can do 11 at a time then you have to close it and open it again and can do 11 more. I always do 11 back to back and then do something else while they all sit on my desktop and develop at the same time.So, I took these to Photoshop, put 9 of them to one page, uploaded it to my Office Depot Photo Studio page, went to Office Depot and printed 3 sheets on card stock for like $.69 each! That’s $.69 for 9 mini Polaroids. I brought them home, cut them out and they are freaking adorable!
