    Hi Ladies,


    It's been a while since I posted on here but since I have a bit of extra time today I decided to share with you some of the DIY projects I have completed to date....



    All of these were wuicka nd fun to make plus since I am NEVER doing this again (the wedding), I want to make sure I enjoy every bit of the process and working on DIY projects brings me that joy...



    I hope you like these....



    Mom's Memory Frame - My Mom dies when I was a baby and I want have a tangible reminder of her on my day .  This memomy frame will be on a empty chair at my ceremony

    Thank You Pararol - This took a lot of patience but it was worth it.  I made for under $5.  Printed the letters from word, made a stencil and painted away.

      Wedding Flip Flops - $30 to make.  I used flip flops from David's Brida ($25) and then a pair of cheap clip on earings.  Took the back off the earrings and hot glued away.  It took all of 5 minutes to do this one

        Card Box - We are not doing a registry because we already live together and dont need anything really.....We will have a card box at the reception instead.


        Here is mine.  Done for under $20. Card box 50% off at Michaels and orange ribbon about $16. The brooch came with the earrings i used on the flip flops and I used it on here.

              Everything you did is really pretty but, I have to say that my favorite is the frame that you made for your Mom.

                I agree with coconoir - my favorite of all the beautiful projects you created is the frame
