Perfect Pairs Wedding Gift

Perfect Pairs Wedding Gift

wedding gift

 This last weekend I was able to attend a bridal shower for my nephew's bride-to-be. I put together a gift of Perfect Pairs (for a Perfect Pair!) It was a lot of fun, and easy to do. 
First, I went to the store and bought a lot "perfect pairs", or things that go together. Things like pie and ice cream or peanut butter and jelly, for an example. Then I used cute, scalloped-edge cards that I already had, printed tags off for each duo and put them all together in a basket. She loved it!

My Heart is Yours... {Frame it! Friday}

Jane Austen love quote

Love is in the air around here! We have two weddings coming up in our family. My nephew is getting married in May and my niece set the date for July. Preparations are under way and we are all getting excited. In fact, I attended the first bridal shower this last weekend. One of the party games showed still images from "Love" movies and we had to guess the title. Of course there was a picture from Pride and Prejudice, (the Colin Firth version, which is far superior in my opinion, but that's another conversation...) and we got to discussing how Jane Austen had the best books and quotes about love. So this week's {Frame it! Friday} is in honor of those getting married this year, and written by our favorite "expert" on love. Have a great weekend and remember that these printables are always free, simply print, frame and enjoy!

Happy Monday! This last weekend was crazy at our house. My husband's 40th birthday fell on the same day as Easter, so we had an extra big celebration. Right in the middle of it all, our 10 year old daughter was twirling in her new dress, tripped, and fell backwards, breaking her arm.  I spent the afternoon in the Insta-Care getting x-rays. (She is going to be fine, although she will be sporting a cast for several weeks.) Who knew twirling in your dress could be so hazardous? 😉We are so grateful for the medical professionals who give up holidays with their families so they can help those that are sick and hurt. 

Looking through your projects every week is such a source of joy for me. I love all the creativity floating around out there. Thanks for sharing with me! I really appreciate your help in making this party a success, too, so please keep coming back and invite your friends; share via social media.

Most Favorite Person Ever... {Frame it! Friday}

Most favorite printable

My husband celebrates his 40th birthday in 2 days. (Yes, that's on Easter this year!) Today is also a special day for us; 18 years ago on April 14 we got engaged. He always said I'm the "gift he gave himself." He is my best friend, a great father, and the person I hope to have wheel chair races in the nursing home with... basically he's my most favorite person ever. Which is why this week's {Frame it! Friday} is dedicated to him. Happy Birthday/Easter, sweetheart! 

As always, these printables are free, simply print frame and enjoy! Have a great weekend.
