It is week 9 of 2014! I still love this project, it is weeks like this that remind me of the real importance of this system and my method.
Nothing important was going on but we were incredibly busy, so that didn’t lend itself to a lot of pictures for the week. Almost all of these pictures are little life moments, not posed not planned and a perfect example of every day life.
Gunnar’s sister and brother-in-law got a puppy last weekend. It was fun to play with and I think Gunnar fell in love! I hope we can get one soon!! And we went to a local wine tasting. So much Fun! Happy Friday!
Sometimes I just need reminded to slow down take one thing at a time to not become overwhelmed by negative feelings and thoughts.
I love all of my collections but this one has to be one I have had the longest. I used to pick them up when I was little, unfortunately for a long time the whole collection sat in my closet while I was in high school and college and it didn’t grow. My family jokes that I don’t eat the candy out of them and I think they are correct. I love the themes the colors and the characters!
One of the ones not pictured here is a Wonder Woman dispenser but at some point one of her feet got broken and now she wont stand on her own. I still love her anyway!
When we were brainstorming ideas for our rehearsal dinner we came across these cute packets that were given to guests. Some fun pieces, some information, and some favor to the guests. We decided to adapt this for our dinner.
Our packet had three pieces placed in a kraft paper bag which I hand lettered the phrase “Tomorrow is going to be the best day ever.” We had included a card for people to write fun advice to us and we got some good advice we will look back on for years to come.
We also wanted to include a piece which thanked our friends and family for their support, help and love throughout our engagement. We had a schedule for the following day so everyone including family of the bridal party would have an idea when things were going on. I am so glad we put in the work to make these for our guests. Each bag also had a Hershey’s Kiss but as you can imagine none of those left the building that night!
Yesterday we woke up to more snow. I don’t know how much longer this winter will last so I have decided to make the best of it. This week of making me smile is all about cozy things.
This super cozy fireplace! I don’t think I would get cold reading a book near that.
These warm and cozy knitted socks from Grieta Knits on Etsy. And this warm cup of tea! I’m inspired to go read now catch you all later!
