It’s go time…wedding planning has commenced and bridesmaids have been chosen.  Why ask like a normal person, when you can mail them a balloon filled with glitter and a note?  I never would, and that’s why I thank Pinterest for it’s many wonders.

To get started you’ll need: a box, string, balloons, glitter (duh), Safety pins (not pictured), a funnel (I clearly made mine from paper and tape), and your message.  I got my supplies from Moskatels but if you don’t live in SoCal you can go to Michaels, also known as, the best place on earth.

Here’s my message.  I took it all the way back to junior high for this one.

Roll up the message and slide into the deflated balloon.  Pretty simple.

Then use your funnel to add the glitter.  I used large and small glitter.  You can NEVER have too much glitter, don’t let anyone tell you anything different.

Then blow up the balloon, make sure it still fits the box (releasing air from a glitter filled balloon is NO fun).  Tie the string and add the “pop me” note and safety pin.

Now your done and you can make all the ladies, or gents, in your life feel super special.  I love all of my ladies!!!  More arts and crafts to come.  We have another art day scheduled for this Sunday!!!

Well, I haven’t posted in a while mainly because I was recovering from the wedding of a lifetime.  My dearest friend Kim married the truly debonaire Blain…even his name is swanky.  I don’t need to give you guys a play by play but would love to show you some of my favorite captures from the day.  Yes, some of them are out of focus thanx to my quick iPhone focus.

The wedding party was huge which made for very fun pre and post wedding events.  I know not everyone has this many friends but it really made the weekend a party.  Also, on a side note, this flower girl (cousin of the Bride) was adorable all day.  She was quite a ham!

Finally, we partied until we could party no more.  The top is the flower girl with a groom’s man, then the Bride and her brother (Stevie), some delish cupcakes, a dance with the Bride her long time friend (Tristen) and the flower girl again…I told you she was a ham.  Then here is the exhausted Groom.  How much do you love those socks, all the groom’s men had some variation.

Still Exhausted Cupcakes
