DIY Party/Picture/Room Decoration Banner

At first I was going to order a banner off of Etsy, but then I thought about it the banners that I had see where about 30-40 well the ones that I liked anyways. They were great and I admire the people that make them so much creativity in one person is very dangerous (that’s what I like to say about myself) So I looked Mr.Know it all (Google) for “DIY party banners” as sure enough all this posts and pictures of very cute banners came up! I went crazy. Yall just don’t understand I will spend all day on google or my favorite place in the world Piterest looking up anything and everything under the sun. I just love making things. I don’t make them often but when I do I take great pride in it!

Oh and by the way his theme will be (drum roll)

“Little Man” which is basically mustaches and ties and his color scheme is mint blue and red

                            I was originally going to make the banners my self but then I went to target and found this…

Banners

 

They were $1.99 each I thought that was pretty good so I got 2 red and 2 blues I ended up going back and returning 1 of the blue ones because when I get in my zone I change my mind more than once.

Then I went to Hobby Lobby that’s like the best place in the world besides Michaels of course!

I got some blue (mint) and red scrapbook paper, K,J,N (that one was for Noah) wood letters, red and mint blue paint, stencils, xacto knife I found a pink one, canvas and mustache stickers.

 

yay

 

So I took the stencils and traced the following on the mint blue paper “Happy Birthday Kason” I cut those out and glued them on the banners. I tried using the knife yeah im not very good that that so I stuck with the scissors. I already had printed out the mustache and bowtie and I basically traced them as well and glued them to the banners.

And this is the finished look

tada

Then what I did with the canvas was this

I filled in the mustache with black paint

The letters were the easiest of course lol I just painted them

Letters

I will be putting the letters over Kasons bed and the banner and canvas will be put away.

I am still not done with the party decorations I will be posting as I go .Hopefully I can find the charger to my camera so I can take better pictures.

Hello there!!

So ive been gone for a couple of months and so much has happened. I am currently waiting for my computer to sync with my phone because there is so many pictures to share!(its done!) I am briefly going to summarize what has been going on.

Okay so Mr. Kason will be 1 this 29th. I can hardly believe that my little baby will be the BIG 1. He took his birthday pictures last month. You may be asking why? well the girl who takes all my pictures was already booked for the whole month of June. So I just went ahead an took them a month earlier! I will be posting some of his pictures once I get them.

Noah will be 6 in August. He gets out of school this Friday! He will also have like a little mini graduation this Thursday. He will be going to 1st grade! He is doing awesome. Him and Kason will be taking pictures together some time in August.

As you can tell I have 2 birthday, well actually 3 because Tee turns 22 on the 9th of this month! Not only that Fathers Day is coming up! So that means I can get CREATIVE. For Kasons pictures I made some of the props! We didn’t use 2 of them but I will be displaying them at his party! With that being said be prepared for som DIY posts! I enjoy watching DIY videos and reading about them as well so its only appropriate that I do some myself!

As far as me and Tee go we are good we hit some bumps not too long ago. But what couple doesn’t. Our relationship has always been a unique one (well I like to think so) I feel that we go trough the bad all at once to get to the good (eventually) We are a working process.

As far as my school goes I am still in school. I just finished 3 classes about a month ago. Can we say stressful! Um yes you can! I will be enrolling AGAIN this July. If all goes good I should graduate this October!! And that is my goal for this year I want to finish school and do what I love!

I have also started working out! I love it!!!!!! It takes so much stress off of me. I can just sweat it off basically. Im not going to the gym to loose weight I am just working on toning my body. My tummy area to be exact.

Anyways I will be posting some pictures of the props I made for Kasons pictures after I publish this post.

Bye.. well see you in a bit

To yellow or not to yellow???

I like to plan ahead of time well now I do. I don’t like being rushed! When I do rush I feel like I could’ve gotten a better outcome when I am done doing whatever I was doing. That is why I already looking up birthday themes and cookie cutters and all that fund stuff. Anyways that is not the reason for this post. The ULTIMATE reason for this post is to yellow or not to yellow?

Now you’re probably asking yourself “what is she talking about?” “what does she want to yellow or not yellow?” I know I would be asking my self the same thing. Wait for it………..

We are taking family pictures on April 4, 2014 at 9 am!
My biggest dilemma with this photoshoot is the color scheme. Wait there is more we are not just the only ones taking pictures Tee’s dad and wife along with their kids are taking pictures with us. So in total we will be 9 in the picture. I have already talked to Shani (tees stepmom she’s awesome by the way) about what colors we should wear. We both were thinking the same YELLOW and white (cant do a white colors because then you wont be able to see it lol) I have dressed Kason in yellow before and let me tell you he looks handsome! Not just saying that because he is my son he honestly looks handsome in colors that I really don’t wear. His skin color compliments the color. Tee has also worn yellow before and he looks great. Me and Noah however have never worn yellow. Why? you ask well I simply don’t like yellow,brown,green,orange, or any light colors like the ones I just listed. But I have challenged my self to try new things this year. So I am on the hunt for a yellow and white dress or an all white cute dress! I cannot and repeat cannot get an all yellow dress I don’t know what shoes to wear with and all yellow dress. So my planning begins I am already looking online because spring is upon us an I know there will be plenty of white and yellow all around the mall and smalls stores around me!! I already have the kids and Tees outfit down white jeans or shorts and yellow shirts. Im telling you finding outfits for them is the easy part finding one for me is like looking for a needle in a hay stack.
 

Christmas 2013

I’m a bit late but better late than never.

We didn’t do anything Christmas Eve I think we just slept lol. Noah went over his dad’s house so I picked him up early Christmas morning (he was at my moms) he fussed a little since I woke him up, but hey it was for a good cause.

When I got home I took one last picture of my tree (I still haven’t taken it down. Was I suppose to do afte New Years? is there like a rule? So many questions and nobody answers) then we sat and got ready to open up our goodies. Terrence and I decided on not getting each other anything. But other people (my mom, his stepmom and dad sent us some gifts) 

Noah was so excited and happy with what he got. Kason was thankful for all the rapping paper and how he received. He was not interested in the toys he got. This was our first Christmas together as a family.  After opening gifts we cleaned up got ready and went to his aunts house then to my moms. I hope you all had a wonderful day that day!

Here are se pictures out Christmas was pretty simple nothing major but it was very special to us
