Happy New Year, y'all! (I'm a little late, huh?)

Lots of exciting things are happening here at the start of the new year! We welcomed the new year by having a little party at our place. I'm obsessed with making decorations, so I'll jump at the excuse to make some. We weren't even sure we were going to have a party when I started making decorations.

I thought a fun Christmas gift for Tana would be to give her a new year's decoration kit, so I doubled everything I made and gave it to her.

There's a part of me that I think should have been an elementary school teacher. I love cutting stuff out. And hot glue.

and glitter filled balloons sound like a great idea until one POPS and you have glitter everywhere.

(....but can we secretly admit that I don't mind the fact that it's hard to clean up and glitter makes me super happy?)

Cheers to 2015!

Christmas Gift Painting

My brother and sister-in-law saw the painting I made that's hanging in our living room and hinted that they would maybe request one in the future. I decided to surprise them with one as a christmas gift. It went through a lot of phases in the afternoon I painted it, but I like the end result.
