Just Made Another Just Married
By • Filed In: Projects, Weddings

I LOVE making banners.  Mostly because they look so cute in pictures, like here. Photos by Primavera Studios My principal at work is getting married in May and loved the banners I made for my wedding.  So I offered to make her some of her own.  Her wedding colors are navy blue, raspberry pink and

By • Filed In: Winter

We’ve had a very mild winter this season (picture me knocking on wood as I type that), but this past Friday we got a little snow. There were even a few areas around us that had a snow day. I wish I had gotten a picture first thing in the morning, because it was actually

Month In Photos
By • Filed In: Photography, Projects

We seem to be on the theme of memories this week.  So when I was thinking of what to write today, I thought of Rebecca Coopers Month in Photos. It’s no secret I love taking pictures.  The problem is taking the time to print off the pictures I take.  For the last couple of years

Yesterday I shared what we did for my Dad’s birthday. We got all secretive and had something in the works for a little over a month. You can get all the details and see what it looked like here. Of course Kal and I documented the whole ‘opening of the present’ thing….both with photos and

I hope everyone had a a nice long weekend! I spent mine having a little fun, catching up on some things around the house, and partaking in a special celebration. You see, our Dad turned 65 on Sunday and we’ve had a little something up our sleeves for about a month. We’ve been secretly gathering

… or wrist, neck, or finger. I came across Kendra Scott jewelry when I was planning my wedding last year.  I fell in love with all her earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings.  I went with her Carmella Stud earring but used the color bar to personalize it with my chosen gems.  You can check out how myself and other brides used

I Want A Hippopotamus…
By • Filed In: Party

…. for a shower, only a hippopotamus will do. No, not the getting clean in the tub type of shower. A baby shower! One of my best (and my longest) friends is preggers and will pop at the end of March. This past weekend was her baby shower and so I thought I’d share some

  I don’t take a lot of time to do my makeup each morning before work.  To give myself 10 more minutes of snooze in the am prior to my 45 minute commute, I limit my eyes to just eyeliner and mascara.  Mascara makes the biggest difference.  I’ve tried dozens of brands and about two

Priceless Pampering
By • Filed In: Valentines Day

I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentines Day. Well, that’s not entirely true. I was a fan when I was little and we got to celebrate with a fun class party, candy, and games. As I got older however, it just seemed tedious. It became a day filled with overpriced flowers and dinners, and

…the recipe edition. Since it is food week here on JKR, it only makes sense. Right? So here is what has caught our eye around the web recently. A rich and delicious cup of homemade hot chocolate sounds amazing right about now. And these cute heart marshmallows would make it even better! Mignon Kitchen Company,
