Tonka Truck Party

My wonderful friend, Amanda Bohack, ask me and five other girls to host a baby shower.  I was thrilled at the opportunity to do it!  Our theme we came up with was Tonka Truck. 

I found these cute invitations on from, Mommies Ink.  Jen was very sweet to answer all my questions and sent the invitations to me with in a day or two via email.  Thank you Mommies Ink!

We had such a fun time making the desert table.

The women made so much yummy food.  There was nothing left.

I love making my icecream pops.

These are giant cake balls.  I thought that putting them in the dump truck was a perfect place to put them.

Vintage Wood Cheese Pedestal Knock Off

I fell in love with a Pottery Barn Vintage Wood Cheese Board Pedestal and I wanted one, but I didn't like the price tag at $ first plan was to find something similar at the Good Will store or Salvation Army.  I had no luck.  As I was grazing through Hobby Lobby I took a detour down the wood isle and there it was!  Ding, the light bulb went on, I can make it myself. 

This is the Pottery Barn version:  This is a versatile piece.
Vintage Wood Pedestal, Small

This is my version:

Items you will need:
Elmer's Wood Glue
Wood block
Wood candle stick holder 4

Decide were you wood like put the candle sticks

Glue the candle holders

Wipe off excess glue.  Let dry

Sand down the wood with sandpaper and stain to the color you like.  I wanted a darker look but I used what I had.

Here is staind and unstaind version:

 I thought they turned out super cute and only costed me $4!

Its Hump Day!

Mod Podge

I had this wall piece hanging for a year now and always felt it was missing something.

Not very cute.

I printed these pictures from or trip to the beach this summer.  I looked on Craigslist for a photograper in Destin to find someone to take our pictures!  She only charged us $75 to take photos of us on the beach.  We had so much fun. 

 I Mod Podged the pictures on the the wall art.

 I let the glue dry and then hung back up.  Wa La, instantly better!
