DIY Magnetic Board

This weekend we were having a hard time trying to figure out a Christmas gift for my husband’s step-mom. So I decided to make her a magnetic board. I have done this before, but took pictures to show you the steps.

Things you need:
Photo Frame (you can use any size)
Sheet of metal (I found this with the duct work at Home Depot)
Tin Snips
Fabric (Big enough to cover the metal and then some)
Spray Adhesive
Hot Glue

Peacock Feather + Rustic Wedding

I have talked a little bit about my wedding. I wanted to give you a look to what it turned out to be. I submitted my wedding on StyleMePretty. I was looking for a place for the bride to submit on, but I can’t find it (please comment if you have a link!). So photography credit goes to the wonderful Janne Photography. Here is what I submitted as a description for my wedding.

Jordan and I got married September 6th, 2015. This was also our 10 year anniversary of being together. November 1, 2013, Jordan I went to this little spot in Cincinnati, Ohio that overlooked the city. Just a casual night, waiting for time to pass before meeting up with friends. Before I knew it, Jordan was on one knee, PROPOSING! I had no idea this was coming, but was thrilled it happened! That winter, my mother and mother in law started wedding planning. We visited our outdoor venue when it had snow on the ground and booked it. Taste tested caterers and cakes and attended a bridal expo.

Noel String Art

Hello! It’s been a longggg time since I have blogged, but I am trying to change that. Being the holiday season I have lots of recipes and crafts to share! Those of you who don’t know me, I am a person that decides on a dime I want to craft something, and I do it. That’s what happened to me yesterday, so i didn’t take any pictures of during my project. I decided I was going to make some string art for a family gift exchange, while shopping at Michael’s, I realized I had already bought a gift (a long time ago, and I had forgot about it!). Well being a Saturday with nothing to do, I decided to go ahead and attempt string art and see how it goes.

Hello world!

Hello world is the default title for your first post on… but it resonates well with me. Being part of a developer world, you always learn to start with “Hello world!”. And for me today, I am saying Hello to the world of blogging.

I have never had a blog before, and am excited to start this journey. I wish I had started this sooner, because I have sooo much to talk about that I don’t know where to begin! Let’s start with a little about me. I am a Designer. I have skills that spreads across a broad range of design types. but LO LO LOVE interaction design, user interface design, user experience design, etc; let’s call it Digital Design. I just recently graduated college, and have started a new job as a Digital Designer at a WONDERFUL company and am so in love right now, my wedding is in 5.5 weeks. FIVE WEEKS! My life is a little crazy right now, so why not start a blog!?

Some Goals of this blog:

  • Grow my writing skills. Being able to write more often, about something I enjoy, will definitely increase my creative writing skills, as well as my vocabulary (it needs help)
  • Get my thoughts, inspiration, process, and final projects in writing.
  • Get my work noticed. Whether its my design work, my crafting, DIY, or the combination of everything I do. I want to be noticed, I mean who doesn’t!?

It has been a long day, but I feel accomplished for starting something I have been thinking about for months. I would love to get tips from any Veteran Bloggers about how I can become a Veteran Blogger.
