Monday Etsy Find: Ring Bowls

Ring bowls are becoming very popular replacing the traditional ring bearer pillow. I had my two ringer bearers carry a bowl each. One bowl said "I DO" and the other "ME TOO" with our wedding date 08.08.09.

I hate to say this because I love the idea of the ring bowls, but I think my ring bowls were poorly made because when I received them in the mail one was cracked on the back. I had the seller send me a new one of the one that cracked again. Then right before ceremony the other bowl cracked on the back. I was so upset. The seller might be better now on the quality, but I wouldn't use this seller again.

I love love the concept of the ring bowls. Because you can actually keep and use it. Unlike the ring pillow. Really...what are you going to do with that? A little nap pillow, a foot rest, baby pillow?? No clue. Just one more thing you throw away after the wedding. At least with the bowl you can use it to put your rings on when you are not wearing them or use them as an ornament. For me my dogs got a hold of 2 of the bowls and ate them. Yes you heard me right ATE THEM! I was soooo mad at them. Luckily I had one bowl left (it was cracked on the back), but at least I have one. Now it is in a safe spot from the heathens (I still love them). I think I will get some more made from a different seller to have as personal keepsake.

Here are some other great ring bowls from some Etsy sellers. NOTE: I did not include my seller because I wouldn't send you to such poor quality. However, I believe these are sellers who have good quality bowls.

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.






The card that I got through Shutterfly.com. Love them!


This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.


Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....







Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 


The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.




Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
