Back home...

...for a while, at least!

Lots to share today!  Let's start with cookies...

Some fun, summer themed gift boxes:



Graduation:



More graduation:


Made into a cookie bouquet:


A super FUN Disney themed wedding.  These designs were being put in everyone's gift bags!


And these were for the dessert table:


Does that make you want to get married in Disneyland or what?!  Congrats to Jamiee and Rick!

Now for some non edible eye candy!

While I was in Denver, I had my "Mom to do-list".  First up was painting Taylor's bedroom furniture:

This is what it looked like when we started:


Such a cute set, but the downside...it's laminate!  Ugghhhh...time for some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!  All dressed up in it's "Pure White":


Pictures cannot do it justice!  There were a lot of everyday "wear" marks on this set, but nothing that a little fresh paint can't fix!  We're hoping that the ASCP can stand the test of kids!

And the last piece I cannot even take much credit for!  I did find the instructions for this Farmhouse Table (Ana White) but Tom (my SIL, for those that don't know) pretty much did the rest!  My small part was staining it and helping to apply the first coat of poly!

This is what it looked like "pre-stained":


And if it looks ginormous, that's because it IS!  This thing is 99 inches long!!  I said it would accommodate the  "Last Supper"!

With the stain:


Unfortunately, I don't have any pics after this...I was headed out of town not long after the first coat of poly!

Here are the chairs that she purchased to go with:


Pretty cool, huh?! 

 Till next time!
