A Confirmation and DIY Party Sign!!!

Hello Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!

We were busy getting ready for my daughters Confirmation! She has been busy for weeks doing volunteer hours, letters to the Bishop, and researching her chosen Saint. Lots and lots of work on her part, more than I ever had to do when I was confirmed.

Anyways, it was a great day, spent with Family. We had a BBQ, and lots of good eats.

I made some cheap and easy decorations for the occasion. Anything to keep the cost down.

I just used card- stock paper, ribbon and leftover letter stickers here! I always tend to hang stuff off of my that strange? Does anyone else do this??

Here is my "PARTY" Banner over the island. I love how it turned out. I wish I had gotten photos of the food displayed, but I was too busy and then it just looked picked over. I used all white bowls, plates , platters and cake stands for height. It looked great!!!

This is my supplies for the Banner. I used this glitter tape, hard to work with until you get the hang of it, but it looks awesome. (It's the black border on the top of the banner) This took me no longer than 30 minutes, and I can use it over again.

Zoe and the Bishop!

Saint Cecilia!

She chose her for her love of music.

What a great day!

In Neutral

Hello everyone! I've been vacant lately. I've been busy getting my rentals ready for the new group of kids coming. I've been cleaning, picking out paint colors, fixing nail holes in walls etc... But it has to get done! I love trying to make these homes nice and clean for each new group every year. I want them to enjoy the space and have a happy experience while away from home. What an exciting time in their life!!!

So, I was wondering....does anyone have a favourite neutral??? I have so many picked out but they can be so tricky. Too yellow, too pink, or just green in different light. I'm so confused. You think this would be easy!!!

Until I figure this out, I'll be in neutral too....So help me out if you would be so kind!

I miss you guys!!!
