Moms Get-R-Dun!

I know that I have made this a craft blog but I kind of just want to talk about being a mother, just for a second. I don't know about you, but honestly I mom made it seem easy. I've always been one who can get a lot of tasks accomplished and I've faced a lot of struggles in my day but sometimes I get so stressed out. But here it is 8:40am and I am writing on here. My son is swinging away, hopefully off to dreamland for at least a half hour. But since I've been up I've managed to apply fake tanner to my legs (I have my friend's bridal shower tomorrow and these legs cannot be glowing white), I'm working on my second cup of coffee, baked pork chops, did some Facebooking, hung out on Pinterest, found a new blog to follow (via Pinterest!) played with my son which ultimately allowed me to started a new jumping workout routine which left me breathless but my 7 month old unleashed infectious belly laughs (so bonus!) and did some arm toning (again, thanks to Pinterest). All before 9am…when I look at it that way, I guess I am like my momma….she probably had times when she felt stressed out too…but she got it done…and I do it all pays off to see this smile. This is Grayson on his very first 4th of July! It's all worth it!

Started working on the props for Angela and Jon's photo booth...I googled some photo booth printables and found this great site and basically cut them out, traced them on to foam and attached sticks
A few of the mouths I liked so I just glued them to the foam to make them sturdy. All the products I used were bought from AC Moore. I bought foam to make some and they had really cool wood masks too that you paint yourself. This I thought would be really fun. I bought 2 owls (me and Angela's thing) and a cat and dog...the cat and dog didn't turn out too well but the owls are pretty cute. The one I tried to paint silimar to here wedding colors (which doesn't show up that well in the picture) and the other is kind of purple...somehow mixing a brown and tan color got me purple, I dunno...but here are the owls...
I will not show you the dog and cat (they are just not pretty...nope) I think I will try to redo them or just get rid of them all together. I'm also going to make chalkboard signs so people can write whatever they want...I'll show more when I have more to show :)
