Persistence pays off...

So if any of you know me, you know that my sister is extremely creative and crafty! When we were younger she was always wanting me to do projects with her and most of the time it never interested me. Nowadays, it's something we both love doing and she is finally starting to rub off on me! Lately I've been really busy with projects and just figured I'd share a few as evidence that persistence pays off! Thanks sis for all your inspiring ideas and help!

My friend Amy is getting married in June and for her Bridal shower I came up with an idea to put together a lil' gift basket that included "ingredients" for "A Recipe for a Lifetime of Love". On the outside was the tag with the following:

A Recipe for a Lifetime of Love
7 heaping cups of "comfort" and love
2 hand fulls of "sweetness"
1 pinch of "spice"
and a dash of "sass"
Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Bake at 1000 degrees until "steamy".
(And just in case things get "messy"...the right tool is included to "smooth" things out!)

So inside the package included items that related to the word in quotes and a recipe to go along with it... ex: in case things get "messy"there are dish towels and a spatula to "smooth" things over including a recipe for a cake and then to keep things "spicy" there was a recipe for salsa and cute salsa dishes to match.. etc. You get it..right?

This was the card I made for her shower.

The apron I made...I also made a coordinating one that's a skirt and ties at the waist.

I am also planning her Bachelorette party and these are the invites I made. I think they are my favorite thing I've done so far and super easy to make! So cute! I have more fun creations that I'm working on for the party but I can't spoil the surprise you know, so there will be more soon to come!
