Warning: this is a double post; from decor to turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
We just moved into a house, yay! We have plenty of space now & I’ve been trying to decide on decor. I really wanted to do a gallery wall, but wasn’t sure where to start! I knew I didn’t have enough frames so it was great when I found an 8-piece set
at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It was a great starting point, but it wasn’t what I was going for. I wanted more. I wanted personalized. So I shopped around some craft stores for some things & I rummaged through the house finding some more frames & signs that I could incorporate.

There is only one benefit of being home sick… free time to craft!
I recently took the pages out of my old Lilly planner but couldn’t decide what I should do with them, until one day it hit me–greeting cards! Lilly has such wonderfully uplifting designs, so what better use than to make someone’s day just a little brighter?

I am WAY behind on blogging! I’ve been busy with my newly opened Etsy shop — CrazyCraftaholic
🙂 But anyway, this is about a recent bachelorette weekend for one of the many beautiful brides in my life!
We went to Charlotte, NC the weekend of St. Patrick’s day…which is also the weekend of the World’s Largest Bar Crawl
. Needless to say, it was PACKED with people & with green. I would say this only added to our excitement though! It also gave us an opportunity to buy a $25 shirt that would get us into basically ANY bar/club we would want to go to!
We had a pretty packed weekend, but it was so great to be able to celebrate the bride to be!

I swear, I must have been born a procrastinator. It’s in my blood…it has to be! I have this problem where I will push everything to the veryyyy last minute. I will give must self just enough time in which I know I will be able to complete my task. I should really work on it, but so far, no luck.
So as of today, Monday, February 9, I do not know what I’ll be doing for my hubby Saturday, February 14… I figured there has to be at least a handful of women who get in the same boat as me. So (instead of planning for this year) I figured I would let you know about some simple & quick ideas I’ve used in the past!

October 16 is Mike & my “dating anniversary”. This year made 3 years! Not sure if it’s “normal” to celebrate your dating anniversary after marriage, but I’m okay for any excuse to celebrate! This year I decided to do an anniversary scavenger hunt for Mike. This is really something I would love more than something he would love, but it’s the thought that counts, right 🙂
Here are all the clues:

My little has been having a tough time. I was having lunch with her today & decided I wanted to do something to try & cheer her up–so I made a Box Full of Sunshine!
Disclaimer: This is seriously the easiest, cutest, cheapest gift ever!
Step 1: Go to Dollar Tree
Step 2: Look for yellow
Step 3: Deliver
Seriously, that simple.

It has been a crazy past two weeks! I had two weddings, 6 days apart!
My brother-in-law got married September 27th in Charlotte, NC & one of my best friends got married October 3rd in High Point, NC. LOTS of traveling in not a lot of time!
Here are some of the signs I made for their wedding!!

Today was SO productive. We were listening to an inspirational speaker & a few things just hit home for me:
Everyone has two pains: determination and regret.
Control the day or it will control you.
Pick something & do it!
So that’s just what I did! I’ve been dreaming of “organizing” my craft room for a while, so I finally convinced my hubby for us to go get the necessities & for him to hang me some shelves!

Sooo I have 4 weddings in my near future–two of which I’m MOH (October 2014 & June 2015), one I’m a bridesmaid (April 2015), & one I am solely a guest (September 2014-however she will be my sister in law so I’m still obligated to help). Needless to say there are a LOT of bridal shenanigans to plan & partake in, around all of the baby showers also in my life, of course. Guess I’m just at that point in my life — weddings & babies everywhere! 🙂
Saturday I got to knock the first event off of the list–Shannon’s Bridal Shower! Now, this was my first bridal shower that I’ve attended AND the first I’ve had the pleasure of planning. Nothing like killing two birds with one stone, right?! Continue reading Bridal Shower Fun!
Well, we did it! I’m finally Mrs. Michael Yerry! How exciting!
Overall, the wedding went excellent! We had a small, intimate ceremony with family & close friends in attendance. A few hiccups, but nothing that couldn’t damper the mood. Even the photographers said they were impressed by the quaintness 🙂 All of the DIY things ended up fitting together very nicely. I’m going to attempt to break it all down!
