CATCH UP

wishing I was some place where I could have taken this picture but sadly no, 1.

1// Guess what?! It’s finally spring break! This couldn’t have come at a better time and I am ready to get away from everything- even if it’s on college visits.

2// I stuck to my word and actually joined track. I am terrible at it but really enjoy it. The people I am with are really nice so it makes it a lot better.

3// Prom preparation is in full swing and I am about to go get my dress altered. Everyone is asking in such cute ways and I am so excited to see how the night turns out.

Is it bad I can’t think of anything else? I have been so busy recently which is exactly what I needed because I was going insane not having anything to do. I can not wait for next week and hoping it determines a lot considering I have no idea where I want to go to college. It will also bring back some of the mother-daughter trips that haven’t happened since I quit gymnastics so it will be a very fun week:).

WATERCOLOR LETTERING

lately I have been super into watercolor lettering. i have admired people that are good at this (like A Fabulous Fete– i literally dream of being that good) and have tried doing it myself. it never turns out how i invision in my head so i usually get frustrated… i know, not the right way to go about it. i had a super laid back weekend of basically doing nothing so i decided to try water coloring again and i finally feel like i am getting the hang of it! of course there’s a ton i would fix but i am really happy with how they turned out.
 
im thinking about doing a download of something spring related but have to perfect it first;).

04. I have been looking for internships for the summer recently and in the process I have had to write emails. I have never really had to write formal emails for anything yet so its been  great learning process for me.  my email skills definitely need a little sharpening up and this post taught me a ton!

DIY CAKE NUMBERS

 

 

01. cover your wood numbers [or letters] in mod podge and cover with glitter. shake off excess glitter and let dry.

02. spray numbers with clear spray paint to make sure all the glitter stays in place and doesn’t get on your cake.

03.  hot glue wood sticks onto the back of the numbers making sure to position it so you can you cant see any of the sticks from the front.

Tip: i thought i was genius and bought glitter spray paint and i am here to say it does not work- at all. stick with actual glitter.
