Rainy weekend DIY!

This weekend it rained and rained and rained some more.... 

E ended up taking an impromptu road trip to Michigan with my big bro who is moving back to Massachusetts from Michigan.

I opted to stay behind soooo I had a lot of time to spend in the house all by my lonesome. 

On Saturday I went to my niece's dance recital....no pics sadly.

On Sunday, I went to some craft stores and then got my wedding DIY on.

First I made an activity book for the 10-ish kiddos who are coming to my wedding. I got the basic ideas here, and then kind of edited and copy and pasted to make it my own! I think it came out SO cute and I think the little girls {and hopefully boys} are going to LOVE it! Eating dinner gets a little boring before all the fun dancing starts, so hopefully this will keep them all happy and entertained! These pics are of the books I created.


I finished up my card box too, and I think that came out pretty good as well! 

First I spray painted the cardboard boxes silver. Next I went at them with an exacto knife and cut some not so round circles.... oops

 but when you put the covers on and decorate you don't even notice those parts.


See? Doesn't the final product look pretty???


So the rainy weekend was pretty fun and not so lonely afterall! :)
