I'm sprung...

Hello everyone~ Lately the weather has been playing tricks on me...just when I think the sun is finally here to stay, dark clouds roll in...and just when I think I need to bundle up, I need to peel off my super thick scarf...what's going on? Personally, I would rather be hot than cold any day...yes I know when you're cold all you need to do is add layers to be warm...but there's something about sunshine and the warmth throughout the day that just makes me...happy. I would like Mr. Sun to be out all day everyday but...I can't do anything about that. ^ ^ Anyways, I was strolling around the mall today and was so happy to see more and more winter clothes taking the backseat and finally see floral skirts, breezy tops and so much spring/summer goodness! Basically...I'm sprung from spring. ^ ^ Is it just me or do soft, pretty pastel colors come to mind when you think of spring?

Anyone else excited for spring/summer to come? =)

Happy Valentines Day everyone!!~ I hope everyone has a special day today with loved ones, whether it may be your significant other, family or friends.

I wanted to share with you about our Agape Night that we held at church last weekend. Basically we try to teach our children's ministry about the power of God's love for us. We invited their families to come and sit at their own table to eat and do crafts together. Here are some pictures and quick DIY tips. =)

Centerpieces. We got some potted plants and candles are a easy way to fill up space and create a cozy feel to the room. We also scattered valentines candy around the centerpieces.

The programs for the night! =)

Easy easy DIY backdrop for a photobooth. =) You can easily recreate these with different colors and materials

Doesn't that look delicious and refreshing? The mothers made this with V8 Splash, cranberry juice and cut up strawberries, oranges and blueberries....yummm

Craft time! A posterboard was given to each family along with these materials. They took four family photos ahead of time and we handed it out to them. They were asked to decorate the posterboard with their pictures and other goodies. 
I truly felt the love that night. From the mothers rolling up their sleeves to help with dinner to the teary eyes at the end of the night when they say their love letters to their it was awesome. I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!!

Get Organized

For all the brides who are notorious for being disorganized and stash bits and pieces everywhere and need friends to remind you of appointments, look no further! How about letting pretty notebooks and organizers inspire you to use them instead of plain and uninspiring notebooks that are buried in your drawers somewhere?

Oh Joy's shop is full of pretty prints with handmade influences from texture, pattern and color.

I love her collection of whimsical calenders. Why not spice it up and use lovely notebooks, organizers, calenders and other goodies to inspire you to get organized and make lists for the details of your wedding?

Not the type to mess with pens and paper? If you are a minimalist, how about using teuxdeux to make your to-do lists? Teux Deux (don't you love the name?) is a simple to-do app for those who are on the go.

Take time out throughout your day to take care of the little details of your wedding. If you are feeling overwhelmed, make lists to help you get through them. My advice is to go somewhere by yourself (remember my previous post on too many voices!) whether it be

a cafe (you guys know my love for Starbucks ^ ^)

a desk (work or at home)

or even your bed!

Stay tuned for Valentine's Day DIYs and lovely photos. =)
