Christmas in July


The official first project in the Chateau was a long time in the works and with the assistance of my favorite toothless wonder- kid #1. (She lost 3 of the front 4 in the last 2 weeks. I had cut the cardboard rings and gathered the paint chips months ago, but I finally knew where both were at the same time!!! :) I had seen the idea here using styrofoam rings. We used plain old Elmers glue and variegated the green paint chips. It is hung using ribbon on our apartment door. Great style for July :)

This picture is us unwrapping wedding presents, almost 2 years ago! This was one of our favorite wedding gifts. Using my cricut and modpodge I made a similar (but not nearly as classy) one for some small group friends. We included our token wedding gift of nerf dart guns, too! :) It's hard to stay angry when shoting at one another.
