a month in chalk . . .

I can't believe that this year is almost at an end!! December always goes by way too fast and the new year seems to creep up on us whether we want it to or not!! I apologize for the non-postage this month- I have been super busy making chalk art. Here is a little peek at some of the work that I did this holiday season!!

DIY :: chalkboard candles

I have a deep love for candles and am a true believer that adding candle light to any space instantly creates a warm + cozy atmosphere. With Thanksgiving literally right around the corner, I thought a quick little DIY was necessary. As you all know by now, I am obsessed with anything chalkboard related!! As I was taking down my Halloween decorations I noticed these pillar candles that I grabbed from the dollar store. I thought to myself, hey why not turn those into rad little chalkboard candles!?!?! Duh!?!?!? All you need is glass pillar candles, chalkboard contact paper {a craft closet staple} a chalk pen, and 20 minutes!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

so happy together

When I heard the news that my cousin was getting hitched, I jumped at the chance to help out with the decor for their big day!! I absolutely love weddings. . .  true love, endless drinking, dirty dancing, and complete happiness all wrapped up in one night!! With all of that aside, decorating and styling a wedding honestly warms my heart and tickles my fancy. Along with my aunt Alice from Moss to Moon, we created a little magic and had a blast doing it. . .
