As Tim and I close on our new home as an officially married Mr. & Mrs., I can't help but to reminiscence on our previous abode. We moved off of Scarlett Woods Court in November 2013 and I took a few cheesy pics during the move that I just found :)
I had my first Etsy.com order this week! It was made by a lovely woman named Pela, all the way from the sun shiney state of California.
Oh yeah, did I ever mention I had an etsy shop?
No I did not. And I attribute that to my "squirrel!" type personality. I'm a pretty fly-by-the-seat-of-my-britches kind of human.... SO, may I introduce the Ash a la Mode shop that's now on etsy! I plan to offer all sorts of handmade items, hence the name "a la mode", but for now I mostly sell wall décor paper prints.
Here's a little taste in case you're pointer finger doesn't feel like clicking my etsy link...
Make Today Ridiculously Amazing | Bedroom, Women's Vanity Home Decor | 8x10 Glossy Art Print
My two nephews, Xander & Xane, were the cutest little ringbearers in their baby pink suspenders and matching bowties. We all know that a kid in a suit can be a tantrum time bomb, so this comfy-cute outfit alternative was great AND stayed within wedding dress code.
We ordered youth suspenders and matching pink bowties from the kellybowbelly shop on etsy for $35 each (plus tax). The rest of the boy's ensemble was charcoal gray Converse sneakers, and black slacks we bought at JCPenney.
DIY RINGBEARER 11x14 SIGN DIY
1) Thin, wood picture frame(s) - you can purchase from a craft store. We bought ours at Hobby Lobby for about $7.00 each. Each frame had a easel-like hinge on the back that the boys were able to hold from behind, and there was no glass/plastic within the frame.
2) Create and format your desired text for your sign(s). I created mine in Microsoft Word and saved as a PDF. I then emailed the two 11x14 PDFs to Wal-Mart to be printed (the photo center does this). There are a lot of printing options - Office Max, Sam's, Kinko's...etc...
If you don't know how to email, I imagine that taking them on a flash drive USB to be printed would be fine too.
3) Lastly, we painted 'em pink with baby pink acrylic paint, and glued / taped on the sign prints.
If your fiancé isn't loving the idea of a little one walking down the aisle with your $pricey$ wedding band, these ring bearer signs made for a super cute alternative!
