|Eric, Eric’s Mom and I on Mother’s Day|
I can’t believe Mother’s Day is right around the corner! If you are like me it is finally hitting you that you should figure something out for your mom. In typical Levicky fashion, we probably won’t figure out what we are getting our Mom’s until the Saturday before. Hopefully I can at least help get ahead of the game!
We finally (sort of) finished our basement! We are still waiting until later this month to finish the bathroom but the rest of it is finished!
When we looked at the house and saw the basement, we just knew we had to put a bar down there! Eric built it all on his own (besides installing the counters). Check it out!
Okay back to Eric who should have the center of attention. After we put that up, he had to tile.
He has a picture of his dad tiling so he wanted one of himself too.
I thought it looked pretty cute the way it was though. You can decorate it however you want!
You know all of those Pinterest pins that you pin and say “Oh I have to do this one day, I can’t forget!” but you really do until it is too late. Well this time, I didn’t forget!
I would attach the pin but honestly I had never clicked on it before and it was just a picture! After the disappointment warred off and I realized I would have to do it myself, I decided not to share the “link”.
Before I get to the main event, I have to share something. I hate buying cards. Is there a stronger word for hate? Detest, despise, loath. I think they are over priced and never have enough personalization in them.
Don’t worry, my husband hates them too! So we made a deal with each other that we would never buy each other a card again. Yes I know I will regret this one day when I forget to make a card (I almost forgot on his birthday but shhhh).
For the wedding I had to make a card for him to read the day of and I wanted to personalize it just for him and but a little more effort in than drawing a picture like a 2 year old on the front.
So without further ado, here is the card I made him, a suit card!
Now for the pocket. I think it ties the entire card together, especially with the cute pocket squares!
You can use your best judgement for the size of the square but the rest is based on that square. After you cute the square, cut a rectangular shaped piece that is 1/5 of the square. Doing this gives the suit more dimension.
Cut two triangles that overlap and are a little longer than the square and have them overlap a little.
I want to share the favors I made for our wedding! They took some time because I made 200 favors and anything you do 200 times takes awhile!
Our favors were chocolate Xs and Os where each guest got 1 X and 1 O. Whether or not people knew I made the favors, it was nice knowing that I personally made them. The cherry on top is that they were $.50 a favor!
If you would like to buy the same molds I did, here are the links:
I am not going to lie, I am totally blogging for my mother today. In no way, shape, or form did I come up with this idea or even do it.
I want to share what my mother made for Eric and I for our graduation last week. He graduated with his MBA and I graduated with 2 BS. Yay!!
After graduation we went to dinner with our families. Check out this awesome frame/picture Mother had made for us as our joint graduation gift!
Ignore my inability to take a straight picture (no it was not crooked on the wall)! But isn’t this just amazing?! Breathtaking!
She purchased letter photos online and had them matted.
After having the letters matted, she took it to her friend to write Eric and Alyssa, Est. 2013. know, I can’t get over that it is handwritten too!
She then got the whole picture framed. It may be huge, but I LOVE it! Gorgeous, classy and amazing!
This makes me smile every time I look at it. No gallery wall for this, it is the center of attention for the wall!
Thanks again Mother! We love it!
I feel like I have been so far behind on posts lately because I usually write them a week before they post. Here I am writing my post the day of!
Before I begin, I want to give a special shout out to my parents, it is their 25th Anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!
Today I actually want to share something I made my mother for Mothers Day!
Cut 4 loops off of the memory wire
Just a note, I started with the coral shell and ended with one as well.
Slide on a crimp tube, then bead, then crimp tube. Position where you would like the main bead on the bracelet and use the crimp tool to crush the tubes and secure the bead in place.
|This is in the middle of the bracelet|
Repeat until you are done alternating coral shell and twister bead!
Next, I used the needle nose pliers to make a spiral at each end since the wire seemed sharp.
All done! It was so easy too! It turned out perfect and was extremely simple!
What did you do for your mother for Mother’s day?
I am sure you are incredibly sick of candles but one last time!!
My mother and I made even more tea cup candles! But there weren’t any that I had to share and lets face it, you are probably sick of looking at tea cup candles.
Mother and I made more tea cups this week and we are doing our last round next week! It is kind of bittersweet but I am sure we will have plenty more to do for the bridal shower.
I wanted to share our favorite tea cup of this round:
So pretty! We are both currently trying to claim it as our own! If you want to know how to make them, check out my post Tea Cup Candles. So easy!
While we were making them I spilled wax all over myself. Oops!
