Burlap banner

My son made his First Holy Communion yesterday.  Every child makes a banner for their special day.  A lot of people ordered a kit to make their banner.  I am too cheap to do that so we made one with what we have around the house.  I recently made some burlap curtains (another post coming soon on those).  So I have extra burlap right now.

I used a piece of burlap and twine to hang the banner.  I used my cricut to cut out the letters and the date numbers.  We also printed out the cross and host.  I think it turned out great especially for FREE!!

Fabric Flower Necklace

My lovely niece and I made a couple of fabric flower necklaces.  Not the best pictures.  Again, sorry about that.  I am working on my picture taking skills.  

I just adore the way fabric flowers turn out.  So cute and very easy.  Here is a great tutorial over at tater tots and jello.

I will be making more of these necklaces and I'd like to make a tutorial the next time.  Have a great day!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

This was my plate tonight.  I cooked tilapia, black beans, and quinoa.  I chopped up a mango and put that on some greens with cilantro.  Guacamole, sour cream, and salsa added wonderful flavors.  I also made cheese quesadillas and nachos for my kids.  This plate of food was so tasty!
