Engagement Gift & Valentines Decor...

Well it has been a VERY unproductive weekend here at 6904... I have been in bed since Friday night with fever, tested positive for strep-- not the flu (thank goodness). So, needless to say my new years resolution has yet to be touched for another weekend! In the meantime, I have done a few projects since my last post! I will share those with you today.

A couple of weeks ago our friends Scott & Kristen got engaged!! I made them a really cute gift & naturally, forgot to give it to them! I was more excited to give Kristen wedding magazines! That was my favorite thing to do when Taylor and I were engaged. I made Scott & Kristen their first stereotypical "Monogrammed Wedding Gift". A frame with their soon to be married name!

I started out with a frame... I have a stash of frames that I tend to stock up on during Hobby Lobby's sale. So naturally, I just grabbed one from the closet. :) I filled the frame with some burlap-- once again, this is one of those things that I have just hanging out in the closet!!

Lastly, thanks to my handy dandy Cricut...

I cut a "C" from black vinyl and pasted right smack on the front of the glass and ended with this great engagement gift!

Congrats to Scott & Kristen !!

Last week I also got to work on a Valentine's Day Banner...

I cut the large hearts at 4'', the medium hearts are 1 3/4" and the letters are 1''. I cut them all out on my cricut machine and hot glued them all to twine. I gave the banner to my mom to use in her booth this month at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo! Hopefully she will email me a picture or two to share with you later on!


  1. I wish I had even HALF of the creativity that you do. That's a great engagement gift. Very cute, and inexpensive, I'm sure! Love it.

    I hope you get to feel better. Lots of fluids and rest! :)

  2. Very cute frame! I always have a stash of frames too from HL. I used one in my last post. :)
