remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 3)

This is the last post of Remy’s birthday pictures. I wish that I could publish more! Having you all see the photographs makes it feel as if you were there as well.

Selecting only thirty-six of 333 images was so difficult. However, I think that the ones that I did settle upon embody the essence of the party. In my opinion, it was visually stunning, filled with all of the best people, and love. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

I am so glad that we went with Meraki + Light. These pictures turned out to be the most beautiful ones that our family now have.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 2)

A few days ago, I revealed the photographs from the first part of Remy’s Moonrise Kingdom party. 

When I had booked Tammy from Meraki + Light, we had discussed having family portraits taken. Given that there was no natural light in the room that we rented, we decided to go into the library itself and take some pictures by the large windows. Here are a few of those photos. I think they turned out perfectly.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 1)

2y5a00796-copyWe had decided to hire a photographer for Remy’s birthday party shortly after deciding to make it a big event. Much like her birth, we knew that we didn’t want to worry about capturing the many moments, but to be completely focused on our little girl without any distractions. 

2y5a00837-copyThere is an incredible amount of photographers in our city, so which one would we choose? Knowing that my neighbour has had a few family portraits done, I enlisted her help. I asked her if she could pick her top three photographers in the city, which ones would they be? Without hesitation she answered that she would give anything to be photographed by Meraki + Light.

Here is part one of the pictures.

make your own: glitter banner

GlitterBanner8The idea for a glitter banner stemmed from a DIY that I saw on A Beautiful Mess. As soon as I came across this easy tutorial, I knew that I was going to make my own version of it. I had plans to do one for Christmas, but given that it very quickly became a very hectic season, I had to scrap it and save it for another day. Although it’s not a very manly project, I decided to create a glitter banner for Geoffrey’s birthday. I loved the results so much that I plan on displaying it year-round in The Little Barn!

This is what you’ll need to make your own banner:

GlitterBanner1Glitter foam sheet (2)
Suede lace
Scissors
Printer
Printer paper
X-acto knife
Crazy glue
Pen
Cardboard

Steps:

GlitterBanner31. Using your computer and printer, create the word of your choice on a Word Document or any free stencil software in large letters. Print. Cut out each individual letter. Set aside.

2. Lay out the glitter foam sheets so that the glitter sides are facedown. Place each letter on the back of the foam sheet, in the reverse direction. (I initially forgot to do this, and began to trace them right side up.) Then trace the letters onto the back of the glitter sheets.

3. After all of the letters are traced, begin to cut them out using an X-acto knife. Be sure to place a piece of cardboard under the sheets to avoid cutting your crafting surface.

GlitterBanner44. Once the letters have been cut out of the foam sheets, place them face down. Spell out the word that you are creating in reverse, glitter side down. Take the suede lace and string it along the top of each letter. Glue it to the back of the letter with the crazy glue.

GlitterBanner65. Once the glitter banner is dry, the last step is to hang it! Make sure to place it front and centre for all to enjoy.

it’s (not) my party and i’ll cry if i want to

IMG_0561 copy IMG_0569 copyIMG_0578 copy IMG_0571 copyIMG_0588 copy IMG_0600 copyIMG_0598 copy IMG_0602 copyIMG_0605 copy Hey guys! So my niece celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago, and I have the pictures to prove it. We spent the day at the provincial park of our future home. It was really nice to get a small taste of what get-togethers will be like out there, with the beach, BBQ pits, mini golf, a park, campground, a pool, and water slides as our playground. Summer doesn’t last very long in Saskatchewan, so I hope that we can celebrate out there whenever we have the chance to! I’m just lucky to have family members that want to share time and our new home with us.

Have a great week, friends!
