Garlic Chicken Pasta

My Garlic Chicken Pasta is an age old recipe I made up back in my college days (hehe I know super old), its easy, filling and yummy.  Perfect for a college student without a meal plan and still perfect for my more adult days which are always guaranteed to be hectic!

If you dont like garlic....well 1. Your crazy (just kidding of course but really?) and 2. This is definitely not the recipe for you because its pretty much centered around the good stuff.

mmmm such a simple concept yet so yummy, now here's how its done:

Party People T-Shirts

My last post was about Bride & Bridesmaid Sashes that I made for a friend's bachelorette party.  I also was tasked with making t-shirts for everyone as well.  Yes I could have ordered some Bride and BM t-shirts online and made my life easier but NOPE I really wanted them to be custom for Shelly's bach.  Having 4 custom t-shirts made up would have been $30 a pop, I knew there had to be a way to do this cheaper considering blank t-shirts at Michaels are like $2.99!

I actually think they turned out AWESOME - but lets see what you all think :)

We even got stopped in Vegas and asked where we bought them.  When the bride told the girl that I made them she was in SHOCK.  Yey!!

Sassy Satin Sashes

This weekend I am off to Vegas for one of my close friends Bachelorette parties, yey! I am in the wedding which is in May.  The other bridesmaids and I wanted to do lots of special things for the bride this weekend and I knew it was a perfect opportunity to use my craft skills to whip up some fun stuff!!

A bachelorette party isnt complete without sashes pointing out who everyone is, but the ones they sell in the store first of all are huge (my own was literally falling off me my entire bach party) and they are just pretty standard.  I figured I could buy some fabric, do a little fabric painting and whip up some pretty awesome custom ones.

I am really happy with how they came out, I hope the bride is too!  Now you could make these sashes for so many things other then a bachelorette party like - halloween costumes, birthday party, mother-to-be for a baby shower, or princess for a day for a little girl would be super cute!!

Heres how I did it

Changeable Cork Centerpiece

When we moved into our new place in Austin we splurged on an awesome dining room table and chairs. Ahh I am obsessed! This one was much bigger/nicer/sturdier/long lasting/etc/etc than the one we had back in DC. So immediately I really wanted to get (make) a nice casual centerpiece for it that we could use year round.

If you know me and the hubs at all you know we loooove our wine, so I figured something wine themed would be appropriate, and I came up with this:
