How to Make a Tissue Paper Garland


Hey guys! Long time, no hear huh? Things have been crazy busy around here. Sophia is on the move and since being home from vacation, she picked up some not so nice habits of wanting to skip naps and sleep in our bed and wake up a million and one times throughout the night and not to mention the poor kid is still teething and not a single tooth has broke through yet! So this mama is tired and doesn't have the time to dedicate to blog as much as I wish I did. I have tons of ideas and I have photos for the posts, I just need to draft it but by time Anthony is home from work, it is straight school mode or we relax and enjoy each other's company. I mean you guys get it. Life happens and there are certain seasons you enter that are crazy hectic and exhausting but I wouldn't change this season we are in for the world. Being a mama is my dream and I am getting to live it and I love it with all it's challenges and rewards.

With all that said, I did manage to sneak some time for a Halloween tutorial, yay me! Honestly, this tutorial can be used for anytime or any occasion. The color of tissue papers you use is what makes it fit the occasion. For me, I created this purple and metallic silver garland for a Halloween movie night I hosted for my sister's 30th birthday. I wanted the decor to be simple yet fun so I decorated my TV dresser (we are using a dresser as our TV stand) as if it was a mantel because we don't have one and I provided a popcorn bar (I unfortunately did not get pictures of this because, let's be honest, I suck at this professional blogging thing. I did get inspiration from here so check Jessica's post if you are interested in how to set up a popcorn bar).



Anyways, this project was free for me because I am a tissue paper hoarder. I am that person that carefully opens gifts and folds all the tissue paper neatly and saves the gift bags/boxes to reuse and I am also that person that tells people to not rip the box or tissue paper that I put their gift in because I can still reuse it another time. Don't judge.

Supplies
Tissue Paper (I used 4 sheets, 2 purple and 2 silver)
String (I used black twine)
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks
Scissors















I broke the steps down and tried to make it as dummy proof as possible, I even contemplated making a video tutorial but with a talkative and active baby, I only get one shot so I didn't try but if your interested in that kind of thing, let me know in the comments and I will update the tutorial if needed!






The greatest part of this tutorial is it is basically free or cost very little money.

So be honest, who else is a tissue paper hoarder?

Ericia and DJ Mommy and Me Session with a Mini Birthday Session


It's been while since I have shared some photography sessions as I have been trying to keep up with my almost 8 month old. Like holy cow, next week I will have an 8 month old baby; I plan on sharing her 8 month update soon but for the meantime check out her 7 month update.

Anyways, this Mommy and Me session (see my last one here) was quite the adventure. We were battling the humidity, mosquitoes, the setting sun, a fussy baby and an exploring toddler. It was a lot of fun but definitely an adventure, haha.

Seven Month Update | Little Love



My baby girl is getting so big and so fast, I need time to slow down like for real. Can someone enact the same curse that the Evil Queen did for Storybrooke?


Everyday Sophia is learning something new and once she learns something, its stuck in her head and she knows she can do it and there is no stopping her! She is one determined little baby and, boy, does she get frustrated when things don't go her way or if she can't get something done fast enough (I wonder where she learned that from?).

Six Month Update | Little Love


I am super late in posting Sophia's 6 month update, she is actually 7 months today but with daddy starting school and mommy being his tutor and editor I haven't had the chance to finish her update although it has been drafted since she was 6 months.

It's been 6 months or 26 weeks or 184 days since I have had this beautiful little girl. That's half a year and if this half has speed by I can't even imagine how fast this next half will flash before our eyes. Before I know it you will be a walking and talking full functioning human. The days seem long but the weeks are speeding by.
