DIY Drink Stirrers

Just in time for July 4th, I did a fun DIY project ... Drink Stirrers! Inspired by the hushedCOMMOTION flowers! 

You will need:

- Three colors of silk organza (one should be printed). 1/2yrd each. 

- Wooden skewer sticks (like for kebabs) 

- Twine

- Glue gun

- Scissors

You can create your own stencils for the circles by using a thick card stock paper and using circular items from around your house to trace with. Cups, bowls, rolls of tape...  

The diameters I used were: 3 3/4", 3", 2 1/2".

To create the ruffles, use the two step folding process pictured above, then hot glue the end so that they don't unfold.

Fill a glass, and enjoy! 

You can also use your festive stirrers as a skewer for lemon and lime slices!

I recently was introduced to the very talented and inspring Chris of Chromatic Gallerie, let me tell you, she is one incredible lady - with an awesome shoe company!

Chris had struggled with wanting to wear heels for work and for play, but just couldn't find the right fit or height while still being chic, so she came up with Chromatic Gallerie! A full service, customizable shoe company! You can choose:

And shhh, a little bird told me there are some more fun custom options coming soon! 

Even better... they are only $88 each! You can't beat that. Plus, for bridal parties, they have a bulk order discount!

Pretty awesome right?! I myself, am very picky about my shoes, if just one little aspect about them is wrong, I won't buy them. These heels have a comfortable round toe, a pretty little heel and just the right amount of shoe cleavage (ladies, you know what I'm talking about!). 

So, weather you are getting married and need a pretty and comfy heel (love their baby blue suede heel!), going out on a date, or trying to stay chic in the office, hop on over to Chromatic Gallerie

Cheers!
