When I do open the mailbox and find the new Martha Stewart Living magazine has arrived or a handwritten envelope smiling up at me, my heart swells. Being a stay at home mom, sometimes it truly is the simple things that make me smile.
In a world of evites and text messages, we wanted to set the tone for Grace's 3rd birthday party, an arts and crafts party, with these handmade invitations.
The invitations were cut in the shape of a painter's palette. The 1 inch circles of color, yet another reason I love trips to Home Depot, came from paint chips.
The paintbrushes, a 12 piece paintbrush set purchased from The Dollar Store for, you guessed it, a dollar.
If you happen to be curious, today was one of those bills/junk mail days.
Be sure to check out the rest of the details from Grace's Art Party.
