Relief Society Project

Hey everyone,  I finally have a little bit of time to put up this quick post.

One of the projects I was recently in charge of was doing the invitation for our Relief Society Birthday dinner.  The theme was Old Nauvoo.  I did the invitation first.  Hope you like it.  I used the PDDU cart for the covered wagon, and for the tag/label I used the Once upon a Princess cart.  I used brown chalk for most of the distressing.


They wanted me to do some little things to go on the tables with the centerpieces.  I used the covered wagon again only smaller and distressed it just like the invitation.


On a dessert table they wanted me to make their little annoucements "cute".   So this is what I came up with based on what they said.  The first one talks about homemade gingerbread cookies they used to make in pioneer times.  Once again I used the PDDU cart for the gingerbread, and distressed it. 


The other one talked about how the pioneer women cooked and baked bread.  I just had to make this cute little pioneer woman from, you guessed it, PDDU.  I thought she turned out so cute with her little mixing bowl and spoon.


The dinner was nice and the company was great.  It was nice to have a night with my husband, away from home. I'm sure many of you feel the same way sometimes.
Well, I will see you soon.  Thanks for visiting.
