Sprout


I made these little favors for Chelsea's baby shower this weekend. Chelsea is the most amazing florist. Really, you should check her out. She did a beautiful job for my wedding as well as Holly's. So a potted plant seemed fitting for her.
I liked how they turned out-thanks to Mandy's mom for letting me use her vinyl lettering machine!
DIY-Pot from Ikea 49 cents
Soil from Home Depot 2 bucks (one bag filled eight pots with extra soil to spare)
Grass packet from Home Depot 1 buck (used two packets for eight pots)
Vinyl lettering from Roberts 5 bucks (Came with two sheets-only used 1/4 a sheet)
$12 total for all eight pots.

Next on my list-clean my kitchen windows.

Alana they did turn out so cute! Mark was so excited to see what would grow. He kept asking me if I knew what it was going to be. Even with the big rain drops on my window it makes my kitchen feel like spring.
