Happy Friday! To finish the week, I’m sharing two videos today. The first was planned, and it’s all about making a Brooch Bouquet. Do you know of a bride who made her own Brooch Bouquet? DIY Brooch Bouquets are a beautiful and sentimental alternative to traditional bridal bouquets. The second video I just saw this morning, and had to share. Plus, I have a Mother’s Day update on the robins nesting on my front porch.
One of the first projects I ever featured on Crafts ‘n Coffee was how to make a Brooch Bouquet. Since then, I’ve found a very helpful video tutorial that shows how to make a Brooch Bouquet. If you or someone you know is thinking about carrying a Brooch Bouquet down the aisle, be sure to check out the 1928 Jewelry blog for photos and the video tutorial. (For another way to use your vintage brooches, don’t miss this tutorial for a Vintage Brooch Wreath.)
And now for the surprise video. When I attended the SNAP Conference, I mentioned that musician Alex Boyé performed for the group. Right after SNAP, Alex invited the SNAP bloggers to take part in a new video. This was a fast-track project, taped last Thursday in Utah and live today on YouTube. It was so much fun to see some of the bloggers I just met participating in the video. Plus, it was filmed in the beautiful Thanksgiving Point Gardens, which I had visited during the 2013 SNAP Conference. The song is “Roar” by Katy Perry, and I hope you’ll take a few moments to watch it.
As Mother’s Day is Sunday, it seems appropriate to share an update on the robins nesting on my front porch. Remember this photo from a few weeks ago? Well, the babies have hatched! I snapped the photos below earlier this week, and the babies already look so much bigger today.
I wish you and your families a very happy Mother’s Day! Do you have any plans for the weekend?
