I got in my circle cutter! And I can't wait to put it to use to make something like this...
This, of course, is another wonderful idea from Martha Stewart. I love the varying colors of the circles and the sizes of the banners. Who would have thought a mini banner would look so cute hanging on a floral arrangement? Now my mind is swimming with possibilities.
However, I will have to save my banner making for another day because today I am preparing for my first "gathering" at our house. And I'm very excited about it. It won't be anything big, just a few of the spouses from Jon's work. But I think it will be fun. AND it gives me the opportunity to finally use some of my platters, pitchers, cake stands and serving pieces that we got at our wedding.
I realize I have a whole lifetime to use all of the wonderful goodies we received, but I'm the type of person who wants to use things right when I get them. I mean what's the point of having something if you aren't going to put it to use, right? So today is a good day for me :) And I think we'll have to have gatherings at our house more often from now on!
