creative spotlight.

Like I mentioned last week, my college roommate, Kate, is getting married.

She is amazing.  She planned my entire wedding.  I mean from start to finish.  She will probably be a famous wedding planner some day.  That all the big stars want.  For real.  She is that good.

So of course, you know her wedding is going to be amazing.

Just to give you an idea of how good she is, she got engaged last July.  
She had everything planned,
down to our hair appointments,
by the end of August.

I am not kidding.

She is also DIYing a ton of her wedding.  

One of her fabulous ideas was having a craft day.

She had all of her bridesmaids come and craft everything from flowers to table decorations to frames to favors to the candy jars being used for the candy table.  [Sidenote: Have you been to a wedding with a candy table?  The coolest thing ever].

So, on that day we all got together at her parent's house.
Her mom, who is an amazing cook [and was like my local mom while I was in college], made lunch for all of us and we sat around and crafted for like seven hours.

Can I just say, I was in heaven.
That is my thing, yall.  
Seriously, I love it - so crafting with a bunch of my favorite people for a full day was

While we were there Kate showed us a little project that her mom whipped up.
It was such a good idea [yes, it runs in the family :)] that I told her she had to have a spotlight on the ol' blog.

She found some tea towels in the dollar spot at Target and decided to use a few of them to make a table runner.

Here's Vanna, err...I mean Kate, showing it off.

Isn't that the best idea ever?

Super easy, cheap and the cutest table runner ever!

Here's an up close shot:

And then of course, I had to get the crafter, herself:

Now run along and get your dollar spot tea towels! 
But one condition - I want to see pictures! 
It would make me super happy!
