Day 13 & Some Cookies

Today’s photo challenge was kind of weird: A photo edit that you like.   So I interpreted as my favorite ways to edit my photos. And that would be 1) My favorite Lightroom preset, and 2) washi tape strips!  Here’s an example:

I almost always quickly edit all my photos in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (I’m no fancy pants). I have a bunch of “presets” I can use to quickly click and edit photos, but my most used/favorite edit is called “Afternoon Delight“, which adds a touch of goldenness/rustic-ness to photos, which I love. Oh and washi tape strips from Pugly Pixel are my favorite ways to add text to photos 🙂

Anyways, some other things I wanted to share….some lovely friends of mine got married this weekend, aren’t they cute? Adrien (da man) has been a friend since I was in high school, and his new wife, Jen, and I have become friends since they started dating.

I helped them with some wedding stuffs, Jen did a ton of DIY and I was happy to share ideas and thoughts. But I also helped put together a cookie bar for them. Here were the results!

Since I only have one little cake stand, I decided it would be best/cheapest to just make some more. I picked up a set of white dishes at Goodwill ($10 for maybe 18-ish plates) and some glass candlestick holders from Goodwill and the dollar store.  Glued em together and voila!  I spent less than $20 and made 3 stands with 2-3 plates on each and could have made a few more 🙂  And if you’re wondering, I made chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and chocolate salted caramel cookies.  We also had milk at the table. Perfection!
