Rebrand Launch!

AnnouncementMy sweetest friends! I have amazing news. Since 2013 I’ve blogged as “My Creative State of Mind”. I was never fully vested into that name, but it served me very well. Here I am in 2018 announcing my rebrand launch and debuting my new logo as:

MoonChin - OpaqueThe original logo was hand drawn by a local artist friend ❤

The name comes from my husband. Since our early dating stage he’s referred to my actual chin as a “moon chin”. It’s got a Jay Leno thing going on … Yes, we’re still married LOL 😆 it’s become a term of endearment. So when I was brainstorming for a brand name I needed something that resonated with me and my personality.

Thank you everyone that has stuck it with me. I’m excited to post my same crafty projects, just under an updated brand name. All of my social media links have been updated.

Paper Flower Unicorn Display

It’s the middle of the week guys! We’re almost there ✊

I’m beyond excited to share this display with you all. It’s a unicorn!!! These unicorn theme is increasingly popular, so I was very happy to finally receive a special order from another local vendor.

All visible pieces, except the eyelashes, are adhered to a foam board to stay flat and together. The back is supported with small wood dowels so that nothing bends or flops over.

The three smaller individual flowers are for the tablecloth pin-ups. The largest petal on these pin-up flowers is the smallest petal on the unicorn display.

Large Baptism Paper Flowers

My crafty friends!!! 🙌

If you follow my FB page then you’ve already seen this gorgeous set of paper flowers that stood in the center of a baptism reception. Please visit and LIKE my page to receive project updates!
This set was done in the same fashion as my previous displays. However, I started cutting the displays in half which makes for easier transport and set up. They come together on the stand and look seamless 👍
This display includes the spray painted roses that I shared earlier this week. Please watch the video in this post to see how I went about that.

Pink, White, Gray Paper Flowers

My original paper flower layout was pink, white, and gold. This is the same layout with gray! I LOVE IT 💜 The different types of flowers and petal sizes absolutely work together. This was for a baby shower. Please LIKE and SHARE this blog post!

Watch this video to watch me spray paint a few petals before putting it all together. Also in the video you’ll see that I spray painted over the manufacturer labels on the PVC pipes for my backdrop stand 👍

Thanks for visiting! Keep an eye out for the paper flower display that includes these beauties! 💖

Paper Rose Table Backdrop

Roses are an elegant flower. Even more so when they’re LARGE paper flowers behind a dessert table! I loved making this gorgeous paper flower set.

Wedding Paper Flower Backdrop

2018-04-06-21-27-02

My friends! I’m sharing an awesome set of paper flowers I made for a wedding table backdrop. I adore this bold combo of colors! It’s the same design as the last pink and gold set, but just different colors. Makes it look totally different!

So sweet! The table was used to hold bouquets, card box, bubbles, and the Polaroid for everyone to take a picture in front of the flowers. The pictures were added to cardstock for the guests to sign next to their pictures. Such an adorable idea!

Behind-The-Scene Pictures:

The following pictures show the back of the stand. Even though it’s not what clients see, it’s still important to keep it neat back there.

Introducing my new feet! The previous ones seen in my diy stand video were too long. They were easily tripped on if clients removed the table and used the backdrop for pictures. Even in the Ninjago backdrop pictures you could see the legs extend past the table. No bueno! Now with these shorter bad boys, the stand is still sturdy and versatile.

Here’s one I know most of you are curious about. The flowers are not pinned to the curtain. They droop and face down when they’re pinned. So, I hot glue them to a foam board that’s cut to the right shape. When the white curtain is behind it all, you don’t even notice the foam board! . . . The foam board is hanging on the bottom of the stand in this picture just while I organize and adhere the flowers. Once I’m done it goes to the top half of the stand.

That’s that, folks! I hope you enjoyed today’s late night post. Until the next project ❤
