Have I mentioned how much I love Game of Thrones? Or how excited I am for it to start up again? Those are rhetorical questions, I KNOW I have mentioned that. At least a time or two. 😉
True to our form, I have been mulling spiced wine in the crock pot all day, we are listening to the GoT soundtrack and I am working on a cake for the Name Day celebration we are having for my good friend Kelly.
But while I wait for the cake to come out of the oven, I thought I would share some family sigils that I created last year for us and a few friends using the Join the Realm Sigil Creator from HBO and picture from our Name Day celebration last year.
For each sigil, I looked up the family crest and if available used the family motto. If not available, I just used one that I liked. 😉 Ours (Chesney) and my brother, also my maiden name (Knisley) are actual historical mottos. How cool is that?!
I also made a facebook cover photo for my personal page!
Last years Name Day celebration for my husband and Kelly (who both have April birthdays) was a lot of fun!
I made a Weirwood cake topper from a incense burner I found at Walmart (then painted of course) and made the cake red velvet (seemed fitting) with cream cheese frosting and pirouette cookies around the edge.
I printed Winterfell beer labels from here and made spiced wine (of course!).
And then printed a few small decorations like these cards from Hero Square .
It was just the four of us so I wanted to keep it festive but still simple!
So what are you doing for the premier of Game of Thrones tonight? Only 2 more hours!!!
