A Bouquet Commission

I recently took on the really fun commission of making a bridal bouquet for a wedding in North Carolina.  I had made the  bouquets for my wedding, and the bride loved the concept of something to last forever.  She wanted to keep her color palette limited to whites, grays and silvers and sent me some family heirlooms as well as a beautiful base that she thrifted.  Working on this was an absolute pleasure. I do SO much work digitally that sometimes you just wanna whip out the crazy glue and go wild.  And I did…The result is below! I hope she likes it!!



Whoever would have guest VHS tapes of Gilmore Girls episodes could lead to eternity of best friendship? Haha! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LITTLE PONY! Melissa is 30 today! Wohoo!

Children's Book Love

Children's books are one of my favorite things in the universe, and recently, as I work towards my publishing goals I came across some I had to share! Enjoy!

6 months folks, 6 months!

Today TRISTAN & I ARE MARRIED FOR 6 MONTHS! We have our album now, and ordered some prints of pictures. Our apartment is slowly becoming a shrine to October 6, 2012 and I'm totally ok with it. The photo above of a print I made using photos from our photo booth. It was fun to make (and the world's biggest file) and I'm really happy with how it came out.  The embroidery to the right of the print was made by my friend Jessie. Says "till death do us part" and it's day of the dead style replicas of Tristan & myself. Pretty awesome!!

Friendship & Cooking

I have a love of books about friendship and knitting. I can't help it. As soon as I see the word 'purl' or 'knit' on a cover I'm drawn to it.  However, most recently I've realized it's not only friendship and knitting that interests me. It's friendship and COOKING as well.  The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister was a perfect read for this new-found interest.  I loved the story and the way it was written. I felt like I knew the characters and could smell/taste the food! 

*I need to make note here- juts because I'm interested in READING about cooking doesn't mean I want to start doing it! 
Although…there's a chance I will give it more of an attempt than usual now.
