Wishlist || Orange

Monday, September 14, 2015

I'm really feeling the color orange lately. The first few hints of fall are finally appearing here in Tennessee. I saw pumpkins yesterday at the market! Woo hoo! It's also football time in Tennessee. Which means everybody is wearing super bright orange around here. Go Vols! This month's wishlist is inspired by that beautiful color I've been seeing everywhere! :)

A Handcrafted Wedding || Antique Details

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

I've always been the kind of person that preferred antique everything. So we decided to incorporate that as much as we could into our wedding. I had so much fun finding vintage treasures to use in our wedding!

A Handcrafted Wedding || Embroidery

Saturday, September 5, 2015

For our vintage-style wedding, I really wanted to include as many hand-made pieces as I could. And since I love the look of embroidery, I decided that was definitely the way to go. I had so much fun designing and stitching pieces for our wedding!

Wishlist || Embroidery Hoops

Friday, July 10, 2015

As someone who loves cross stitch and embroidery, I always have embroidery hoops lying around the house. I pick them up whenever I find them on sale at craft stores or in yard sales. However, I've never given much thought to the things I could do with the hoops themselves. Until now that is. :)

Crochet Mandala

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

As many of you already know, the crochet community lost one it's finest this past week. Tragically, Marinke (aka Wink) of A Creative Being lost her long battle with depression by choosing to end her life. Wink's work was beautiful and an inspiration to her many followers. 

In memory of Wink and her creative spirit, Kathryn from Crochet Concupiscence has developed a project called Mandalas for Marinke. Because Wink was known most for her mandalas, Kathryn is inviting everyone to create a mandala for Marinke. She is also encouraging everyone to send her the mandalas so that she can combine them into a show that will help raise awareness for depression. You can find more information about the project here.

A Handcrafted Wedding || Chalkboards

Saturday, July 4, 2015

This summer has been such a blessing for me and my new HUSBAND! We got married on May 23rd and have been enjoying spending time with each other before our jobs start in August. We've both been taking a break from pretty much everything and just focusing on our new life together. :)

We just got our wedding photos in and I wanted to share with you some of the DIY/handcrafted things I did for the wedding. I had a great time crafting and putting all of the details together! 

Wishlist || Oh, So LOVE-ly

Friday, February 13, 2015

It's been a month since my last post! Ugh. I hate that things have been so quiet around here lately, but life has been a bit crazy! Thesis-writing, wedding-planning and job-hunting have taken over my life and blogging has had to be put on the back burner for now.

Tyler and I are taking the weekend off from all the craziness and we're planning to enjoy a wonderful Valentine's Day in Nashville. We're going to spend the day eating lots of chocolate, shopping for groomsmen's clothes, and buying my wedding ring!! Eek! (The wedding is in 99 days and I CAN'T WAIT!)

To get the holiday weekend started, here's a little compilation of some fun Valentine-y things I've found on the Interwebs lately. Enjoy!

Ombre Embroidered Necklace

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

I love the ombre trend we've been seeing everywhere lately. It's been around in the crafting world for quite some time now and it looks like it's here to stay. There are so many great ombre pieces out there it inspired me to create my own unique take on this trend! 

A Handcrafted Birthday

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Today is my 24th birthday! This is going to be a BIG year for me. A REALLY big year. I'm going to be graduating with my Master's degree in May, getting married two weeks later, and hopefully finding a "big girl" job! This year is going to be full of changes. I'm very excited about all of these changes, but I'm a bit nervous at the same time. Growing up is not easy!

In honor of my birthday, I thought I'd share with you this lovely, handmade card. It can be used for birthdays, thank-you notes, or anything you'd like really.
