mice and birds...well heck I'm ENGAGED!

hello lovely,

this post has practically nothing to do with mice and birds or crafting other than I am the person who makes behind it all.

Niles proposed! It has been a week now and I am still on cloud 9 :) Here are a few pics of our magical day...

Custom Order for Shannon

hello lovely!

This post is primarily for Shannon to see, but I thought I'd share the progress with all. Shannon is marrying Brandon in October and asked me to make her wedding and reception flowers. Of course I was thrilled :) The reception flower has proved to be harder to find but after several trips to area craft stores I think I have found the perfect wedding flower!

Shannon: Would you like feathers or pearls added? Or do you like it just the flower? I made a blue backing (a little secret something blue) I plan in sewing a hair comb to it as well. Give me feedback :)

Side View: This is just sitting on the blue backing, you won't actually be able to see the blue when you wear it.

hope you love it!
