Jim, Jack, Johnny Red, Johnny Black, and Jose; all my favorite men.

Recently I had the opportunity to make an amazing arrangement for my friends Birthday.  She found this picture on Pinterest and asked if I could do something similar.

Though I haven't done anything like before I was totally down for the task.  She was having a Heaven and Hell themed birthday party so I thought this idea pretty much rocked.
I went to my beloved hobby lobby and went to town picking out my materials following this gals insturctions.  When I arrived home I got started with my BFF, my hot glue gun and the end product was beyond amazing. I am so pleaseed how they turned out.
The next day I was so excited to deliver these to the birthday girl and boy was she happy.  She told me they were a huge hit!!!

Southern Belle Bouquets

I official launched my company for Southern Belle Bouquets back in March.  Since then I have gotten quite a few orders for my fabric bouquets.  Its so funny how every bride is different in the style, theme and color that they choose for their wedding.  I thought today I would show you some of my bouquets and what I have been spending my down time on from time to time.

First up is just a reminder of what my bouquet looked like.  I spent countless hours scourin the internet for the perfect purple bouquet but nothing compared to the vision I had in mind...

Alas, she was done.  So beautiful, so feminine, rustic and antique at the same time.  I am still so in love with my bouquet.  The countless hours, cuts and hot glue gun burns were all worth while.  
I also realized how passionate I am for creating these bouquets and making each one perfect and beautiful in their own way.

This was my first offical order for a girl from work. She heard what I did for my wedding and asked if I would do one similar but in hues of blue. 

This was a corsage I made for the daughted of the lady I used to work with.  She wanted something for prom that would last forever.  I think I could say I accomplished that.

I even hand sticked on the back "Prom 2012" so years from now she can remember that fun day!!

These are some corsages I made for a bride going with a camo theme.

 This is the bouquet for my "Camo Bride"
So far I think I am off to a great start. I just need to get our house more organized now after the move to get some more orders rolling in.
Dont forget to check out my etsy shop either.

This Land Was Made For You and Me.

Now do you have that song stuck in your head?

So you want to hear some news and what this song has everything to do with?  Wel... dun dun dun dunnnnnn... Aaron and I are offical land owners.  Yup, thats right. We purchased 5 acres just two weeks ago and are planning on building our dream home this next year.  We are beyond thrilled. 

Mind you there have been some slight adjustments on the home front.  We are now living with the mom in law but all is good and we are making do in our tight but cozy quarters.  The pups love it because they have an extra friend now- which in puppy land means more fun times and someone else to play with.

So I just wanted to let y'all know.  We are so excited for what the next year holds. I just can't wait to build a life with one amazing man and all the good things that God has in store for us.
