Have you seen it?

The current issue of Southern Weddings magazine featured my brother Kurt and my sister-in-law Jodi's wedding. You know them from Jodi Miller Photography! Anyway, this was the first wedding I ever worked on aside from my own, everything was handmade by myself and Jodi. We made close to a mile of garlands alone to hang in the tent, all paper doily poofs that turned out amazing! We made pie stands, napkins, table runners, signs, fabric flowers for each chair and pulled furniture from our homes. We spent close to a year compiling and planning. It takes a whole year to find the perfect mismatched china for 120 guests! Everything turned out perfectly, the rain held out(mostly) and at the very end of everything the bride and groom left under a double rainbow...God's promise times two! I love it! Pick up a copy before they are off the shelves, the whole magazine is piled full of gorgeous, Southern and handmade weddings! Oh and sweet little Keira made it into the issue, she's the little one grabbing the quilt:-)...and the amazing photography is by the very talented Stephanie and Isaac of Stephanie Williams Photography

baby Jack!

Somehow I have managed to not blog since June! I have had a tough year at blogging, so much going on. I was using this blog as sort of a way to compile the things that inspire me and as a reference to them. I feel like I've had so much happening in my life I don't manage to reference anything. Things are just flying by at an unbelievable speed. I miss having the time to wander around the internet. This is Jack, he's my boy! This is the cutest project I have produced during the last few months;). He's 2 months old now, its time for me to get back to work!

More to posts that is, not babies:-) least not yet!

pink flowers

I've been hard at work compiling things for my etsy shop...I know I know! There still isn't anything listed on there. Give me a couple more weeks please:-). I've been trying very hard to get caught up. My computer has some sort of virus that won't allow me to remove pics from my camera. I have to make Chris download all the pics and then send them to me. Needless to say its cramping my style. Time to move my work onto a Mac...but in the meantime I'm making lots of cute little flowers with handmade peonies in the works! I will post some pics soon, I just got the perfect fabric for them:-).


I finally had some time to make Keira some cute little navy blue linen bloomers. They are quite an inky blue and they are thick and soft. She loves them and everyone who has seen them loves them too. I like the versatility, she can either wear them as shorts or under a dress. I made my own pattern so they are original! I might make her another pair next week:-).


So I am sort of disappointed, by the time I realized Bride's magazine was featuring a photo from our Valentine's shoot they had already started taking them off the stands:(. Does anyone have a copy of the June issue of Bride's, I'll buy it off you! The picture was taken by Jodi Miller Photography and its the one of the cupcakes and birds and x's and o's made by Christina Main of Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe! Styling by me:-).

fancy flower

My brother and sister-in-law are the amazing photographers behind Jodi Miller Photography, I'm proud to say. Recently they did some major rebranding to give their packaging, as well as their website, a more hand drawn, handmade kind of feel. They love working with clients who express themselves this way. And! They asked me to create some custome handmade lace flowers to coordinate with the awesome folios my brother created. So here are my humble flowers above with their newly designed packaging! Oh, and the sweet logo and drawings were done by the talented Bill Main!
