Gifted Garter

I wanted to share a little bit of my crafting on my blog. I found an adorable garter on Etsy several months ago. My Friend Nicole thought that we could create one instead of paying someone else to do it. She is very good at organizing and pulling lots of things together, for showers, weddings, etc. She really should open a party/wedding planning business (: Her husband's cousin Lauren is getting married this summer, June 2nd. So we decided back in August to attempt to make this garter as a gift for her and then if it didn't work out we had plenty of time to find another one. So we decided on incorporating "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue" into this hand-crafted garter [it was an idea we got from Etsy as well].

Something Old - Pieces of material and lace from her aunt's veil and wedding dress and the seed pearls on the blue flower

Something New - The garter and the white linen flower and cream flower

Something Borrowed - The large pearl from a work friend's earring in the center of the cream flower

Something Blue - The blue flower...obviously (:

She was very excited and loved it a lot. And Nicole was turned out very well and can be a sentimental keepsake long after the wedding! [We also made a toss garter that matched the main garter]

Oh what fun a crafting business would be!

Family Crest [Painting]

My most recent painting...

Brandon's sister had the idea for this painting for his 21st birthday. His Grandpa made a table and painted the flowers and family crest on it. I love this one (:

Razorback Gymnastics

On Friday night, i went with my Dad and brother to the final home meet of the season for the Arkansas Gymbacks. It was Senior Night for 3 of the ladies as well. I wish i had been more involved this season with the team because MAN are they fun to watch! The event was incredible, Arkansas beat Minnesota and the seniors got to go out with a bang. Jaime Pisani is currently ranked number 1 in the nation

Here is a link to the news story.

Jaime's results:

She was incredible! After the meet, Joe had his picture made with her (: Fun times.

Musical Mood

I'm loving Christina Perri right now. I should probably buy her cd...

A song about love...

A song about loss...
