I also left my job to start nursing school this year which lead to really finding a lot out about myself. You can read all about that adventure and the start of a new one right here. Making the decision to leave nursing school was one of the biggest choices of my life. Science was such a HUGE part of my schooling and I studied my BUTT OFF for years to get the grades I did. There was just this other part of my life that kept tugging at my little heart strings. That would be the whole wonderful and PRETTY world of creativity! Since I was a little girl going to craft shows with my grandmother, I have had a fascination with making ideas come to life and making a setting with details that can make the heart flutter and photos dance! This year, I became a stay-at-home wife and mother and made the choice to really dedicate my time to Love Sparkle Pretty. I have LOTS of big plans this coming year which will be revealed below. Before I jump ahead of myself, here are some highlights of this year with Love Sparkle Pretty.
I created pieces for 42+ weddings all around the world this past year (mind you, I was also on a long break for school) and I can't wait to do many more! These pieces included boutonnieres, veils, flower hair pieces, corsages and necklaces. Here are some of my favorites from 2012.
I also created several more accessories for everyday wear such as scarves, rings, necklaces, and different hair pieces as well as accessories for photoshoots. Here are some of my favorite shoots that I was happy to be a part of!

I also had my first magazine feature this year in Pretty Pear Bride Magazine (pg. 65)! I received a surprise email from a writer for the mag. which was definitely exciting!
Other features included some of my items and posts on other blogs that I adore and I collaborated with many to do several giveaways this year as well! Here are some of the items I gave away this year!
NOW, here's all the great things to come for 2013!
