David and Milia's GORGEOUS colorful wedding--with a Love Sparkle Pretty bridal piece :)

This morning, I got an email from Milia--a wonderful customer who asked me to create a custom bridal piece for her big day. I used an ivory and mustard yellow color palette and created a birdcage veil for her.
{You can read more about it in my past post--here}
I was so excited to see some of the photos that she sent me!
She made such a STUNNING bride and her wedding theme and decor was absolutely GORGEOUS!
This spring wedding is so precious and the day looks like it couldn't have been more perfect.
These amazing photos were taken by Him & Her Photography!
I had to share!

The details of their wedding are just beautiful! So cheerful, colorful, & thoughtful! You can tell that a lot of {love} went into the planning of this wedding.

At each table, the bride and groom wrote a promise to each other on chalkboards. Such a great idea!
My favorite is "I promise to warm your hands when they are cold " from David. SOOOO romantic!

Congrats to David and Milia on your marriage!
I wish you all the very best and THANK YOU again so very much for giving me the opportunity to create a custom piece for your special day!
It really means a lot!

Self Portrait Saturday + Mani Monday...ummm I don't know what day it is!

Today is Self Portrait Saturday
& originally, I wasn't going to even post today seeing how I have LOTS to do but somehow in the middle of studying, I found myself painting my nails and then posing with a teacup...
YES! A darn teacup!
Anywho, here it is, my self portraits for the day & my "Mani Monday"...a little early. :)

Dana from Wonder Forest said that there was no theme for today's post but if we wanted to do "something white" for the theme, well then it was our choice...hence a WHITE tea cup! {GENIUS--I know!} ::total sarcasm::

I used "Feeling Great" by SinfulColors Professional nail polish
and added some pretty spring fabric to my "ring fingers."
It's very "cheery" I must say :)

That's all for today!
Don't forget to link up and join the fun.

Newest creations + a weee bit of organizing + a couple relaxing trips to the mountains

I have been so busy lately with finals for my nursing assessment class and some new well as a couple trips to the mountains with the husband and little guy for some fresh air. :)
I wanted to share a couple of the newest projects I have completed to sort of "catch myself up."

First, I finished a custom order for 6 boutonnieres for a lovely bride-to-be the other day and I am so happy with them! The color palette is so pretty and she sent me the crystal buttons to add to them! Aren't they pretty?
The bride-to-be even suggested that I add these to the shop.
What do you think? :D
Also, I received an order for a flower hairpiece for a prom in North Carolina.
This sweet girl sent me a message with a photo of her dress she will be wearing and wanted the "Tiffany Hairpiece" with bits of aqua mixed into it to match her dress.
Read the post about it here.
Well, she sent me a couple photos she took before she went to the prom and I wanted to share them. :)
Whenever someone sends me photos of what I created for them, it makes me SUPER excited--
just so you know! ::wink winkk::

Another piece I just recently finished was a flower hairpiece for my sister-in-law.
It was her birthday and she hinted that she wanted a brown flower hairpiece so I made her just what she "hinted." lol
I used brown chiffon fabric for the petals, sewed 3 pearls to the center, and added 3 different brown feathers.
I think it came out so cute and I even added it to the
Love Sparkle Pretty Shop! :)
Want different colors?
Send me an email:
or a convo on Etsy! :)
The other morning I also sent a little piece of my heart to France in this little envelope!
I have shipped to all over the world but I received my first order from France the other day.
The bride-to-be ordered a "Rustic-Inspired Boutonniere" and I was so excited because I have always wanted to visit France!
I even wrote a bit of french (for the first time) in her thank you card. :)
Aurevoir little boutonniere!
Not only have I been making some new items, I have also been organizing a bit...just a bit though!
The other night, I sat down on the floor in my craft room and just started sorting some of my feathers--actually, HUNDREDS of my feathers (which I still have THOUSANDS left to organize :-/).
 My husband also came in and helped me...what a great guy right? :)
Here's a photo of my "feather rainbow"
& a weee-bit of organzing in my little "cubby holes."
Although I had lots of creating to do, I took a couple breaks with the husband, our little man, and a couple good friends to Crestline and a trip to Big Bear Lake.
We enjoyed God's beautiful creations and just relaxed!
Here are a couple photos from each trip. :)
From Crestline on our "Heart Rock" hike.
From beautiful Big Bear Lake
What a great way to end a busy couple of weeks right? :)
