Recently. {pretty pieces + free coffee + naps}

Lately, I have been a busy body working on several different orders ranging from wedding pieces to cute flower hairpieces. It's such a blessing to do what I love!
I'm still trying to juggle a busy "work schedule" with home life and it's a little difficult since I work from home. Although I make my own schedule, I still have deadlines to meet and people counting on me so getting into a routine is my challenge. If you have any advice, this wife, mommy and handmade business owner would much appreciate it! :)
In the mean time, here are some of my recent orders/pieces of handcrafted love.
{enjoy}

This was a custom order of boutonnieres that I just sent out to Illinois. It was such a pleasure to work with the bride on her adornments for the guys. Although there was a lot of "mind changing" on her end, this bride was so funny and positive which made working with her a joy! I can't wait to see the photos of the big day!

These 3 hairpieces were made for a really good friend of mine. They are so fun and perfect for spring!

For the first time, I created a garter set (yes I am admitting this) and I absolutely ADORE them! I used vintages broaches, rhinestones, feathers, chiffon, and hand cut lace to create these pretty little treasures. I have another custom order for a garter set and will be adding garters to the shop soon!

This antique-inspired boutonniere just went out to Georgia to adorn a prom date. I love getting orders for high school homecoming dances and prom! Reminds me of those funny memories that seem to have taken place so long ago.

This one of a kind bridal hairpiece was sent out to Alabama for a wedding that is actually taking place tomorrow! So happy for this bride and I can't wait to see the photos!

That's about it for the sharing of some recent orders. Makes me so happy to be able to send a little piece of my craft room to someone else's doorstep miles away. :)

Other than working in the craft room, I have also:
*started a new devotion in the book of Matthew
*received a free cup of coffee from Starbucks (whoop!)
*killed a gigantic spider while just about having an anxiety attack
*been puked on by my oh so adorable son
*received {just because} flowers from the husband

*opened up my new Gussy Sews package-hello super cute camera strap cover

*made an entire platter of food for women's bible study-pretty proud of myself because I will usually just pick something up from the store
*took a small afternoon nap because sometimes, the need succeeds the want

Have a beautiful weekend my friends!
