Newborn Headband Project…

Newborn Headband Project...
Last week, one of my past brides who has become a friend, asked me if I could make her some newborn headbands for her baby girl who made her debut into this world on Friday. She is planning a newborn shoot in a few weeks and asked if I could create something for her. I was a little reluctant but agreed. I have never made newborn headbands so I was a bit nervous, bu[...]

Lots of Peonies…

Lots of Peonies...
An Etsy buyer contacted me several months ago and wanted to purchase a dozen long stem peonies for her best friend. Her best friend apparently grows a huge garden of peonies in all sorts of colors and varieties. That would be an awesome site to see! Here are a few photos of the peonies I made. All are roughly 6-6.5 inches in diameter in shades of pink, red, cor[...]

Peachy Pink Peony Bouquet

Peachy Pink Peony Bouquet
  Last week I got an order for my peachy pink peony bouquet listing that I had on Etsy. I made this bouquet probably 2 years ago and had it as a made-to-order item. I was excited to see that someone wanted it again. I love peonies and I love this bouquet. It's simple but is beautiful with subtle shades of peach to pink. Each peony is roughly 6 inches in di[...]

Magnolia Hair Flowers….

Magnolia Hair Flowers....
A client asked me recently to make her a magnolia hair flower. I haven't done one in a long time for a bride's hair, but I have always wanted to offer it in my Etsy shop. So, I decided to make two so that I could list the 2nd one if it turned out well.I really think 2 would be STUNNING for a bride. These are 4 inches in diameter, but I could certainly make 2 of differ[...]

Light Purple Trio of Hyacinth, Lilac and Sweet Peas
Ever since I found these cute vases, I've been spinning my creative wheels thinking up some cute trios of flowers to put in them. My inspiration was from my dear friend Susana at citrusandorange blog! She was redesigning the bedroom of her 2 beautiful daughters and she had stated how she loves lilac and sweet peas. The room was filled with love shades of purple and ye[...]

New Poppy Cake Flower Trio in Two Shades... Lemon Yellow and Salmon Pink
After making the poppy hair flowers, I decided to make a trio of the salmon pink poppies as cake flowers. I got to thinking that lemon yellow would be equally as beautiful, so late last night after a business meeting I decided to stay up and complete those flowers as well.So this morning I finished the accent painting and assembly and decided to list the flowers for [...]

New Hair Flower Listings…. Poppies!

New Hair Flower Listings.... Poppies!
I've been trying to find new things to offer in my Etsy shop. Always being creative is not as easy as one thinks. I think in 2010-2011, I felt drained from being so busy with orders that I felt that creative burn out! It was hard to try to find my bursts of creative energy. For 2012, I intend to focus on being more creative, developing new things and making sure to [...]

Baking makes for great food props...
I've been busy in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes that I've had my eye on of late. Between Tastespotting.com and Foodgawker.com, I'm in heaven. :) At any rate, as I mentioned before, baking is like relaxation therapy for me. Most of the goodies I make, I have been sharing with friends and family. I think all my friends on Facebook hate seeing my delicious [...]

She wanted a blush pink anemone ring pillow and a matching boutonniere. I decided to use ivory velvet vintage leaves to ac[...]
