Carrie Beth's wedding!

This is their sign in table... it's a canvas with a bare tree on it and you "Leaf your thumb print" and sign it! It was seriously the cutest idea ever! :)

The doors that you enter into the barn at!

This is their picture table... I made the Carrie hearts Josh banner for them! :) Loved how it all came together!

The bride homemade all of the desserts and they were seriously to die for!!! Cake balls in two flavors... Strawberry cream cheese with white chocolate icing and Red Velvet cream cheese with chocolate icing, Texas sheet cake, lemon poppy seed muffins, lemon cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, and cheesecake!!!

This was their cutie cake!

White chocolate covered pretzel sticks, cookies, I didn't try those things on the tray but I believe they were little pecan pies, and then pumpkin whoopie pies and OMG those were insanely yummy!!!

Carrie is seriously sooo stinking talented and she just did a fabulous job on her wedding... If I could do mine over again I'd do it just like hers! That is if she didn't mind me copying it! :) I didn't grab pictures of the stage or the bridesmaids dresses but she made the dresses and refinished a dresser in robins egg blue for the stage in front of 3 or 4 old wooden doors! EEK I wish I could attend her wedding again! So stinking precious! I will try to snag some more pictures and post for ya'll later! :)

Wedding Shower and trip to the zoo!

Our weekend was EXTREMELY eventful! It was quite insane actually... Decorating for the shower on Friday till 2am... then waking up at 5:30am for the teen yard sale at church... leaving the yard sale early to get ready for the shower... wedding shower...then clean up! Sunday took a forever long nap in between church and then Monday we took Avery for her first trip to the zoo! She absolutely loved it! Her favorites were the monkeys and chickens! She kept yelling at the deer though, "HEY DEER"... we had a blast, it was a great family day! I cherish them! Here are some pictures from the weekend!
My very first towel cake ^ yay!

The gorgeous engaged couple! It's my brother in law Brandon and his fiance Hannah! Very excited to have her in our family VERY SOON! :)

I gave a short devotional for the shower! I'm really liking this whole speaking thing! It's fun!

Diaper Cake!

So a few weeks ago we held a baby shower for a girl in our church. She's super sweet and has been through a lot of hard times but seems to really be trying to get her life back on track! My mother in law, Tiffany and I worked really hard to make it perfect for her!

Sometimes I feel like there's no better way to show someone Christ's love than to spoil them rotten! he he! YES I know that this is not always the best option but sometimes it works! :)

Here are a few pictures from the shower... Baby Tayla Faye was born 2 weeks prior to the shower so she's also included! :)Dawn from Kiki La Ru sent this precious cake bunting to us as the sweetest gesture to show her support for this young mother as well! Not the greatest pictures BUT it looked precious!!! And as you'll see below I put the cake bunting on top of the diaper cake after I finished it at home just to add some height and if I had two of the buntings I totally would have left it! So ladies not only can you use Dawn's buntings for your edible cakes they are super presh on diaper cakes! :)

Here is the name banner I made for the shower and Tayla now has it in her bedroom at home for decoration! I sell these on my Etsy! Check them out!

My fellow crafter and dear friend Tiffany made 4 precious diaper cupcakes to go on cake stands in the center of each table! LOVE!

My very first diaper cake completed! ^

We had so much fun putting this all together and our next project is a wedding shower for my Brother in law and his fiance'! It's this Saturday so my goal will be to put up pictures sometime next week! Maybe sooner if ya'll get lucky! :) Woo hoo! I'm enjoying blogging again!

Great day!

Today started the first day of our mission's month! We had a church wide prayer breakfast to pray for all of our missionaries! :)

Afterwards Avery and I went with Sheldon's Mom and dad to Tampa for a consignment sale! Granny found out I was going to she snuck a few bucks into our account so I could get some Summer clothes for Ave :) she's precious! Really missing my family in Texas this past week... It's hard when you don't have plans for the next time you'll see each other. Airline prices sky rocketed for us over their spring break which is preventing us from neon able to plan something! Working on a few Orders this next week, trying to get some things done before Avery and I leave for Springfield for my dear friend Carrie's wedding :) hopefully I can post some pictures in the next few days of what I'm accomplishing! :) happy Sunday y'all! Hope each of you have a good church home you attend and are being fed regularly! If you need a good boost check out the Proverbs 31 Women's blog... I love love love their daily devotions! :)

Working hard!

 Well last time I posted I claimed that I was back to blogging and I apparently was lying lol :) 

I got pretty busy getting things accomplished for the Christmas Markets I was apart of and slacked off yet again... More recently I was preparing for a girl's conference I was asked to speak at in Louisville, Ohio! I had such a great time and it was truly an amazing experience to speak to that many girls! I am extremely passionate about total purity in girls lives so that session came naturally for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it! :) Here are a few pictures from the weekend!

In the coming weeks I will be posting pictures of some recent orders I've had!
