my name is taylor and i am addicted to etsy
whew, that feels good to get that off my chest.
well now that i have taken the first step, it is time for me to show you why i love it so much...
I ordered custom cookie cutters from Forbes Farm Destash
i picked out some blue ball jar tags from Modern Scrapyard
I also snagged a couple of items for the wedding, including this hairclip from Bethany Lorelle. for the record, if you ever want to buy my a surprise gift, i would take ANY and EVERY item from this shop. so wonderful.
THE most adorable bowtie and suspenders from JB Kids
Through one of the other blogs i contribute to, The Pyrex Collective, I recently "met" quite the talented lady... ErinInk! I have always loved her blog entries on the collective, and that lead me to her ADORABLE etsy shop. And I could not resist ordering some magnets from her to brighten up my 'fridge! She is SO amazing, in fact, that she even included a 5 x 7 print of my favorite pattern Butterprint! Not only is she sweet, but she did her research.
i love monograms, i love kitchen things, and i love making stuff... so why not?
i started by spray painting a clear pitcher i picked up at a thrift store
for two whole months i have been nowhere to be found... but fret not, i have returned!
there is just too much to talk/blog/update about, so i will try to pick up where i left off and also include some details from all the exciting things going on, like, oh i dunno... getting MARRIED!!
if you read this blog (first of all, thank you SO much) please hang with me as i try to update this blog. i really have missed it so much.
where in the world has the time gone? we are officially 19 days away from the wedding!!! i couldn't be more excited/anxious/thrilled! that being said, i know you will understand why there has been zero blogging on my part lately, and why there will be next to no blogging until after the big day. but in the meantime, since wedding stuff is the ONLY thing on my mind lately, here's a little sneak peek at a wedding project.
i have been looking for a unique guest book for our wedding and after running into a lot of "roadblocks" i decided it would be easier, cheaper and more practical to use a photobook and let our guests sign that. This way we have a coffee table book that has messages from our loved ones from our special day.
i ordered it from one of my FAVORITE websites Paper Coterie! (they even sent an adorable freebie necklace)
i am the lucky winner of a giveaway from Erin Sunday and i had to show off the goods. erin takes some really great pictures... and i am the proud owner of FOUR of them!
remember the Mama Project? one of the amazing mothers, Priscilla, had a baby boy recently and i was invited to a baby shower for them! and let me tell you, he is the most precious little thing. i almost brought him home with us, but i'm sure his sweet mom would have noticed.
to celebrate this baby coming in to the world i made a diaper wreath
My dear friend Bethany is turning another year younger and she is a lover of theme parties (and let's be honest, who isn't) so she is throwing a beachy/seersucker birthday party. And i was so flattered that she asked me to help her put together the invitations and decor!
She had the cutest idea for invites
and i played off her great theme and put together a banner for the "party room"
one of my best friend's called me a few months ago (yes i'm just remembering to post this) and said "hey, i'll be in town tonight... can i stay at your place". i didn't even hesitate to say yes, but then i was faced with the dilemma of what to feed him. he had been driving all day and night and i knew he was hungry but i had nothing to feed him. haha
then my creativity kicked in. i had one cooked porkchop sitting in the fridge, and with about an hour to prepare i had time to whip up a batch of cornbread.
so in to the chopper it went.
a few days later i made a cinnabon cake and there are no words. just delicious pictures!
