Bridesmaid dress


So for me, ordering a bridesmaid dress when I was completely pregnant, to wear 8 weeks after I had a baby seemed like a scary thing. Soooo I just made my dress!!  Here are a few shots of my bridesmaid dress I designed and made to stand with my dear friend Marcy as she said her nuptials. 
And of course a great shot of my handsome hubby!

And me with some of the classiest of friends :)

Here's what I have been up to lately.


The last 6 months I haven't posted much because it has been busy. Brandon and I bought a new home and quickly started updating a few parts of the house. We got a new roof, new gutters, new bathroom downstairs, changed some electrical, a few new fixtures, all new concrete, a few landscaping needs and lots of decorating. I think the decorating will be an on going project. Here are a few snap shots of what we have done so far.

Custom Summer Wedding Dress

As many of you know, I LOVE making wedding dresses, and custom dresses at that. I was hired by a wonderful lady to make a wedding dress for a summer outdoor wedding. We had fun going to the fabric store together and watching her wedding dress come to life. Here is a snap shot of Lisa in her custom wedding dress. She was great to send me a picture quickly after her wedding ( it was just this last weekend!) Thank you Lisa for being such a great customer, and allowing me the pleasure of making your wedding dress.




Fun Summertime Aprons!

A towel as part of an apron is super! How many times do you want to dry your hands when you're cooking? Well,  I do at least!

Every once in a while~

....I make a dress for me. This was a dress I was determined to make and wear!

My handsome husband, I just had to show him off!!

Camera time !

My husband and I got a "nice" camera a while back and Lisa (my sister-n-law) and I took a class to learn a little more about our cameras. This is a great thing to do to help you take good photos. No matter what you shoot....taking pictures of family, things you love, things you create, people you love, activities you like to participate in...ect. This picture of me was taken by Lisa. I thought it was an awesome picture and wanted to show of her skills!!! Great pic Lisa.

Anna's Dress




This was a fun "Vintage Look" dress made just for Anna Roberts. She had a few places that she wanted to wear a pretty dress. Thanks Anna for letting me make you a beautiful dress!
