Etsy Love: Pretty Ceramics

I’ve been making a small succulent garden in the corners of my kitchen nook. It’s been so fun finding homes for all my plants and adding details to the space. I’m especially interested in using different kinds of ceramics as planters. I’ve already thrifted a few (soo happy!) but I’m so tempted to just buy some of these handmade beauties.

Something Floral, Something New

I worked on a little something for a good friend of mine. She’s the maid of honor in an upcoming wedding and wanted to give a personal piece to the bride-to-be. I only had about a day to work on this, so I kinda gave myself creative-reign! It may not have been exactly what she was asking for, but hey, if it’s free and I have a super quick deadline, I’m pretty sure that means I get to do whatever I want, right?

And I really like it!

This is the original bouquet pattern I made. I think it would make super sweet gift wrap or something.

Lately

It’s been so quiet on here, eek.

I’ve been really enjoying my new job. Not only is it just a wonderful work environment, but it’s also allowed me to learn so much about wholesale and product-based branding. I feel very right-time/right-place, right now.

Here’s a few snaps of what’s been going on here:

Roos and I finally took the plunge and bought a fancy epson printer! I love it! I can’t wait to stock-up on beautiful printing paper. // I got my flower crown pug and teacups screen printed by the amazing ALL GOLD // My job is the best!! Thank you ZELMA ROSE for packaging my cross-stitch heart necklace SO beautifully (and thank you Kehau for the dreamy-lit photo!) // I played with a lot of crystal/geode pattern ideas. I’m sure we’ll see more of these… // I’m embroidering beautiful sounding words onto watercolor paper. Super excited about this, but it’s pretty slow. This is a snippet of the word “Susurrus” // A tiny fair I did at the end of March. Looking at my fellow crafty girls, GREEN HORSE CRAFT and FIBER FLORIST, I need to step up my table decoration! // Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

Etsy love: Spring Dream

April is here! Considering my rampant love for everything floral, Spring is totally my season! Here’s some lovely spring things I’ve found while perusing etsy lately:

This sweet painting is the prettiest /// I need vintage botanical prints everywhere please!

Valentine Mantle

Time for another holiday mantle! This one was done a bit under the wire, but Valentine’s in my favorite holiday so it’ll definitely stay up at least through March.IMG_0060

I had gold up everywhere from New Years Eve, and figured I could keep a little of the gold and add whatever spare pink toned paintings I had lying around. The big one in the center is my roommates. She left it when she moved out and I just think it’s too pretty to not display. The rest are mine, various valentine cards, and just some pretty little things.
