For You I Am Thankful

DIY Paper Wedding Bouquet and Matching Flower Girl Barrettes- Cricut Design Space Star Challenge

DIY Paper Wedding Bouquet and Matching Flower Girl Barrettes- Cricut Design Space Star Challenge

I have to try making this on my Cricut Explore for my Wedding! DIY Paper Bridal Bouquet and Matching Flower Girl BarrettesI love weddings. There is something so magical about witnessing two people committing to each other for the rest of their lives and celebrating their love. As much as I love weddings, I don’t like attending weddings as a guest. I have some weird, social phobias and I much prefer attending weddings when I have a task. I’d much rather be put to work and have a job during a wedding than sitting…

Ruffle Skirt American Girl Doll Dress Sewing Project Perfect For Beginners. I love this pattern because it can be adjusted for any size doll.

I’ve been busy, busy, busy getting my new business up and off the ground running. I’m absolutely loving what I’m doing everyday (I think I may just be the best boss that I’ve ever had…) but last week at one point I hit a mental wall. I sat myself down, thought about what was going on in my head and realized… I hadn’t physically created something with my hands for awhile. I decided to take the…
