A Christmas Bazaar is near...

Last year at the salon, we held our first annual Christmas Bazaar. There were tons of crafts, refreshments, and fun fellowship.
We are coming near to our second one being held this Saturday and boy is getting crunch time!!
I have been working on crafts nonstop EVERY night for I don't know how long.

Here are a few of the items that I have made the past few weeks and there may be a few more to come! I had every intention of getting y'all the Santa tutorial and it may still be here for tomorrow or Saturday but between work and getting things prepared for Saturday it hasn't happened.
I am sooo sorry and I promise I will try my best to get it out tomorrow or Saturday!






Have a great night y'all!

Happy 2 Year Anniversary to the One Whom My Soul Loves

Time flies when you are having fun! 
We certainly cannot complain about this past year.. I promise it seems it only continues to get better and better. Sure we have our moments but what is important is that we have learned and GROWN from those hard times. God has certainly blessed us and I pray for His continuing guidance and covering over our marriage.


Get ready for picture overload! 
I even took a few out because I thought it was too much. Ha. I wasn't quite sure this session was going to happen this weekend as planned but YAY it did! My longtime friend Stacey (introduction post coming) has picked up photography as a hobby and I am SO beyond THRILLED with how these turned out. They captured everything I pictured and wanted and more!













Shane, thank you so much for all the wonderful memories this past year.. TWO down and many more to come.. WHOO HOO! Thank you so much for all the fun, laughter, and love that you give. I look forward to many more precious moments and what God has in store for us!
I love you to infinity and back!

oh hey FRIDAY // 5 on Friday // Farm Life & Santa Clauses

Happy Friday friends! 
Random things going on this week from work to crafting to getting ready for our pictures Sunday to getting Coach's gift ready for our 2 Year Anniversary Monday.. TWO years! We have survived another year and I can say it only continues to get better. 
Busy weekend ahead and I am still DYING to get our Christmas decorations going in our house.
So. Excited.


1.

The trees are turning BEAUTIFULLY in the pasture! Oh my goodness. The gold one in the back is my favorite popping out near the wedding site! We are taking our fall pictures Sunday so I hope the wind holds off so there will be some color left!


2.

Shane and his Dad have been working on the barn this past week. They have done such a great job on it!

I finished these last night! 
When I found them on Pinterest I was super bummed there wasn't a tutorial... BUT stop traffic! You'll be seeing one from me this week!


 Hope your weekend is awesome!

Fabric Garland Tutorial

Here it is! 
I had SOOOO much fun with Amber when we got together for a little garland making. We saw the idea at the Hoschton festival we all went to and she let me dig thru her scrap fabrics in her studio to make my very own! 
She made hers for her mantle and actually used lights as her twine. One of the fabrics she used was an old bridesmaid dress and it ended up being GORGEOUS! Word on the street is her tree is already up too. I can't WAIT to see it!! 

Well let's get started!

You will need:

fabric of your choice
scissors or handle rotary cutter
cutting board
twine
iron (if fabric needs to be smoothed)

1. 

Start out by cutting your fabric into 9x2 strips. 
I started out with the scissors but soon changed to the rotary because its faster and easier. Amber is a pro-fess-ion-al with that tool. 
Just a warning you will cut and cut and cut and when you feel like you are finished I suggest to cut a little more.

2. 

I tied a knot at the end of the twine to make sure my fabric didn't slide off..

And then I just started tying and tying and tying. Some were double knotted and some were single... like the corduroy because it was super thick so most of that fabric was a single knot.

Tie the end of the twine when you reach your desired length and enjoy your garland!

Amber pointed out that I'll be able to use mine for not only Christmas but July 4th and more!
YAY!
