3 posts in one! A sweet award, more frames and wedding pics!


Hey Guys! I can't believe it's been a week since I've posted!! Last week just flew by, I think part of it was getting ready for my brother-in-law's wedding in Eureka Springs. I did the flowers, everything turned out great and it was a beautiful day. I have pictures at the bottom of this post.
I also recieved a special award from Kim at http://kimsdomesticbliss.blogspot.com/ and Connie at http://mythoughtsandcreations.blogspot.com/ Thank you guys I really appreciate it!

The description for this award is: “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.” Also put a link to their blogs and then let them know they have been selected.

I consider each one of you my friend and cannot think of anyone who has not already recieved this award, but if you haven't please take it!!

****************************


I've been making more frames, come take a look. These will all be listed in my Etsy Store. Remember the initial frames can be done in any letter.


I would be happy to make a baby boy frame with the carriage too. The picture in the frame is one of my friend's twins. I posted their room a while back before they were born. They are both beautiful!

I can also do this frame in different ribbons. The cross is really sparkly! That's my grandma, dad and two uncles in the picture.

A great gift for a friend that decorates with the blues and yellows! This one is very detailed.

This one would be cute in a little girl's room or bathroom. I just fell in love with the little purses!
Cupcakes for the kitchen! I posted this one a while back without the bow. The ribbon really adds to it!


I'm still having so much fun with these! Remember, if it's possible, I can custom make one of your choice. I still have lots to make! I will be posting some spring ones in the next few days.

************************
We went to my brother-in-law's wedding at the cresent hotel in Eureka Springs yesterday. It turned out to be a beautiful day so I wanted to show you some pictures. They say this hotel is haunted and has even been on Ghost Hunters. LOL!



Does anyone see a ghost in here?? I sure don't!

Chase was the ringbearer and could not wait to put on that tux!

This is Melanie, my new sister-in-law. She's really sweet and looked so pretty! I did her flowers, her colors were yellow and brown. I used silk since the wedding was out of town but I tried to make them look as real as possible.

Chase and I

Handsome Chase

Silly Chase

GQ Chase....lol!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures, I will have another post soon including some givaways!!!! More info. on that soon!!

The flowers you did for the wedding were beautiful! What a great weekend for the wedding. I think Eureka is such a fun place. From where we live it is just over an hour drive.

Lori said...

You have been a busy girl... Chase sure is a cutie..
I'm waiting on getting a frame until our beach place is finished. we are painting and getting ready to decorate. i can't wait to decorate that is when the fun will began. I was thinking of a frame for the beach, but I am going to wait until we get our furniture. I will have to post some pictures when all is done for everyone to see.
I hope this week is a bit calmer for you.

Lori said...

I meant to say begin. Crazy me...

Nancy said...

Hi Kristen, Loooove the frames!!!!
I understand about busy lives! I am having one this week and I don't think I will be around as much for the next few days!
Hope you have a wonderful day! Blessings, Nancy

Chase is quite handsome! I hope you had a great time at the wedding! The frames are precious...especially the baby!

Bo said...

Hi Kristen...oh that Chase is already a "hottie"...he looked like a movie star, but so did you! Your SIL is pretty, but hey...
where is your brother the groom? The bouquet looked amazing & so do your new frames...what a talent you've got! ;-) Bo

Tracy said...

Chase is looking sharp!
The flowers are beautiful. We just went through all the 'flower making' in August when my son got married. It is a lot of work!
Everything is gorgeous Kristen.

Hi Kristen, Thanks for coming by and checking out my light post. I always appreciate your visits.

It sure looked like a beautiful wedding.
Chase looked like a living doll in his tux.

It looks like I will need a baby carraige frame from you fairly soon! My sister Michele just announced her second pregancy due in October.

Have a great week.
~Melissa :)

Hi Kristen - Your Chase is so handsome in his tux and he did look all GQ'd out and you looked so pretty with him.

Your frames are so pretty - I can't decide which one to go for and can never make up my mind!!

Linda said...

Love your frames. I can't pick a favorite. I visit here often. You are so talented! You also did a great job with the flowers for the wedding. The bride chose some great colors.
Blessings,
Linda

Miss Janice said...

Loved the flowers at the wedding and I love the new header photo you have.

Shelia said...

Morning, Kristen! Oh, what beautiful frames you make! Love 'em! The wedding looks so nice and the flowers you made are so lovely!
What a cute little son you have! He's adorable. Maybe you should tell him that, though. I don't think at his age he wants to be called adorable.
Thanks for the visit,
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Tomarie said...

Oh my goodness! I was in Eureka Springs just two summers ago and fell in love with it! We took the tour of the Crescent but didn't stay there...waaaah! :-)
The wedding looked beautiful! I LOVE your pictures! I'll be talking to you about those! Me gotta have one! :-) Laura

Linda said...

Hi Kristen,
Good job Chase! Don't little men look so cute dressed up in tuxes.
My son walked me down the isle when I married his step Dad. It was so special. Fun to see what you have been making and up to!
Linda

Jo said...

The flowers for the wedding are beautiful and your son is very handsome ~ love the picture of the two of you together.

Kristen,

I know I don't comment often but I wanted to tell you what a wonderful blog you have. It's very inspiring and easy on the eyes. I especially like the new bunny header. Maybe I'll try to make something similar for my own home : )

LillyB said...

Hello! I love your bows they are so beautiful!! The pictures of your son are precious! Don't blink or he will grow up!! It happened to me, my baby boy is 26 years old...only yesterday he was skateboarding down dead man's hill (shaking my head)
The flowers and the bride were beautiful!!
Have a blessed day!
