how does your garden grow

It is like magic watching a garden grow. One day, its a tiny little plant. And then you look again, its two feet taller or growing food. Ah-mazing.

I’ve been fondly scrolling through garden photos from 2 weeks ago, and seeing how much they have grown. I can only imagine what I will be like when I have a real baby.

There are a couple new notebooks in the shop to keep track of garden progress, planting plans, or grocery lists!

one month

I am going to marry my one true love in one month. So I thought I would share some glamour shots of our wedding invitations today. I didn’t want to forget what they looked like, and how much work I put into them.

The invite is an embroidered design, and then I hand lettered them all. (I know.) The RSVP card is attached to a recipe card, and guests were asked to send back a favorite recipe with their response. I love my ma’s collection of hand written recipes, so I thought this would be a fun way to start our own collection. I also am really pleased with my stamp choices, and how they turned out in general. One of my best craft projects ever.

embroidered invitations

I am having a hard time finding invitations that I truly love. Maybe I am being picky. I think I have a general idea that is in my mind somewhere, and I can’t seem to find something that fits that idea.

I found these AMAZING invites from Rifle Paper Co the other day. They are custom, so you can’t buy them, but I really love the idea of them. Is hand embroidering 51 paper invitations crazy? Yes, it is. But it would be crazy awesome….
