Hi blog friends!
I have not blogged in awhile, I know. Last week was a busy one for me with Thanksgiving. We had family over so I was helping my Mom get organized for that and then busy spending time with my family while they were here. I also had work (I was forced to venture out on Black Friday against my wishes) and have been juggling that with DIYs and little photoshoots since last Thursday. And to top it all off, it's December now...Wow! For these next few days I am really swamped with a project deadline (something crafty that will be revealed shortly) but I have some great ideas for December posts that include crafty projects and inspiration. So sit tight and stay tuned for those starting next week. I intend to start decorating for Christmas next week, as well as designing our holiday cards, and those are definitely things that will be highlighted here.
But today I want to focus on a new collaboration that has me super excited! Last week the new The Knotty Bride blog went live (it's beautiful...check it out!) and this week Alison announced that I will be a regular guest blogger, showcasing some super fabulous DIYs. My first project was posted on Tuesday and I must say it was an amazing feeling to see my photographs as part of the TKB. I cannot thank Alison enough for having me and trusting me with her DIY posts. A few months ago on Twitter, Alison had asked for people wanting to contribute DIY projects. I contacted her, assuming she wanted a project or two, which I was happy to provide. I was floored when she asked if I wanted to contribute regularly and even now, after the first DIY has gone live, I'm still pretty speechless. I received so much great support on Tuesday. Each and every comment and tweet meant so much to me so thank you everyone for the kind words!
I am a big lover of the silhouette trend and that was my inspiration for this first TKB project. Here are some sneak peeks of what I created, styled, and photographed:
Head over to The Knotty Bride to see the full post with all the pictures and the tutorial here. And yes, the first picture is of me. I didn't like having to be the model but my options were limited and I just had to 'make it work.'
I am still contributing regularly to Emmaline Bride so now you can find my projects in two places! I am honored to be a part of both the EB and TKB teams and am so excited to craft more goodness for their readers. Check out the new DIY section over at Emmaline Bride for easy access to my projects and a picture of my smiling face.
Happy Thursday everyone!
