Our Engagement Story, In Form Of A Comic Book

I finally have permission from my darling husband to share this with the world. He clearly worked many hours hand drawing every picture, scanning it in, adding color and writing the story. He would wake up and get out of bed after I fell asleep to work on it all night. I had absolutely no idea. 

Happy 3rd anniversary to my Main Squeeze. 
I love doing life with you.

Spotlight: Handmade Shops

I've recently become overly obsessed with handmade items. I really want to support my fellow crafters since I know all too well how much effort, love, and time goes into every item they make. I usually find new shops through Instagram and then stalk the crap out of them because I'm just so in love. I don't always pull the trigger on purchases, but with these three shops I did. And I don't regret it one bit.

I've been eyeing these homemade crowns for a couple of weeks now. I won an Instagram bid for a few of them and they'll be here any day. I couldn't be more excited. What am I going to do with them? I'm thinking: dress up my dogs, put them in my craft room as decoration, take pictures of my niece wearing them, set them out as Christmas decor, or just save them for when I have kids. We'll see. I'm really excited to see how these look in person. 
I came across this Instagram account and literally spent an hour looking at every single picture she has ever posted. I love her style and wish everything I owned was as girly as she is. I purchased this hanger a couple of weeks ago and absolutely adore it. It is hanging above a pink chair in my craft room. Next step is deciding on which one of her adorable prints I'm going to purchase to hang on it. 
I don't remember how, but I somehow stumbled across this Etsy store. I'm the type of person who wears scarves in 90 degree weather. My favorite outfit consists of a t-shirt, scarf and jeans. I have about thirty too many scarves already, so I figured one more wouldn't hurt. LOOK AT HOW CUTE THIS IS!!! I'm obsessed with all things Pug, so there's no way I could pass this up. My ideal outfit with this scarf is a long sleeve chambray with dark jeans and tall brown boots. I haven't been able to wear that outfit yet considering it's the middle of summer, but I definitely think about it every morning. 

Please make sure to click on the links above in pink and go show these ladies some love!

P.S. I'm not getting paid or given any free product for this post. I just really love supporting small businesses :)

Wedding Tip: Don't forget the ring.

I have a not-so-secret and a funny story to tell you. There's something wrong with the picture below, can you spot it?
How about now? 
Ok, I'll tell you... 

Creative ways to give money to your graduate.

This past weekend we travelled to beautiful Fresno, California to watch my cousin graduate from Fresno State. It was a very quick trip and so hot that I finally broke in my new J. Crew shorts. We got to visit with my aunts and uncle from San Luis Obispo as well, so overall, it was a great trip!
The week leading up to this event led me on a "pinning" frenzy of all things graduate related. Although I ended up not crafting anything creative for my cousin [because I've been really lazy lately], I came across some great ways to creatively give money to graduates. 

A perfect white photo background that you already own.

I have a secret to admit. I'm all about white on white on white. Whenever possible, my goal is to get pure white backgrounds in my pictures. I love how a bright subjects stand out against it. I wish I had a big bright white room where all my pictures were taken [like Becki from Whippy Cake], but since I don't, I had to find a new solution. 

What is the one, bright white item that all of us have access to?
