Bridesmaid Boxes!

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to show you the boxes/gifts that I put together to ask my bridesmaids/maid of honour if they would be in our wedding. It was super easy and I loved how they turned out!

I picked out some succulents from my local greenhouse, bought some small pots to re-pot them, got some gold spray paint (now I want to spray paint EVERYTHING GOLD!), found some wooden boxes at the dollar store (that was probably the hardest part, finding what to put them in!) and picked up some treats for inside.  The cards that I used were from Happy Life Printables and I was so happy with them. I especially loved that they had the Canadian spelling for the maid of honour card!  Haha. I decided to go to the hardware store and pick up some paint chips in the colours that I would like the dresses to be.  Super easy to do and now when they go to pick out their dresses they can bring it with them and help find the colour!

WHOA. I'm back!

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you... I'm BACK!

Let's see what has happened since I last blogged regularly. My sister moved to England for two years, I went and visited her three times (and went to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and AH IT WAS SO AMAZING!), my contract at work ended but now I'm back full time and PERMANENT (woo!), I read a ton of books, crocheted & knit a bunch of things (along with doing some craft shows and selling lots locally), met some amazing new people... Oh, and Keith & I got ENGAGED!  

We got engaged May 12th, 2015 and our wedding is June 3rd, 2017!  Ahhh, I can't wait!  I've been in wedding planning mode for the last little while and I want to share everything on my blog.  That was kind of the kick to get me to start blogging again. Keith & I were supposed to do our engagement photos today, but the weather had other ideas... so we rescheduled for next Tuesday.  I'm SO pumped for Sara Monika to be our photographer - I'm pretty much obsessed with every single photo she posts.  

So, I just wanted to do a quick post & say I'M BACK!  Woo!  I'll be back soon with the bridesmaid boxes/gifts that I made!
