A few things I {and others} have created recently.

Katelyn's birthday gift.

Mother's Day card and envelope for my mom

Mother's Day card for my big sissy 

My dad's birthday card
{ignore the chocolate smudges on the front :)}

I framed our vows for Kyle as a 1 year anniversary gift.
It will be a part of the "frame wall" I'm in the process of creating.

Kyle's herbs, waiting to be moved into a larger herb garden.

Dad's Father's Day card. 
{can't find the tutorial I used, but there are TONS of them out there}

this was hard to photograph because of the glare..
Father's Day gift for Kyle's desk.
{Ezra's hand print was impossible to get, so I used his foot}

And Kyle's Father's Day and Anniversary card.

 Hair clip for Cambria. Inspired by these.

 Flowers from the garden for Kyle's Mema.

Adorable onsie and shirt sent from Ezra's friend Seeley
The first one says "home grown" LOVE it!!
 Beautiful crocheted blankets created by my Aunt Cindy.
The white one is a wedding gift and the colorful ones are for Cambria and Ezra.
I was SO thankful for these handmade, one-of a kind blankets. 

 Found this old shutter at that huge antique store in NY.. now it will hang on our wall and hold our cards and notes!
{can't decide if I want to keep the original, authentic color or paint it..}
Creating things brings me such joy!
"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."


  1. I love the idea of the shutter! You're so creative Brandie! I love seeing all the things you make and I love reading your blog! =)

  2. I did the same thing with my shutters! It looks good. I haven't blogged about it yet though. Cute creations!

  3. i love the blankets. so beautiful.

    i love the authentic color of the shutter actually. even though it's black and some people prefer a dark brown or lighter brown color. i think it looks amazing.
