First order is away…

I’ve just finished and shipped my first custom etsy order. Oh man am I nervous for her to receive them and decide that they are everything she wanted.

I think they turned out great and am really happy with them. I made 5 Bridesmaids Bouquets, 1 Bridal Bouquet and 1 Toss Bouquet.

And the boutonnieres (I made 5 groomsman ones, missed one in this picture, and 1 for the groom that has the double flower)

Wooohoooo!!

I made my first etsy sale. It was a custom order for bouquets and boutonnieres. So I am working my little fanny off getting those done. But OH heaven. I am so flipping excited!

It took just about 100 views on that particular item to get the sale made. If I can pull just one order like this a month I will be soooo very satisfied. I got started on the roses last night and I have 20 done so far. Her colors are red, red w/white polka dots and white! I am just so excited to be able to make these for someone else after being so flipping happy with mine.

The beginning of the madness…

Productive Day

Today we started some seeds for the garden. We did them in egg crates. Hopefully that works well for us and becomes a new tradition. I turned the compost (having a bunny is really helping our compost move along a bit faster than it had before) and fought a battle with the icky grubs that are trying to make my garden boxes their breeding grounds, UGH! Lots of splattered grub guts on the concrete today.

I also finally decided that I will offer the same kinds of bouquets and bouts that I made for my wedding available for custom order in my etsy shop. A reminder of my awesome bouquet:
