Etsy Treasuries

Here are a etsy few treasuries from the last few months that my jewelry and my Custom Boutonnieres (and my husband!) appeared in. The last one, I made for featuring Etsy Austin Craft Riot artists, but didn't get a chance to share at the time. Enjoy!

Rich, Red and a little Rustic

Wedding on the brain

Pinterest & DIY

Are any of you as obsessed with Pinterest as I am?

I am loving the fact, I can save DIY tutorials and inspiration for later, and it's perfect for me since I am a very visually minded person. I've started inspiration boards for DIY & crafts, for inspiration for custom wedding party jewelry designs, inspired weddings for my Nostalgia Film blog, photography, things I covet, other random design & inspiration, and more (food, travel, etc.). Here are some of my favorite DIY projects I am saving for a rainy day (though it may be a while since there's a major drought in Texas!):

Follow Me on Pinterest

Also, unrelated, The Frisky (a site I love and freelanced for) is having Get a Hobby Week and asking: Readers, Tell Us About Your Hobbies!

New Designs

I will be working on a slew of new things this weekend for the site and for Lovely Austin. If you're local, stop by Lovely Austin: they have many pairs of my rose stud earrings for just $10 and new brass bobby pin sets for just $12. Both make great gifts!

I also have some special new items up in the shop that are particularly dear to me--a one-of-a-kind necklace made with an estate brooch that would be perfect for a bridal look, and a very long locket, that has the perfect combination of brass components and pearls...

Other News

I recently participated in a wedding show for my other business with my husband, Nostalgia Film. I went about preparing for a wedding show, much like a craft show and sewed a custom table runner and three sets of bunting to match our business colors, which inspired me to add custom bunting back to my etsy shop!

My handsome husband
So, drop me a line below, and let me know what's new? What have you been making? What events are you going to?

Happy weekend,
