It’s been a while!

Hello!

Gosh it’s been a while! I haven’t been crafting as often. I’ve been experimenting with different hobbies. My recent and not so recent favorite is photography. My blog has remained focused on crafting, but I thought it would be fun to introduce some of my photos to the blog! & hopefully I’ll get back to sharing my crafting adventures soon!

For now, I’ve started an online photography course. I’m using a Canon Rebel T6. So far everything I’ve done has been self taught or with the advice of my close friend who is a professional photographer. I’m excited to see my progress!

The photo above was taken in my parents rose garden.

Souvenir Shadow Box

Hello!

I’ve been in search of a fun way to store and display some of my Disney Souvenirs. While shopping at Home Goods today I found the perfect shadow box to do just that. Initially I was going to place my pins on a burlap canvas, but I love this idea. I left my pins on my lanyard and was able to store my magic band as well.

Gift Set!

Hello!

Gifting can be tough! Below I’m featuring a gift set I assembled & it works great for all holidays & occasions!

I purchased the wooden crate from Michael’s & painted it using a rose gold spray paint. I also purchased a large mason jar to use for collecting corks. I added a wine chiller, wine glass, and a bottle of wine to finish off the gift set.

This is a great gift set option for any wine lover. It’s easy to cater this gift set to the recipient by using designs and colors they love!

Disney Bound!

Hello!

This weekend has been spent reminiscing my trip to Disney and planning my upcoming trip this spring!
