Design your own dress

I have been wanting to do a comfy cotton dressy dress collection for a while now. Recently,  I was contacted by a friend of a friend asking if I would do her flower girl dresses for her wedding. She was looking for exactly what I had been envisioning and I couldn't wait to finally get started!

Right now there are 2 styles, either flowers cascading down across the front and a solid sash, or the 3 rows of ruffles and a flower sash. The wonderful thing about these is they are comfy!! No itchy fabric here, just cotton. and  they are totally customizable...

1. Pick your style
2. Pick your flower type: rose, wild flower, poppy, or "mixed bouquet"
3. Pick your color

Stay tuned for them to be added to the shop :)

Let the Wild Rumpus Start!

Last weekend we celebrated my own little wild thing's 3rd Birthday. Grace totally came up with the theme a few months ago, and while I admit I was shocked at the idea at first, I quickly fell in love with it. We both had a lot of fun getting it all ready, and it reminded me how much of a classic the story truly is (and not only because I ordered 6 copies of the book from ebay to cut up and make decorations out of and would have to read them all, one after another to her before bed. :) Most of the things we used were either from the books or from awesome fellow etsy sellers...

Clockwise from top left corner: fondant cake toppers from http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLilDetails, pinwheel, paper characters, story book on a clothesline all from recycled books, the adorable tiny crown clip from http://www.etsy.com/shop/Dariami, bottle cap precut images that I strung on yarn from http://www.etsy.com/shop/zwillinge97, paper straws to go into the mason jar tumblers from http://www.etsy.com/shop/MakingMemoriesFun, and eco-friendly utensils with quotes from the book from http://www.etsy.com/shop/SucreandSpice

It really was handmade from the heart. I feel like in a world full of mass produced, sometimes a little "handmade" can put things in perspective and be inspiring. ;)
