Friday Features - Fall Outdoor Wedding

This weekend we will be attending our forth and final wedding of the year. It's going to be such a beautiful event as it is outdoors and lakeside! The colors and scenery will be so pretty! I've put together a few of my favorite Etsy finds that would go well with this event. Enjoy :)

Super Hero Cuff Links & Wonder Woman Necklace

As I mentioned last month, I'm working on adding more super hero cuff links to my shop. They remain one of the most popular cuff links and I get custom requests for different heroes quite often. Last time I posted, I realized that I had forgotten to photograph a couple of sets and in the meantime, I've gotten a couple more new items ready as well :)

(I thought it would be cute for the groom to wear Batman and the best man to wear Robin)

And last time I blogged about these, Sarah of Magnolia Surprise mentioned that I should add some Wonder Woman items as there is a new movie coming out. I thought this necklace was the perfect addition. What better piece of jewelry to wear on those days when you need a little motivation to be extra wonderful and feel a little powerful :)
I thought I had a pair of earrings made too, but realized I'd put those in my personal stash :) I'll see how the necklace does and might have to make some more for the shop.

What have you been adding to your shop lately?

Friday Features - Tribal

Gosh, it's been a while since I've done a Friday Features post. I guess summer was busier than I thought!
But I love today's theme! I've always been a fan of feathers and arrows and I'm loving all the tribal prints and designs that are so popular right now. (I need to find a way to work them into my own work!)
I loved window shopping so much this time, that I actually bought one of these items! I love that tshirt so much I had to make it mine in a color called Tri Lime. I can't wait to receive it!

Homegrown ~ Home cooked ~ Homemade

Now this is what I call a meal!
Homegrown sweet corn from a friend. Fish caught by my dad and I. And fresh tomatoes from our own garden.

Wedding Invitation Recreation

Once in a while I get a request to recreate a couple's wedding invitation onto wood. Not everyone wants a wooden invitation to send out, but they do make a very nice keepsake for after the event.

I was recently asked to make one such invitation and loved how it turned out! I love the original design and loved how close I was able to get the recreation.

I start by matching the fonts either exactly or as closely as I can. Then I look for images that match the invitation. Or try to use the exact image from the original invitation from a scan or photograph. In this case, I had the perfect seahorse image already on file. All it needed was a few alterations and the invitation came together beautifully.

This request came directly from the bride and groom, but I've also made these as wedding gifts as well. Now that's something you can guarantee the couple won't get 2 of :)
