Making // 2017


2017 was the year of making for me - I made more than ever before, I made things to wear, to eat, to hold, to gift, and to cherish. As a wrap up of this fantastic year I wanted to share a portfolio of sorts. I am more and more finding myself straying away from platforms such as Instagram and Facebook because at best those products file and list me alongside all my friends or at worst bury me under products and ads and I must fight to be seen. My blog is increasingly a place where I find comfort in it being my own. Here in this space I have a agency to share what I find important and to know that should people want to know what I am thinking, feeling, as well as what is happening in my life this space should hold that information. So, what better place to post about my products and achievements. 
The best thing I made all year was my wedding - I debated weather to include this in a "#memade" category but I think I can confidently include it. If you missed my full wedding post back in April take a trip over there now to see the full scope of what we did ourselves, what we did to save money, and what we completely scraped in lieu of saving money for more important things. One element from my wedding that I feel is fully justified to share is the flowers - all completely done by myself and my fantastic bridesmaids. 



Meagan, Joslyn, Callie, and Lisa all made their own bouquets too!
