Elisabeth and I have had so much popularity with her Americana Wreath. We’ve blogged about it here, are selling it on Etsy and have even taught craft classes teaching people how to make it. Her use of burlap and ruffles to make the American Flag inspired me to recreate the Texas flag using the same technique. Here are some step by step pictures and instructions to tell you exactly how to make this fun, rustic, Texas wreath.
Today is my third wedding anniversary and the gift theme is leather! Not wanting to be cliche about expensive and meaningless gifts I thought it would be fun to stay with the traditional wedding gift themes that were handmade or custom ordered. I’m sharing my year one gift with y’all! The traditional first anniversary gift theme is paper, I searched high and low for the best idea for a thoughtful gift to give to my husband that was’t too feminine or cheesy. I decided on maps cut into hearts of the places ‘We met, He proposed, & We Married.’ Travis and I met at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, he proposed to me in Riviera Maya, Mexico and we got married in Lucea, Jamaica! The ability to use three completely different maps is what really drew me to this project.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my friend, Adriana’s, bachelorette party. Let me tell you, we had a blast despite the unusual May rain we were experiencing in Texas. Adriana chose to have her bachelorette party floating the river outside of San Marcos, in Texas hill country. We stayed for two nights at some great cabins, Hideout on the Horseshoe, on the Guadalupe River. The best part about these cabins is you can stay and float which means your tubes to float are included and you can get off right in front of the cabins! I wanted to not only share our fun trip, but the crafts some of us made for Adriana and the girls attending.
