Custom Wedding Ideas, my Specialty!
It took me a while to find the love of my
life. Nicholas is my cheerleader, my personal chef and my stand up, in
home comic when I need a giggle. He also challenges me to be my best
self and did you know that it was with his encouragement that I started
He planned ALL the details of our wedding
while I was busy knit-knit-knitting; all I had to do was show up for the
second happiest day of my life (the happiest was when he proposed)!

Our wedding meant so much to us and that is why it touches my heart to be asked to make anything wedding related, such as a custom throw blanket
in the bride and groom's wedding or home colors, such as the this
surprise gift for Chris' daughter to go with a personalized, engraved
Or this stunning beauty (orange is my favorite color!!!): An extra wide shawl wrap
for Sherry to wear during her fall vows (her gown is ivory with bronze
"fall leaf" colored trim and she'll be wearing fall jewel toned flowers
in her hair)!!!!!!!! I simply did not use enough exclamation points to
fully describe my happiness, lol:
After Sherry placed her
order, I sent her yarn samples in the mail of various "safe" colors
along with what I really wanted her to use, which was daring ORANGE with
other fall jewel tones such as purple and green! ;)
I did a happy dance when I received her note:
"Well I was sure I was going to do the typical boring light ivory to match my dress with just a hint of color. So not me at all.
saw the color samples in those beautiful rich colors. I can't help
myself I have to go with the rustic fall wow. This means (no pressure)
that your creation will be the focal draw of my big day outfit. I am
very excited with the colors and your skills and... IT'S ORANGE!
I can't stop smiling. I know this shawl is going to be amazing and absolutely reflect my inner self. YEAH!!!"
To me, that's what it's
all about; creating something that will be special, unique and reflect
the personality and preferences of the bride and groom. A huge sigh of
gratitude from me to all who have entrusted me to help bring to life a
once-in-a-lifetime wedding gift or accessory.
