Happy Birthday My Love!

Today is my wonderful husband's birthday. We'll be spending the beginning of the day hiking out in the mountains, and then finishing off with a nice dinner by our house. I'm so grateful for the loving, comical, and sexy man he is- and cannot wait to celebrate his birthday today.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday!

New Ventures, New Items, and a Magazine Shoot!

So many exciting things have been going on over at Silver Pencils lately! I'm currently working on a very large bridal party order- making my first bouts and corsages has been so invigorating and fun.

I also recently loaned out my new pieces below for a Bridal Magazine Shoot! I can't go into the details just yet- but I'll be relaying more information as soon as I can.

Bob's Your Uncle

Besides having absolutely fantastic greeting cards (Just picked up one of theirs for my husband's birthday)- Bob's Your Uncle also has unique and quirky office and paper products that I love.

Bring your host wine in this bag and they won't even care what's inside... And as someone who makes a list for everything, this notepad is perfect for me.


They're greeting cards are unfortunately not available online, but check out their website to find a carrier near you.

Meet Hannah...

Isn't Hannah lovely?! I love this photo of her looking outside.

Hannah found my shop online and delegated the ordering to her sister Holly. Brides to Be take note: delegation is key to reducing the stress of wedding planning.

Hannah was one of the first brides who asked me to accessorize her entire bridal party. She chose the Grace peony for herself, 3 A Little Grace peonies for her bridesmaids and 1 slightly smaller A Little Grace headband for her flower girl.

Hannah's sister Holly told me that the flower girl loved her headband so much that she wore it to school the entire week after the wedding- if that doesn't make a girls day what will? I was smiling all day.
Thanks so much Hannah and Holly for being so wonderful! And Hannah you look absolutely gorgeous in all of these photos!

Meet Amy

Gah! I love these pictures of Amy and her husband at their May wedding in Dayton, Ohio. Amy looks absolutely stunning in her wedding gown and her husband looks so handsome in his uniform.

Amy is an 8th grade school teacher where they live in Texas and, her now husband, is a T- 6 instructor pilot. I love how he's looking at her here Amy is one of the wonderful brides I've met through Etsy. She purchased the A Little Grace hair flower out of my shop earlier this year and then was kind enough to send me photos from her big day.Thanks so much for sharing your photos Amy! I wish you and your new husband all the best!

Out and About...

Sorry for the unexcused absence last week- with the 4th of July holiday, the two jobs, and my best friend visiting from out of town- I just couldn't' find the time to keep up on blogging as well.

But although the week was incredibly busy, it was also incredibly fun. Every day was jam packed with activities from start to finish- we ate, shopped, white water rafted, and did lots and lots of hiking.

Cascade Canyon is one of the gorgeous places we went to hike...We ran into 4 moose on our trek and had great weather the entire time. The next day it rained so we picked a good day to go out.Here I am enjoying the sunshine...After my friend left, Danny and I did some hiking of our own- but closer to home.Since Danny's in way better shape, he was pretty much this far ahead of me the entire time. I used the excuse that I was taking pictures... but really I just needed a breather :)

So now it's back to work.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
