Engaged






























I've been engaged this year... in more ways than one.  I started to steer away from the blog because of lack of interest.  It because more of a job than a hobby. I wanted to continue doing all the things I love without feeling stressed about having time to document them.  I also finally opened the etsy store that I've been wanting to open since before I started my blog.   I'm not planning on "closing" my blog and I'm not promising to keep updating it frequently.  Everything happens for a reason and if it's meant to be, it will be.  Just wanted to get all of that out there and to say that when I have something I really want to share I definitely will... like my engagement pictures. I'm SO excited about them!  One of my childhood friends took them, Nicole Bell from Nicole Bell Photography.  Check out her facebook page or CLICK HERE to check out her website.  She is fairly new to the industry and has a full time job in graphic design as well as another part time job but I think her work is better than some that have been doing it all there lives.  Not that I have to say any of this because I think her pictures speak for themselves! Needless to say, I got engaged on July 4th and have been wedding planning, working full time, managing my etsy store on the side, traveling to see my fiance since we live in different states... aka I've just been busy, but that's what life is about!

DIY Painted Frame

What you'll need:
Frame
acrylic paint
paint brush



Step 1: Remove picture and glass from frame and place on new paper or something you don't mind getting paint on.

Step 2 : Paint the frame. Simple as that.  I left some of the crevices unpainted because I like the way it looks.  Its an easy way to change the appearance of a picture and add color to your wall or picture collage.  Get creative, use bright colors, metallic colors, patterns, or multiple colors.

DIY Light Cover Succulent Terrarium


What you'll need:
Old Light Cover ($3 from Habitat Restore)
planter tray ($2 50% from Hobby Lobby)
Succulents (I used my succulent overgrowth)
Succulent potting soil


This is my first time trying to replant succulents so don't take my word for it, yet! I'm trying to grow my green thumb so we shall see if they survive.  As for now, it surely looks pretty don't you think?

shopellion

My etsy store is now open!

 etsy.com/shop/shopellion or CLICK HERE










All of my candles are made in cups that can easily be cleaned and reused after burning.  If you have something specific that you are looking for feel free to contact me about making you a custom order shopellion@gmail.com.

For now all of my candles are fresh roses and currant but I am considering creating more scents along the way.  One of my favorite candles is diptyque baies so what I've come up with is something very similar.

So stroll along to etsy.com/shop/shopellion and check it out!
