wedding gifts

So there’s this girl I know named Vanessa. She’s Canadian, eh! She started out as a client but quickly became a friend. She is the most positive, upbeat person you’ve ever met. Everybody needs a friend like that!

Vanessa is getting married in November. Instead of purchasing a gift, I made her a few things. Things she can use as wedding decor (I already know some of the things she’s using and these will go really well with her theme) ย and then use in her home. Possibly a little risky, but I feel like I know her taste very well.

The befores and how-to’s will come in a separate post. I didn’t want to muck up the pretties!

Happy Wedding, V!

    I love all the inspiration you put out there. I’m not a big retail shopper so i do appreciate your “heads” up on where you purchase things.
    The gifts you’ve made for your friend are so beautiful. Friendship is something no one can ever underestimate.
