Pretty flowers from Austin Bridal Extravaganza.

Here are few of the pretty bridal bouquets I had the opportunity to make at the recent Austin Bridal Extravaganza for Sweet Magnolia Floral Studio.

Hey, stranger! It's been a while!

As you've probably noticed, I've taken a much-needed hiatus from blogging to get settled into my new town. And let's just say, it's been fast and furious since. I've since taken on two jobs, and am slowly finding the balance to make it all happen.

I won't say it's been the easiest transition, but I'm learning to trust my instincts, follow my heart and prioritize what's important in my life. And when I thought about it, I missed writing, blogging and photographing life so much. When I first started this blogging journey, I loved sharing things that inspired me, what I had been working on in my home studio and playful musings about life. Somewhere in there, I felt pressured to post the best of the best to gain pins, stats, followers and features. It started to feel more like a job and less like a pure form of expression, and sharing with thoughtful sweet readers (like you!)

So, I've decided to revive the blog and go back to basics. My posts may not be frequent, but they will be real. They won't be perfect, but they'll be from the heart. They might run the gamut and be completely random, but that's just me.

Here are a few vignettes in my new little apartment in San Marcos, Texas. I'm learning to love this little river town and all its quirks. I'm learning to live on less, but infuse everyday life with simple things that make it more beautiful.

Gallery wall in the living room. Peacock painting, map and one pair of footprints made by me. :) 

A colorful dreamcatcher I painted this afternoon.

My foyer greets us daily with a great reminder.

Succulents in mismatched glass I scored at a yard sale for 50 cents each. Love me a good bargain!

On River Time. One of the first hand-stitched  projects I made for our new locale.

So, those of you who have visited before, thanks for coming back. I'm looking forward to making creativity a priority and sharing it with you.
