Baby Love Onesies

Baby Fever.

There is a major case of baby fever going on at the Draper household at the moment – well, at least for me! One of my dearest and best friends Crystal is having a baby girl here soon and I’ve gone into a serious DIY Baby mode as the big day gets even closer.

Hand sewn “rag” flowers, custom fabric printing and all things chic and girly have been my life the last couple of days. I think there is nothing cuter than a baby in a chic onesie, so I hope Crystal and lil’ baby Dorman love the things I’m making for them – because I sure love them!

This is just one of a few that I’ve made for Crystal’s baby shower coming up and I’ve fallen in love with making custom and from the heart onesies. This is definitely one thing that I’ll keep doing for the years (and babies) to come. 🙂

The fairest of them all.

Beauty.

Happy Friday, everyone! Now, the question is what bride doesn’t want to be beautiful on their wedding day?! And the fact is that every bride does! But one of the most common problems I see coming between a bride and her dreams is . . . the BUDGET.

Before anyone cues the sympathy music, I have a suggestion for you, budget-conscious brides, to remember when looking for that extra hair accesory to make you even that more beautiful for your husband-to-be and everyone attending.

If you are watching your pockets, Etsy, an online marketplace focused on handmade goods, has a great wedding section!

And if you aren’t a budget-conscious bride, I would recommend an online accessory store called Untamed Petals. Their bridal accessories are beyond adorable!

Both websites are perfect for modern brides looking for a classic twist, so I’ve matched up the following goods to compare the price differences!

Keep in mind that Etsy is a marketplace and goods go fast, especially if they’re a great steal! With Untamed Petals, you might not have to worry so much about that. Just have fun and remember to keep your budget in mind at all times! Starting a marriage on a tight budget because you spent too much putting together the wedding is never a good idea!

…and they lived happily ever after.
