"Get Stitched" Wedding Embroidery

I just finished a new embroidery for a beautiful girl who wanted to have this stunning wedding photograph (not taken by me, I wish I knew who did take it because it is AMAZE) made for her husband for their second year anniversary. She was so sweet and excited about the project that she let me pick the color theme. I hope she is as happy with it as I was when I finished.

Got a photo you want stitched? Send it to me! Here's my shop!

Have a fantastic evening! I'm off to the dog park..

Swamp Patrol

I grew up in a very small Louisiana town. My family owned the local radio station, and if you got pulled over for a speeding ticket, you were on the front page of the newspaper. Although we moved away when I was nine to Houston, my grandparents lived there their whole lives and eventually my parents moved back. It is my favorite place in the world. When I drive past the fields I used to play in, or see the dock we used to swim off, I am fiercely overcome with nostalgia.

And the swamps. How do I even begin?

They're deep and glassy in the evening, and chartreuse at day, and the best time to visit them is a night, in the pitch black.

(The Rosalie, in Natchez). I took many a tour with my grandma.
The swamp next to KFNV, our old radio station. A car crashed into it once.

Oh dear! The dog is drivin' the boat!

Where is your favorite place and why?

Free Mustache Rides

Last weekend Austin and I helped our friend Jason Poland run the mustache ride at the Free Press Summer Fest. These boys got together and made a giant mustache-shaped seesaw for the occasion and my friend Julai sewed us some matching mustache dresses!

After going to Summer Fest and experiencing the heat, I've come up with some new and more appropriate names for it like:

The Gates of Fiery Hell Fest
Share Sweat with Strangers Fest
Dehydration Festival
Inappropriate Tween Ass Fest

Any of these could work!

All jokes aside, just wear your bathing suit and make use of the water operated art installations and you'll be fine.
