Unveiling of the beautiful dress

Doesn't it look gorgeous on the bride?  We modified a McCall's Halloween dress. I can't take credit for these pictures, my friend who does photography did them, thanks for sharing Katie.  She also has an etsy store for printing on canvas.
And here is a wedding day shot.  Congrats L & R!  We love you guys!

Busy, Busy, Summertime

It seems to happen every year.  Summer vacation comes and I find myself extremely busy as my dh is off most of the summer.  So I spend less time online.  And more time with actual adult conversation.  This year I seem to be busier than ever.  I have two boys with birthdays this week and as they get older I can find time to do things I just couldn't with young babies.  Like canning all day...

Today my dad and I canned 55 quarts of tomatoes.  My table is a sea of silver and gold canning rings.  It is really neat to see.  Tomorrow will be bread and butter pickles, dill pickles and sweet pickle relish.  Last few weeks it was pitting plums and making jam.

The wedding I made the dress for is over and I just need to get some pictures from a friend so I can post.  Poor girl got sick on her wedding day, don't think she will ever forget it.  She was feeling better by the reception in the evening thankfully.

And since I don't have enough projects already I am starting another one.  LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!
Found it while looking for a siggy swap which I also joined.
