i've been a busy bee!

so these past 2 weeks have been veryyyy busy and exciting!!!
first, my dad and i made salsa!!! something my family used to make every year, and my dad and i decided to do it again this year! we used lots of garden fresh organic produce and it is sure tasty!

i finished and hung my last painting that belongs to a grouping i did for a local hair salon! i love seeing all the paintings together!

and this past weekend, i did makeup for a friend's wedding (makeup for the bride, her mother, and bridesmaids) and then decorated both the ceremony and reception! it is truly a passion of mine to decorate and help at various events, like weddings! events like these bring together all of my favourite things: decorating, crafts, design, food, music, etc! here are some photos i took of the reception hall.

the photos are dim, but i wanted to just use the candlelight in the photos, to show the ambience that was created. we made those huge tissue paper flowers that i have seen on many crafty blogs, and martha!

oh and every spare minute lately has been spent crocheting granny squares!!! i am an avid knitter, and have tried many times to crochet, and been very unsuccessful! i followed this tutorial a couple weeks ago, and it is now so easy!!! i am so excited, and am making tons of squares in different colours, and will put them together into an afgan! i think i have about 45 done so far! yay!!!!

happy monday loves <3
