watercolor wedding birdies+ gone so long

I haven't posted in forever, I know!!! But I have been busy....I painted these birds as an element of the cards that I made for my bridesmaids. The "cards" turned into small books really, and taught me to keep my invitations simple! I didn't photograph a finished one...but I hope that all of my girls were happy to receive them in the mail!
That's not all that I have been working on...
*I created a shirt design for the girls on team, "high heels for hope" . Each of the teammates are raising $2300 for breast cancer research at the three days for the cure walk. I will post the design soon :) I hope the best for the team and their fundraising!!!
*I donated a necklace/earring set to my mother-in-law-to-be's charity silent auction for the Children's Miracle Network
*I attended a really beautiful wedding and made my friend Christina, the beautiful bride, a super sparkly jewelry set {alright, they didn't register for it...I probably won't get a single thing that I registered for in return! top photo} 
* I am working on some equally sparkly commissioned earrings for my friend Lauren to wear in her wedding- lots of pressure to create something that someone will wear on her most special day! I will share them when they are finished and have the bride's approval!
*jeez....I went to work too.

Wedding dreams {table decor}

I saw this great DIY idea on a few blogs recently and thought that it would be fantastic as center pieces for my wedding reception! I love milk glass {which is conveniently EVERYwhere at garage sales} as well as pretty feminine plates~ my plan is to search garage sales/flea markets/goodwills for both items, then assemble them into cake stands in Savannah before the big day! {epoxy glue apparently does the trick}  I am planning on sticking to my color palette as well as delicately patterned plates to create cohesive arrangements...  
I think that 3 to 5 per table, topped with candles and smaller vases of flowers will be a beautiful centerpiece arrangement! So far, all plates, vases, and candlesticks have been under 3$ and most have been a dollar or less! This also gives me a glorious excuse to go to antique shopping-yay! 
Friends and family~ now you know what to look for!

Illustration Friday- Adapt

My Illustration Friday submit for this week's topic, "adapt" It's hard to be a girl in love with a bird...she chose to "adapt" by eating birdseed and wearing a yellow beak {the rest came later}
