a tea party & a crafternoon.

A few weeks ago, my in-laws threw a tea party. 
There was delicious food and ridiculous hat wearing, but my favorite part was making these darling houses.
They were surprisingly super easy to make and we had tons of fun!

Stencil Me In

My husband just opened up his own Etsy shop, STENCIL ME IN!
He specializes in customized, personal art, but he can do just about anything! Here are some pictures of some piece he has done that I have in our home. 

 He made this one for me as a wedding gift, it's my favorite one. 
(He can do any picture sent to him!)
His art is the perfect and meaningful gift for any occasion!

shave & a haircut...

....2 bits! 
I went through a little phase in high school, where my friends would have me cut their hair for them. I really had no experience with cutting boy's hair, but I agreed and actually could do a pretty good job. Now when my husband asked me to cut his hair it was a whole different story. I felt more pressure to do a good job, & I really cared about doing a good job. I kind of thought he was just kidding until he showed up at our house with hair cutting supplies and I knew he was serious. I had never used a buzzer before & I was pretty nervous to!
 Excuse our messy mirror... We've had workers cleaning up a part of our basement that flooded, & well, I haven't gotten around to cleaning it.
Even though it took me about three times longer than a usual haircut, it turned out pretty good! 
Then again, Taylor could be bald & still look like a million bucks.

Festival of Trees

Last night, I went to the festival of trees. My mom, sister & I have gone every year for as long as I can remember. I danced at it when I was little, & worked in the scone & cinnamon roll shop for years when I was a teenager. This year, my brother and sister came with all their kids! Although it made it super crazy, it was so fun being all together, especially before my brother and his family move to Illinois. Going there really got me into the Christmas spirit!
Happy December!
