Saying Goodbye…

Man, this is a tough post…. this was my first blog, started on Blogger and moved to WordPress when I went into full time wedding blogging…. Well, it seems that life has caught up with me and publishing has not been a priority. I’ve been reluctant to blog once every two weeks… Which is unfair to my readers. I am a part of the TWIPS community and I, unfortunately, have not been able to keep up with the group’s requirements for vendors. I’m so sad!

I will be continuing with my other blog: [Confessions of a Wisconsin Housewife] and will be adding wedding elements every now and then to the blog.

It’s been a great ride and the blog will continue to run for one week.


Thank you to my faithful readers…

[Around the Web] Lace Inspiration

Today, I snuck onto Alisha, one of my close friends pinterest board [Lace, Lace, Lace] for a little Around the Web inspiration. I LOVE lace for weddings so I hope you enjoy these inspiring photographs! My favorite element is Alisha’s Save the Date idea. Alisha is a very crafty person herself and uses scrabble letters on photo frames so I think it fits her perfectly!
