What I've Been Doing...

 Ms. Sally emailed me today checking on me...said it was the "grandmother" in her, so I guess its time I need to give an update here on the blog. I thought after Christmas things would slow down...wrong. That's when all the etsy convo's started coming and lots of brides are planning their rustic farm weddings. Therefore my etsy burlap and lace wedding bouquets have been keeping me busy.

First up were tan and cream burlap boutonnieres for Colleen.

The next order was for Amanda. She wanted white feather with her burlap roses and lace.

 Of course, all the while I work full time and like to chase sunsets in the evening on the way home. I am trying to post a photo a day on Instagram and this barbed wire sunset was one of my recent entries.

If you remember I did a large order for Ann last fall and she contacted me wanting to add pink burlap boutonnieres to their wedding.

Next came Morgan's red burlap roses. She had several bouquets for her wedding.
This was another photo a day picture. We also have a farm to run.

I'm extremely thankful for my husband who helps me with everything. We are partners together and he helps me out from time to time. He's really been getting to know the mail lady this month as he handles shipping and receiving packages.

I have great news too! I contacted a friend a few weeks ago about modeling some bouquets for me for a photo shoot. Well she called me this week and was so excited...She's getting married! She is going to carry one of my bouquets and I am going to be the wedding coordinator, decorator, and photographer! So this means that in April, we will have lots of pictures from her farm wedding. Its going to be vintage - western, outdoors in the cow pasture.

So that is how January has been. I want to thank ALL the brides and families that have chosen GypsyFarmGirl for their wedding bouquets! Thank you for keeping me busy this month! I send my Best Wishes and Congratulations for your Wedding Day.
