The ugly yellow styrofoam wreath was buried in a Target dollar bin, the hat buried somewhere shamefully in the back of my closet and the buttons and leaves were craft left-overs. I felt so validated for keeping those when I finally used them.
When it comes to creating things out of yarn, my sister is the master. I'm just glad I got to recycle a fail.
Sidenote: the fonts I used were Lavenderia and Yanone Kaffeesatz and the background texture along with many others was found at blog.spoongraphics
Today, we miraculously found a hole in the rain for family photos thanks to Annie Ruden (If you're reading this, I'm sad you're moving). I'm excited to see what she got, she has such a talent for finding great lighting and making you feel comfortable. It's no wonder she chose to have a mass family photo session at this time of year. Fall is pretty. Fall in Oregon is BEAUTIFUL! I had to take some photos myself. I only have an iPhone with Instagram, but I'm happy with how they turned out.
