Undiscovered Thursday's - Photography

Hey readers! I hope life is swell for you!

It's Undiscovered Thursday's here at Craft My Soul

This time around I tried to focus on one specific kind of undiscovered shop - Photography!

Here are 3 must-see undiscovered shops. Hope you adore them as much as I!

Pink looking trees and a lonely bird sitting on a wire... breathtaking

Ummm... I just like it okay!
But really there's just something about DeadSound's photo's that intrigue me.
Come one... me pass up a guy with a pumkin on his head? yah right!

Toga Toga Toga

My Birthday was a couple weeks ago...
and everyone got together to throw me a surprise Toga Party

I've ALWAYS wanted to do a Toga party
My wish came true that evening!

My friends got really crafty and creative for this
(just how I like it)

My girlfriends took me to get my makeup done by the ever amazing Sarah

 They had a costume waiting for me
my very own candy bar

A photo op backdrop (below)
and a giant Blue Moon keg... yeaaaaah!
(didn't get a picture of it)

to top it off...
everyone dressed for the occasion

Even the LOVE of my life

Needless to say I had an incredible time!

Creative Baby Shower (Pic HEAVY)

I attended a baby shower last weekend and was given the honor of decorating one of the tables for the tea party themed shower.

All of the table decorating volunteers had to provide the plates, glasses, silverware, napkins, and any miscellaneous decorations.

I decided to go with a "crafty" theme (surprised?)

The tables rented came with umbrella's so of course I wanted to do some bunting for a super rad fabric garland to put around it. I used an Alice in Wonderland, plaid pink and teal, and teal and white fabric for the triangles. 

Bunted Fabric Garland
My first one... what'da think?

I bought the plates and actual iced tea glasses from the Dollar Tree. I fancied up the iced tea glasses with some bows and made enough hair clips for each plate using the same fabrics.

Remember those Rocking Baby Plates?
Here they are in full effect

notice the glasses also have the onesie glued onto them

Mom also did a onesie clothing line for added decoration

Here are the other fabulous tables
Fiesta Fiesta! Arrriba!
Very nice floral motif
Loving the colors
A little Asian inspiration for the party

Now for the food and drinks and yummy yummy sweets!

Cupcakes and cookies all done by my talented Aunt

The tea sandwiches went on these plates with the flower pot labels next to them
Too cute huh?
