My name is Elizabeth Duquette and I am currently 4 months away from getting married to the man of my dreams. Meet Matt, you will probably hear about him every once in a while. This was taken on a trip up our small towns nature trail. He LOVES to take pictures. Lately that's started to rub off on me too. Which is probably where I got the stunning idea to start this blog. I think it is also more for me personally to remember....kinda like an online diary that everyone can see.
Anyways our wedding is going to be small 40-50 guests and it will be in this small town LOL. Matt was born and raised here, and at the time that was all he cared about LOL. Since then we've realized he's more opinionated then most men about weddings. The wedding itself is all DIY, right down to making yes MAKING our own flowers AND my dress. I chose not to have living flowers anywhere in my wedding (saves us a ton of cash) so we are currently in the process of making roses out of coffee filters. They look pretty fantastic too. My Dad is amazing at pretty much everything he tries. My mother is a seamstress and I used to design clothes in college so this was inevitable. We couldn't find what we liked in the stores so we devised our own plan and I LOVE IT :D lol.
More about me!? Well I currently design and create jewelry to supplement my current income. My "studio" is not that great but it works for me :D

These are just SOME of the new bracelets and jewelry I have designed for the shop recently. I'm really into stackable bracelets and faux leather lately.
This is the first morning after putting these in water to sprout, I was so excited :D
Ruby Red grape tomatoesThat same morning after transplant. This is what my ruby tomatoes and strawberries looked like.

cooking onions I planted cause they were sprouted at my mother in laws quite a bit.
These are previously sprouted and growing green onions. I know there a bit hard to see :(
This was today's progress. See how beautiful everything is growing :D
Now I'm off to go test out some new magnetic nail polish I've bought. So see everyone tomorrow :D
