As well as doing hands on craftiness, I love to get great shots of people and nature. Here is a few shots of Gilreath Mill in Greer SC. Brett and I were riding around and found this awesome place right on the road. I dont know much of the story behind it, but the pictures turned out great.
Also inside, it is still full of stuff! I have no idea how long the stuff has been there. I cant imagine anyone being able to walk in there, the floors look like they would fall right through. But I would love to get in there and look around at all that old stuff.

Miles 1st Birthday!!

I cant believe a year has went by since I gave birth to my sweet baby Miles. We tried to give him the best birthday party ever! I know he wont remember, but he will always have pictures to look back on. And each year will only get better!!

So almost everything from his party was handmade......I find so much joy in doing this and plus I save the muhlaa!

Here is his cake. Simple small cake iced. I found some Wiltons candy decorations at Mighty dollar. So I used all the party hats out of it to go around the outside. The one on top was made by using my cricut.

I also made his cupcakes. These were very simple. I used my cricut to cut out each party hat, and then cut out a "m" to put on them for Miles. I got one of those cupcake stands, which I think made it look much nicer!

Making his party decorations were fun too!! Again I put that cricut to work!
I made a banner and with the left overs I made a poster. On the banner, I cut out scalloped circles using my nestiabilites and cuddle bug. I put a picture of him on each one from through out the year.

Miles loves his cake and all his presents, and thank you to all the wonderful family and friends that came to celebrate with him!
