Love you Long time!

A lot has happened since my last post in May!

I have been busy with wedding bouquets !  A few ladies have trusted me with their special day! And I have to say they trusted the right person! Here are some of the shots of the bridal bouquets I have made!

The client asked her bouquet matched her daughters dress, and it did beautifully!

This bouquet is still in the works, this is the brides bouquet!

Make a statement


I've been dying over some vintage rings and button bracelets I've seen lately and I just HAD to try my hand at some.. except I didn't have the right pieces to make it.. so I improvised :)

I know I've told you about the grab bags of broken jewelry I purchase at my local thrift store, well they are filled with everything.  I found a ring that was missing some stones, and chose an earring.  I removed the post on the back of the earring and hot glued the ring to the back of the earring.  I suggest to make a ring to use a glue like e6000 and not hot gluing it.  But the crafter in me HAS to try an idea when it consumes me regardless of having the right materials!

And now without further adieu

For a wonderful Mom

**Edited to add that the Mom loved her bouquet! It arrived just in time and I heard she had to really wait until Mother's Day to open it!**

So I've been posting on facebook how one of our bouquets would be the perfect gift for a Mom on Mother's Day.. A friend's husband messaged me to put together something special for his wife, mother of their babes.  I was so excited because she deserves anything and everything beautiful.  She is a wonderful mom, a great wife, and a terrific friend!  3 days later, and I've finished it, so until Mother's Day approaches, I get to stare at this:

Grey and Yellow

So I have to share, I started wiring up yellow and grey buttons after I made my first bouquet (which sold on etsy by the way!) and then I left it, I wasn't inspired, until just a few days ago..

Grey and yellow is so beautiful

This bouquet which could be placed in a pretty vase, jar or even a bucket will be for sale on etsy, and facebook! Just search madleigh creative

Before school!

I'm heading out to A's class again to help the children make the pom pom bunnies! They have done a great job so far!!

Today we'll be giving A's teacher this:
Flowers and tea!
This mini bouquet has colours featured on the tea cup, a perfect cup of tea and flowers that never rest? I think this is wonderful!
