Whimsy Wednesday {iPadcases}

today I get my awesome iPad.....I have been anxiously waiting since I heard my hubby ordered it for me for my "graduation" gift. I know...I didn't graduate but my hubby still got it for me for the support I gave him throughout nursing school. So excited for my new gadget. Thought I would post a few fave iPad cases!

My Hubby Graduated

Last weekend my awesome hubby graduated with a BSN from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After all his hard work he graduated with a Cum Laude in Nursing. Below are the photos taken by my dear friend Megan (of Soli Photography) of our friends and family celebrating his pinning ceremony.
Corey's parents, my brother, sister in law and niece and nephew
our amazing friends and family - we are so fortunate to call these crazy people ours :)
my husband won the Mary B. Jackson (founder of the UTC nursing school) award. This award was voted on by his peers. This was a proud moment for all of us.
pinning my husband - looked forward to this day for a long time!
I love us, and I am so glad that we have had each other along this journey.
still time for silliness among the serious day ;)
I love my family - this is my brother and nephew sneaking in for a photo op
my awesome "murse" Corey - one of my proudest moments.

Graduation Day!
My Hubby is now an alumni of my alma mater!!!
My boo is smart! SO proud of his accomplishments
UTC's largest graduating class, and my hubby was in the last row :)
a beautiful day for a picnic. Corey's mom, step dad and aunt put on an AWESOME picnic to celebrate Corey's and his step sister Toni's graduation.

That night we went to a graduation party put on by Corey's classmate Lisa.
We had such a great time celebrating with his classmates, I wondered why I hadn't hung out with them before!!
Here is a photo of us in our beautiful orchid leis Lisa had flown in from Hawaii.
We had a wonderful weekend of celebrating. We ended the weekend with an awesome Mother's Day brunch Corey cooked for his mother, aunt and our family. Thanks to all the friends and family who celebrated with us. We are so lucky to have you guys.

project 52 {weekeighteen}

I can't help it.....seeing things like this make me VERY bitter about not being able to be a mother. You can't see in this picture that the woman was also smoking a cigarette while being in an electric wheelchair and pushing a NEWBORN in a stroller with her bare feet. It broke my heart and I had to take a picture. Some things just aren't right......

Project 52 {weekseventeen}

just getting around to posting last weeks Project. Here is a collage of photos from our 3 days without power. I had a wedding on Friday that I had the pleasure of sewing custom items - well thank god for a headlamp and a sense of humor. My makeshift bunker in the hallway made me feel safe, thanks also in part to the wine and candles ;). And my hubby made us soup one night on his camp stove. Thank goodness for a handy hubby :)

Raining Love

After all the disaster in the south last week. I thought to myself "what can I do to help." Well I can stitch! SO I designed this Raining Love Raindrop that can be either a brooch or a barrette. The price is $10 and you can either do local pick up or $2 will come out of the $10 and I can ship it to you. ALL proceeds will go to my local Red Cross Chapter.

I am simply heartbroken over the disaster that swept through my area. If you haven't seen pictures or heard about it here are some links.

AMAZING video of the damage in Ringold, GA here.
Great news article here
Beautiful video of Ringold here
Other ways to help here

To order your Raining Love Brooch/Barrette email me at tobi@iveyhandcrafted.com - let me know if you want to pick up, ship and do you want your drop to be a brooch or barrette. I will make these as fast as I can. I have already sold 22 today! So bear with me :)

spread the word.....spread the love....

xoxo,
Tobi

Whimsy Wednesday {terrariumtreats}

So last night I went to an awesome terrarium class at my fave local flower shop The Daily Flower. After making the cutie pie terrarium I thought it needed a little friend to go inside.
So I went searching on etsy to find the perfect fit.
I haven't decided what to get, but I do love these ideas. I thought this whimsy wednesday deserved a few entries because I didn't get to blog last week due to power outage.
So enjoy a few little treats that would work great for your terrarium.
