Ok ladies (and gents)-

It is official. Starting September 3rd Oatmeal Lace will have a selection of bridal clutches featured in a new local bridal shop: The White Closet Company. This is going to be the place to find a bridal gown and accessories for your upcoming wedding. Cindy has put so much hard work into opening her dream shop and you guys- it is all paying off! You'll have to come visit- she's offering great specials for her first month in business so get the deals while you can! Plus- you could not ask for a more personal bridal consultant- she will make finding 'the one' so much fun!!!!

I'll be updating the blog with sneak peaks of the bridal clutches I will be offering in her shop- as always, I can customize them to your specifications. :) Just contact us at the store for futher information.

If you follow me on twitter you've already seen that description...
Sometimes coming up with clever titles (in my opinion) is a bit of a problem for me, so if I find one that works it may get beaten to death. sorry...

Just wanted to post a few pictures of some new lovelies I am working on at the moment that are geared less towards the bridal party and more for the bride herself. I know that some brides are not quite as casual with their wedding day attire as I was and while they might like a canvas bag for everyday wear, it doesn't quite fit in with what they've envisioned their bridal accessories to look like.

First up is the romantic ruffled clutch made with white silk and lined with a light blue paisley cotton. (Gotta have that 'something blue', right ladies???) Again- I do love to know that I am not talking to myself so comments are appreciated. :)

Next up, the beautiful blooms clutch which is also made with white silk and lined with a light champagne silk. The blooms are a combination of white and gold fabric and are each adorned with a pearl center. At some point in the near future I will be offering a customizable option where the bride can choose the colors of blooms to match their wedding colors (if they like).

Fun stuff over here people!!! :)

Holy smokes.
Only fitting that my first blog post comes on the day our wedding was featured on Green Wedding Shoes! I'm trying to get my act together and set up my etsy shop, but I need good photos of the products I'm going to sell...Luckily our photog, Matt Miller, from took some amazing ones. Can't wait to get all the images from him!
Wedding planning definitely got my creative juices flowing and I found that I really love trying my hand at all sorts of crafts. Of course I failed at a lot of them, but found that the ones involving my sewing machine turned out the best and were the most fun and rewarding to create. Since I'm still in denial that all of my planning is finally done, I figured I can keep it going by helping others create their perfect day through the little details.
However you've found me here, I'm glad you did! Please drop me a note or let me know if I can help you in any way! I love custom orders and if I am unable to make what you want, I bet I can help you find it! :)
