I’m not gonna drone on about how busy I’ve been this past month. No, busy doesn’t even begin to describe my life. Let’s put it this way, I’ve only slept in my own bed 4 nights of the last month. I wish I were kidding.
When I look back at all that we’ve done in a month it really doesn’t seem real – created 100 clay ring dishes, crafted lots of paper flowers, meticulously hand-cut a floral logo for BEY, assembled tons of confetti cloud balloons, reupholstered a sofa (in one night), built a hanging bed, glued 2,000+ spoons to a hanging starburst installation, built 20 farm tables, built two gorgeous tufted benches, refinished a china cabinet, collaborated on two styled shoots, produced my own styled shoot and that doesn’t even include the normal day to day rentals and such. Whew!
It’s been crazy for sure! Mr. BEY and I are looking forward to getting back to a much more normal work schedule these next few months and catching up here on the blog. I have so much to share with you! Hope you guys have a great weekend!
You know what they say, “No rest for the weary.”
This week we start Operation Farm Table. Hours cutting, hours building, hours staining, hours distressing – all to bring you 20 gorgeous hand-crafted farm tables. What an awesome addition to our inventory! We’re so excited to get started.

There’s nothing sweeter than sound of tin cans rattling behind the car of a happy couple that’s just said “I do”! It’s such an old-fashioned tradition and the perfect way send off a lovely bride and groom.
Blue Eyed Yonder’s happy to announce our “Love” Streamers are now available for sale in our Etsy shop. Yay!

The “Love” streamers are beautifully hand crafted featuring strands of paper hearts, hand-cut felt hearts, tiny hand-tied tassels and painted tin cans in a variety of sizes. All of the strands are secured to one central ring with nylon cording for easy attachment to the underside of your vehicle.
Interested in a custom color combination? We can do that too! Just convo us through our Etsy shop with color questions or requests. Happy shopping!
Ok seriously, is there anything that screams FUN like confetti?
For Wedding Day Hooray, Blue Eyed Yonder greeted all brides with a big, confetti-filled balloon. It was so cute to see all the brides walking around with their bouncy balloons. Once they reached LeahAndMark.com‘s photobooth they popped the balloon to release a cloud of confetti and fun coupons from BEY. Yay!
I love seeing all of their faces as the balloons exploded. Such a great prop for photobooth.

With the NotWedding just weeks away, I wanted to give you another little glimpse at this year’s gorgeous NotWedding couple. This bridal shoot proves you really can find beauty in even the most dilapidated of places. Joe’s concept with this shoot is marvelous – I’m so excited to see more from this guy!
Fashion photography has always been a secret passion of mine so I decided to go with a high-fashion shoot based on Andy Warhol’s muse, Edie Sedgewick. Andy named her the “Queen of the Factory” in that her beauty, and overall essence, captivated his factory studio. Edie was a true light in a dark place, and darkness always seemed to find her…this, however doesn’t negate the fact that her beauty and innocence always shined within the shadows.
The concept was easy…take a gorgeously styled bride and place her in harsh/dilapidated surroundings and let her beauty and soul take the reins.
