Two sales in a week!

These are my vinyl decals that can be used at your guided reading table instead of wasting supplies on post it notes or paper.  They rub off nicely with a towel.

One of two etsy orders I'm completing tonight!

A fellow teacher asked me for some bright coloured superhero die cuts to put on her bulletin board at school.  I made two sets for her and she sent me her bulletin board once it was finished! Neat eh?!

If only you could see the sparkle!!! Bride and groom shirts going up in the shop!

Being a card maker, I've always dreamed of making my own invitations.  This wedding is at a winery and it will be a rustic chic type affair.  My friend Monique is perfect for helping visualize since her house design is exactly that!

We have been working on a lot of shabby chic items for decor but I will save that for another post!

Back to the invitations.  Ive worked on them and worked on them and then guess what?! My fiancĂ© doesn't like them! Now remember the theme!!! This isn't your typical banquet style invitation.
I think they are amazing and I love the fonts! My mom... not so much, she said they are hard to read.  Aren't wedding invitations supposed to have fancy writing?! Anyway I think to break up the brown, I will be adding lace to the belly band or replacing it with lace burlap all together.  What do you think?

Schools out for the summer!

I made a goal that now that summer has started and I am now officially in Wedding mode, that I would post everyday to get/give advice on the processes during wedding planning.  I can honestly say that I understand completely why people pay for wedding planners and that they have lots of pressures and are well worth the money you spend on them.  At the moment of this post, I am doing it all myself because I have time this summer.  That may or may not change.  We shall see.
Let me give you the basics of what I've done right now:

  • Church/Organist
  • Venue
  • Caterer
  • Dress
  • Bridesmaids
  • Cake
  • DJ

What I still need to do:
  • convince my dad that he is not going to photograph the wedding
  • florist
  • centrepieces
  • bombonieres
  • Little pieces of DIY to make this My wedding
  • shoes - (anyone find a 2 inch heel in royal blue, let me know!)
  • Veil/hair pieces
  • Make up/Hair
  • Honeymoon
  • Limo/bus rental
  • invitations
Believe it or not, this list is very daunting...... Lets take it a day at a time!
