... with a great cardboard bottom covered too...

I forgot to tell you, the bottom is made out of a plastic template sheet, so it should be ok to wash it.

Nostephot sent me some wonderful goodies!

First, my stockings. She also made one for Matt (who is now my fianc) so we could have matching ones.



Aren't these reindeer cute?



Some Goodies: a Santa Tin, scarf, bath confetti, a garland, a pine scented candle (which is awesome since I have an artificial tree and I so miss that smell), little bags, and a pouch that will work wonderfully to hold small things in my new blue bag (see below)



More Goodies! Including a chocolate bar, bubble bath (I can't wait to use it!) some jewelry, lotion/body wash set, a reusable - and foldable - grocery bag, lip care, which is already been great with the weather here, a bookmark



And I love these little tea wallets! And chai is my favorite!



One of the little bags here with some screenprinting on it, and my new blue bag. I love the giant red button. I took it out Christmas day and got lots of compliments!. Plus, this scarf is competing for my fav...



With these.



Two magnets, a keychain, and a mirror. I love Audrey Hepburn.

I'm loving my gifts! Thanks Nostephot!

- He wants me to get married in white (I prefer a bit more spunk)

You could always wear white, but dress it up a bit with funky accessories. I'm not familiar with what may be available to you in South Africa, or if he is also from there? But, you could try large brightly colored bracelets, or beaded jewelry or flowers in your hair. If your dress is short enough to see your feet, wear shoes that more match your personality.

Just confirming--everyone can attend the entire reception, but for those who want to let their hair down, they can stay past 4 PM?  If so, say in the invitations / reception card that there will be a (cake & champagne, light hors d'oeuvres, or whatever) reception from 1-4 and thereafter, a relaxed party? 

I don't recommend telling people to come to only certain sections of the same party in the same night.  I think that's rude...imagine pulling up into your driveway and finding that you were only supposed attend at a certain time because the hosts thought you were too uncouth to attend earlier.  Or, at the stroke of 4 PM, being told, "Get out of here...now it's time for the real party, you stick in the mud!" 

Everyone would be invited to the entire party, but I'd just like to let people know that after a certain time (probably later in the evening) it may not be appropriate for children. (not sure how to word that, but I know some of our friends may get out of hand) And also, I'd like to let friends know that if they have been drinking, they are welcome to stay.

I recently got engaged and we are planning on a small wedding (only about 12 guests). we are both outdoorsy people so we are considering having it outside. Any ideas for locations? (We also are on a very small budget)

We will have a reception or a party, hopefully, at our new house, after we return from our honeymoon with other friends and family. Which presents the problem of family with children and rowdy friends. Is there some way we can have a reception from 1-4 (?) for everyone and let friends know that they can stay later. (There will be beer and anyone drinking can stay)

Because of the small guest list we also need to find a way to announce the wedding to the rest of the family, make sure there is no confusion about what they are and are not invited to, and hurt as few feelings as possible.

Any input would be great! Thanks!

EDIT:

I love snow! I was super-excited about the early dusting we got in Oct. but I can't wait for it to start!

Mailing out on the 9th so that I don't torture her with having to stare at the box too long!

Ohh bless you! lol. It totally would torture me.

I'm having a great time crafting! I got quite a bit done, and now I'm looking for boxes and things to put stuff in. Hopefully I can start wrapping some stuff this week!
