1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Adorable signs! on: April 20, 2011 03:18:59 PM
I posted these on my wedding thread but I'm too in love with them to not post them here!

I made these photo props for when my fiance and I are taking pics between the ceremony and reception. I'll hold one and he'll hold the other... (obviously)

I made this one for the dessert table...

Hope you guys like these!! I love them. I don't mean to toot my own horn but I just can't help it.  Tongue

Comments are welcome!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Ideas please! 5-ish months to go!! on: April 15, 2011 07:22:18 AM
Soooooo...... I've got just over 5 months 'til the big day and I've been procrastinating!! I need some help on centerpiece ideas...

I bought these birdcages at Michael's for a buck each that were just too cute to pass up. They're only about 4 inches tall but I got enough to have like 2 or 3 on each table... I'm not quite sure what I want to do with them yet. I was thinking I would have a big vase holding up tree branches and I think I want to hang the birdcages from the branches. I've been trying to decide how to dress up the cages some. I thought I might put moss in the bottom of the birdcages and have black and white pictures of my fiance and me glued to cardstock sitting on the moss. And of course some pictures would have to be our love child/great dane, because anyone who knows me, knows my dog is my LIFE.

I haven't done a mock-up of these yet because I still have to repaint the cages, collect the branches, obtain the vases from a friend (yay for money saving!), print the pics, glue them to the cardstock, etc........ So I'm kinda relying on your imaginations to conjure up the image I've described!!

If anybody has any different ideas for the birdcages let me know PLEASE! Any help will be greatly appreciated! Also, opinions of what I've brainstormed so far would be great. Thanks!!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / ENGAGED! Ready to craft an awesome wedding! UPDATED!! on: January 22, 2011 04:13:10 PM
I got engaged on 12.17.10 and I'm soooo ready for the wedding! I plan on crafting a ton of stuff. I've been trolling the wedding thread forever! Being so freshly engaged I don't have much done yet but I'm quite ambitious! On to the crafty goodness I've made so far... By the way, as you will clearly be able to tell, our colors are black and green. But not just any green...Kawasaki green. The fiance rides dirtbikes...a Kawasaki obviously. And so it is...

First...just for fun...THE RING!

(The picture really just does not do it justice. It's absolutely gorgeous!)

And...the dress. Yes, I already bought it.

And on to the crafting!

This is one of the button brooches I made for the bridesmaids. We're already broke and moving out of state in the midst of planning/paying for our wedding (we're trying to pay for everything ourselves) so the girls' dresses are going to be just plain black dresses they can ACTUALLY wear again so I made brooches to kind of dress them up a little.

I made a button bouquet for myself also! (There seems to be a button theme here...hmmm.)

The boys (groom, groomsmen, fathers, and ring bearer included) will all be wearing Converse. I had some custom made for our anniversary last year and since his favorite colors just somehow happen to be our wedding colors he will wear the custom ones. My girls and I (flower girl included) will be wearing Vans. Unfortunately for me, Vans doesn't make a green/black checkered option in my FAVORITE STYLE EVER! so this was another craft I volunteered upon myself. My pair I wear all the time are pretty dingy from many nights at concerts so I didn't want to use those. And being poor, I didn't really want to buy another pair just to color them with Sharpies....so I found some solid white slip-ons (knock-off Vans style) at a dollar store for $8! This is them....(complete with Great Dane legs. *LOVE* my Daisy girl)

So they started as these boring white cheapo Vans knock-offs...and I transformed them into awesomeness using Sharpies and my amazing skills!

They look better now that I've sprayed them with sealer...it really helps to hide the ugly spots! Luckily for me.

Anywho....I hope you guys like my stuff. Comments/criticism/whatev...all are welcome! More to come later. I'll update as I finish stuff.


I had the day off work today so I decided to craft a little!

I made these photo props for when we're doing our pictures between the ceremony & reception. We'll each hold one...

This I made for the dessert buffet we're having...

Hope you guys like them!
