I use this exact same recipe for my baby wipes except no chamomile.  I'm going to try that!  I make up 3 of those peri bottles and leave them out, shake before use, give each cloth a squirt as I need them and it works great.  Oh, and I use Burts Bees Baby Oil as the oil portion and it smells heavenly!  Cheesy
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Reception Newsletter used as a favor (Image heavy) on: October 09, 2007 02:43:55 PM
Not sure if the pics are too big, maybe someone can tell me?

I printed out some newsletters to be used as favors given out at my sister's reception.  They included "articles" on their proposal, how they met, getting to know bride and groom, about the bridal party, contact info for the newlyweds and tons of pictures.  And all those little white areas are spaces I whited-out, with stuff like their address and goofy things like that.  Yes, I am paranoid.   Roll Eyes


5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Hankies for Mom & Mom-In-Law on: October 09, 2007 02:31:21 PM
I picked up old, vintage, lacy hankies at antique stores and embellished them for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.

The tiny blue flowers were crocheted with an ice blue sewing thread.  The embroidered initials and year use the same thread in a cross-stitch pattern.

Each was wrapped in delicate, white paper and had the following card attached (with necessary changes to make it for the Mother of the Bride, I didn't feel like typing both of them up Smiley):

To the Mother of the Groom:
This handkerchief should be used by the Mother of the Groom, to catch your tears on his wedding day.  As he says his vows, know that you are near him even though he joins to another.  Wipe away the tears, wetting the tiny, blue flowers and notice those same tiny, blue flowers worn in your future daughter's hair.  She walks down the aisle toward her own future, a son you raised to become a loving, intelligent and honorable man.  You are not just gaining a daughter, you are gaining an entire family.

Someday their own son or daughter will walk down the aisle.  Angela and Alan will need a handkerchief on that day to catch their own tears.  Please pass it on with any additions you care to make.  Smiley

Pics (it's hard to see some of the embroidery with the flash)!!

It took me FOREVER to think up just those two little paragraphs.  Probably because I was sniffling  Cry the whole time!  Anyway, just wanted to post it so someone else can use the idea too.  Oh, and my sis (the bride) wore the same tiny, blue flowers that were made by me in her hair, so that's why I wrote about the flowers.

And just so you know, both moms used theirs and cried a lot, my mom had her's stuffed in her cleavage during the entire ceremony and reception for easy access.   Grin
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: My sis's shower (& wedding) crafts, includes fans, little people, guestbook on: August 28, 2007 03:03:10 PM
I'm getting married in two months and would love to put something like that together.  How many pages would you suggest getting?  I'm anticipating around 120-130 people and I'm not sure getting a twenty-page book would be big enough?  (Although, I always have a hard time thinking of things to write in books, so it might be enough space...)
I think her's is 26 pages because I added more (and I didn't count in the front and back inside cover or those blank extra pages they put in, but that is extra space too).  It is also the 8X8 one, which I thought was the more similar in size to a regular guestbook.  She is expecting somewhere around 75 people at her wedding.  My method of figuring out the number of pages was I just went through the pages online and guessed how many "well-wishes" would fit on each individual page.  Then I added more pages until I got to the right number.  Not very scientific but I think it will work!  They also had larger books you could make too.

I'll let you know in a few weeks if there is enough space, LOL! Grin
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My sis's shower (& wedding) crafts, includes fans, little people, guestbook on: August 27, 2007 02:30:09 PM
My other sister and I gave our little sis a shower a few weeks back.   Her wedding isn't for another few weeks.  I've done some crafty things and wanted to post the pics of those.  The theme was a tea party and everyone wore hats and drank tea (iced of course, it was HOT).  

Her cake topper idea was from the Little People Thread here on craftster.  Here's a pic of the topper:

And since it was really hot I made fans and to jazz them up printed old pics of my sister and other family members on them.  I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Not related to the shower but when I was home I gave her the guestbook I have made for their wedding.  I am SO proud of how well this turned out!  I couldn't even whittle down the pages I wanted to post so there are a lot.  I made it at photoworks.com (had a FREE coupon if you can believe it!) and used quotes I found online.  

Since it is printed on photopaper the only pen I have found to not smear was an ultra fine point black sharpie.  I did a lot of trial and error to figure that out too.  And it has to be black, the red, green and blue ultra fine sharpies smear.  Go figure?!

And finally, no picture but she wanted the "something blue" so I crocheted teeny-tiny flowers using pale blue sewing thread and she will wear them in her hair.

Thanks for looking! Grin
