2  Ruby_soho's August 23 Wedding! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by ruby_soho on: September 15, 2008 12:41:49 PM
I have gabbed about it since forever, but we're (finally) married and I (finally) have pictures to prove it!  Here are things I made...

The invitations:

The programs, sign, and a bit of the basket I decorated...

The guest"book" table - not quite so crafty, but I decorated it, so... it fits, right? 

Centerpieces (all of the guests' tables had solid-color daisies, this is the head table that had red and white daisies):

Corsages for the moms:

Bouquets and Boutonnieres (as modeled by the wedding party):

Ring pillow (and a closer shot of a butonniere):

Cake "topper", which was made before we decided on the plate-tier cupcake set-up (and my husband getting a napkin to clean up the cake smear - hah!):

Candy Buffet Containers & Candy Buffet:

And the arch! 

What do ya think?

i just finished one today for my fiance... 

this took foooooreeeevvverrrrr to do... i spent the better part of the day drilling and grinding and sanding the inside, which included about an hour to pick a piece of rogue metal out of my finger and several hours total waiting for the thing to cool down enough to touch. 

if anyone else does this, use something to protect your fingers and your eyes, because stuff flies everywhere, and the metal gets freaking HOT.

so i finished this and went and got a manicure, because my hands were messed.  Cheesy

4  Red, White, Black, and Silver Daisy Wedding Invitations [IMG PHAT] in Weddings and Bridal Showers by ruby_soho on: April 16, 2008 09:18:30 PM
Two weekends ago, my fiance, his mom, and I knocked out our wedding invites after I had been obsessing over them for ages.  All of this was done in MS Word and Photoshop and it was printed at Kinkos. 

The outside:  Red Cardstock wrapped with silver and black ribbon, and a tag on top specifying the guest's name(s).

The flip side:  The outside back.  The ribbon holds onto the RSVP card and the map/accommodations card.

The address side of the RSVP postcard, complete with an Alaska highway stamp (because i'm from Alaska - I scored these on eBay for cheap, which I liked because I didn't want to have to use the panthers.   Lips sealed  also, they are 29 cent stamps, which still works after postage goes up in May):

The information side of the RSVP postcard, design based on TheBon's RSVPS:

The Map/Accommodations card, Map side.  Design based on Wedding Mapper.

The Map/Accommodations card, Accommodations side.

and, finally, the inside of the cardstock, the ACTUAL INVITE:

...and the envelopes, hand addressed by moi; and, at the bottom, the return address label (for good measure).

Please pardon the ghetto censoring - I didn't have time to futz with photoshop Cheesy 

So?  Whaddaya think?  Very un-pokeball, yeah?  They'll be going out next week-ish Cheesy

ETA:  crap.  i didn't realize these pics were so washed out when i posted... you can get the gist, though, right?

woo!  i received from zombiekilla yesterday!  she spoiled the crap out of me!

the loot:

ruby helping to arrange said loot (but really just stomping on it, which means she approves):

a super awesome apron she plucked right from my wist (and dude, how did you know i love that fabric?  i have some in my stash!):

new collars for my furbabies (though sadly frankenstein is the only one skinny enough to fit in them - the others are kinda tubby Sad) :

a poppet making kit (yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!):

and my very own poppet, ella (that she made based on me!  aww Cheesy)

plus, an owlie fabric bookmark that turns into a cuff!

and a ton of little magnets and keychains!  one of these is ruby's face, another is a tree with my and my fiance's initials, and one is a little ball of yarn and knitting needles with real roving.  i love themmm!

 as well as a little red purse with my first initial on that is so me, and some little paperclips and tacks with pictures on them.

i got 5 today!

"I'm a pagan, but I hate all the freaks and weirdos in my community.  Why do they need to dress like they're going to a renaissance faire anytime we have a group event?  And where are all the attractive people?"

"I think colleges use scantron to make us all become suicidal.  Seriously, it's working!"

"I have a whole folder on photobucket of naked pictures of myself.  I look at them and cry.  Not because of who I took them for - because of how I look now.  Sad  I used to have curves that I loved - now I'm just fat.  [I can't draw.]"

"One day we will be married..."  and on the back:  "To each other!"

"I'm terrified to see the gynecologist."
