Candlemaking sounds SUPER fun!  We used to go to this old fashioned village where they dipped their own candles and made lye (ewww) soap.  Keep us updated on your progress!

I waver back and forth about favors but I keep coming back to traditional Jordan almonds.  So maybe I’ll make the containers for them?  My next DIY project, to ease the waiting anxiety (waiting for a proposal AND a job currently), is making napkin rings.  I bought gold floral wire and pearl seed beads and am HOPING it’ll turn out something like this:



The wire is much thinner, and there’ll be pearl beads randomly along the twisted wire.  I’m going for a gold, ivory and red theme, so we’ll see how it goes.  Michael’s is also having some good sales on wedding stuff, at least at my home store in Minnesota.  I found ivory card with “Thank You” in fancy gold script.  Perfect!  I snapped up a couple boxes while I could lol!

@Lulume:  You sound like you know what you’re doing. I just want to say I made candles for Christmas using a kit from Michaels. It was really hard work & enormously messy! But I am not a talented crafter, hehe.  I hope it is awesome for you.

I started thinking about buying invitations but they were super expensive at the store I like. I know it doesn’t make sense to buy them until we’ve discussed things like guest list, but I just wanted to have something in mind. Now that I’ve seen the prices, I am thinking DIY!
