Wow, these projects are so impressive! It’s getting me motivated to get back to mine.  Next on my list are tee-shirts, and then cake topper and menu cards / escort cards.  I just finished my invites and posted them on WB.  Here’s the link! 

My cheap DIY handkerchief invitations…and more. PIC HEAVY

Oh, I have so many DIY things on my list to finish.  It’s overwhelming!

So far, I have finished:

  • Made the invites and tied an orange ribbon on each
  • Handwritten envelopes (All mailed last week!)

  • My veil

God, that’s all I can think of right now.  🙁  What I need to do is a much longer list:

  • All of my flowers (can’t start those until the day before!)
  • Glittery wine glasses for the bachelorette party (I have bought the supplies, just need to get started.)  Inspiration:


  • All the jewelry for my bridesmaids
  • My vows
  • Our music playlist (iPod reception)
  • Clean, remove lables, and decorate with paper all of the tin cans I’ve been saving for 2 years.  Inspiration (will be used for floral arrangments instead of fruit however): 


I need to get going!
