Wedding craft-a-thon, part one

Emily (MOH) and I happened to have a day off on the same day last week. We crafted our little fingers off from dawn till dusk, fueled by our creative passion and raspberry coffee. It was magic. 

I have many more pictures to share, but I thought I would share my favorite first. 

I am very pleased at the final result. I'm planning to use this at the head table. I took the antlers Chancey provided for me and with a little hot glue, wire, and twine... I turned it into the perfect blend of vintage and country. I had been hanging onto that hankie for something special and this was definitely it. My original idea came from pinterest,but once the hot glue got to flowing, I just went 
with it. 
We also made some very adorable fabric hoops. I'm not sure where I am going to use these yet, but that doesn't matter yet. My dear Momma gave me a giant bag of the prettiest vintage fabric scraps. So happy to use them. I am going to have to find some where in my house to hang them up after the wedding. They are too cute to not use later. Maybe I will hang them up in the craft room/ guest room after Jessi moves out. Decisions decisions.

Here is our little craft helper. He was a good boy and either cooed at us while we worked or took naps. 

I'm sad the weekend is over... Trying to hang on to the last moments... Maybe I will be productive and do some dishes or laundry or something. Or maybe I'll keep staring at my computer while watching Dateline... Its really a toss up. 

Earlier today was my favorite kind of Sunday magic. A glorious brunch with my dearest friends while listening to the sound of harp and guitar at Gailey's. Sigh...

I love summer.



  1. I still don't know how to make my background cute like yours. Le sigh.

  2. Your little helper is quite the something. Love that smoochy face. Oh, and your wedding crafts are nice too. Sorry, I'm so distracted by that smoochy face.
