My previous post explains my absence. I am one project and one final away from getting my masters degree so things are super crazy in the soon to be Beach household. But don't you worry, with all of the academic work my brain has been doing, I have also been having some super great creativity bursts that I've been focusing solely on wedding planning.
Some ideas I've been having:
Fabric flowers made out of my vintage sheet and button stash. - I'm not sure if I want the whole bouquets to be fabric or a mixture of fabric and fresh daisies, probably a mix. I just love daisies too much not to incorporate them. And speaking of daisies, I'm totally buying them in bulk from Sam's. I love that they have that option. It makes me feel so much better about having fresh flowers. I can't fathom spending thousands of dollars on flowers and then letting them die.
We're also trying to be conscious of waste at the wedding. We can't make the whole thing green, but every little bit helps, so I plan on making a bunch of napkins from my vintage sheets as well. Sheldon will be soo excited to see that I will actually be using all of the sheets I have been hoarding for the last year!
Oh and I believe the bridesmaid/groomsmaid dress predicament has been solved. My mom and I will be making dresses from the Anna Tunic Amy Butler pattern.
I love the idea of having patterned dresses. I haven't completely settled on a fabric yet. Who knows, maybe we'll make those out of sheets too!? These are the commercial prints that I'm mulling over right now. I think they're all Amy Butler as well.
Like the sewing elements I've used? You'll probably be seeing a lot of them on here because I love love love them! They are from Danielle's Kitschy Digitals Granny's Sewing Basket digital kit. And speaking of Danielle's Kits. I used some more of them for this super cute digital scrap-booking page (click on the picture to see which elements I used for this page):
These pictures are all the outtakes from when we were trying to get the perfect picture for our silhouette.
Ok that's enough of my blabbing. I'm just so happy to be back!!!
