Hello all! Last week's list post made me dizzy. I can not believe how close this thing is! My countdown clock tells me the wedding is 66 days away. I am feverishly trying to finish everything in time. Throw in contracts with a couple of stores in town that I need to supply and an embroidered portrait I need to finish this weekend for an art show and yeah, I'm way busy. But I know everything will come together in the end. It always does.
We finished another bridesmaid dress this Saturday! We totally have this pattern down :)
I love that the back of the dress needs shank style buttons. I have so many vintage buttons to use! These are the ones I picked out for their dresses:
I love them! I'm really excited to finish my dress. we made the muslin of it this weekend too and it is going to be awesome! I'm sad I can't share it with you until after the wedding, I definitely want it to be a surprise to Sheldon and everyone else.
I thought I'd share our tattoos on here as well. I've already tweeted about them and posted pictures on flickr, but they do have something to do with the wedding so they need to be shared here too.
It is no secret that Sheldon and I both love tattoos. I'm a little behind Sheldon with only 3 while he almost has two half-sleeves finished. We had been throwing around the idea of some kind of couples tattoos for quite a while. There were many different things we talked about, but we both agreed that we liked the lock and key idea for their traditional appeal.
Our next decision was to decide who we would get to do them. We both kind of wanted to get them done on our honeymoon, but later decided we needed to get them done by our tattoo guy Travis at No Regrets here in OKC. And since we were going to have him do them, we thought why not go ahead and do it now? We're spontaneous like that. :)
