So I finally got my act together and finished my 2011 handmade items. So far Maribel is the only one I've exchanged with. This is the little purse I made her :)
And she gave me this cute little fabric clip with button center
On Monday Maribel and I went thrifting and she introduced me to the most amazing shops in Long Beach. I got soooo many cute things for the wedding for such great prices..I was estatic!
PLUS I even got this cute little ottoman for $15 bucks!
The other day I was on MarthaStewart.com (Love her!) and found a tutorial on how to make tissue pom-poms! So easy and so cute. I'm addicted! Im pretty sure if I could hot glue pom poms all over Tim I would. But since I can't, I'll just glue them everywhere else!
This was my first attempt but it came out way bigger than I wanted. (I tried to give it to Tim to take to work to decorate his cubicle but he said, "No, the bow (he calls it a bow) looks good on the coffee table"..pshhh.)
Once I got the measurements down it was on!
As far as wedding planning goes, things are actually running smoothly *knock on wood* We are meeting with the caterer next week for the tasting. Hmm...Braised Lamb in Savory Dough or Crostini with Duck Confit? Do you guys make grilled cheese? Hopefully we can find something that will be edible :)
ALSO! I'm so excited because today I had a phone conversation with a very awesome videographer who will be helping us with a little surprise we've got planned. Let's just say its going to be EPIC!
