Table settings

OMG – less than 6 months away!  I’m not working right now so I have lots of time to spend on wedding stuffs.  Fun times!

I worked on my table settings today.  Shannon came with me and by the end was like “I like the white ones…lets just get the white ones.  Yes, these white ones are great. ”  She’s awesome.  I think she’s going to be the voice of reason and “just do it” that my waffling self needs.

So, we ended up getting the white plates  🙂  Came home today and made a shrinky dink horde logo to finish it off!  I think I’ve never loved a plate as much as I love this one:

Tablesettings Part 2

In the tablesettings post I did a few days ago the napkin rings were secured with a button and like embroidery thread.  Wouldn’t it be SUPER cute to use a little sculpy or shrinky dink horde logos?

I’m gonna make a mock up and see what happens.

I found an AWESOME guestbook idea that I have to share! Collaborative Art! The idea was originally posted at One Love Photo and I love it.

Basically you take a canvas and pencil in a basic design for the guests to follow.  Then you divide it up in squares and let each guest paint a square!

We decided to go with markers instead of paint to help keep things a little less messy.  I scoured the interwebs to find a design i liked to put on there, and i think I’ve found it!

This is a picture I got from istockphoto and then converted to outlines in illustrator.  I’m going to go to Kinkos and get it blown up, then i’m going to trace it using carbon paper onto the canvas.  Sounds like a fun project!!

d20 Candle!

We got our silicone over the weekend and had some fun creating molds yesterday. We learned some things (ratio by volume and by weight are different, watch for air bubbles, be extra sure the wick is in the center…) but we got some fun results for our first try.

I couldn’t find our good camera yesterday but I just had to post today, so here is a crappy picture taken with my phone:


There are some imperfections where there were air bubbles – have to figure out how to fix that.  Maybe pound it against the counter to let it settle like you do with a cake…  

For the numbers I had some gold buff left over from my harry potter wands, so I rubbed that in and buffed it out.  It made the numbers come out pretty nice (but also highlighted the air bubbles 🙂

Next time I’m going to try a darker red and silver buff to match the wedding.  So jazzed!

d20 Candles

Now I’m all excited about making d20 candles.  Turns out making a candle mold isn’t that hard!  Check it out!



We can totally do that with one of those huge d20s and use them for favors, decor, you name it!
