Wedding Shower Video

is a GENIUS!!!
I don't know where she comes up with these ideas, but I am glad she does!!!
She made a movie out of some of the pictures from the shower...
It reminds me of an old time silent movie!!!
Take a look....

Making my Birdcage Veil

I made my veil today!
I didn't take pictures of the process but I have pics of the final product.
Veil Material and Flowers purchased at Nicholas Kneil.
I am in love with his shop... Everything is the best quality!
The flowers here are actually the first thing I bought for my Wedding in January 2010.
Time flys... I thought 18mos was a long engagement but it seems like Matt proposed just yesterday... 
Oh how I love that man... 

I made the flowers detachable so after the Ceremony I can take off the veil and just wear the flowers...
I am sure it will look a lot better when I am wearing makeup and my hair is curled... LOL

I had to add a little "Something Blue"

View from the front... Just over the eyes, so no lifting to get a kiss... lol...
I think it turned out great!
I am really starting to get excited!

Making Fascinators for the Bridesmaids

I decided to make fascinator hats for all of the bridesmaids...
I ordered the hat base from
She is in the UK but shipping was fast and the hat bases are very nice quality!
I used a bowl to make circles on the material I purchased at JoAnn's Fabrics.
I had my coffee and was ready to go!

After tracing the bowl I cut the fabric...

Fabric a bit larger than the hat base..

Time to Hot Glue!

Started with small sections

Slowly glue and press...

almost done...

Trim the leftover fabric

Yay... all 6 complete! Time to Decorate!!!

Flowers purchased from Nicholas Kniel
This one is for Angela





Here is what they look like on...

Not sure which one is my favorite... I like them all... each one is unique!
Can't wait to see all the girls wear them!

Button Button Wedding Shower

My Mom, Grandma, and Sisters threw me a Button themed Wedding Shower a couple weekends ago! It was so much fun! They had everything from Button Cookies, Button Cupcakes, to actually making Button Rings! I had a blast!!! I have the best most creative family in the world! Thank you so much! I love you all!
Here are some pics!
Feeling Like a "50's Housewife" Cleaning in my heals and makeup before the guests arrive.
All thats missing are my pearls!
(50's Vintage dress from Crafty Crow Vintage

I made dresses for the girls to wear. Of course Juno the "tomboy" ruined hers before the guests arrived, but at least my talented and "quick" photographer sister Hope got this pic.

Daisy loved her dress and wore it all day... She loves to pose for the camera! Little Ham!

Button Cookies!

Of course I HAD to try them before everyone got there!

Yummy Cupcakes!

With Buttons made from fondant!

Should I eat this??? Hmmm... So tasty... but must fit into my dress in June!

Sweet Love

I had such an amazing time!
