Look out Kate and William.....we have our own wedding of the century coming up this September!

For some time now, we have been in a "Do-It-Yourself" mode due to the upcoming wedding of our daughter.  Fortunately, she and her fiance' gave us plenty of time for planning, prepping and creating for the big day; their engagement will have been twenty months long....plenty of time to make their special day, very special with lots of personal touches along the way. 

Many of the upcoming posts will highlight the wedding projects we've created along the way.   

My husband has questioned my sanity on many occassions, wondering why I'm doing what I'm doing, and how big of a truck we will need to haul all the goodies up to the venue, but he has also been a good sport in chipping in when asked.  

What are all the D-I-Y projects ?  There are just a few:
  • "Save the Date" notices
  •  Invitations
  •  Centerpieces 
  •  Cake stand
  •  Table numbers
  •  Luminaries
  •  Christmas ornaments
  •  Wedding cake pedestals
  •  Wedding gown (I'm a former pattern maker/fashion designer by trade and a seamstress since Mrs. Wilkerson's 7th grade home economics class)
