Here are a couple pictures that I took January 8 when it was really cold, and after a foot of snow over the previous few days:
But, the cold weather has given me an excuse to stay in and start to work on DIY projects for the wedding. In addition to the table decoration prototype that I came up with (see last week's post), Kristen found the cutest little bag-shaped favor boxes. They are white, and came with white ribbons to make bows, but we thought they needed jazzing up. So .... I'm stamping them with teal Staz-On ink and the same stamp we used on her save the date cards; then we'll put some tissue paper inside:
The bride's colors are teal, orange and green, so we are thinking of using all three colors of tissue, just to make a more festive display. The boxes will go on the table with the candy buffet, and guests will fill their own little boxes with the goodies of their choice.
My nephew's wife also likes to scrap, and she made mini-layouts using photos of the two of them, then placed them in 5x7 acrylic frames and used them as table decorations at their wedding. Kristen loved the idea, so we will be doing that too. Here's the first one I made -- easy and lots of fun!
We're also printing and assembling invitations (from a box kit, but they also have ribbons); and if we have time, making wedding programs. The wedding is 12 weeks from today; yikes!
Oh yeah, I also made a couple of new year's cards:
