More Weddings

I know. I didn't show up Friday. I ran around Springfield with my husband all day. He bribed me with food! What can I say?

In one of my first blog posts, I put up pictures of some of the wedding invitations I've made. This is how the most recent order turned out. The bride-to-be found some invitations she liked, but they were quite pricey (I do mean QUITE!) and it just wasn't practical. She sent me a picture of what she found and I managed to design this for about one-sixth the price! The only similarity between this and the inspiration piece is the kraft paper, but it still has the same feel. The wedding is in an old cotton mill near Dallas, so the muslin seemed appropriate. It wraps around the invitation and the RSVP and ties closed with twine. It took a good little while to make 220 of those little muslin flowers, and I had strings all over from tearing the fabric, but I think it was worth it! I made half of the note cards with "Thank You" and half with a "C" for the couple's last name so they can use them as blank note cards if they have any left after all the thank you notes are written.

Now I'm ready to start throwing ideas at my cousin's fiancee to see what we can come up with for their wedding. But that's in the fall of 2013, so I'm not in a huge rush!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week and I'll see you Friday (probably)!
