The wedding creativity continues. I am making decoupaged frames for my bridesmaids representing how I visualize their future weddings (I’m sure in some ways I’m grossly inaccurate, but imagining my own wedding wasn’t enough fun and I have bridal magazines in droves).
I’m experimenting with pew decorations for the church. I really like this one, but it does undeniably look like a loofah.
My invitations are almost completed. I found unopened Target invites at our Salvation Army; my dad and I printed them with our information; then I added card-stock sleeves with ribbon/photo accents. It hasn’t been too bad labor-wise and my expenses are ridiculously low.
And lastly, I am attempting to get extra-healthy before the wedding. Hence, homemade protein bars (or, more accurately, protein pucks).
I am a girl with dreams
Both too tight and too big,
Like a firmly-laced corset
I cannot fill out.
I wear my dreams
Wide as Marie Antoinette’s skirts;
I get stuck in doorframes
With these inconvenient dreams.
Sometimes after I don my dreams
I wonder if I should go out in public,
So gaudy and conspicuous,
Screaming, “Look at me!”
With the size of my visions.
Girls around me are comfortable
In their worn-in, small-scale plans,
Their coordinated ambitions
And tasteful wishes.
They can breathe easily;
I am gasping.
I’m getting married in 101 days, folks. It’s prime creativity time and I’m trying to squeeze crafting into my school/work schedule. Here’s a few of the things I’m working on.
Friendship bracelets for bridesmaids.
Vintage lace garter for moi.
