Creativity...can make you nuts!


I think I am getting ahead of myself with all this wedding planning. It is quite obsessive...I work, eat and sleep wedding invitations, save the date cards, favors! OY! I have dreams about colors and paper and ribbons.  I love all this stuff and being creative is very fulfilling to me....unfortunately it does not go well with my obsessive nature which wants me to have it all done immediately.  

I am currently working on invitations and save the date. I designed a save the date which is cute and Juliano loved - of course - but it is not exactly what I see in my head. I want to make sure it doesn't look cheap. At the same time, I want it to be cheap.

Paper - I think I am going to embark on a few wedding projects.  I want to make flower seed paper which we can use as favors... plant it and watch the love grow. I may also be able to use is as part of the invitation pieces. It will be a lot of work because of the sheer number of invitations that need to be made. Call it a labor of love I guess.

Veil - I really want to make my own veil and incorporate the veil my sister used in her wedding.  It was made from my grandmother's veil cap, which my aunt also wore and lace from my great grandmother's veil.  I may have two veils, one on top of the other. I found a great pattern for hand made veils.  I think it is a nice thing to have and pass on.

Invitations - We are putting together our invitations ourselves...not from a kit but by scratch. It is puzzling trying to put all the pieces together and find what goes with what but it is also gratifying.  I have found some interesting paper, pocket and envelope places online. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for decently prices pieces to put together a wedding stationary set.

Thats it for now. Off to build a mock invitation.

315 days to go.
