Wedding Crafting

It's finally happening! In December, Dale and I decided to get married. It's been seven years since we engaged. I'm not unhappy we waited, but it's about darned time! So naturally, most of what's going into decorating for the wedding is hand crafted. Theresa and I have been hard at work sewing bunting (and getting friends to help us out!), making wedding favors, hair pieces for the bridesmaids, adding special touches to my dress, making invitations, and making jewelry, among many other things. Though there is much more to go, I fished hair pieces and invitations labels designing today. This was the first time I've used feathers and vintage millinery flowers and I had a lot of fun working with both together. The hair pieces came out wonderful. The grander scheme of Victorian-styled little hats with feathers and flowers was a bit too much for me to tackle at the moment as research on hat making is going to be a must for a project like that. Dexter even helped me model one. I think the ladies are going to look so lovely in them, don't you?

Happy Crafting!
