So... guess what?!

I found a PHOTOGRAPHER (said in Oprah voice). Here is a link to her site. As you can see, she is awesome. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. Hooray!

In other news, I have started making these vintage-style flower pins with my freshly purchased vintage flower loom from Cathy of California at the Renegade Craft Fair.

I can't stop making them. It's an addiction.

Maybe I can make a whole slew of them and sew them together into a wedding gown.

Right. Wedding gown. I should really pick one of those suckers up.

my DIYish wedding (1)

I feel like I haven't posted here in 100 years.
Between cranking out earrings and necklaces (which still need to be photographed... agh!), I've been really busy with finishing up school and planning my wedding.

Here are the facts:
  • I'm getting married in September.
  • I have less than three months to pull this all together.
  • I want to incorporate as much DIY as I can feasibly handle.
  • I also want to keep it as eco-conscious as possible.
I'm not sure if I was emotionally prepared for the undertaking of wedding planning. My thoughts all along were "Why make a big deal out of it? It's one day! I'm going to keep it simple."

It is really easy to lose sight of those initial thoughts when you're in the trenches navigating the vendors, the gaudy decor and general heavy pressure of the wedding machine. For instance, I was not aware that peel and eat shrimp was tacky. I didn't realise that wedding invitations had so many moving parts. And who knew that a certain kind of chair was preferred for receptions.
Not me.

Is there a place to put my ass while I eat?

Anyway, I'm going to be posting a series called my DIYish wedding where I will share my happiness and my hell with you, gentle reader.
