Craft Crazy.

The things I do for love. First, a bit about this past Saturday. A beautiful backyard engagement party (first mentioned here) came together with the help of good friends. The M&S extravaganza was cuter than expected with tasty barbecue, photobooth and pretty paper flowers, handmade by Katie, Kim and posse. My world is surrounded by all things wedding and wonderful friends and I couldn't be happier.Ladies, the makeup all looks amazing and the dresses could not be more fantastic.

Today I spent the day with my good friend Clarice (who is moving this Friday to Philly. Sad face.) scouring the racks at TJ Maxx for some super wedding finds and traipsing about the craft store for ribbon and trim. Clarice, I don't know what I'm going to do without you here to tell me when things are too ugly to buy, when shoes are too fabulous to pass up or when I'm wearing too many articles of clothing in mauve (my favorite color). You are an inspiration to me and I hope you are happy in your new home! I came home and immediately started crafting. Needless to say I'm exhausted!

Here are some snapshots of work from my crafting studio, all for the wedding coming up in September. Below is a mock-up of a tree I painted for the guestbook, some empty jars I've been collecting for the past year and party favors for the bridal shower happening this Saturday. It may not look like much now, but it's all coming together!

The wedding is coming up quick and it seems that I have a million things to do and remember. Being a planner is hard work, but when I sit back each day and look and what I've made, it all seems worthwhile. This Sunday I'll be making the lovely Florence look fabulous for her big day, followed immediately by styling for an engagement shoot. I barely have time to post anything! The fun never ends!
