Wedding Wednesday: Save the Date Cards

Chris and I are in full wedding planning mode.

After he proposed, we got off to a bit of a slow start; we had so many ideas it was hard to narrow it all down to one cohesive plan. It's not often you get an excuse to plan such a big party so we both want it to be the best party we could possibly throw!

But over the last few months, things have started to come together. We set a date, booked a venue, started our guestlist, interviewed photographers and commenced work on some of the decorations.

Now that we've got the ball rolling,I thought it would be good to blog about our progress. Not only will it give me an opportunity to share our diy projects, but it will hopefully also help keep me on track.

So, without further ado, I give you the very first Wedding Wednesday* post:

Save the Date Cards
Our plan was to send out Save the Dates as our holiday cards this year, so the pressure was on to come up with something at least as awesome as last year's mechanical iris cards.


Everyone's a Winner

January's Spins and Needles event was a lot of fun! Pressed is a great venue for that sort of thing and this month's project was the perfect combination of easy and awesome.

Chris wasn't able to make it because he wasn't feeling well, so I made him his own felt pennant to cheer him up.

We're in a book!

Look what came in the mail today!

It's The Big Book of Hacks from Popular Science and one of our projects is in it. The bed we built in the back of Bertha, and later rebuilt for Sally, is project #238.

You can find the original instructions and all the photos, with significantly fewer armadillos (unfortunately), over on instructables.

Zombie Movie Marathon 2013

Happy New Year!

We're celebrating with our third annual New Year's Day Zombie Movie Marathon

Some of our friends have missed out in past years since they scare easily and don't enjoy horror films, so this year we made a point of including non-scary movies early in the line up.
