    I think you could organize all your documents/spreadsheets into one place and put them in a book, sell them for lots of $$ and quit your day job!
    Again, awesome!
    That would be a fun way to make a living! Thanks Sarah!

      MariaElena, I noticed on your list to bring you have a bouquet Jewel.. How are you doing to incorporate it into your bouquet? My bouquet will be green orchids and light ivory roses and I purchsed a blue starfish jewel for my "something blue) but I wasn't sure where to put it. What are your thoughts?

        You have an eye for detail! My bouquet jewel is a clear starfish. My bouquet will be hot pink roses and yellow gerber daisies. I was going to give the jewel to the florist and just tell him to make it look nice in the bouquet. I hadn't thought about it in any more detail than that. Blue for your jewel sounds like a great idea. I'm sure your florist can incorporate it in a flattering way.

          Tammy, I think one thing you could do is tie the starfish on as a charm to the ribbon around the stems of the bouquet. (If you are going to wrap the stems in ribbon?) That's the best idea I have without actually having a visual of all the pieces.
