    Hey Everyone...thought I'd share some pics of the projects that my wonderful bridesmaids, my MOH, and my MOB and I completed last Saturday! My MOB hosted us for a lovely brunch at her place and we were we ever busy!

    We tackled a few projects before eating and then once everyone was losing their energy we had brunch, mimosas and we were ready to DIY some more!

    Here's what we worked on:

    Packing and Assembling my OOT Bags -

    We made Wedding Week Survival Kits which included:
    - Personalized Chapstick - Sam's Club
    - Advil - 11 liquid gels - Big Bottle from Sam's Club
    - Imodium - 6 - Big Bottle from Sam's Club
    - Lens Cleaning Clothes - Dollar Rama - 20 wipes for $1
    - Toothpaste - free from my gym (took 30 for my OOT bags)
    - Hand Sanitizer - Bath and Body Works - $1
    - Tissue - Dollar Store - 10 for $1
    - Lotion Packs - free trial size from my gym (I took 100!)
    - Bandaids - a variety of sizes (COSTCO)

    We also included a stationary kit in each bag...most of these things came "free" from VISTA! I went a little VISTA nuts!
    - 3 postcards
    - Personalized Notepad
    - Personalized Sticky Notes
    - Punta Cana Pen
    - Punta Cana Keychain
    - Calendar Magnet
    - Bookmarks
    - Photoshare Card

    The girls helped me to fill the ziplocs then we added other snacks, toys, a body puff and our mugs! The girls attached our thank you card (an oversized VISTA postcard to the bag with ribbon)

    To be continued! :)

      (Zach was loving the all girls day...he got lots of love!)

      Our next project was wrapping the pashminas in ribbon...I still need to attach the "To Have and To Hold Labels" (forgot the glue gun!)

      Then we tied ribbon around the bubbles I bought from Dollar Giant...they were 9 for $1!!

      Then we were onto the fans...I bought the Raffia fans from OTC and ribbon from Michael's. I printed our programs through VISTA and I think they turned out super! I used glue dots to attach the ribbon and the programs (they will be easy to take off after the wedding).

      I highly recommend recruiting some friends for a day like this! I can't believe how much we got accomplished!

        Wow! You have so much done! I'm guessing getting everyone together for a DIY day beats doing it yourself, like I've been doing!
