      I agree. That is something I haven't heard of. I will keep the idea in mind. Thanks!

              I've been a busy bee the last while, and here's some of the fruit of my labour :)

               

              Bridesmaid Goodie Bags

              This one is for my "coral" bridesmaid, the other 2 are magenta and turquoise

               

              -colour coordinated pashmina

              -makeup remover wipes

              -travel sewing kit (needles, thread for their dress, pins, scissors, safety pins)

              -sleep mask

              -mango facial pouch

              -hand sanitizer

              -body lotion

              Yay! the world still exists - it would've really sucked to have done all this planning for nothing! :D

                I made the Sewing Kit bags myself

                 

                I got these little cotton bags from Creative Bag for about $0.70 each,

                and acrylic paint from Walmart $2 ea (which I also used for a bunch of other stuff)

                Then I painted them with the corresponding colour and filled them with goodies

                -pins, needles and safety pins from Dollarama

                -mini scissors from Zellers (clearance!)

                -spool of thread from Fabricland

                 

                I made one for me too :) My mom saw them, and now she wants me to make her one LOL


                23 days and counting until "We Do" in the beautiful Riviera Maya!

                  My girls and I wanted to do something kind of fun and silly for some of the pictures, so I bought us parasols and then painted theirs (there's those acrylic paints again!)

                   

                  They are good quality paper parasols. I got my white one from Creative Bag, and then 3 white ones for the girls at a wholesale shop for $3 each.

                  I used a sponge brush, and thinned the paint out with water so light will still shine through. I also painted the insides, but it's more of a wash (mixed even more water with the paint) just so the insides weren't white (although the darker colours showed through fairly well)

                  Then hung them to dry. I also painted the top plastic cap with full-strength paint.


                  23 days and counting until "We Do" in the beautiful Riviera Maya!
