I got so much done today. I'm exhausted . I had the day off so I decided to knock a few things off my DIY list. Then my dad is taking an online course in photography and he was practicing so I asked him to take some nice pictures of my finished projects. Which means I finally have some decent pictures that don't come from my phone! hahah
First: I finished the flowers. I wrapped the bridesmaids' bouquets in ribbon, which will also double as the centerpieces. And I took a picture with them in the jars they'll be going in for the tables (which I had previously also wrapped in the same ribbon and lace).
I also put together the smaller flower arrangements that will go in the votive holders as centerpieces.
The pictures are missing the lanterns, but I posted those earlier, so you kind of get the idea .
Second: I finished the Emergency kits, including the little envelopes for the Tylenol and the tags. I made the envelopes on Photoshop, then printed them and glued them together.
Third: I worked on the stencil once again, this time with more success. I used the cricut and my computer to make a mock stencil with cardstock and then painted a piece of fabric with some spray food coloring. The image came out much clearer when using a large stencil, even though I didn't glue the stencil on to the fabric. I also decided that I'll be using one of the cartridges I already have rather than spending more money and buying a new one which I'll never use again. I'm waiting for a nice day to finally be able to go outside and try a real one with paint. I think they'll look pretty awesome
I'm feeling accomplished
Updates on other things:
I'm starting to freak out about shoes. I've gone to a few different places and no one has much selection. Correction, much selection on mid-size heels. I love the look of super high ones but I know I'll be in pain within the first half an hour and I want to enjoy my night. I hope that all of the summer stuff is not out yet and there's still more to come.
Then comes my next problem, no one ever has my size. I'm not kidding guys, just this winter I've been able to replace my winter boots...after a year of searching for some place that would have my size . I'm a 5, which means many shoes are not even made that small, or they bring like one pair and unless you're at the store the day they get them in, good luck finding them, especially if they're pretty. It's actually been to the point sometimes that I want to cry and give up on ever finding shoes again hahah.
One of Juan's friends is ready to book! yay!! He's thinking of staying at our hotel, which is great. He asked for a quote, and my TA told him $2000 for double occupancy. Of course now he's kicking himself for letting another friend convince him that they'd find something cheaper close to the date instead of booking with our group. Now the friend backed out and he's left with super high prices. Oh well, nothing we can do as we warned him before but I hope he still comes, even if it's to another hotel. I know it would make Juan very happy.
