Shame on me...

For being MIA for the past few days! No excuses, but Pepe and I had such a fun weekend together that I took a small break from all the wedding planning. Between Virginia Tech winning the ACC Championship, a trip to Home Depot, the shooting range to break in pepe's new "piece" as he calls it, brunch at our favorite restaurant, 2 movies, making sugar cookies, homemade icing and decorating them all ourselves, there truly wasn't much time left for anything else. :)

HOWEVER, I ordered everything for my very first DIY project! YAY!!!
I figured I should start small so I'm going to customize matchboxes. We aren't sure yet if we will be able to use sparklers (the reception venue may not allow them) for our exit but if so I'll definitely be placing these by the sparklers which I also plan to customize on my own, but if not I'll still be placing them at the bar for any smokers present.

These are the items I ordered. Stay tuned for the finished result! :)

  1. it's funny, as i'm reading through your posts your wedding sounds alot like my wedding! i can't wait to start our DIY projects - we're doing the matchboxes as escort cards though. still trying to figure out how to tie that element in : )
