Things I did for my wedding....

I had several ideas I wanted to use in my own wedding, so I just wanted to share with you all what I eventually ended up doing, so when your day comes, maybe you will want to do something similar for your wedding.

First picture shows some placecard holders I made. I asked a woodworker to help me make the wooden blocks. I asked him to make each cube have a slanted kerf in it so the placecards would stand when set in the cubes.  I then bought some strong glue that you can use on wood, and I bought some stones off ebay to glue on the front of the cubes and TADA....It was as easy as that.  I had placecard holders! Super easy, and they ended up looking great.

I also came up with my own idea for the favors in our wedding too.  Again I started out by ordering the plastic containers from Ebay, and got a great price on 200 of them. Shahanna came over and helped me assemble some of the plastic containers (it was a pretty tedious task, so I am super glad she helped!) Then I purchased the ribbon both online and in the store, Micheals.  I waited till last minute to purchase the final touches. I found some taffy at Wegmans that was the PERFECT shade for the wedding, so I talked to the Bulk Ordering Manager there, and I got TONS of taffy to fill all the favors. The final touch to the favors were these silver round tags that simply said Thank You, I thought they were so cute, so I went back to Micheals, and bought the tags from there also.  All in all, it was a lot of work, but both my family and friends helped, so that was nice. I find that I enjoy things like this, so I look forward to the next big event, so I can try to make something else. :)

It's a quote kind of day!

"I think it is so important to love without conditions and to be thankful for all the beautiful people we are blessed with in our lives. Make everyday count, with the people who really matter in your life."

 Here are some more quotes that have caught my eye here recently....

"You never leave someone behind, you take a part of them with you and leave a part of yourself behind."-Unknown.

"Never allow someone to be your priority while you're just their option."

"I think that the only reason people hold onto memories so tight is because memories are the only things that dont change; when everybody else does."

"I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry."

"Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose."
-Kevin Arnold

"Cherish your yesterdays, dream your tomorrows and live your todays." -Anonymous

$1 Embroidery all this month!!! New FALL catalog is out too!

You are able to purchase from the new Thirty One Gifts Fall Catalog as of yesterday!! Can't wait to place my first order!!!!! I have a nice little list made up already of stuff I want to get this fall/winter.

For the whole month of August, you get embroidery for only $1!!!!!!!!!  That's an awesome deal, I love when Thirty One gifts discounts on this, because it's such a great deal! :)

If you want to pay some additional shipping, you can order a product from my website and have them ship it right to your house. If  you want to just order a purse, and save a little $$$$ by ordering from the party I have open on my webpage, you can do that too. By doing that, you will pay less for shipping, because when I place an order,  I do one big order, so it makes the shipping cost a little smaller.

They have some great new prints too this fall! :) 

Click here to go right to my page!

You can click here to go to the Fall Catalog, so you can browse through it! :)

Remember, personalizing is ONLY $1!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

Our honeymoon!!

Just wanted to share a couple pics from the honeymoon.  I have been MIA here recently, but now that the wedding is over, and I have caught myself up on a lot at work, you will see a lot more posts from me! :) Anyways, here are the pics! :) We had a great time. We went on a Royal Caribbean Cruise to 2 islands in the Bahamas. Scott and I are STILL peeling, we got just a little burnt.  We both went para sailing and snorkeling for the first time. I loved it! We also went and looked around Atlantis, it's a beautiful hotel. Scott and I want to stay there, ONE DAY, LOL. The food on the cruise ship was awesome! :) We will definitely be taking many cruises in our future!
