This one turned out well!

Took all these polaroids and photo booth strips and put them together
in this box. Cool!

Scrap boxes

A new thing my mom and I are excited about. We found these shadow
boxes at Tuesday morning and bought a few!
This is one of my favorite bridal portraits and I thought this was a
suitable way to display it.

So the party went well...

We had a lovely time at Paul's 30th birthday party on Saturday night and we were so happy to see our good buddies and have time to nibble, chat and of course have some libations!
Here are some details...

treat bags included photos of guests with Paul
homemade cake AND pie for dessert
Paul with Andrew and Nathalie

The big moment

It was fun!

what am I gonna wear for the party?

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

So easy!

The construction of this dress involves two pieces of fabric, and 4 seams. I used a pattern and just skipped all the tricky little extras. Since I used jersey, I don't have to worry about fraying. Now I have a lovely little T-shirt dress, ripe for accessorizing!

There's a party coming!
