Wedding Wednesday +1: Stationary!!

I love stationary! I'm a big of rearranging things, and stationary gives me the chance to organize on paper, yay!

I was adament about not doing save the dates. Our wedding guest list is family and close friends, and I didn't think they really need one since I talk to them about the wedding a lot. Bless them. But one drama after another led to us having to do them. I ordered these beauties from Wedding Paper Divas:

Aren't they adorable?! I love them! And best of all, they have a STRIPE!!! You will begin to see stripes over and over again in these posts :)

Now, for the wedding invites. I looked all the "big" sites, but I couldn't find the right one. Then it hit me -- my friend Kyra over at Bliss Papers is absolutely fabulous at creating stationary for any occasion, and best of all, she works with her clients to create something completely original. We've been working for a bit on our invites, and they are getting close to final. I'll be sure to post a finished copy! Be sure to check out her site, and you can also follow along her projects with her blog as well.

Bad Blogger!

I apologize for the lack of updates!! Things have gotten crazy, both at work and at home, leaving me very little time for the finer things in life....laying around, watching TV, blogging, etc.

But, lucky you, I have a four hour conference call this morning AND can't open any Office document do to my 2007 install (wow, we are really with the times), so I'm hoping for LOTS of updates today.

Wedding Wednesday: Photography!

Our photographers for the wedding are John and Joslyn Crowe of Crowe's Eye Photography. They were our only good find out of a bridal show!! They were so sweet and nice, we just had to sit down with them. And once we checked out their work we were in love with them! Joslyn has been fabulous to work with, too--I would have been lost planning our wedding day timeline without her.

Right now, I'm working on a list of "must have" shots for the wedding. I've been checking out other photographer's blogs and saving pics that I love to show to Joslyn and John. Many of the pictures are copyrighted, so I can't post them on my blog, but I'd love to get a link to some of your favorite photography blogs for more ideas. Here are some of my favorites:

Bungalow Tour

So my camera is acting weird, hence my lack of posting. I'll try to make do with some pictures I have stored online. Here are some changes we made to the Bungalow when we moved in:

Living Room

<-- Before

(the red isn't this bright!)

Dining Room
<-- Before
(the red looks better here!)

Yes, we made painted over the red dining room and then made the living room red. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I like it like this!
Master Bedroom

<--- Before
After --->

This is my favorite place in the house :). It took forever to paint the stripes, but it was so worth it. I can't wait to finish this with some new curtains (these were originally in the dining room).
