Happy Almost Heart Day!

I'm usually such a scrooge when it comes to Valentine's day, but this year I've gone all out. I was up until midnight last night making button flowers and cards for all the teachers who work for me (I direct a small child dev. center). The flowers are pins that are just stuck through the card. Everyone's running around the center wearing their flowers today.

I love it!

And as promised here are the lovelies from East Side Bride in all their gold-leafed glory:

Thank you First Milk for putting together the swap! I can't wait until next year!

Don't divorce my friends...

I'm famous

Mary Sledd, my best friend and wedding photographer extraordinaire was featured Tribeza for her lovely wedding in October, for which I was the maid of honor. It never occurred to me that I might make the cut. But here I am...in all my bridesmaid glory...looking slightly cranky.

Wally Byam is my hero

D has been working like a crazy person lately so we took the afternoon last Saturday and drove to San Antonio where my parents were attending a Vintage Airstream Rally. It's a cult, really, those Airstream people...and I hope to someday be one of them.

This is my parents Airstream, with my little silver car behind it and Dad's big silver truck in front of it.

We're actually planning to use the Airstream for dressing on the wedding day. Since the wedding will be held on a camp ground, the parents have agreed to park their for the night/day so we can store stuff there on Friday night and can finish getting dressed there on Saturday. Consider it a super mobile bride's room. I'm hoping to get some neat photo's featuring the Airstream on the day of.

My dad was very excited to show me his new toy: a dragon for the tow post thingy (technical term). A scary dragon at that. No one's going to mess with his Airstream. I guess I'll have to start calling him St. George.

Other than that wedding planning has kind of hit a lull at the moment. We've done most of what we can for the time being. The paper I want to use for the invitations is half price this week so I suspect a craft trip will come soon. Until then I'll keep making valentines with leftover fabric samples and buttons.
