Remember Me?






Goodness! It's been a while since I've posted. I've been pretty caught up in finishing some wedding favors. You all know how that is!

This bride rocks! Of the 20+ samples that I took to her, plus a little notebook full of ideas, she liked and chose the easiest two of all.

The DP she chose was a double sided satin stripe by Reminisce. As you all know, I live in a very rural area - no Michael's, Hobby Lobby's, etc., within 65 miles, to find this paper. I got on-line, and went directly to Reminisce. OMG, talk about nice people! I dealt Meagan, who rocked my world! Not only did she let me order an odd number of sheets, but she sent them FedEx so that they'd be here in time! AND...there were a few extra sheets in the box!

Shown above, is what is leaving the house today, so that I can begin working on my next project - an Elmo Birthday Party for a soon to be 2 year old! Anyone with any wonderful Elmo projects, please let me know, as I'm open to suggestions!!! I will post photos of the favors up close after Saturday's wedding. PLEASE ignore my messy desk!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I'll have some time today to do some blog hopping - I've missed you!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Hello Patti! Wow hon you have had tons of things to do!!! Looks like you finished them up just fine and were blessed the bride took some of the easier patterns! I have done a few weddings (programs, favors, invites) myself and know how much work is involved. I am sure the bride is going to be very happy with your work! Hope you have been staying cool!

You are a better woman then I am! Can't wait to see these up close! Isn't Elmo's head a scalloped oval turned sideways and graduated circle punches for eyes? Ohhhh he will be soooo cute! Glad you had a good person to deal with. That really helps make a project more appealing.

Shirley said...

Okay, now I am in awe! I can't imagine doing what you do!!! Not only are you an artist, but you must have the patience of Job when dealing with people about this type of thing. I dream of Bridezilla. LOLOL
