Wedding favors...

This week my mom and I have been busy making prototypes of the tags that will be on the candy boxes (for the candy table we're having for the wedding favors). This is the one I like the best. I bought that super fun scalloped punch from Country Needleworks here in town, and even if I don't end up using it for this, I will definitely use it later.

You also may have noticed that the stamp I used here is not the stamp I originally was going to use. Unfortunately, through the chaos of packing and unpacking, I have absolutely no idea where I put it so I had to order a new stamp. I love this one too though so it's really a win-win situation. :)

The random mid-May post

Hello folks. Long time no post!

I don't have much to post at the moment, but thought I'd share a few random tidbits with you. First - these little Swedish baby booties I made for my nephew:

And they are reversible! But, I'm sad to say that I only made 1 booty because by the time I finished it he had outgrown it. I still think it's pretty cute though.

Second item of business, this cross stitch piece my grandma has at her house, I love it. It reminds me of my grandma. I've been super into cross stitch these days, my mom found some of her old kits that she bought but never made so I've been plugging away at them. I'll post my progress one of these days.

Does anyone know where you can find a stamped cross stitch kit (that's a cute pattern? I love the old samplers but can't find any!!)? I can't find one for the life of me, and I'm usually pretty good at finding craft supplies. Hmmm...

And lastly, I'm getting married in one month to this handsome guy - woah baby!
