My craft room seems to be shrinking! Actually it is sharing space with wedding paraphernalia. In between beading pillows and other lovely things, I'm taking time to put together a bridesmaid bouquet or corsage. My first real job, at age 13, was working for a woman who created wedding bouquets and seasonal centerpieces. She taught me a lot. She also did the flowers for my wedding in 1981. She's been gone for many years now, but I am putting her lessons to good use in preparing for my own daughter's wedding in July.
I have been assigned: Flower making (we're using all silk), invitation addressing (huge box of invites are on my kitchen floor) and program creating (Please share your best ideas for these with me!)My daughter lives 3 hours away so I've also made numerous trips to the bridal shop 25 miles away. My last trip involved picking up the bride's shoes. They are a stunning purple, her favorite color. They're going to really pop peeking out from beneath her gown!
It's been busy, busy around here. Nothing makes time go by faster than preparing for a wedding! And it's all good. And it's all going to be just fine. And I'll get a massage.
