I have an affinity for paper flowers. They make nice wedding favor decorations, centerpieces, and it will become something that you can display in your home after the wedding.

I have been to way to many weddings where the day after things just get dumped into the trash. Oh, how wonderful would this be as a headboard or even as a wall hanging.

One reason for DIY’ing my wedding is that many of the decorations will be reused in my home decor instead of sitting in a box gathering dust in the attic.

I hope you find some inspiration in this and wishing you all the best. Goodnight.

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)

I carry your heart with me(I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

One of the poems I am considering for my vows. A little long but expresses how I feel so well. So it is a toss-up between this one and one by John Rossmini. I will post that one tomorrow.

I also plan to make some typographical art to hang from the trees at the ceremony location. Maybe this quote and a couple of others on rice paper in random old frames.

Tell me what you think? I’d love to hear from you.

What to do, What to do?

23 May

I am working towards a tentative wedding date of May 15th 2013. As a bride on less than a shoestring budget, well I decided to do everything (almost everything) myself. So over the next year I will be searching the web for inspiration, projects, and inexpensive ways to have the day I always wanted without going into debt.
Wish me luck. I think I am going to need it.
