What's on your workdesk Wednesday?275

I have not been around to visit for a while since Wedding fever took over here. Many of you have followed my journey as we combined all our creative expertise to prepare for the day. I will not be able to visit you this week but thought you might like to see a few pictures of the things we made.

We made all the invitations, Order of Service, Place names, Menus and Table plan. I made hair slides for the Bridesmaids, Bride and myself. We painted signs and a screen for the photo booth, collected and created props. We made a hoopla and bean bag toss game for the gardens.

                                                  I knitted a wrap for my outfit!

                                    I helped my daughter make the cake (picture to follow)

On the day before the wedding we gathered flowers from friends gardens and the wholesaler and created button holes, bouquets and table decorations with the help of friends. We wanted them to look like they were bunches of garden flowers and they worked a treat.

                                            Then I just had to coordinate the day!

 a rare picture of me as I gave my daughter away

                                                It was simply the best day ever!

So this explains why I have been absent for a while and will be for a while longer as now off to somewhere hot to sit on the beach. I thought you would like to see and if I can get wifi I may manage to visit some of you later in the week.

If you are new to WOYWW pop over to Stamping Ground to visit a few more lovely creative spaces.

Wedding Heart

I made this picture for my Daughters wedding, it is all made from sticker and was great fun to do. I only wish I had discovered this technique before I had given away all my stickers!

I can't take credit for this brilliant idea, have a look at some of the lovely designs here
