1. On Tuesday, we hit 10,000 page views!
2. Yesterday was the 3-month mark until the wedding! It's crazy to think that June is only 3 months away, but I better get used to it!
Since this week is Spring Break for me, I went to the District Court's office on Monday and applied for our wedding license. I don't know if it's the same in other states, but I went back on Friday to pick it up after our 3-day waiting period.
3. I managed to complete our aisle runner!
(The C is blue, but the picture makes in kind of hard to tell)
At that point, I was sick of painting and put all my supplies away (and the remainder of the aisle runner up high and out of kitty reach). I decided to tackle the project again about a month ago when we had a slew of snow days. Adam and I went over to the church and measured the length of the aisle to make sure that we had enough fabric left, decided where we wanted the logo to be positioned (it's going to be up by where we stand), and then cut it to size. This time I was extra careful: locking the cat away in the other room if I was going to leave the house for a little, making sure it had enough time to dry so that I could put it in the spare room overnight, and keeping a keen eye on the cat anytime he was wandering around.
My efforts turned out to be well-founded and we now have another item checked off this to-do list. To store it, I covered the painted area with wax paper and rolled it back up together where it will safely wait for its debut high up in the closet.
I'm not going to make a tutorial for this one since I basically did on the first post, but check there if you're wondering how it all went down (or at this blog which is where I originally got the idea and has a great tutorial). Basically, print a template, trace it in pencil on the aisle runner, put down wax paper on your work area and paint using acrylic paint (and have a variety of paintbrushes). And have patience. I would work in one direction, let it dry and then come back and work on the other side of the outline of letter.
4. I found this Pinterest user: Labels @worldlabel.com! I actually ran across their blog and they share tons of free label templates. I have had the hardest time finding free vector images and templates like this so it will be a great asset. They are basically a company that sells printable labels, but they share so much free stuff, it is awesome!
And I guess we'll call it a wrap for this blog post. If I ever get these wedding invitations finalized then I can share them!
Do you have any exclamation point-worthy tidbits to share? Do it!
