I am all about saving money, that is probably apparent throughout my blog. So, when it comes to things like table numbers for the wedding, I wanted to spend little to nothing-and I succeeded! Adam and I went for a walk and found a few logs/sticks. We carried them back to the house, and Adam cut them into slices. I finished each of them off by using a permanent marker to write the numbers, and then a quick layer of mod podge for protection. Done and done, folks. Plain wooden slices retail from about $1.99 – $2.99 each.
While this is my “House” blog, I also love crafting, so you will have to excuse me for a moment as I take a home improvements break to present you with some wedding-related crafting. I am getting married next August, and like many brides these days, am following the trend of “rustic” wedding. It works for Adam and I because we are not overly formal people and have spent a lot of time together hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. I wanted to do something special for my bridesmaids when asking each of them to be in the wedding, so I made them each a clothespin doll. This idea is not original, and I stumbled across it when using my favorite tool–google. I was so pleased with the final product, the I just “had” to make one of myself, the bride. Enjoy!
