Pinterest and I have a very strong love/hate relationship. I love that Pinterest has so many great ideas on it. I love that I can waste an entire day pinning things I will never do but think that I might one day. I love that Pinterest inspires me to be creative. I hate Pinterest for all the same reasons. I started my wedding board exactly 5 minutes after Mark proposed and I keep adding things to it every.single.day. Our wedding is in 25 days and I still call my mom almost every day and say
“I saw this really great ____________ on Pinterest today. I think it will only take us a few hours to craft and I neeeeeed to have it on May 10th.”
She sighs deeply but knows that she won’t win the battle of convincing me I do not need yet another Pinterest project on my plate. And so the list keeps growing. My mother has been a saint during all this wedding planning. She has basically put her life on hold for the last year to help me with all the planning- Sorry Dad! She spends all her days off going to appointments, surfing Pinterest and helping me craft. Some days we get a lot of stuff done. Some days we don’t. I literally could not have done this without her. THANKS MOM!
On the … short … list of things we have crafted for this wedding:
- table runners
- table numbers
- cake stands
- card box
- pallet signs
- succulent “J”
- “LOVE” marquee sign
- wine bottle glasses
- drink stirrers
- wood plank centerpieces
- photo booth props
- various little decorations pieces here and there
- a candy bar
- place cards
- directional signs
Without giving too much away, here is a little collage of some of the above items. I simply cannot wait until May 10th to see it all come together. Thank you again Mom for all the hard work you’ve put into this wedding!!!!
