I did a lot of wedding-heavy projects this weekend, including the garlands for our car.
The centerpieces are complete and the tissue paper dahlias/pom pons are ready to be puffed out and hung.

Today I wanted to stitch a flapper-style hot pink fringe to the edge of one of my favorite dresses (that I never wear). I never got out of the house to find the fringe! Tonight, I have Yoga in Sandy Springs so I was thinking of going to the craft store afterwards and stitching it up tonight.

I began cutting a white sheet of vinyl into the classic Nancy Drew silhouette from the original books. After a while, I realized that it looks a lot like the POW/MIA stickers on the back of cars (a person with a magnifying glass) and so I am trying to find out how to distinguish my Nancy. The best I can come up with is a little speech bubble that says "get a clue!" or something similar. If you have any ideas, please leave it in the comments! :)

Music: I have this odd habit of picking certain songs to go on my playlists. When I try listening to other songs on the CDs, I never like it. However, I am one of those people that can recall most lyrics/notes in songs in my head just after one listen. Sometimes I get parts of those "failed" songs stuck in my head and months and months later I will try the CD again and love it. Neko Case's Middle Cyclone has just become one of those CDs. I've had the CD since it came out in March of 2009 but other than This Tornado Loves You, I never enjoyed the rest of the CD. Until this past week. Now I can't stop listening to the CD in its entirety. Isn't it strange how creatures of habit work? The brain is a mystery.

So, I'm getting married in 13 days. I'm just about finished with all of the crafting involved in reception decor. I have my dress fitting tomorrow. I'm getting my nails all glammed up the day before the wedding. Oh yeah! AND I have my bridal shower this weekend! SO exciting!!!

Speaking of which, Albert and I went to the Cobb County Probate Court and got our marriage license this morning. We just have to sign and have grandpa sign after the ceremony and then we're husband and wife!

Even though the wedding has brought SO much unnecessary drama (and there's a million things I would have done differently had I known... like eloping?!) I am SO excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with Albert. He's the peanut butter to my jelly!

Artist of the Day:
Jean Shin

This Korean artist takes recycled materials and creates elaborate installations with them. They are SO visually entertaining!

Until tomorrow,
