Speaking of crafts, I was about to renounce crafting altogether by the time the wedding got here. Sure, at the time it sounds like a GREAT idea to make things for the reception. And, with the internet being so in-your-face (Pinterest, anybody?) with great ideas, I started many projects that involved glue and dexterity. Neither of which is fun after awhile. But, everything of course came out gorgeous, and you know I'm going to flaunt it...
The good - Thumb print tree from Mom! She's a fabulous artist, and I recruited her to do this part for me. She painted an empty tree, and we gave the guests ink pads to put leaves on it and sharpees to sign their name. Now, I just have to frame it. Love it!
The obnoxious - "I'll just glue on two little leaves, their name, and their table number"... way more annoying than it sounds. 75 guests means 150 leaves, 75 names, 75 table numbers... this is 300 tiny pieces to glue. Not counting CUTTING OUT 150 LITTLE LEAVES BY HAND. Why do I do this to myself? There are stamps to cut out little leaves, why didn't I decide to do it that way? Live and learn. They came out cute though.

Alright... I'm going to go make an amazing dinner for my Husband, and then it's back to the knitting for some new Free Pattern Fridays! I'll see you the first Friday of November!
