Re-Start on the Blog!

Hello! It's been a very long time since I've been on the blog. A lot has happened in two years but I won't bore you with past details.
The newest detail that I will catch you up on is that Bri & Lance have a date for a wedding!! They'll be married here in Houston on July 14th!! Lance proposed in the most hilarious way on February 24th. THE ring is gorgeous!! Plans are moving at a very fast pace around here. The gown was chosen about 6 weeks ago, bridesmaids' gowns too. The venue was picked before the gown! Bri & Lance will be the first couple to marry at Mia Bella Vita in Tomball. I had already designed their invitations about a year ago. We just perfected it a smidge. Those are made & went in the mail yesterday. Woohooooo!!!
Here they all are ready to be sealed and put in the mail. I watercolored 3 butterflies per invitation. I also made the shower invitations & thank you notes for them. I'm now working on paper flower cones for the ceremony. My Cricut machine (THANKS Wanda Dodd!!) has worked double time cutting butterflies!! I cut 280 white butterflies with my machine on Sunday to create a special decoration for the ceremony.

The 280 glued together to create 140 dimensional butterflies. This pic shows about 70 of them finished.

I can't wait to be able to post pics of everything put together!! After the wedding I'll be allowed to post all I want to of the items created for the event.

For now I'm off to stamp more yellow butterflies on yellow paper for the paper cones!!
