Harley Wedding

Recently a friend asked me, along with a couple of other friends, if we would help her make decorations for a Harley Davidson wedding.  Of course I said YES.  My crafty hands have been idle way too long and I looked forward to some creative girlfriend time.  Here are some pics of what we created.

Aren't these large flowers cool?!!  Carla found a couple of youtube videos and customized them to fit her design ideas.

I didn't get a good picture of the medallions, but you can kinda see them in the picture below.

We wrapped the tree in tulle and added a bow.

The bride and groom's table.  I love the little touches of light Carla added.

The chairs needed a little something extra, so Carla & put our heads together to come up with this.

The finishing touch was the Harley banner and balloons.

We had nothing to do with the cake, but it was too cool not to share with y'all!

A tiny confession here.  I was so into decorating that I forgot to make/bring a wedding card.  Oops!  I'll have to mail it or give it to them in person.  You can tell I am really out of the cardmaking loop because the card is usually my first priority.


New Release from Catherine Pooler Designs

Hello my crafty friends!  I know I've been a bit quiet on my blog lately.  The Spring of my son's Senior Year in high school and my new Rodan + Fields business are keeping me hopping.  I'm looking forward to the slower pace of summer coming, and getting some more craft time in. 

I wanted to pop on my blog to let you know that Catherine Pooler Designs has a new release out and it includes a couple of BRAND NEW inks (hello Purple) and a couple of inks that were only available in previous Stamp Of Approval collections.  Just to make it extra fun they've thrown in a few stamps, dies and other goodies to get your creative juices flowing!

Last weekend I helped a friend with a few paper craft items for a wedding she was coordinating.  We made HUGE paper flowers and some fun medallions.  I'll try to add them to a post later this week to show you.   Thanks for sticking with me.  I can honestly say I miss my crafty blogland friends.  <3  *that's you!*
