Wedding Projects

Okay, folks!!!! Here are some wedding project posts. I'm so excited about doing stuff like this. I totally get my creative from my Momma. I am so happy when I'm thinking about doing stuff and then actually seeing it come to fruition. One of the projects that I've been working on (and still working on) are these little packets of tissues that are called "Tears of Joy" packets. These are for the guests at the wedding and the tears that they shed in complete joy at the sight of these two people getting married and the obvious love they have each for other!!!! Well, maybe they won't be doing that, but it's a fun project for me to do. =)

I first saw these packets on Bee and Patrick's website, which you can find here. I also purchased a monogram design from Invitations by Emily and I knew that I wanted to use on anything I could. Soooooooooooooooooooo, I purchased some glassine envelopes, got my travel-size kleenexes, then figured out how I could use the monogram, and created the bad boys seen at the top of this post.

How cool are those 'Tears of Joy' packets?!?! The stickers on the top are one of the coolest that I thought of! I sized the monogram down to 30% and then arranged 12 of them on white cardstock, printed them off, ran them through the Xyron sticker maker (coolest thing ever!), and then cut them into neat squares, and then peeled them off and stuck them on. How's that for easy? Plus, they fit with our color scheme and it was a project that I could do right now.

Wedding Website

For real?!? It's been almost a month since I last blogged. What's my deal?!? Obviously, I'm one of those people that forgets about things if they are not right in front of them, so I'm going to make some reminders to update this blog on a regular basis.

Right now we have a lot going on! Micah and I are working on wedding plans--finalizing guest lists, deciding decor, etc., I'm finishing up my 8th year of teaching (yikes!), I'm cleaning out/organizing/redecorating the house, and I'm also reorganizing/cleaning out/decorating my classrooms at school. Whew! Just typing that whole list makes me tired!

Micah and I decided in the last few weeks that when we get married, we are going to live in Conway. Those of you who know Micah, know that he lives in El Dorado, which is 2 1/2 hours south of Conway. Well, we had been going back and forth and weighing the pros and cons of moving to El Dorado or moving to Conway. Unbeknownst to me, Micah came up with a plan that will involve him commuting (is that possible so far away?) from El Dorado to Conway. We will live in my house that I've had for about 6 years and we will be based, as a family (I love being able to write that!), out of Conway. The way his schedule works allows him to be off for a few days and then back on. He came up with this plan and is wiling to try it out. I'm going to let him, even though my heart stops every time I think about him driving so much. So, out of my immense love for him, I'm cleaning out the house and redecorating it so we can 'move' into a new house. I am living there now (duh! It's my house!), but he is not going to be living there until January, so I'm doing what I can to make sure that it's a bit different, more special, and feels like 'us'. (I realize that the house will be totally special even if I didn't do anything to change it because Micah will be getting to spend everyday with me and my fabulousness that just is! =))

This summer I'm really working on my school classrooms so this next school is a breeze to plan! I know that I'm going to spazz out sometimes (all the time?!?) with work and wedding planning, but I know that if I'm proactive with deciding things and doing what I can ahead of time, it's all going to be good. Plus, in the end I'm really just happy about being Mrs. Micah Fullerton. That will be totally awesome! All the other stressful, not fun things will fade away and the most important thing we will have is our love for each other and the committment we make in front of our friends and family.

I'll be back soon (I really promise!) with some projects I've been working on and checking off my lists!
