Here are couple of ideas on how to save money when you do it yourself:
Coloring Program: For J+D’s Wedding we decided that the wedding program would serve as the coloring book for kids. So making the clipart as line art and using black and white–> the kiddos can color the program. Plus it’s very informative for the adults.
Sparkler & Little flags: Do-it-yourself and print on cardstock paper to create simple decorative paper goods. Cut to the shape you like and with a hole-punch make inserts for the sparklers or sticks (for flags).
Chalk Signs: Make your own chalk signs to save on signage plus it help direct your guest to activities.
Spray-Painted Signs: with cutout stencils and spray paint–> you can make these lovely table numbers. Place the cutout number on top of the small canvas (available at Michael’s Craft Store) and spray paint right to left (be more heavy on the left side by leaving the spray-paint longer in that area).

This is why I haven’t done the “my wedding” post. The article for this would be pages long. I told myself I wouldn’t be a bridezilla— Oh, but I was! I had 4 wedding dresses. I had two photographers. I did do it all, but I kept telling myself that that was ok because we only get to do it once. Here are some broken down wedding topics:
- Picking the right attire or DIY
- Theme Inspiration: I brought Italy to Portland
- Photos around Italy form Photographer Marco
- Reception Photos from Photographer Juan
- Rings Options
- DIY Wedding
- Numbering Tables/Seating Chart
- Guest Favors
- Personalize decor
- Entertaining Kids
Hello Friends, It’s been awhile. I finally got around to making a video on how to make a mini unicorn piñata. Enjoy!
P.S. Happy Birthday, Debbie!
I was invited to a small wedding at the court house in Astoria. A witness, the father to give her away, her sister that lived near her, and me. I wanted to make sure I captured her special moment for her to share with her kids. I took over 300+ pictures and you can only frame so many. So I decided I would make her a scrapbook she could treasure with little gems on every page.
I used many stickers, borders, rub-on, brads, and more:
- Me&My Big Ideas, Mambi Stickers,
- Jolee’s Boutique, Wedding Words,
- Imaginisce, Rub-ons
