DiY Wedding Prep

I haven't been a very good blogger lately and this is why hahaha....................
Flower girls' getup ❤ #bbgetnhitched
Flower girl baskets and flower girl dresses by little ticket on etsy! I am SO in love with them! 
Making the ring bearer ring pillows (2! 1 for Eli and 1 for Robbie my little cousin ) ❤ #bbgetnhitched
I'm making the 2 ring bearer pillows! 
I embroidered our B's in red and made them into small pillows.
The back fabric is 1930's (reproduction) circus print!
Should I make it so the pillow is pinned in the middle? Or leave it puffy?
Clip on bow ties for the ring bearers (or in Eli's case, the ring bear-he asked if he could be a bear, @oliveoh is making the bear ears haha!) our wedding really is gonna be a circus like most if our family events haha
Teeny tiny bow ties for the ring bearers, Mickey, Curtis, and Danny! 
See here's Mick sport'n his! He won't actually be at the wedding
 (I'd be too worried about him-he is my baby)!
So after the wedding ill be opening my own circus, you all are invited  I'm so sleepy
Made the flower girls' "flowers" which is actually handmade star confetti. 
I made signs for the CAKE and PIE. Oh and Circus of Love ;) 
Turned out better than I thought!!  No pie emoji!  #bbgetnhitched #pie
I've been saving all the coke glasses, these are from Lo's bday ha! Cotton candies galore, probably have to get more before the wedding hahaha! And I got a bunch of those glass things to make a carnie game for the kiddos  fill em w color water then they t
Making little carnival games for the kids! 
I still need to put together the cotton candy cart and test it of course ;)
I found a few of these at the fleamarket today! Completely perfect! ❤ #bbgetnhitched

Our Circus Poster Wedding Invitations!

Now that our family and friends have recieved their invitations, I thought I'd share them with you!
We made circus poster wedding invitations! :)
I say "we" because it took a village! ;) We had a friend do the design layout, then I took all his fancy design elements and made the RSVP & tickets, the fellows at work (Sonic Print) did all the printing, cutting, and perfing, and Lauren and Olivia helped me assemble all the invitations! haha!
Thank you ALL so much! 
our wedding invites
I am very very lucky to have access to a full print shop haha I count my lucky stars everyday! 
You see in the middle of the invite where it reads, "GOOBLE GOBBLE" I'll give you a huge hug if you know where that's from and why it's on there! :) 
You can find out here (it's one of my favorite movies).
our wedding invites
You can read all about the paper Beck and Bri here
our wedding invites
These were the RSVP cards, which had a removable card our family and friends could keep! 
our wedding invites
The confetti stars were Eli's idea-how could I say no?! Plus they went pretty perfectly!
our wedding invites
Made my own stamps after going to two post offices & pissing off one guy and confusing another bc I had an off amount of postage ha then those print your own stamps place is pricey!
I had 2 different difficult trips to the postoffice trying to get pretty or interesting postage, well that was a flop. No comprendo!
So I made my own!
I just printed the double B's on sticker paper, then I ran it through the pitney bowes machine.
Papercraft'n for our invites! ❤
So here's a bit more of the DIY part!
I saw some paper lace on etsy awhile back and really like it. Our invites didn't really go with lace, so I found a paper punch I liked at Jo-Ann's (of course used my 40% off coupon to buy it). So I punched out a bunch of red piece I wanted to use to wrap around the posters to keep them closed. The next day (forgetting the difficult of the punch) I whined to Lauren that I had carpal tunnel and but it was just my hand and wrist being sore from paper punching! hahaha
Wedding Invite DIY
The tubs we used started out brown cardboard tubs, but I couldn't send the pretty poster in a brown tub! So I painted them all! :) I LOVE the way they turned out!
We are very excited to say the least!
 It's the final countdown! ;)

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween!

I turned my boring old orange iPhone case into a Jacko'lantern! 
It's a bit wonky haha!

I took tape and made the Jacko'lantern face, then I took Essie "Licorice" and went to town! 
I let it dry for a bit longer than I would my nails ;)

Happy October!

This is THE most wonderful time of the year for me! I am just so happy October is here!
October is filled with birthdays, family get-togethers, the chance the temperature will drop under 80, and HALLOWEEN! :) Eli and I started decorating the house!
Itsy bitsy spiders
These paper spiders and the black flower wreath both came from The Paper Source. I've only been to a Paper Source store IRL once in Alexandria and it was heaven! Below is Eli's spider, note it only have one red brad thingie, Eli wanted his this way because he said it looked like a professor spider with a monocle. I LOVE that kid! hahahaha
Eli spider w a monocle
This is our spooky wreath, made spookier by Eli who wanted to add the eyeballs! I thought they were a nice touch! ;) Though our eyeball machine is now low on eyeballs! ;)
Added to our wreath w eyeballs from our eyeball machine
We bought our first bitty pumpkin. In Florida it's still SO incredible hot we can't put pumpkins outside yet. Eli must ask me everyday if we can get one and everyday I tell him we have to wait haha trust me kid I want a pumpkin too, but I DO NOT want to clean pumpkin guts up!
Get'n spooky!
Eli and I have also taken all our Monster Fighter Lego and we're making a Halloween Lego Village.
It is looking VERY awesome!  Below is the train!
Tonight I bought teeny black lights for our haunted Lego village  #lego
Oh and last night I put together this month's Scout Creative Paper Craft Calendar!
It's a Halloween totem and I LOVE it! Go download one and build it!

I am SO excited about all the fun happenings of October!!! And once October is over November will be here, along with our wedding, so this is going to be a VERY wonderful Fall!
