WOYWW 209 - post crop

Tsk.


After all the excitement of the weekend, I forgot to set up my WOYWW for this week! (For deets, go here).  Last night when I should have been scheduling a post for today, I was busy working on wedding things in Photoshop.  Silly me… hehehehe
 
Well, the Crop was amazing, but you’ll have seen Julia’s and LLJ’s photos by now at least, if not the myriad of others by Kyla and H and…. so I won’t bore you with mine.  Not that I have any to show you this week – they’re all still in the camera! 
My desk this week is a teensy bit different.  Some new RUBs that I’ve not found a home for/decided what’s going in them.  Cutouts in card for our wedding favour boxes (guess what’s happening in my house this weekend…. a marathon box-fest).  General stuff and stash as per usual.
The bouquets are coming along by leaps and bounds.  I forgot to get a picture of Doone’s hard work; at the weekend she hand stitched the ribbons on most of my buttonholes while Flo and I made more flowers.  (Sterling job Doone & Flo, thanks!)  At the Big Crop I sat/stood/meandered whilst making more flowers and I think all the lovely attendees made at least one each.  Thank you ladies!  It’s so nice knowing that a little part of all my friends will be so close to me on the big day.  Soppy, I know, but it’s still nice.  The bouquets are not quite finished yet, but are definitely on their way and are starting to quite literally take shape.
 
Between the pair of them, Doone & Flo have finally inveigled me into joining Collabor-art, basing their efforts on the fact that I should have more time on my hands come late August, and will therefore be able to join in occasionally.  Ulp.  Been a long while since I last did any proper arty stuff!  Here we go – feet first………
See you on the hop!

have fun with Collabor-art, I have seen people taking part... the button bouquets are such an unusual and wonderful idea.
Hope you get to download your pics soon, I'd love to see them!

Happy WOYWW day to you Morti.
You are not being sloppy. I kinda think it is nice that you let us have a go at making flowers as I feel a little part of me (inc skin where the wire bit me) will be there sharing your Day with you.
Cannot wait to see pictures soon after the day.
Hugs

The bouquets looks absolutely stunning (more so IRL to be fair) and hope you let me know if your soon-to-be-DH liked the "jester" flower, even if it wasn't intentional on my part LOL!

Next i see you will you be Mrs. Jester? Perhaps....

Happy WOYWW!

well it isn't often Mr D feels as relaxed as that being 'sociable' - please tell me what you put in his tea....

congrats on joining the collaborators

tell me when you are coming to Derbyshire (autumn) so I can stop pining baout when we see each other next ....

Oh and I had a MAJOR panic that I had lost your half made wedding gift, then I found it half way down my washing basket yesterday when I took a load out to bring down to the laundry... ( don't ask)... so it is safe but smelly - you might want to hang it out for a bit when you get it...

Those bouquets look lovely - I'm getting married in July and can't believe how many little things there are to order and organise!

I'm still blown away by the bouquets. They really are stunning in real life and will provide a 'wow' to your wedding along with the other wow's I'm sure! Take care Zo xx 65

, happy to have seen them IRl, the bouquets are stunning. I wonder if you'll ever be able to use your desk in daylight..the thing about saying 'after AUgust'..is that after August you'll have a list as long as your arm!! But you know that already huh!!

Krisha said...

WOW, you have been busy. Calabor-art sounds like that could be heaps of fun.

Wow those bouquets are looking stunning! Your big day is going to be so glamorous (and deservedly so). Glad to hear you had a fun time at the crop. Happy WOYWW, hugs Jenny #131
ps. would you like the wedding fan I created as it's in purple and antique white? (there's a couple of posts on my blog) If it would come in useful let me know. If not, I won't take offence - it's your big day and you get to choose what you want x

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Morti, great meeting you & your other half, the bouquets are beautiful in the flesh, even more so than the pictures show. I think its lovely to have such personal little touches on a Wedding Day, its a day when soppy is obligatory!
If you get a minute, would you email me your addy, we'd love to send you a card for the Big Day,Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #32

KatzElbows said...

It was great to meet you on Saturday and make my little contribution to your bouquets. They look amazing and I'm about to use the inspiration you gave me to make a few button flowers of my own. Thank you so much for the ideas and good luck with finishing them.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Love Rachel #29
