• {My Wedding} The DIY + Paper Goods

    Thanks for indulging me and letting me share my wedding with you all.  Because this blog is all about making your wedding YOU, I wanted to share the ways I did the same with my own wedding.  I had quite a few DIY projects that I did myself, and I also had the best maid of honor EVER who did all of my paper goods.  Here are some photos of and links to some of my wedding DIY projects (click the title to go to the full project):

    And here are the paper goods made by my maid of honor Kate:

    First she designed our monogram, which was on everything (it is how we “branded” our wedding), from our save the dates to our welcome bags, our invitation suite, and our drink stirs.

    She designed our entire invitation suite, and we had them letterpress printed at Studio On Fire.

    The lace belly bands are another DIY I did, which added a touch of vintage and alluded to my cream lace gown.

    She designed the cupcake flags and drink stirs, and assembled them, and she even did special flags for a couple of guests’ birthdays.

     She made all of our signs for the card table, guestbook, bathroom baskets, flip flop baskets, and the cupcake flavors sign.

    If you like her design work, she has an etsy shop, Tilde Designs.  She has a little one like me so she doesn’t have a lot for sale right now, but she does take custom orders!  You can contact me to reach her as well.

    So, what do you think of my DIY projects?  Did they inspire you to try to do one or a few for your own wedding?  Thanks again for letting me share.  xx

      Your whole wedding was gorgeous! Congrats!

      I really loved the menus – they are so fun and playful. A real conversation starter.

    •  You've had quite a milestone month from 7-8 months. You're scooting (with some speed), crawling, sitting up on your own, and sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4:30-5) pretty consistently. You totally want to mix it up with your brothers -- sometimes I think you are trying to jump out of my lap to get to them. You and Charlie have the sweetest relationship and you and Cal are best bros. They are both so loving towards you and patient when you pull their hair or grab the toy they have. I wish they were that patient with each other  They both watch out for you, retrieve things you drop, laugh when you're doing silly things like shaking your head like crazy, and are always looking for you. You're eating solids three times a day, still love to nurse, still have no teeth, are constantly babbling (dadadada is common), and are amazingly strong. You are 21.5 lbs (75th %) and are 90th % for height. And you still don't like me out of your sight -- all the heart eyes for momma and I love it. You're quite a flirt with everyone though but aren't loving when men get too close or talk to you too much. Except for daddy -- you're a big fan of him. You went from being my hardest baby to my easiest of the three right now. Thanks for the reprieve. Your happiness is infectious and each dimpled smile you give brightens everyone's day. Happy 8 months buddy. Love you times a million. #quincysmonthbymonth  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood
       These three are why I'm now a morning person. Starting each day with smiles and kisses from these boys is what fuels me for the day. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee  #thefredrickboys  Had the best time with my biggest boy at the @nhmla today. He's been there so many times since we have a membership that he has an order he likes to follow. But I surprised him by taking him on Dinofest weekend and he loved it so much he didn't even mind that it was too crowded to see the butterflies today or that we couldn't see everything. Sometimes it is so good for the both of us to have some time together, away from the babies. Like the old days. #charlesdashiell #mommacharliedateday #oldsfaveplacesinla
