• {DIY} Cootie Catcher Wedding Menus

    I love these cootie catcher menus for weddings (maybe I’m biased, since these are from my own…)  They add a touch of whimsy to any style of wedding, and a bit of nostalgia too.  And they are really easy to do, if you are a DIY’er.
    {Materials}
    Paper in the color of your choice
    Ink in the color of your choice
    A decent printer
         (or just print one and have them color copied on your paper at a Kinkos or other copy place)
    A bone folder (or similar tool)
    A friend to help you fold them (because it gets really tedious to fold fold fold) – if you are having a 300+ person wedding, you may not want to go this route.  I had around 140 people.
    {Instructions}
    1.  You either need to design a template for yourself, or you can use ones I found here (for powerpoint)
          or here (for Photoshop).  Then personalize it to fit your wedding.
    2.  Print the number that you need (plus a few extras) or print one and have them copied.
    3.  Then fold them.  Since that part can be tricky too, I found this video to help you!
    *The thing this video doesn’t do is use a bone folding tool to really get the folds done well.  Trust me, for wedding menus you do want to use the tool.  It will help the menus stay folded how you want them.
    After all of your hard folding work, you will get something like this:

    What do you think?  Love cootie catcher menus, or prefer something more traditional?  I think menus and little details like that are a great place to let some fun and personality shine through.  Has anyone else made their own cootie catcher menus?

      This could be from exercising incorrectly, or siomply moving inn a wrong way.
      Instead, visits to registered physical therapist
      are often of great benefit, and these experienced medical practitioners
      can help put you oon the right trwck to permanent recovery.

    •  One sick kid, one heat wave, one million ants in our laundry room... You win Monday. Sometimes you just gotta put the work away, or step away from the piles of laundry, and get outside for a reset. Or look at photos of bougainvillea from when you could get outside  #wavingthewhiteflagtoday #tomorrowisanewday  Summer. Heat wave. Mandatory. #calvinsfirstcone #calvins2ndyear
       When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies
