I am 75% through the wedding stole.
We got all the materials this weekend to build a cobblestone walkway. Now to start digging 4" deep in a level fashion.
We got a bunch of plants and the yard is looking better and better.

Michelle found a hand painted picture which is huge. It's too big for her place, so for now, I'll keep on display in my house for her until she gets more walls. She has plans to paint a frisbee in the dogs mouth, over the cigarette. We're not sure what this painting is meant to be about, but somehow it's interesting anyway.
Yesterday we got the hammocks properly installed, that's where I am headed now that the temperature is dropping.

Here is a peek. The art carving print was custom made by my Maid of Honor, Michelle. It's the view of Golden Gardens Bathhouse from the water.
We bought the paper at The Paper Zone. The address label idea came from Martha Stewart. The font is called Dear Joe. After I mailed them, I realized that we forgot to note the "RSVP by" date. I guess I'll just start confirming with everyone I need to who hasn't responded by July 1st.

Tonight I assembled the photos from our childhood to display at our wedding. I saw this idea in a magazine and am very happy with how it turned out. I scanned in the old photos and had them printed in wallet size online so they are all the same size. The vase is from IKEA and the fake branches are from Cost Plus and Pier One. I already had this in the house, so I didn't have to spend much on the project. I used the same blue paper as I have on our invitation. Friday night is the invitation assembly line party. I finally have all the papers sliced - it would be a paper slicing nightmare without Kinko's help. Each invite has 9 pieces of paper attached together in various ways with double-stick squares. Thank goodness Michelle and Bill offered to come and help. We'll be using the sauna afterwards for sure. They will be the first guests to try it out.

The carving Michelle made for us is beautiful! Also, when I shrunk it at Kinko's at 50%, it was the perfect size for the envelope. I'm not sure if she did that on purpose, but it is just purfect!
This weekend is another push on the sauna and life organization. Maybe I'll mow the lawn when I get home.
