busy bee

I've been sort of a busy bee since the year began. With, first of all work, and you know - life and all that. 

But I've also been tinkering about the house, putting bobs and bits together. I'd very much like to DIY some things for my upcoming wedding and I suppose this gives me a good way to spend my evenings at home aside from watching all the TV shows I'm currently hooked on. And then there's the Golden Globes so of course I like HAVE to watch every single movie that's nominated. Right?

Well, many scoffed at the DIY idea cause, you know, I'm quite a bum. But I'm truly enjoying it. And I'm moving along just fine. Here's a sneak peek of what I'm working on.

alphabet stamps

This one's easy peasy. Just a lot of stamping to do. But I probably shouldn't attempt this after 3 cups of coffee! I smudged like an entire column  >.<

And here are the corsages and boutonnieres I'm trying out. It's still a work in progress and I'm still playing with a few different styles but hopefully it'll look great when everything comes together.

Hoping I'll have more to share as THE DAY approaches. Till then... craft on!
