Survived an entire day without power. Yep, no internet, television or stove. We ate hotdogs on our friend's BBQ and hung out. Cleaned the 20-odd wine bottles with the help of JenP and our scrubbing power. Note for all those future wine bottle cleaners- soaking them in hot water for three hours in the tub is not enough to remove glue. Unfortunately, in order to save our sanity, WD40 was used.
Went to Dr. Horrible Sing along Blog- stage adaptation at the Fringe Festival with friends. The only musical I have ever liked. Ever. Haven't seen it? Neil Patrick Harris in a comedic musical tragedy. Need I say more?
Yay my cute shoes! I heart them.
The finished product, two hours of work later.Free-hand penciled and then painted our Guest Book "Tree". Idea stolen from this wedding, I thought it would be a shame to buy a print of a tree and decided that I would paint ours. Umm. Since I am not really an artist, I forgot just how difficult painting a tree can be. My wonderful, genius Maid of Honour suggested that I take the trees on our bedspread as a guide. I couldn't trace them, but my free hand turned out pretty d*mn nice if I do say so myself.
Small, non toxic water based paint gouache circles in different fall colours (green, yellow, orange, red, brown) will be placed in small value village tea cup plates. Heather, my BTA (Bridal Team of Awesomeness) will act as guide for all those confused guests, helping them find their inner child, squish their thumb in the colour of their choice and make a leaf on our "Loved Ones" tree. After a quick wash with a cloth and water, a small signature finishes the deal and voila, we have a framable guest book.
Now if I can only figure out how I'm going to write "Andrew and Lisa, October 16th 2010". I have terrible paint-font skills.
Happy Labour Day!
