wee wedding plus a BABY!

Our wee wedding…here we are tying the knot…Jim, Me, Oliver (Thor) our ring bearer and Candy our lady of marriage…

This little silliness was made up by Tab…cute! She even spelled our name correctly!

No idea what we were laughing at but I love this picture!

And now on to bigger and better things! Olivia Grace was born November 6th 2011 at 2:55 pm…with me, Jazmin and her dad well hanging out and enjoying the show…

6 pounds 12 ounces…18 inches long!

Oliver LOVES his little sister…hugs her when ever he gets a chance!


Jim meeting his new grand daughter!

Jazmin can’t wait to baby-sit!

Olivia working on that ever elusive eye contact with me!


wedding preparations continue

While working on the brains for my wedding gobble-dee-gook I noticed Shamus was rather occupied…eating the Groom ducky from Oliver’s bucket of ducks for bath time…is this a wedding omen?!? Bad puppy…

Pretty sure his eyes are open…

My wedding bouquet…ran out of lime green ribbon though…so it’s not totally done…3-26-11

Jim’s boutonnière…yup that’s a brain! 3-26-11

My hat…LOVE IT!!! But alas ran out of lime green ribbon so it’s not totally done either… I’ve tried it on…quite solid it is…I may have to put in a weird ponytail so I can drive a hat pin through the whole thing to keep it in place… 3-27-11

Back of the hat with a skeleton wearing left over lace wings…neato! 3-27-11

Front of ‘the hat’ with fun froo froo feathers dancing in the slightest breeze… 3-27-11

Throw bouquet…I had some left overs from the bouquet and hat so WALA a freakish throw bouquet…some how I picture all the single ladies running to NOT catch it. 3-27-11

Throw bouquet detail…see the brain…mmm zombie love! threw it a couple times when Shamus wasn’t in the room…very durable! 3-27-11

My fantabulous wedding garter…see a theme growing?!? 3-26-11


Halloween Bouquet

I’ve moved away from the machines for a bit to work on my wedding stuff…I have a heaping pile of feathers, some wee black roses and ribbons…a few skeletons and some black tulle…

the wedding is on Halloween and we’ll all be in costume so I’m so not going with anything traditional or white for that matter…my dress is black and I’ll have a wee black top hat with a skeleton sitting on the back with his bony legs hanging on the bit of veil there…haven’t started the hat yet but I started the bouquet last night so this is definitely a work in progress as I don’t have everything for it yet…I’ll be making lace bats and a brain or 2 on the embroidery machine to add…the zombie baby isn’t part of the bouquet but he will be sitting at the table of refreshments for after the wedding…

And I ordered my shoes and dress this week…Ordered Jim’s (the groom) coon skin cap artificial as I wasn’t going to pay for a real one… He’s dressing up as a mountain man with knee high moccasins, suede and cap guns…and the coon skin cap of course…I will be in a black steam punk dress with black shoes that have clock gears on them…Shamus is the best man, he’ll be in a puppy tux…Oliver is the ring bearer with the pillow being a bat I made…I have Jim’s earring, since he can’t wear a ring because of his work, the earring is a black bent barbell with spikes on the ends…If the weather’s nice we’ll be in a friends gazebo in her garden or if the weather’s nasty we’ll be in her artist’s loft…about 24 people at the most…should be interesting, I’ve never planned a wedding
