I have been drawing out inspiration boards for parties for years. I had no idea that this is the big way of planning parties. Let me just say that it is totally helpful to do it on a computer rather than torture myself drawing and making collages. I don't have a name for our rockabilly-esque, DIY, Halloweenie wedding...I am open for suggestions as to what to call it.
We are definitely going with purples/lavenders and reds. The green dress is going to be purple/lavender. The flowers will be of yarn and paper. I am hoping to make wooden postcard save the dates....we shall see how it all goes, as there's wood burning involved which may be more of a pain in the booty than I am willing to put up with. I must do real work now...it has been said I have the "bug" which I am unhappy about. I have looming deadlines, tons of work and I am freaking out trying to get it all done. When I am tired and should be going to bed, I make inspiration boards.
The venue we picked said the little woof-woofs can come if the caterers are okay with it. Hazah!

I am totally feeling craft inspiration; no inspiration to work my day job, but whatevs. It happens from time to time. I found a few new crafty blogs in my search for wedding ideas. I think in a post modern recession wedding, my primary focus is cost effectiveness followed by theme. I have no less than 10 different themes marinating in me wee noggin all contingent upon a date and place. Rosie and I are looking at venues on Friday. I am getting more excited about the party planning aspect than I thought I would. My Monday Night Knitters (MNKs) are so talented in a variety of crafts that I hope they will agree to work on craftaculars through the year getting stuff done. The sweat shoppers in Texas used to work for food and alcohol...hope I can get that arrangement up here.
