The wedding craft madness has well and truly begun. In the past week I have (with the help of several fantastic friends)…

1. Made these adorable buttons:

They will go in the favor bags. Aren’t they cute? Also, I love how just about any photo taken with the Hipstamatic app looks artsy.

2. Made the favor bags themselves. Well, most of them. We got about 75 done in one sitting. Still need to do about 30-40 more.

3. Made chalkboard signs for use in the photo booth (tutorial to come, if I remember to bring the cord for my camera, so I can upload pics).

4. Made the stencils for the groomsman gifts. Mr. Cake and I need to go buy the mugs today after work, and then the etching can begin!

5. Burned around 65 cds. Over halfway there!

Also, we now have a working stove, so I will soon be delving in to the glamorous world of wine bottle label removal. When I googled it this morning to see which techniques were most recommended, I found that more people than I expected are interested in such label removal. Most of them are scrapbooking their wine labels, not using the bottles, though. I was surprised at the number of articles out there on this. They all seem to have different thoughts on which methods work best. I shall have to try a few and see for myself.

Oh, and I did a good bit of knitting on the ringbearer vest. I’d say it’s about 85% done now.

Whew! That was a productive weekend. I might actually get everything done in time!
