It could be what you want to do, have done, still need to do...etcetera!!
Besides flowers, some other little reception things, and all things paper, I'd like to make the ring pillow, headband or hair flower, sash, garter, cake topper, and possibly my veil. We'll see if I actually make all that happen, though!!
-Finish my invites (shoot me in the face jk but goodness they're tedious)
-napkin rings if I can figure out how to do it...
There are more, but these are the 3 weighing on my mind tonight.
I have my entire list in my bio, but things I'm going to do this weekend include:
