First DIY Project!!
First of all, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did you know that Saint Patrick is the Patron Saint of Engineers!! WOOHOO!
I celebrated by studying for the PE. Last year, we went to South Boston (Southie) for the St. Patty’s Day Parade. It was a fun atmosphere.
Anyway, onto my DIY project. I took two hours away from studying last Friday to make some cards to ask my bridesmaids to be my bridesmaids!! They say that you shouldn’t ask your girls too early, but seriously, I’ve known them all for AT LEAST ten years, so I figured I was safe.
I made my way to the nearest scrapbooking supply store (aka Target) and could only find stuff for brides (not bridesmaids), so I got creative. Here’s the outside of the card:
And the inside:
The poem was: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a six pence in my shoe, and a wonderful friend just like you. I personalized them a bit by using colors that the girls liked. And then the “white feather wedding dresses” were made less “wedding dress”y by putting sparkly blue paper and coloring things. I thought they were cute.
I can post this now, since all the girls have received their cards, actually except for one (she knows what it says and doesn’t read this anyway). I put them in the mail on Friday at 5pm. And she still hasn’t gotten it. We’re both afraid that it has ended up like a wedding invitation I received a few years ago:
Anyway, 6 bridesmaids! WOOHOO!! We’re on our way to a wedding!
