DIY Wedding Open House: B&H

Well, we survived the wedding!  The wedding itself was down in Mesa, AZ.  In 109 degree weather.  Hot hot hot.  And then last weekend, the open house was here in Utah.  It turned out beautifully.  And we've been in recovery this week, with lots of sleeping in, lazing around and little productivity!
So here's the grand overview, starting with a quick two minute video tour:
(I don't recommend enlarging the video, it's REALLY pixel-y for some reason...)

Sign-in table
Banners overhead
(why yes I'm in love with these, so there are lots of photos!)
Gift table
Centerpieces
Food tables
Video corner
Whew!  As with last summer's wedding, this was A LOT of work!  But I love how it turned out.
Stay tuned for a breakdown of cost and projects!

Sewing Knits

Just wanted to pop in real quick like and share a sewing tip.  Are you afraid of knits?  I was.  Until yesterday.  I've always avoided knits like the plague after I tried a t-shirt redo and failed miserably.  But I needed a navy striped shirt for my daughter for this upcoming wedding.  Couldn't find it in the right shade of blue.  Found some awesome fabric on sale at Girl Charlee and decided to give knits a whirl, using this tip from Jessica at Me Sew Crazy:


It worked like magic.  And it's like a Whole New World (cue Jasmin and Aladdin) has opened up to me!  I can sew knits!  Ah, the possibilities!

Anyway, if you're afraid of knits, try this.  It will CHANGE YOUR LIFE.  ;)
