Hello bloggy pals!  Been pretty busy.. I dont know what Ive been doing. but it seems that I'm always doing something.   I have lots of wedding stuff to be working on it, but to be honest I have found it hard to do any crafting as its been soooo freaking hot.  I used to love the summer, but this year Im not enjoying it much at all.  I suppose it is partly related to the events of the summer, having and losing Jacob and my son Roberts wedding.
Lots and Lots to do to get ready for the wedding.  Tiffany has been a busy girl making most of her decorations and favors.  I really need to sit down and get busy on the things I'm responsible for.  The clock is ticking!!
This weekend is the bacholorette and bacholor parties.  the girls are going to get mani's and pedi's and then to do some wine tastings.  The guys are going canoeing.  Then they are all meeting back up to have a bon fire and party.    then the next weekend is the wedding.  I think its like 10 or 11 days away.....
I hope it all comes together well.  pray for perfect weather as it is an out door wedding! 
There has been some drama....  but as much as I would like to tell you about it, I suppose it would be best not to put it out here...   I guess every wedding probably has some. 
I just think its their wedding and it should be the way they want it and  as parents we should be totally supporting and helping to make the day as special as possible. 
nuf said about that!
In other news....  if you are doing the witches hat swap, I will be emailing you soon.  I have all the partners picked and am ready to let you know.
OH, and by the way.. my computer is "in the shop" and Im using a loner.  For some reason I am unable to leave comments on a lot of your blogs.  when I get to the comment section I cant scroll down enough to get to the publish button!
that sucks!

okeedokie...  see yas later

My gosh- You have had a lot on your plate this summer, Viv. I understand about the wedding dramas- been through 4 of them myself. I agree with you- the day belongs to the kids and others should basically butt out or keep themselves to themselves.

Now-get busy!!!;>) xo Diana

I certainly don't want to rush the summer...the idea of early morning bus schedules and homework sends me into panic attacks...but I'm definitely ready for Halloween crafting. Hugs! Best luck with the wedding drama. I would never wish that on anyone.

I am waiting on this heat to move on and Fall to get here. Hope everything works out on thew Drama Front.. I know how that can be. My daughter got fed up and they went to the courthouse and had a great honeymoon..Not my fault!! lol

You are a busy bee!

I am just so OVER summer and all this horrid hot weather. Bleh!

Hope all the drama dials down. I don't know about all this hooey I am hearing about because Mars is in retrograde that is why there is so much drama going on all ovah the place but I am beginning to believe it! (not that I am wackadoo you know....LOL)

Love you!


It's been some summer!!! Hoping things settle down for you soon.
Loved the peek in the last post and seeing the friendship tags. I need to post about mine...I'm waiting for all of them first.
Take care!

You have had quite a summer. You are so busy. Maybe that is good.
Just a guess.....if you reduce the size of the print would it show farther down. I keep mine at 125%. SOmetimes it does what you say. If I decrease the size it works. Good luck with all the things going on. Hope the drama stays away for now.

I think you are right, every wedding has some drama. It will all come together. Hang in there!!

Hugs chris

Ahhhh...I get the feeling that there are "other parents" that aren't making it easy on the kids, and being fully supportive. That's really a shame. I hope the next week and a half goes better and that the drama dies down!
It should be a very happy and exciting time for everyone!
Erica :)

Look forward to seeing photos of the wedding, it sounds like there will be so many handmade personal touches. How wonderful!

kandeland said...

LBP said...

You are so right about weddings! So much drama anymore. Good grief. I think if I were getting married right now I would just elope!

Thanks for sending me my Witches Hat swap info! I am looking forward to working on this!

Looking forward to cooler temperatures myself.

I feel the same way, Viv; it's their wedding and sometimes people forget that. Fingers crossed the weather cooperates! We seem to finally have lost some humidity here in Ohio although it still hits 90. I got my partner email! : ) Thank you! I know Debby and will actually be seeing her soon, so I'm sure we will chat about our likes for the swap.

Theresa said...

Girl, you have been busy! Me too:) Hope all goes well with the wedding plans! Nothing sweeter than two joined as one! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Hi Vivian, I am so excited to be introduced to a new blog through your Witch's Hat swap. I can't wait to see all of them. I tell you, I am completely stumped so far. I just haven't found the right supplies yet. Must be this heat! Can't wait for your wedding photos. Take care, E

Thanks for e-mailing about my partner :) I too haven't crafted all summer- up until yesterday. I seem to be making up for lost time with the crafting marathon going on in my art room. I hope the wedding goes smoothly in spite of the (ignorant) people that are trying to ruin it.
