LGBTQ Couples: Who Proposes?

Posted 12 hours ago by Katie Tastrom

Now that marriage equality is the law of the land, some LGBTQ couples who are planning to get married are forced to figure out some of the logistics that were traditionally defined by gender.

Easy-to-Make Rustic Seating Chart Display

Posted 7 days ago by Cheyenne Bolt

So, my mom had these cans hanging from strings in her garage. They were all connected to this long, beautiful, rustic-looking branch. This, with the idea that flowing ribbons are just cool, spawned my idea for the rustic seating chart we’ll be crafting today. My cousins actually had an outdoor rustic and boho style wedding, and they had ribbons and baubles hanging everywhere. The effect was so neat; I often want to recreate this kind of imagery in my crafts! With this seating chart, your guests will… read more

How to Make Your Own Adorable Wedding Ring Pillow

Posted 1 month ago by Cheyenne Bolt

You heard it right. You can make your own ring pillow for your big day. I’m so excited about this project because I really feel it’s something that takes minimal effort but produces grand results.
