Feeling Crafty?

My upcoming wedding has me traveling around the internet seeking to find inspiration and affordable decorating ideas in short order. Recently, I found this fabulous website for wedding planners AND people just seeking cool, crafty stuff at great prices, Save On Crafts.


They have TONS of stuff, and it’s all photographed rather nicely, which makes surfing their website all the better. For instance, check out this lasercut filligree cake stand wrapper. I LOVE the delicacy of laser cut paper…..


They have all sorts of silk and paper flower heads in different colors, which would be fun to work into a  wall finish somehow….


These cupcake wrappers are so pretty I almost wish I hadn’t chosen a tiered wedding cake.


Love this pair of pretty partridges!


I have no potential place to put this silk fabric lantern, but wish I did! It’s quite cool…and quite inexpensive.


You may have read my earlier post on wedding floral arrangement inspiration? Well, alas, my budget and time constraints don’t allow me to seek out and purchase all the beautiful porcelain vases I would need to complete THAT look, so it’s on to “Plan B”. I’ve decided to use these inexpensive urns and follow THIS idea with the trailing ivy and focal point flowers. They will be places on patterned and patinated mirror rounds that I hope to complete this coming weekend with the help of some friends, wink, wink…..

    Okay. I give up. Do you EVER sleep? You have time to create, travel, plan a wedding, AND surf the web?

    Melanie, I love your work and look forward to every post to this blog. I just looked at my watch and realized why I haven’t seen any new ones lately…you got married yesterday! I hope your special day was all that you dreamed of and more. Enjoy your honeymoon =) P.S. I’m so selfish…I hope I can wait for the next post =)
