For our save the date cards, we decided to create postcards with scratch-offs. The scratch-offs on the back revealed the date. We used VistaPrint (http://www.vistaprint.com/) to get the postcard and a family friend was able to give us circle scratch offs to place on the date.
I also created an electronic save the date for the website for those that we were
sending electronic invitations to. I used Adobe Flash and saved it as a movie to upload to the website.
I was not able to upload it for viewing.

In the coming weeks, I will begin posting my adventures of creating my dream wedding.
For our wedding (June 2011), I decided to do a few DIY projects.
- Design and Print Save the Dates
- Design and Print Invitations
- Design Wedding Website
- Make Wedding Favors
- Make Bridal Bouquets
- Make Bridal Gifts
- Make Parent's Gift and Guestbook
- Make Out of Town Bags
There might be more that I am forgetting. We created a lot of the items for our wedding and hope that my experience can help someone with their wedding.

I joined BzzAgent about a month ago and accepted a campaign to try some Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner. A week ago I received a small package with the shampoo. I was so excited to try it. I am not one to spend a lot of money on shampoo. So I never bought anything that was more that $2.99 or so.
The shampoo and conditioner smell great and have made my hair smoother but I am not sure how it will hold up as a daily use. I am planning on trying to use it daily for the next 2 weeks to see how my hair is.
If you have used this shampoo let me know how you like it.

The past year had a few changes for us. We finally got married in June and we both got new swim coaching jobs. I have also completed my teaching degree and am looking for a full time teaching job.
Crafting was put on the back burner this past year and I finally have the time and energy to begin again. There are so many projects on my to-do list and pinterest has not helped it at all.
I will begin to post some of the wedding projects that I did. Hopefully, it will help someone else.
Until next time :-)
