Memorable Days & Sneak Peeks...Vintage Canning Jars

Can summer really be over?  I have been so busy that my blog has suffered from lack of posts & that is ok... to a point!  I left you hanging for months & now is the time to jump back in.  Please forgive me for not following up with you sooner.

Five months ago, our youngest, our only daughter, Elizabeth, got engaged to TJ. On September 14, 2013, they wed in a beautiful ceremony in Sisters, Oregon at a venue called Shepherdsfield.  As you can imagine, it has been a whirlwind of activity making things and preparing for the big day.  Since Elizabeth lives in Redmond, about 2 1/2 hours away from Lebanon, we have made many phone calls, texts, and emails getting all the planning done; plus the numerous trips back & forth working on things together.  Of course, I would have it no other way & neither would our daughter.  We work well together & love creating; each of us has our favorite crafting mediums which is a win~win.  So for the next few posts I will be sharing the special touches that we made to make her wedding day unique to her & TJ.  Isn't that what it is all about?  Each wedding should be significant to the couple.

So I will share a sneak peek in this post & hopefully have a little more time to write more in the next. My life has been very busy with the wedding and working.  I got a new job on June 20th which ended up being full~time covering another person on medical leave.  She returns tomorrow & my schedule will adjust.  It ended up being a blessing due to wedding costs, but definitely limited my time creating. I think I have been in OVER~DRIVE!!  LOL!  I have hardly taken time to breath!  But it was all worth it! 

So here is my first pic to share with you...Remember those vintage canning jars??
These were the table centerpieces.  This is a quick photo I took just before the ceremony.  Believe me, I was rushing around to get some photos & didn't get all I wanted but you get the idea.  I fought the urge to primp things...hard to do!  

Have a fantabulous rest of your week & always remember what is important in your life... 
Sometimes you have to let your version of perfection go, so you can see others blossom.
