Wedding Shadowbox

*You can now find this page at its new location too! http://www.levickylanding.com/2014/02/wedding-shadowbox.html

Hi Everyone,

As most of you know, I was married in August and I have been very busy with life since then.  We have been doing a lot to our house that isn't really blogable (lots of remodels!).

I did have some time recently to complete a project that I have been dying to do since before the wedding!  I created a shadowbox of things from the wedding that were special to me.

Before the wedding I really wanted to have someone do it for me but I just could not bring myself to pay hundreds of dollars for something that only cost me $25.  Sure they aren't live looking flowers but I might actually like them more dead!

It was very simple to make and a lot easier than I expected!

Wet Bar

Hi Everyone!

We finally (sort of) finished our basement!  We are still waiting until later this month to finish the bathroom but the rest of it is finished!

When we looked at the house and saw the basement, we just knew we had to put a bar down there!  Eric built it all on his own (besides installing the counters).  Check it out!


Eric has surprised me every day of our marriage because I didn't really think he could do any of that.  Well honestly, I hadn't really thought about it.

To make it more amazing, check out the before and after photo!

DIY Garter

Hi Everyone!

I know I have been sharing a lot of wedding things lately.  My plan was to alternate between regular and wedding posts but it is just so easy to post about the wedding because our photographer's already took all of the pictures!

I decided I wanted to make my own garter just to see how hard it would be and if I could do it.  It ended up being one of the easiest things that I did for the wedding!

I even made two garters so I could keep one and throw one!


Super cute right?!  But also super easy!

Suit Card

Hi Everyone!

You know all of those Pinterest pins that you pin and say "Oh I have to do this one day, I can't forget!" but you really do until it is too late.  Well this time, I didn't forget!

I would attach the pin but honestly I had never clicked on it before and it was just a picture!  After the disappointment warred off and I realized I would have to do it myself, I decided not to share the "link".

Before I get to the main event, I have to share something.  I hate buying cards.  Is there a stronger word for hate?  Detest, despise, loath.  I think they are over priced and never have enough personalization in them.

Don't worry, my husband hates them too!  So we made a deal with each other that we would never buy each other a card again.  Yes I know I will regret this one day when I forget to make a card (I almost forgot on his birthday but shhhh).

For the wedding I had to make a card for him to read the day of and I wanted to personalize it just for him and but a little more effort in than drawing a picture like a 2 year old on the front.

So without further ado, here is the card I made him, a suit card!

DIY Wedding Favors

Hi Everyone,

I want to share the favors I made for our wedding!  They took some time because I made 200 favors and anything you do 200 times takes awhile!

Our favors were chocolate Xs and Os where each guest got 1 X and 1 O.  Whether or not people knew I made the favors, it was nice knowing that I personally made them.  The cherry on top is that they were $.50 a favor!
