After deciding I didn’t want a sign-in book at the wedding (it’d just get packed away), I began brainstorming ideas for different twists on the tradition. Originally, I wanted something like this I found on Etsy:
But of course, I’m difficult and I wanted to make my own. I sought out a place in Abilene where I could find original pieces of wood. The only place I found had cedar, but it ended up being too dark for what I wanted/needed.
…but… of course… I needed to add a little something to it. So I bought a similar frame at Hobby Lobby, purchased the cheapest watercolors I could find (after frustratedly remembering ALL my art supplies are already in Sweetwater) which happen to be infused with SHIMMER, and set to work sprucing up our frame.
I can’t wait to see the truly finished product – with all of our friends and families’ names scrawled on as well!
