Snow Week!

And I thought I left all of the snow behind when I moved from Philly to Texas.  If you have been watching the news (or anything related to the Superbowl, congrats to the Packers), you may have heard that Dallas was hit with some very unusual winter weather.  The snow wasn't too bad, it was the thick layer of ice underneath it that made driving horrible.

My Escape out in the snow, lucky Mr. E had the garage

I'm lucky to have the option to work remote, so I didn't have to drive out in this mess.  Gypsy spent her snow days pretty much just like all of her other days.

The weather also limited my after work activities to our apartment, which was a great motivator to get some random DIY projects checked off the to-do list.  I always knew I wanted to upgrade the plastic hanger that my dress came on, but didn't want to spend too much. Luckily, I found a $5 pack of 5 hangers (perfect for me and my 4 bridesmaids) and glued on some left over crystals to personalize them.

All of the hangers together

Not too shabby for $5 and left overs!

Since we are doing assigned tables at our rehearsal dinner, I wanted to make some cute escort cards to go with the red, black and white color scheme.

Another project made from scraps!  The colored pattern paper came from a pack that I originally purchased for MOH Navy's bachelorette sign, and the thick white cardstock backing came from a pack that was purchased for the her bridal shower bingo game.  I'm just waiting for the final RSVP count to see who will be coming to the dinner, then I'll add names and table numbers to the front.

I also had some free time (because really, you can only look at the pretty white snow for so long) to print, cut and adhere the welcome tags for our out of town boxes.

Have you made use of this crazy winter weather to knock out some wedding projects??
