A Pretty Pink Progress Post

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving if you celebrated it. Dan and I went to his aunt’s near Augusta to have dinner with his Dad’s family, and it was a lot less hectic than the 4-5 dinners we go to when we’re back home. Plus I don’t feel like I overate! Win-win.

Money has been kind of tight, with the wedding and the holidays coming up, so I’ve been stressed. Dan convinced me to drop $6 on carnations at the grocery store, though, and I’m happy I did. Their bit of pink brightens up the apartment.

Another bright spot is that I am (very slowly) making progress on my WiPs! My mermaid tail is ready to finish!

I also am getting a knack for making coffee filter flowers, which are going to be the backdrop to the stage at the wedding. Here is my bin of them:

They take up way less space when you keep them krinkled up, so that’s what I’m doing until it’s time to string them together.

I might make a tutorial, if I can get a day with good light to take photos! It’s been dark an dreary. JT the cat has been very clingy, half because of the weather and half because he sprained his little kitty paw yesterday while we were gone 🙁 No break, but he’s walking with a limp. He doesn’t cry when we touch or squeeze it so we’re taking a wait and see approach.
