This is post #601 people!! WOW....I have done a lot of post for someone so quiet, shy and reserved!! ~grins~

Babygator and Almost son in law and friends have put together this beautiful wedding. Since they are both grown and earning their own was done without $$$ from the parental units.

I got to do a few small things and I loved working on them!

The ring bearer and flower girl are wee little things! Both were around a size 6. I made these so that they could wear them at either the rehearsal dinner or the reception and dance.
The ring bearer is a a red headed hoot! Babygator was there in the room when he was born. She has known him since he took his first breath. He loves babygator but he LOVES almost son in law.
Both BG and ASIL work security at concerts and such so I thought that it would be fun for their own security to have a shirt.
I have not met the flower girl yet but I loved the color of this t-shirt!! I appliqued flowers onto the shirt and added a little bling. ALL girls need bling!!

I made did the girls initials with 2 inch glass squares and a sterling silver bail. These will be tied into the bouquets. They will not be seen but the girls will know that there are there. I just thought that would be a sweet keepsake.

And now y'all are all going to laugh at me! I was afraid that, with all the standing and such, my feet would be aching before the dance was over. I made me some pimped out house shoes!!
I want to put on my, my, my, my, my boogie shoes just to boogie with you. ~points at you with one hand while the other is on my hip all sassy like~ yea just to boogie with you!

For the bridesmaid gifts, I started with silver buckets!

I added some really cool beaded swag around the lip of the bucket that my mom had found. Bridesmaid gifts and bucket just does not flow sweetly off the tongue when said together do they?I made lavender eye pillows that can be used either hot or cold. You people always *get* to see pics of my ironing board cover. I really should change that up more often.

I then made foaming vanilla honey bath, chai milk bath, brown sugar body scrub and rise and shine bath salts.

I added those things to a bath poof and the eye pillow. I added wonderful smelling soap and lip candy from one of my favorite etsy sellers The Dirty Housewife Soap Company. She also has a facebook page. Look her up and tell her I sent you! You will LOVE her lip candy...I promise!!
Then I had tiny little buckets I had picked up at Target..they are so itty bitty cute! I filled them with white chocolate and added the girl's name to the front.

A view from the air....

Then I used this ribbon to wrap tie it all up in. LOVE the colors on this ribbon!! I tried to take a final pic but the cellophane was all shiny and it did not show up good.


  1. I love it! Kye's shirt is my favorite. Since when did you start calling Biker-ASIL? Love the post. I have so many I need to put up. I took pictures along the way of what I was doing and how I cut corners and made stuff myself. I am thinking I will probably not get time to blog before Saturday.
