30 Before April 30 Project 20 Completed!

I apologize curious bees for the lack of content recently and you may be surprised to hear that it has nothing to do with our wedding. This busy inspired bee has started a new job this week after walking away last week from a company that I have spent well over 5 years with. So as you can imagine, my brain is working overtime learning a new job and getting things ready for our wedding.

Thanks to a dear friend, I saved some money on this next project. As any crafter knows, styrofoam products in any form can be expensive. I was shocked to learn that a plain sheet of styrofoam or any similar product can be well over $20 each. MJ suggested that I pick up a sheet of insulation styrofoam at Home Depot to shape into the 'C' I wanted to make. (I don't have a picture of the product; I lost the picture along with my camera in a cab during my bachelorette party. RIP Cannon.)


Warning: this can get messy. I traced a 'C' and just used an old bread knife and worked some magic. Once satisfied, I covered the styrofoam with moss sheets, using hot glue to secure the material into place.

  1. Hi, I found your engagement session online. The photos were awesome. My fiance and I wanted to do something similar. Do you happen to have the contact info for someone at Fenway. I've emailed a few people and didn't hear anything back.

    Thanks
