Look, I made something!

It was a little under the wire, the wedding is tomorrow, but I finished this guest book last night:

Pinkbook1 Pinkbook2 Pinkbook3

It is for the niece of a co-worker. The only information that I had was that the wedding colors were pale pink and black and the flowers were roses, which made me think of Paris, circa 1950. So I took that idea and went with it, and the aunt of the bride said that it totally captured the bride’s style. So I’m feeling pretty proud of myself. 

I made an organza (or organdy, I always forget the difference) sleeve to protect it. To bad I forgot to press it before taking a picture, especially considering that pictures of non-ironed creations posted on blogs is one of my pet peeves. I know, totally nit-picky, but press things before you go posting it for millions to see. In my case, there will only be 29 people viewing my un-ironed organza book sleeve, so I’m not too concerned. The cover is Italian silk and a black flocked damask with a little grosgrain ribbon trim. I tucked a little picture of roses in there, since those are the wedding flowers.

P.S. I think you could still buy one of these little guys if you wanted to.


  1. That is just lovely. I like the paper you used to line the inside, too. And the organza sleeve is the perfect finishing touch!
    Best wishes for 2006!

  2. Beautiful! I love it. You are so talented!
