blog / wedding
Last week, between my return to work and a full calendar of social engagements, I have been finding places for all the wedding decorations that survived. The paper flowers have gone back to the ceiling in a more organised way.
Now that I'm married (and back from our amazing week of vacation) things are supposed to get difficult right? Well I welcome difficulty, I can't wait to start working on new things with Danielle. The wedding was fantastic, thanks to the zoo and everyone who came. There'll be a lot more pictures soon, but this should serve as illustration for now:
There were wooden dinosaurs, paper dinosaurs, plastic dinosaurs, and Live Freaking Animals! all over the wedding =)
It's strange spending so much time working up to what is essentially just one big party. Certainly it is a thing worth celebrating, and a lot of fun making our own decorations and everything, but I am looking forward to spending some time not worrying about so many details.
So I've been reading an interesting book, called "The $100 Startup" and thinking a lot about entrepreneur...ing.
Essentially what we've been doing with (mostly Danielle) and how to make that work better. I find I am extremely interested in making new things, and if I can find a way for people to pay me to learn how to make things that would be optimal haha.
Other things that have been getting done are, of course, wedding things. Now that we have the actual license to sign, and these awesome rings!
They look better in person than under studio lights.All of the absolute must have items are accounted for. Which makes things less stressful in general, just gotta sort out who's sitting where...
Dang! missed a week!
Not sure how to make up for slacking off on a self imposed schedule on a blog no one reads...
Moving on then. No nice finished project pictures this time either, haven't been very photographic lately. Which isn't to say that nothing's been finished. It's just that most of my project work these last 2 weeks has been wedding related (or based in the vague land of computer programs and 3d modeling).
Making progress (I have to keep reminding myself) putting some finishing touches on the t-rex arches, hammering out some of the seemingly endless small decisions that have to be made, hiring someone to do the actual ceremony, finding music, looking for maid of honor's dress, trying to make sure the cheetah can attend, making hundreds of origami flowers out of animal print paper, looking for rings (still looking), etc.
Work on needle felted dinosaurs is ongoing... ideas for getting our felt decorations seen on the internet are moving along slowly... new designs are getting done frequently... steadily learning more and more about rigging characters for animation in blender... wore a tuxedo as best man at a wedding (guess I'll have pictures of that eventually)... and played a ridiculous game of D&D with people I haven't seen in a decade, in which a drunken dwarf stole 14 pounds of meet during a battle where our enemies never once managed to hit us...
I think it's been a pretty good week.
