Susan's wedding

As mentioned, Susan's getting married, and we're having a blast making plans. (Okay, I'm having a blast, since it's not my wedding, not my stress, I'm not even going to be there! - Second wedding, small for mostly  family, plus I told her not to invite me. It's a weekend in August, as well, and we're cottagers! I'd rather not be in the city, all dressed up. We'll raise a glass to her and G up north...)

But the planning thing - we've been having fun throwing ideas back and forth - colours, dresses, and all the fun things. As it's the second for each of them, they are taking a much more relaxed view of it, and letting the planner do the work with their ideas. Soooo much better.
But, as most of you know, Susan is crafty (in a good way), so there will be a degree of hand crafted items in the theme of the day. And she's been nice enough to let me showcase them here.

Starting with her cake topper. While one of the most elegant people I know, Susan has a streak of whimsy in her, and man does it show here! I love these! SO much better than those preformed plastic monstrosities one finds these days...



here's her words...

I even made little tails for them on their backsides. G loves them too (though I suspect he knew using them is going to be mandatory).  Clay blocks come in a block that is divided into 4 equal sections with lines. Two lines made a body, 1 made a head, and then a little white, orange and a mixture of a purple/pink for the orange and white accents, bow tie and flowers. The girl penguin will receive a crocheted thread veil that I'll glue to the back of her head flowers with some E6000 jewellery glue. Then I'll see if I can get a candle base or something like that to attach them to for the cake. The clay is not toxic but apparently not food-safe, so you have to do that.
Very fun to make.
 
She makes it sound easy, doesn't she?
