Yehey!  They're finally printed.  The biggest cost to us here is probably the printer ink - because we had to go far and wide to actually find a store that actually still carries cartridges for my printer of more than 6 years (or more, even).  That actually set us back a week.

Well now they're finally done!  Ingredients:
  - for inspiration
  - Epson Stylus Photo 830
  - Ivory board paper 80gsm c/o National Bookstore
  - Coin pockets c/o National Bookstore
  - Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
  - Patience
  - Fonts from /
  - A whole lot of patience and LOVE!

We're off to distribute them in the coming week, while waiting for our formal invitations.  Which reminds me, I need to follow-up on the proof...
 I don't know if I want time to go faster or slower.  On one hand, I can't wait to be married.  To fall asleep and to wake up with my man beside me.  To brew coffee and talk after breakfast (or dinner, since the odds of me getting up to afford breakfast is like slim to none).  To watch TV and maybe fight over the remote control.  To make a mess because I have way too much clothes and shoes.  I know we'll argue.  But getting thru those things makes life more fun, and makes us better at being "us".

On the other hand, I can't help but think we don't have enough time for the wedding preps.  The bridezilla has awakened, as Chips would imply.  One minute we thought that we had all the time, and now my brain is in a panic of counting how many weekends we have left, and when I could possibly take a leave this month to get the papers done.

Okay.  I'll try not to think about what needs to be done.  So I'll just focus on looking forward to Palawan.  And that's 66 days until we see the beach again.
I got this idea from where one of their featured weddings distributed paper bags with the loose petals towards the end of the church ceremony.  I guess anything is better than the guests trying to hold as many petals as they could on curled palms during the recession.  It's also a more organized / less messy way of distributing them.  Not to mention, cute!

Anyways, I also designed a seal that I'll just have printed on sticker paper.  One of the w@w bride-to-be's mentioned that they had some labels printed in Megamall... so that's probably where I'll get these done.  So there.  Tada!  I'm just too happy flexing my Adobe muscles.

On a side note, we'll be in Subic this coming weekend.  So that's two days out of the preps calendar.  Chips will be running the full marathon (that's 42 kilometers, aka 4++ consecutive hours of running).  I'm going to be there for moral support (waiting at the finish line).  Wish us luck!
If you would recognize, that's our non-monogram.  Printed on canvass.  Which my mom is sewing into a lovely souvenir (I'm not going to tell, it's up for you to guess).  These will be wrapped together with the personalized pencils (thanks Kuya TJ!).  I absolutely can't wait for everything to come together.

Spread the love!
We got super great news from our DMCI agent last night.  Our condo will be turned over earlier than expected!  As in super earlier.  The original date was December 2010 (which would mean we'll be living with Chips' parents... or mine for a year).  But because DMCI is so uber great, the turnover for our unit at Tivoli Garden Residences will now be on February 2010!  Woohoo!

We'll probably be able to move in around March though, since we asked for a bare unit.  But still.  Utter happiness.  I'm so excited.  It's another design project for me.  Hehe.  I do hope that since Chips and I got through the wedding planning scott-free, we could get through decorating without killing each other.
Some photos of us when we attended Eric and Suzette's wedding in Malolos.  Barasoain is such a beautiful place for a ceremony.  It was humid and it rained.  Miraculously, the rain stopped when it came to the reception, which was a garden set-up.  The food was great!

I unfortunately have a default rocker face when it comes to photowall moments.


    Fozzy will do most of the writing in this blog.  Chips will be contributing some pictures and ideas.  Together, we're awesome (and we've been so for over 8 years)!
