My Mother's Reception Dress

At my parents wedding reception, my mother wore an incredible paisley dress with one of the shortest skirts I have EVER seen. I adopted that dress when I was in high school, and would wear it as a shirt over a pair of jeans.

Here is a conversation that I had with my mother a few months before my wedding:

ME: I was hoping that towards the end of the reception I could change out of my gown and into your reception dress. Would that be okay with you?

MOM: My reception dress?

ME: Yeah, I thought it would be really fun and meaningful.

MOM: (Doubtfully.) Oh... okay.

ME: Would that be alright with you?

MOM: I suppose so. It's just that...

ME: What?

MOM: What would I change into then?


ME: (Sighing.) No, Mom, I don't want to wear the dress you're wearing to my wedding. I want to wear the dress you wore at your wedding.

Three reasons to celebrate creativity...

1) I received the big, black and beautiful notebook for the Moleskine Projekt in the mail a few days ago. So far, I have completed 3 of my 8 pages.

I Took The Handmade Pledge!

I am planning on a handmade holiday this year... Jason and I will be creating all homemade gifts for Hanukkah and Christmas.

And, the most exciting news this week...

3) Jason has begun his own blog, where he will be showcasing his phenomenal talents as a photographer and a writer. Check him out at !
