Holly and Brett

Holly and Brett, ready for their friend Alex's wedding.



Holly and I did some Sunphoto art to decorate the bag and card, and she made a nest for a bird that's a doorbell. We pretended to translate the Portuguese directions, but really it was just what we wanted to write. Inside the eggs in the nest are the directions and extra batteries.




The doorbell part is wrapped separately and marked "open first," so the bird can make noise from inside its wrappings. I really enjoyed working on all those various parts with Holly.

So they're gone for the evening, Marty might go to the reception after work (depending how long he works; Friday and Saturday nights are variable). Keith might stay over at an SCA event or not; he took a van with a bed. So I'm here alone and I don't know when or if to expect others. Interesting. Unusual. I don't mind it.

Wow! That is a really awesome wedding gift! A doorbell bird with a hand made nest, so cool. The bag and card...what a wonderful idea. I bet they are going to love it! You can tell it came from the heart:)

Yay-recent Holly pictures so A and E could see what her hair looks like lately! They have been asking about whether we will see Holly (or you or Marty) at Live and Learn this year.
