Here comes the bride part II

The wedding is fast approaching, less than 2 weeks to go and I still have 4 projects to complete. The bride ordered mugs and glasses for the wedding party to use at the reception. The online cost of engraving was several hundred dollars so she decided to have them engraved locally. When she took them in to be engraved the engraver did not want to do them because although the plaque on the glass is metal, the glasses are glass. :~) The engraver was afraid they would break when place in the clamp to hold them steady. So I became plan C. With my sweet KNK Maxx I was able to do them for very little cost using outdoor vinyl.

A member of the bridal party saw a plaque that I had made for a customer and decided to have me make one for the bridal couple. They will be combining 3 families. This was made from a wood cabinet door from ReStore…I love that place. :O)

IMG_2387 I am excited to announce that I will be going to The Light Your Fire with KNK retreat in Phoenix, Arizona August 9-11. There are still a few spots open so if you want to join us email for an application.
