I totally scrapped my silkscreen!!!! It sucked, it was making me insane, and it was super obvious I made my image too large. I can admit defeat. I restarted on a new little screen, and I know that will make my life less full of rage.
NOW. The weekend!
I traveled "home" for the weekend to see some of my friends wedding. I had an important delivery to make. The cake topper!!
The bride and groom were looking for a topper that was close to their hearts, and they are both huge rat lovers. So plans were made and I got started.
Once I had both made I worked on posing them.
Then I made a base and attached them and their little tails. The most fun part was making the teeny tiny bouquet and other stuff.
And here they are on the cake! I had no idea what the cake was going to look like or how big it was or anything. I think it worked out great.
Here is the happy couple with the cake. I didn't get any fantastic pics of them with the cake, but I am not worried as there were about 200 digital cameras at this wedding and I am sure lots of great photos exist.
The bride gave me a super sweet and totally embarrassing shout out in her thank you speech, which was perfect. How many people get their website pimped out over a loudspeaker?
Here is me and the girls in the bathroom. I am going to pretend that tilt is intentional, and we hadn't drank for 10 hours. :-)
As if all the whole wedding thing wasn't ENOUGH, it was also Mothers day PLUS my dude's birthday! Fit all that into a weekend.
So we squeezed in a night of drinks and videogames until 4am. Ill advised before a wedding, but totally necessary.
So thats it. So much squeezed into three days, on basically no sleep. I am getting too old for this. ;-)
