Bennie Gottsch Got Married

Monday, September 30th, 2013


Around the same time I was finishing up with all of my wedding projects for Troy and Sara’s wedding I received an email from an old friend. It started out “Hey Kerri P, Liz Gottsch here, remember I lived across the street?” As if I could forget Liz Gottsch.

Hello Kriso: It’s Never Too Early For Halloween

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Well it’s been proven, it’s never too early for Halloween in the Newman household. If you’ve read some of my previous posts you know about my sister Kris who lives Down South. You know, the one that makes those cute, fuzzy baby burp rags and plans amazingly bright and colorful birthday parties? Well I’m about to reveal her dark side.

Sara & Troy: Boards & Banner

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

As promised in my last post, we’re moving on to the boards & banner portion of Sara & Troy’s wedding paraphernalia. Sara’s soon-to-be mother-in-law Joni had asked me in our very first wedding email if I could make some chalkboards for the wedding reception. I said “Sure.”, never having really done any chalkboards before. Lucky for all involved, I picked up a few chalkboard jobs before the big day so I was able to get in a bit of practice.

Sara & Troy – Fan Programs

1 Program

Now that Sara and Troy are closing in on their two month anniversary, I have decided it’s finally time to post a few of my contributions to their happy day. Along with designing and producing their wedding invitations they had asked me to do their wedding programs. Already during our first meeting Sara knew that she wanted her programs to be fan programs, with good reason, the wedding would be in my famously unairconditioned church sanctuary on July 13! Which of course proved to be one of the hottest weekends of the summer.

Hello Kriso – Raggy Crazy

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Welcome to “Hello Kriso”, a new little corner of the “Hey Kerri P” blogosphere that will keep you up to date on all of the crafty goings on down south in the Newman household.

Kris has entered into a region of the craft world that still scares the dickens out of me… sewing. She asked for and received a sewing machine from our parents several years ago for Christmas. Since that time she has been slowly experimenting and teaching herself how to sew. Mom helped out in the beginning but her sewing skills are kind of limited. She can hem and “take in” a pair of jeans like nobody’s business, but that’s about it. I’m by no means making fun of her skills because I received a sewing machine several years ago for Christmas as well and still haven’t even figured out how to thread the darn thing.
