Wedding stuff: our CD wedding favors


Mix CD wedding favors, what what! We wanted to make mix tapes instead, but that would have taken SO long, and we just didn't have enough time. I drew this up in pen, colored it in with crayons and then made photo-copies in black & white, on cream colored paper, and glued them onto paper disc sleeves. Some might call it hokey, but I call it love. I feel like I'm some sort of a recovering perfectionist, or something. An imperfectionist? uh, sure. So I dig it alright.

Every good mix has a beginning, middle, and end. This mix wasn't our best, but we wanted it to include what we listened to on our drive down to California, what we listened to during the short period that we lived there, and finally, what we listened to on our way back up to Washington. We both have eerily similar taste in music (and everything else for that matter), and Franklin's first gift to me a long long time ago was this really amazing mix CD, which he named, "From the Land of the Mole People". Through it, I was introduced to a lot of my favorite bands. So a mix-CD wedding favor seemed pretty fitting for us. I think you might have to sign up on before it'll let you access it, but you oughta LISTEN TO IT --> (Click here and you can listen to it while you click around on the internet!)
