Wedding Day! My Gift to Rob

















{Click to get a closer look - apologies for the reflection in the photo} Here's the gift I gave to Rob on our wedding day. I made this little collage from leftover wedding invitations on a quiet weekend after watching too much Michel Gondry. The scene on the left is the San Francisco skyline and a taxi. On the right is our apartment building and tandem bike.

I had it framed at the little shop down the street and kept it a secret wrapped in brown paper until our wedding day. Rob liked it so much that he hung it on the front door of the club for all our guests to see. We still need to find the right place to hang it in the house.

How beautiful and meaningful! Your life is so amazing to me...it seems a life based on quality and inspiration and being rather than quantity and competition and having.

And to me, thats remarkable.

Wow, this is amazing. I cannot believe the detail. How did you eboss the curtains so beautifully and make the tiny bike, car, etc?

Sarah said...

that's "emboss."

The curtains we're already embossed as part of our wedding invitations. And I made everything else by cutting it out from other scraps. Ironically, I made the whole thing with not-that-sharp bonsai scissors.
