This blog has been everything: from it's original intention to be a place to find myself, to a book review blog, to simply taking up space. It has, however, consistently been named "Notes From A Fool," and it always seems to encompass everything I'm going through. I'm going to be keeping this as a way for my close friends to come together to see some of my wedding ideas. And, of course, for the fool (myself) to post some of my rants and raves.

We won't be using these, but I saved them because I thought it might be a possibility. However, even though now I know we won't be using them, I had to share them with you all. I'm not sure if anybody is even reading this blog, but if anybody is, I'd love some comments!!
Anyway, this is an easy idea of making matchbook favors. Look how awesome they are:
If you check out the tutorial, you'll see how completely simple they are! And, they solve the forever favor problem of appealing to both sexes. Not every man can appreciate a nice sugar scrub, but I assure you that everybody can find a use for matches at one time or another. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you could make these extra special by including a candle, and a little note that says something like, "You watched us get married today and we really appreciate you being here to share our love. Please take this candle and matches and take a moment or two for yourself. Relax and know that we love you dearly."
Okay, that's borderline mushy and sappy. But, I'm a total sucker for sappy, so it would totally work on me. But, whatever. I literally just wrote that off the top of my head, but I'm sure you clever people out there could think of something better. The point is that something even as simple as a matchbook can be used to create a favor that is truly thoughtful.
