One month in and what a year!

Wow, what a year 2010 has been! Within the first few second of the year, I became engaged! As the clock struck Midnight to bring us in to the New Year, Deg was on his knee, asking me to soon be his wife. He posted on facebook "Asked Mel Diesel to marry me, she said yes of course. We're dancing the night away.I never new the meaning of that until now".

We danced to our wedding song ("Only You can Love Me This Way" Keith Urban) over and over again, then some of our other memorable moment… Continue

When God Gives You Vision for Your Business Don't Be Blinded by Naysayers

I was looking for something extra to offer my clients in my Marriage Readiness Training Course. Based on my many years as a counselor I discovered many people go into marriage without a clue about the legalities of marriage. When crucial decisions need to be made they end up paying a fortune in attorney's fees to settle estates, make health care decisions (We all remember the Terri Schiavo Story), and deal with numerous other matters. So I decided to find an expert in the area of family law… Continue

Wedding Open House Update

Well, it's been quite the week! On Thursday I had planned to work on my Wedding Open House to-do list. I woke up and figured it's cold out so I'm not going to bother fussing too much with hair and makeup. I put on some comfy clothes, poured cereal and coffee and my brother calls. He's on his way to Ohio to do some things for his mother-in-law and to rescue her kitty (MIL is in nursing home temporarily-long story). So, being the nice sister I am, I ask if he would like me to ride along and keep… Continue

I Love Winter

I love the winter. My mother says that winter is the time of dead things. And I guess, in a way, she's right. But there is something about this dormant, somber season that speaks to me of possibilities. I can look at the trees and know that soon, they will be lively and green again, and the dogwoods will be sporting their lovely blooms, and the flowers will be opening to the… Continue

Vanity Fare Caterers Wedding TIp January 30, 2010

Beyond your Bridal Party, there are several other people who you will want to thank for helping to make your day special.

For delivery and security people, $5-$10 per person is customary; for hair and make-up services, 15-20% of the total bill is what should be tipped; the same tip of 15-20% of the bill is also tipped to… Continue

Wedding Invitation Junk Mail?

Whoops, looks like junk mail! Someone one recently told me a story about throwing out a wedding invitation because she thought it was junk mail! Turns out the envelope was addressed by the bride on her computer. The computer address looked mass produced therefore she made a snap judgement and the invitation wound up in the trash along with the val-pack and the real estate solicitations.

As you can imagine, as a calligrapher, hearing this story that was music to my ears! I thought I… Continue
