Wedding Bracelet

This is the bracelet I made to match the necklace and the dress.  It’s hard to see the blue.  It looks black in the picture, but trust me it all went together.  The pearls are the same ones used in the necklace.  Now I do not know if any of you are truly interested, but since I’m trying to provide more information I got the beads from Beadagon at the Bead Show in Marlborough, MA. She goes to other shows I know.  She has the BEST pearls and the most variety.  I just put random sizes on memory wire.  I have to say I want all kinds of these bracelets in different colors with different beads. They make up fast and are fun, fun, fun to wear.  I’m almost done with wedding crafts.  Think there is just one more.  The Rehearsal Dinner Favors.  I have to get started on my five per week Christmas cards.  I have put my box of “stuff” back in my craft room out of the closet.  (My husband didn’t even mention they were there.  Wasn’t that sweet!)

I do want to share with you faithful readers of my blog (all four of you) my son wrote my husband and I a lovely letter he gave us at the Rehearsal Dinner.  It even made my husband tear up.  We raised him up GOOD.  So proud and so happy he found someone to love and share his life with.

Wedding

Here is the wedding necklace!!!  I know you have been waiting to see it.  Wedding week is over and the bride and groom are off on the honeymoon.

Everything went off really well.  It was a very moving wedding ceremony.  Their priest was excellent.  The reception was a fun, fun, party.  I think everyone had a good time.  I know I did.  There was a photo booth.  Let me just say – have one at your next party.  It was a big hit.  The DJ was excellent and my little “faux” granddaughter was introduced to the Chicken Dance and LOVED IT.

I will post other things later this week.  Thanks for your interest.

IT’S BEEN A WHILE

Happy Labor Day Everyone!!!!

Lots to report.  We are in wedding mode here.  Trying to get the house ready so people do not think we are slobs (or one of the cast of Honey Boo Boo).  We have had several house problems.  It feels like the house is falling down around us and it’s only 12 years old.  First off, we had a leaky pipe.  It seems when my husband put some cabinets up for me in the laundry room and was trying to find a stud, he found the pipe and it felt like a stud.  Water has been dripping from the upstairs shower for like five years!!!  Can you imagine?  We thought it was the washer. lol

Then there was the septic problem.  We have septic here because we live, well because we live in New Hampshire.

Then, the final and worse problem was a window that evidently had been leaking around it since the house was built because they didn’t put flashing around it.  Well there was rotten wood and ANTS.  My husband hates the ANTS.

It’s all fixed now and we have to restore order.  Like that is ever gonna happen here.

This necklace is one of the ones I made on my weekend away.  (I need another one by the way!)  It was made with the pearls I had left from making my mother in law’s, which I will post soon.  I just love it.  It goes with so many things.

I have been wearing my “wedding” shoes around the house to break them in.  THEY HURT SO BAD!  There is no way I can wear them to the wedding.  Therefore, I have been online looking for new ones.  I have ordered two pairs. lol  I pray that at least one of them arrives prior to the wedding.  Anyone ever order from Zappos or DSW?

I have been stalking the Stamp TV site again.  Ms. Gina K suggests you make five Christmas cards per week starting this week and you will have enough and not be stressing out come December 1.  Just throwing that out there.  Oh and she has some really cute stamps she is selling on sale through today.  (They should pay me or give me a discount!)

One more thing…  If you love sunflowers, check out my friend, Mary’s, blog My Stamping Hideaway.  She took some beautiful pictures of a field of them.  She also has lovely cards she makes.
