Don't mind my 'concentrating' facial expression. I have to be perfectly still in order for my phone to take a "quality" photo.
- I'd like to add pearls to the ribbon on the bottom. As you can see, still a work in progress!
DIY paper flower bouqet:
This is my DIY paper flower bouqet that I've started. Unfortunately, I thought the blue was more of a green, but when it was wrapped against the lime, it formed this blue-ish color and I will most likely not be using this in my wedding. Still cute though!! .. and very tedious!

DIY bubbles that I added ribbon to:
This photo uploaded with some weird lines haha.. but yes, these are my 100 bubbles and those are 100 assorted (green, white, and brown) ribbons on each. I think it gives the bubbles some personality ;)
Green ribbon as you can see is a sheer color. The white ribbon says "Perfect Pair" in a glittery brown font. and the brown ribbon has little white flowers, too cute!!
I got this idea from Michaels, it was a picture on top of one of the isles for advertising!
Bubbles were purchased in a package of 100 for 14.99 on sale, originally 20$! (ya!)
These Pomanders I added a DIY to:
I bought 8 white rose pomander balls at Michaels 2.50 ea. originally 5$(ya!)
Mom thought of the idea to get a brown hydrangea plant and to cut the flowers off and glue them into the pomander itself... cute?! Then I added a sheer brown ribbon..
We also made 2 green hydrangea added (lol) pomanders with green ribbon.
I'm completely addicted to DIY wedding projects. I got such good sales at Michaels yesterday!! It seemed that almost half of the entire wedding stock was on sale!
I even purchased the white/brown stones for my centerpieces originally 2.50 for 99cents!! woop woop.
I've got lots more to make/post, stay tuned!! <3
***5/17: update ***
DIY hangers (Anna style):
Hangers were purchased in a 5 pack at Old Time Pottery for 5$. They were already pinkish/purple (Not our wedding colors, but they're girly).
I added a pink flower to the tops of them, along with a few rhinestones on the corners, middle and right below the flowers. The plan is to add the MOH, and BM's initials to the left and right of the flower!
My Gorgeous Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) Bebe! She's the love of my life! (Fi really enjoys her too) ;)
Here's a fun pic of Fi and I... So stinkin' cute!
New :) 6/27/10
**More to come ;)**
Well.. today is the big day! (5/17/10)
I've been working out of town due to a job i accepted about an hour 1/2 away.. and have been staying with my mom. To update y'all, fi and I have been looking at rings for the last 3 weeks.. so I knew it would be coming soon, but didn't quite have an idea of the details.. (I have been calling him fi for the last 2 weeks.. hehe)
Today I drove back to Tampa and walked in the door with all my bags. He asked if I wanted a nice bubble bath :) ..of course, who wouldn't?! So I walked into the bathroom and he had candles lit everywhere. He told me to get in and lay down and he turned out the lights. I noticed something glowing from the ceiling and therefore looked up, and he had "Will you marry me?" written on the ceiling in glow in the dark paint!! I looked over @ him and he was on one knee with my ring in hand ;)
He's a sweetie. Always been good at throwing me off!
He had been tricking me for the last couple of days telling me he couldn't afford the ring i wanted and that he had stopped at a few other places and he had found some better deals.. I was upset cause i fell in love with this one ring...
its now on my finger, yay!!!!
