Wreath and next craft...

What you're seeing here is two crappy pictures that I uploaded directly from my cellphone.... isn't that awesome! I can auto upload to my blog from my phone! Ah! Sometimes I really love technology and all that it does to make my world more seamless.

Now back to the pictures: although the quality isn't quite there, the point is that I wanted to show you my wreath, all finished up and looking quite adorable if I do say so (remember that the idea originally came from Betz White). I've decided that I need to make at least 1 or 2 more. One that is dominantly white, and one more red. What do you think?
In the meantime (and in Weddingland) I've run into a bit of a dilemma. I found the most beautiful headband ever while I was ordering my dress a few weeks back. It's stunning I tell you! Oh, wait! I can mobile upload a picture of it! Sweet! Ok, so check it out. It's real cute, right? The problem here (you know, besides the fact that this picture makes my nose look absolutely GIANT) is that the headband is $200! Where do people get the nerve... charging that much for a headband? So there you are, standing in your overpriced dress, wearing your overpriced shoes and jewelry, and you think to yourself "$200 isn't that bad... I'm not wearing a veil..." and you're trying to justify it. Because in Weddingland, outrageous prices are fairly standard. Hey, I just paid $80 for glitzy buttons, $150 for pockets to be added, $150 for a sweetheart neckline and another $80 to cut off the train...(yes, paying for them to remove some of the dress). So what you need to do in this scenario is walk away. Leave the shop, get out of the dress and out of the fairy tale! I've actually been getting quite good at this... (after walking away from a $4,000 dress that I was in love with). Once you've walked away and gone home, you'll notice something in your house that needs replacing... holey socks, a holey kitchen floor, whatever. Suddenly, $200 on a headband seems a bit more ridiculous.

And this is the point that I always do my little thing where I twist my mouth to the side and say "I can make that." So yesterday I went to Michaels with a 50% off coupon and started scouting out the rhinestone scene. Oh yes, I picked some up and I fully intend to use them! I'm not sure how its going to work out, but I figured I would give all of you a little heads up about what disastrous project could be coming down the line!

So keep your eyes peeled for rhinestones or sparkly buttons or what have you, and send them my way! Stay posted....
