1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Fall wedding color questions on: August 08, 2011 07:58:31 AM
I'm getting married October 29th (or at least thats the ceremony, actually paper signing is on the 31st since its our anniversary). Its technically a fall wedding though I live in Louisiana and other than some dropped leaves much will still be green. Our wedding and reception are outside and we have a really great venue.

Its a small wedding with no wedding parties. So I don't have any bridesmaids dresses to worry about. We are diy-ing pretty much everything. All of the color will be in the decor. I haven't been able to settle on a color sceme yet. I know I shouldn't go with really pastel spring colors but I don't want the red and oranges associated with fall. So these are the colors I'm thinking...







Sunflower yellow and dark and light shades of purple/lavender.
What do you think? Is it appropriate for fall?
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Last minute vampire costume... very late post on: January 20, 2010 09:25:59 AM
I had to wait until a friend posted her pictures from halloween to post them here. Originally I was going to be a peacock but I looked for months to try to find some blue fabric I was happy with and never did. So literally the day before halloween I took stock of what I had around the house and made something.

The corset is from fabric from an old prom dress my sister didn't want and I took the bustle off of that one too but I don't have a picture of it (which is a shame cause It really made the dress. And the skirt is actually an underskirt from a different old prom dress, which took some work since someone put their heel through it, lol. I used zip ties for the boning.

This is also my first attempt at a corset, which I learned alot making this one. I should have put the grommets closer together. I should have also took in the measurements at the waist more too... it looked a little boxy on.









3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Pillow for my soon to be bedridden boyfriend. on: May 13, 2008 08:03:40 AM
I don't know the name for it but I want to make one of those pillows that has arms on it so you can sit up in bed. My boyfriend is having reconstructive surgery on his ankle in a little over a week and he has to stay off his feet (other than bathroom breaks, in which I will become a crutch) for at least 2 weeks Cry. Even after that he'll be confinded to bed/couch for a while. I think it would be nice to have for him so he can play video games and read in bed.

Does anyone know of a pattern I can whip up for it? Or is this something that is better bought? Maybe I should just buy a pattern? I've made the basic pillows before free hand but this is different.

Thank you for reading and any help would be appreciated!
