1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Red and Aqua Small Budget Wedding!*PIC HEAVY* New Pictures added 10-2-10 on: June 19, 2010 07:46:13 PM
So My wedding is In September of 2010. And our budget is TINY. My fiancee was laid off from his job just over a year ago, and has been in school since. We decided to get married despite the circumstances. Thankfully I'm doing a lot of DIY with help from my mom. I plan to make my dress, and do all the bouquets myself. I will be updating periodically as I make more things, but heres a start.  (questions, comments and criticisms are always welcome!)

My husband and I, after the i do's. I made my dress, total cost 200$


Here is me with my bridesmaids- we made all of the bouquets from supermarket flowers- total cost including ribbon, wire and floral tape 35$


First off- My wedding guest book- an 8x8 scrapbook ($5) with pages I made myself (paper and supplies $6) total cost- $11


I wanted people to be able to sign more than just their name. there are 20 pages and they are all different!


Next is the cake knife and server. I didnt want to spend much on these, since no one ever notices them or remembers them, but they do show up in pictures. the knife and server were both from a dollar store ($2) and the ribbon was $1.50- total cost plus tax? about $5



bow detail



Up next- pew decorations for the church. Three red fake flowers tied with ribbon. these will be on the pews with the traditional tulle swag. all supplies from the dollar tree, total cost (including the extra flowers and ribbon becuase I cant count: $15




and my necklace- not made by me, I bought it on etsy!




I finished the ring bearer pillows. they are satin (remnants from my dress) embroidered at work (I work for an embroidery comapny) and stuffed with stash. total cost? 0$ There are two becuase I have two nephews- only one will have the actual rings on his pillow.



My fiancees ring will be tied on the other end of the string- only mine is tied on in the picture.


2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Denver Broncos Coffee Cup Cozy on: January 17, 2010 04:54:28 PM
My boyfriend drinks a lot of Starbucks. A LOT of Starbucks. And he is also a Denver Broncos Fan. Last Christmas I made him a broncos stocking, and had some fabric left over, so I turned it into a Coffee Cup Cozy. (like the cardboard ones they give you, but more awesome!)

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mermaid Mini Pillows on: January 17, 2010 04:48:11 PM
I embroidered these mermaids several years ago and had no idea what to do with them. Over the summer I turned them into mini pillows (about 8"square). Hopefully soon I can find them a home. Smiley



4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 1970's vintage fabric covered umbrella on: January 17, 2010 04:43:21 PM
Sooooo I found an article on how to recover an umbrella....and I had this great 1970's fabric my grandma had given me that I knew would be perfect!







The pictures dont do it full justice, It is so much more bright and vibrant in person!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / awesome ornaments (complete w/ photos) on: November 06, 2006 05:12:31 PM
these are ornaments that i make using sequins, sequin pins, beads and styrofoam balls. its the same technique as sequined fruit, but i use pre stranded sequins for all but the double stacked sequin ornament. these are only a few of the ones i have made. i try to experiment with colors and color combinations. my most reacent discovery was adding panty lace which makes the ornament look a little softer looking.




this ornament was made by stacking two sizes of sequins together.



this one is made with panty lace and sequins spiraling around each other.



this one was made with bugle beads instead of seed beads, so it makes it spikey.

thanks for looking!

I wasnt sure where to put this, and i did see another one last week or so so i figured here is as good a place as any.

this is my first project posted up here! whoo!

anywho, its a crochet hook cozy made from awesome tie dyed fabric with metallic thread woven though it. it has panty lace elastic closures to keep it rolled up.

i made it a bit too long, so ill have to go buy some more hooks to fill it up. maybe this will motivate me to work on some of my crochet projects!

Lois
