During my first year of college I became friends with a really cool lady. She gave me her number so we could keep in touch. Her number was on a calling card. A calling card? It was such an awesome, retro thing that I just had to take up the tradition. No more writing my number, email address and other contact information on a lousy Post-It. You wanna get a hold of me? Here's my card....
My scanner isn't working appropriately so I had to copy+paste these babies in multiple steps. I really liked doing it that way. And it gave the cards a very kitschy DIY look. Comments welcome and thanks for looking!
So I've been making these cute little paper crane ornaments for a Christmas craft fair. I'll be renting a table and selling these, along with some other things. They handmade from Japanese rice paper and glazed for sturdiness and durability. I'm only showing you one because because each crane is the same, except for the pattern of the paper/beads.
In your opinion, what is a good price? What would YOU pay for this little critter to hang on your Xmas tree? From what I've heard, they look great hanging in a window, too!
I've been searching the internet and craftster for a fairly simple batwing/flutter sleeve tutorial. Is it somewhere on this site and I'm just missing it? Does anyone know of a link? Or maybe someone could give me a quick tute!
Any help would be great. I really like the look of batwing/flutter type sleeves and would love to give a top with them a try.
Can anyone direct me to some kind of tutorial or free pattern on how to make an empire maxi-length dress? I'm in absolute need, as I want to make my own dress for my wedding in June. Anything would be much appreciated! It doesn't have to be "formal," in fact, I'd like a more bohemian, down-to-earth feel.
I would really, really love to make a dress like this to wear to my wedding! J. Crew also makes a Talitha patchwork dress, which is just stunning (and sold out already!) but I just adore this style. Anybody know how I could do something like this? Maybe someone has the skills to draw up a simple little pattern? I'd owe you forever!!
Well, my scanner is giving me attitude tonight, or it could be that it's new and I have no idea what I'm doing. So, the words are blurry, ugh. *Curses the fact that everyone seems to have flawless pictures but me!!* But, hopefully you get the idea. Our wedding colors are light blue and true red.... so, despite the blurriness, what do you think?
I'd really like your opinions about the wedding colors I'm thinking of. The light blue in the picture (on the box) is pretty much the color of my dress. I want to add some ribbon to it and I'm stuck on which color. The red or the light green. I like all the colors together, but I'm still stuck. I'd love to know if you think any of these colors work together and which ones work the best. Thank you so much!!
Oh, and my wedding will be held outside in June. So that's why I'm trying to give a more springy feel to my colors as well.
(sorry for the link... still haven't figured out the whole picture hosting with craftster thing!)
So, I've finally decided the theme. Cherry blossoms. Also, the colors are aqua blue and cherry red. I've started fiddling with some Save the Date cards. What do you think of them so far? I'm thinking of adding in our colors, but I also really like the simplicity of the black and white. Anyway.... here's the link.
I'm thinking about a Zen-themed wedding, since I absolutely love Zen. Any ideas to get my mind rolling? Pictures or websites would also be really helpful! Things I've already know I like... small zen gardens and those pretty paper lanterns. Any ideas for invitations? Flowers? Decorations? Any input would be much appreciated! Thanks!!
