First of all, how do people post their wedding projects? I mean there are lots of "whosy-whoses wedding crafts repository". Should I start one or just post my projects as I want to? I don't have whole bunches of projects to share at the moment.

Anyway, I spent the last two days working on dyeing ties. I have wanted to do it for years and now is my chance.

Our wedding colors turned out to be purple and green. Oddly enough my favorite color is purple and his is green! So I thought about a green tie, (didn't want to force him to wear a purple one Wink)


A picture with my dress (which I am in the process of building)


After all that I dipped the tie one more time because it was still to BRIGHT, for the dress, for the suit



And two more ties, the first is pole wrapped (like the green one) the second one has salt effects

More to come and I have some tests from the dying that I will share. Let me just say OH MY GOD! Too much futzing for me! (Trying to make colors go with my dress etc.) I just like trying it and seeing what happens. As long as you have colors you know will work together, not like red and green, but red and blue, or shades of blue, shades of blue and green. Then you just do it and it is done!

Boldly going where others have probably been.
