2  Daisy Flower Head Wreath for My Wedding in Weddings and Bridal Showers by TheSapphireMoon on: April 13, 2017 05:42:03 AM
Hi, hi, everyone!

I've been absent from this site for a number of years now, mostly due to 'life' in general, but I'm back on track to getting my craft on Smiley

In other news, I'm getting married on October 8th this year!!  Super excited!  I've been creating a few wedding crafts here and there, mostly just decorating some store-bought items like birdcages and lanterns.  We're doing a renaissance/medieval-inspired, Celtic-style wedding.  My fiance is Scots-Irish, and we're both heavily into the medieval time period for events, dress, and other aspects of our lives, so it was just a fantastic fit.  Decorations are mostly a whimsical-woodsy feel, lots of flowers and greenery, fairies, toadstools, gnomes, stuff like that.

I found this inspiration pin HERE and crafted my creation from these photos.

Here's the finished product!!  I'm VERY impressed with how it turned out.  I really didn't know exactly how I was going to construct it, but I thought about it for the last couple months and figured it out.

And here's a few of it on my head.  There will be a white chiffon 'veil', like this worn under it for the ceremony, and then it will be just on my hair for the reception like it's shown here now.

I think it's perfect!  I love the extra fullness that I created on mine versus the inspiration piece.  May swap the lace on the back for either white or sunny yellow satin ribbon, not sure yet.  Will have to try the piece on with my dress and decide later on.  Dress is being custom-sewn by a local seamstress in my town.  Because it will be handmade, I'll post it in the sewing board with the creator's permission if I'm allowed.

Thanks for looking, comments/questions welcome Smiley

OK, so I've been getting things checked off my wedding list and managed a few crafts already.

Collected vases for all my center pieces, 1 wood slice and 3-4 vases per slice on each table.  I'll end up with some leftover vases and wood if I don't have the 100 people I've budgeted for on supplies and just shift the extras around to other places like the gifts table and stuff.

Bought bird cages and lanterns and decorated them with ivy and moss and battery LED strings

I also tied ribbons around 60 or so bubble wands in our colors of dark green and yellow and a few in cream lace.  There were about 20 or so with white ribbon attached already.  They were gifted to me from a co-worker, leftover from her niece's quinceanera (15th birthday party).

Going to probably work on my headpiece over the weekend or next week.  I have all my supplies for it now.

I'll be getting fresh flowers for the bouquets and centerpieces, silks for other misc decor like what I've already done.  My florist is giving me the hookup!!

SO excited that everything is coming together so well Cheesy  I've even bought a few crafted items from Etsy for some signs and stuff.  Gotta support the small businesses where I can.

Can't wait until Bobby and I find a house to rent so I can put my craft room back together again and REALLY hammer out some items.

On a side-note, I need to get ahold of some soap savers for some handmade soaps I bought in Colorado last month...wish I could knit or crochet!

smashu, you do such great work with your corsets and bras and, well, EVERYTHING!

Here are some of my recent TM patches, these 2 pictures are of ones up in my STS:

The ones in the second picture I made a bit differently than the regular TM style.  I made them with the backing being larger than the top piece, with the batting in between, and then the backing folded over and stitched down to the front to cover the raw edges.

And, THESE....are ones made and part of my personal collection Smiley

I haven't gotten much of a chance to include more charms, and have only used some scant beads and buttons on them.  I like the look that the embroidery alone gives them, the textures created with the fabrics and batting.

Here's a few of my faves, click for a bigger pic if you want!

Forgot about adding a couple stuffs to my shop, an embroidered flour sack towel and rib knit fabrics.


Washed 3 loads of fabrics in the last couple days Shocked  EEK!!!  All of it is stuff I bought or got through personal swaps or STS over the last 6 or 8 months.  I let it build up to a large pile before I bother edging and washing unless it's something I need ASAP for a project I start or am in the middle of when I realize I need something, then I edge and wash with the current week's clothing loads.  Now, this means I have 3 loads of fabric to iron and fold so it can get put away Tongue  I'm completely out of storage space for fabric until I start making things with it!  LOL!

LOL on the craft supplies diets Grin  Which brings me to my reason for posting at this moment, I've 'trimmed the fat' from my own craft room in the form of a HUGE grand re-opening of my shop!  TONS of new supply items, a couple new crafted items (with more to come soon, I'm sure!), and several new freebies in the top of my shop.

Here's a sampling...

Been out of the loop for a bit, doctor's appt's for surgery prep as well as getting financials in order beforehand have been taking up a lot of time.

Here's my 2 awesome patches from Oodelally!!

I'm in love with the butterfly one!  And we all know what a button freak I am.  The fabric scraps will likely be making an appearance in a couple of TM projects I've got planned out in my head.

Detail shot on the butterfly:

Was the glittery-ness printed on the fabric, or did you do that?  Simple embroidery and nothing else can be some of my most fave embellishment on these Smiley

Thanks so much!  I had great fun creating my patches and I'll surely be back for another round Smiley
