1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / STD:s and Invations Finaly finished on: March 02, 2008 10:02:43 AM
I've finally finished all the invations, and they've been sent out, We sent the STD:s in the autum.

This is what we (me and h2b) made

for the STD:s we got magnetic paper on ebay, and printed out the wedding information on the magnetic paper on our home printer. I think they was ok. The graphic was a little bit pixilated, cause we couldn't find a cherry branch in tiff format online.

then we made a square card from cardstock bought from Ebay, and stamped  with a dandelion stamp in teal. I Love teal

We then cut little slits in the card and inserted the Std magnet. So that it would look nice when people opened it.

And this is the finished result

The invitations was a much larger overtaking.
We first bought all paper, blue, ivory and blue on Ebay.


I had really set my mind on having a pocketfold as I really like them, but wasn't able to find any paper big enought in the UK that made sure that you could make one according to the tutorials you can find on the net. So I bought A4 paper on ebay, and the cut that in half on lengthwise. I then cut all the pockets out from other paper, and scored and folded and double taped them on untill my eyes bled :-). Then my H2B attached all the blue ribbon, and the last part for the pocket fold was to print our guest names on the ivory card stock, attach it to the brown 5*5 square and put that in front.

For the inside.

In the end I got a real nice pocket fold, and then we downloaded a free graphic on a educational site, that has botanical prints. I uploaded it into Artweaver (downloaded free as well), and changed the colour to a tealy/turquise blue

We wrote all our text, and made the information card, rsvp card, and map and printed it on our home printer. We then cut them all down to the correct size. And hey presto they where finished. It took quite a long time. But since I like fippling about with stuff that didn't matter.

Now I have finished all the wedding favours for the girls. (they all get sterling silver pendants with a gemstone in that I've made). But I have no idea what to do for the boys. I want it to be budget friendly, as we make almost everything for the wedding ourselves, and not take a huge amount of time as you know, we do have a limited amount of time and budget. Any suggestions??

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / The colour for my summer is blue on: June 12, 2005 12:05:26 PM
As you can tell my favourite colour is blue. SO I made this "Collection" of necklaces for the summer to wear...All I need now is a pair of shoes...And some sun..

Blue necklace with Shell Pendant.

This necklace Is made of Moon stone, sterling silver blue foil beads and some Crystal beads.
The necklaces lock is where the "longer" string, it's good cause it falls down your back. Which I kind of like.

This is a combination of a ball chains, and turquise beads. It's very good to wear for strong colour when my clothes are really bland

What do you think
thanks for looking

6  ASIA / Japan / Bead Shop in Tokyo and Singapore on: May 04, 2005 09:20:51 AM

I might have the opportunity during this spring to go to Tokyo and Singapore with work. And I was planning to see and do some more things then the office ( I hope)..

But what I really would love would to know wheter anyone have any good tips for Bead shops in Tokyo or Singapore, since it would help me to waste away the weekends alone in a big city..and It would be helpfull to know what I'm looking for since I wont be able to read any of the signs. I would love to be able to buy something that would be hard to find in the Uk

thanks so much regards maria
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Jewelly Holder with extra pouch holder for bits and bobs on: February 27, 2005 03:01:04 PM
I make lots of jewellery, and I love jewellery. So when I travel I used to bring it all in a huge plastic bag, and all the necklaces would end up being tangled.

So I got a bit inspired by a wrench holder I saw to make something that could hold it all. The whole holder is lined with fleece fabric, so that nothing will get hurt.  My plan is to make a matching little pouch for my sunnies.

The pouch in one end of the holder is for smaller things, like rings, and earings and other bits and bobs. Mayebe something sparkly :-)

This is the outside...it's a well themed fabric I think :-).

The Inside:

I attached the little holders, and you attach the neklace/braceletts etc throught them Like so.....

I have made both necklaces displayed, there is one with freesh water pearls and citrines, and the other is glas beads.

This the way it looks folded up.

I'm rather pleased cause I'm going on holiday on tuesday and I can use it and carry all my things in...

what do you reckon
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Matching Skirt and Handbag on: February 14, 2005 04:13:57 AM

A matching skirt and handbag.A bit tacky I know. But well funny :-) And great for summer statment making days!

I bought the fabric at IKEA for about 2 pounds per meter. The first time I wore skirt I met another girl in the same skirt, same pattern and all in the elevator of my friends house. She had bought hers at Topshop.

I think we must have looked very funny walking out of the elevator.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / New Loud Sari Fabric skirt and how rude is it to wear white to a wedding?? on: February 14, 2005 03:57:30 AM
I made this skirt. I'ts rather loud. I rarely wear prints, or embroidered stuff so it's really a new thing for me to wear.

Anyway, I was going to wear it to a wedding. Just realising that I would have to wear a white top, otherwise I think it would be to much colour for me.

So...hence the question. I know the rules for what you can wear as a guest to a wedding is differetnt in different countries. I'm attending a wedding in australia, my boyfriend says you can wear a white top.
Whereas where I'm from you would not wear any white, at all, under any circumstance. Nor would you wear black ( it means wishing bad luck and horrible things to the couple) or red (it's hinting that you've slept with the groom).

So, 1 please feedback on the skirt. Is it wearable, 2. can you wear with a white top to a wedding??
