Also, prime it first!  You don't want to do all of that work and then have it peel away. 

I agree with the hand painting advice, too.  You will go through 8 gazillion cans of spray and still not have it covered correctly.

I spent six and a half fun fun years in Kirksville!  I was in the very last class of NMSU--and I still have a hard time with the whole Truman thing.

I also was the least crafty person in the world then.  I had to cover a notebook with fabric for a service sorority thing and instead of using cotton batting, I tried to use COTTON BALLS...and rubber cement...and not enough fabric.

It was a lumpy, bumpy disaster.

I only wish that Craftster was around back then.

Also, I lived in Nason.  At the time, the sororities lived in Brewer Hall and every time a fraternity or another sorority would come and sing to the girls inside the hall, we would go into the breezeway and throw water on them.  Ahhh... good times.  Good times.

I think you made all of the right choices.  They really are fabulous.

I am going to ask an indelicate question.  How much did it cost for you to make this?

I only ask because I am a substitute teacher and I was listening to some high school girls discuss how much they have spent on prom dresses.  Several of them have dropped more money on their dresses than I did on my wedding dress.  Seriously.  $495.  For relatively plain, mostly ugly dresses.  When did prom start costing more than weddings?

And this is just for the dress!  Accessories?  Hair?  Makeup?

I need to polish my sewing skills because my 5 year-old is going to accept no less than the beauty of your dress and in 2020 when she goes to prom, I am assuming that dresses will cost several thousand dollars if we follow the trend!

And just to reiterate,  your dress is just amazing!

Those invitations rock it!

I have been married almost ten years and my husband is a designer.  I am STILL irritated with him because he didn't design our wedding invitations.  Ours were tasteful and simple and generic, but yours are amazing!

No one remembers the plain ones, but future brides will be tucking your invites into their idea folders because they are so cool.

Your hard work is going to be appreciated by all of your guests.  Great job.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I was looking for something fun to do for Easter for the little one!  I can buy my older nieces anything with glitter on it and they go nutso, but glittering up a little one is just wrong.

If mine look half as good as yours, I will post a picture.  Don't hold your breath, though!

Thanks again!

I always love your posts!  Your style is fantastic.

I would love to see her closet with all of her fancy stuff together!

Those are super fun!

Are they hard to put together?  I have a 7 week old niece who would look quite fetching in one of those!

Sorry that you had such a terrible couple of weeks!

In the last few days, I have emailed the link to your etsy shop to at least five of my friends and relatives because my birthday is coming up and I am hoping that my less-than-subtle hints will bear fruit.

Oh, yeah.  You would think it is funny. But then you are standing in Target with a kid who is in tears because you won't buy her a pair of sequined hot pants with a bolero jacket.  And just for fun, add in a rhinestone-studded cowboy hat or a pair of fingerless gloves.

Also, everyday we have the "Can I wear makeup?" exchange.

It goes like this:

5-year-old: "Can I wear some makeup to school?"
Me:  "Are you still 5 years old?"
5-year-old: "Yes, but....I'll be six soon."
Me: "That will make all the difference."
