DIY Wedding Bouquets!

1. So first I  gathered all my materials. Which for me, were the flowers I wanted, wide loose burlap ribbon, small light colored lace/burlap ribbon, floral tape, and what's no pictured are my wire cutters, scissors and pins with yellow rounded tops.

2. I began to arrange my flowers to my liking. For me, I held the stems in my hand loose and just moved them all around until I loved it :]

3. I decided to wrap the floral tape before I cut the stems. Just to be sure it was exactly how I wanted it. It leaves you hands a little waxy, but washes right off! I got my tape from Michaels.
4. Then came the cutting, which is super tough, but I got it done!

5. I wrapped the newly taped base with the wide loose burlap ribbon, and placed my pins in it. Be sure to push the pins in at an angle, so it doesn't go straight through and poke you. 

And wah-la!  Were done!
The finished bouquets! Brides (mine!) and maid of honors

Wedding Sneak Peek

I decided to give you all a little sneak peek into some of our wedding decorations! Everything is, thankfully, going smoothly. Finding everything we need at lovely prices, and really I'm finding amazingly cute things too! So what's Nott pictured above are the table center pieces that are beautiful and hand made by my mom and I, were crafty that way. I haven't decided if you'll get to see those before hand, but, we are letting our guests taking the table center pieces home at the end of the wedding, so I hope everyone ends up liking them. All the plates, napkins and cups are from target, they had irresistibly cute designs and prices! Flowers are from Michaels and Arnie. Hope you like the sneak peek! I'm pretty sure there will be more to come. Can you guess our wedding color? Lol.

Lovely News..

so for a long while I stopped blogging and started writing in my journals, short fiction and poetry, some of which have been chosen to be published and have won a few contests. I also ended up releasing my own poetry chapter book after one of my cousins passed away. Right now in life, the sun is shinning. I'm about to marry my best friend, April 4th, we're starting our lives together and it feels like a lovely cool breeze has blown over our lives. everything just feels so blissful, and I feel like sharing it with everyone.
I want to try to keep this blog alive and going, with personal stories of our everyday lives from being lazy at home, to going out to shows or traveling the world. In fact, this past February, I was in Hawaii for two weeks with Nic, it really was paradise. I'll also be adding posts of book reviews, if you don't know, I work at a book store. And maybe some DIY projects too, especially with my wedding being very DIY, ill post those projects here too!

I'm ready to bring this back :]
