Getting ready for V-day!

When the one holiday that is most dreaded by many, we must do all we can do to lift everyone's spirits. Which holiday? I speak of Valentine's Day--the day where single people are painfully aware they are such, dating people are painfully aware of their obligation to buy that perfect something that isn't too much or too little, and where married people finally have an excuse to actually go out for dinner (although for college students, it rests as a reminder of the slim figure of their piggy bank...). Here is my latest project that I made out of:

A wire hanger
Leftover material from my last skirt project
The fake rose my dad sent me for Valentine's Day my first year in college

Tear the strips, tire them around the wire, and voila! :)

Happy birthday to me!

When my cousin Danna turned 22, she bought herself a tutu for her two-two, and I wanted to steal the idea. Unfortunately, by the time I realized my birthday was nearly on my doorstep, it was too late to order one. I have been perusing Pinterest for a while now though, and I knew I wanted a ruffled skirt. So I went to DI, bought my materials, and sewed myself a new ruffle skirt. Happy birthday to me!

PS-please ignore my lack of photography skills and sewing errors. I'm pretty proud of myself considering this is my first wearable sewing project!

Reception pics round 2!

And a few more :)

A few reception pics :)

Ok, so here are the first few of some of my favorite pictures from our wedding reception held at my Aunt Ginny's house in Idaho. Hope you like them! I'll post some more later because I don't think I can put more than 5 at a time...or I don't know how to use the contraption called the of the two!
