Hey Everyone!
So I've been a little M.I.A. lately... but with a good excuse!  The first wedding is just around the corner.  I thought I'd take a moment to update while waiting for some hair product to work it's magic on this head of mine :-)
Every spare minute, I've been working on my sweet, soon to be daughters wedding veil and sash for her dress.  I can't post pictures yet {it's a big secret!} but I sure will once they've set sail on their honeymoon. I'm hand beading the sash and it's so pretty! I knew I loved beads and bling but when you add them one glass seed bead at a time, you really grow fond.  Actually, I suppose the feelings could go either way. Hand work does take a long time but it's also rather relaxing. For the most part, it's pretty portable too, you can take it anywhere.  Well, maybe not this particular project but most others.  I'm working with clear thread, teeny glass seed beads, clear sequins, beautiful Swarowski pearls as well as several other hard to see and itsy-bitsey beautiful treasures.
The veil is single layer elbow length. I added the little Swarovski pearls along the lower edge. It looks so delicate!
My son who lives in NY, will be back out a week from today {Yay}. He's the best man and also in charge of the bachelor party which will be a week from tomorrow.
Everything is coming together so nicely but of course I will shop until the last minute to make sure I've got the best dress ever.  And shoes!  The poor UPS man has been delivering shoes for a few weeks now.  I'm sure I won't keep them all but a girl has got to have choices!   Plus I do have another wedding just 8 short weeks after this one. And dresses, can you ever have too many dresses? I don't think so.
The timer has sounded...  more later.  Hope everyone is having a great summer.
Until Next Time,

It's Officially Summer & a winner to the giveaway!

Hey Everyone!
I hope all my USA friends had a great July 4th yesterday. We had a yummy BBQ with family and some pool time. I'm loving this great weather and soaking up the vitamin D the natural way. I love summer. Going to Baseball games {GO Angels!}, the OC Fair, The Sawdust Festival, the beach, long days... lots of great memories.  Today is an especially great day because my Son in NY is actually boarding the plane now and flying home for a week! I've been having such withdrawals and I'm beyond bursting with excitement to see him tonight. I told him that I'll probably just hug and stare at him the entire week he is home. This is heaven to me, having all three boys together!  I'm so glad that he is having this great experience and the time of his life at 26 years old but truth be told, I'll be even happier when his job brings him back home!!  He's a true Cali boy at heart and he gives NY a few years.  I can handle that :-)   .... to all you Moms with young ones, I remember those days like it was yesterday. The days may go by slow but look how fast the years fly by. It amazes me that my 3 little guys are all in their 20's now. Two getting married really soon, one of them just bought a house ~ five short miles from me.  All I did was blink and they are all grown up!

Anne, over at ZEPHYR HILL, announced the winner of the giveaway to my shop.  Sherry S. won a $30 gift certificate!  Congratulations, Sherry!!!  And a million thanks to Anne and her wonderful blog ZEPHYR HILL for all the work she did.  She's amazing!

I hope everyone is enjoying family and having a great summer so far!
Until Next Time,
