DIY: Fabric Rosettes

DIY: Fabric Rosettes  Originally uploaded by Sanctuary-Studio

For perspective these rosettes are about 2 inches in diameter. I made them using this tutorial by Little Birdie Secrets.  These are going to be used in a feathery hair piece I'm currently working on but they also look fantastic bunched together in the necklaces shown in the tutorial link!

Wedding: Real life Super Heroes!

I just read a post from a Tribe member on OffbeatBride.com in which she asked "What does the wedding party actually do?"

A commenter responded....
"The bridesmaids are supposed to confuse your would-be kidnappers on the way to the wedding.  The groomsmen are supposed help your man if he has to kidnap you and fight his way out.  :-)" [via The Bizarre Origins of Eight Wedding Traditions]

Life: Happy Birthday, Farilla!

Pi Day Birthday Cake

My Love,

On this grand day of 2011 we joyously celebrate your day, The Birth of Funk!  A day which serendipitously falls on the most notable (and always celebrate-able) Pi Day!  2011, dubbed The Year Of All Things Awesome, also marks the year I will become your wife!  For this, I count my blessings daily!  You are my dream come true.  Thank you for filling my life with laughter.  Thank you for introducing red velvet cake to my tummy.  And thank you for getting my ass out of bed in the mornings so we can run off all that cake we ate day before.

I love you to no end!

Truly, Madly, Deeply...
