Wedding Dress

There's this show on TLC called "Say Yes to the Dress" in which women go to an uber expensive boutique to buy $5000 and $10,000 dresses. It's fun to watch all their friends and family cheer and jeer at each dress. I didn't really get that opportunity because I bought my dress online, so now I'm hoping I'll have some gal pals come over and let me try the dress on for them. I lured them in with promises of chick flicks and girl bonding, which I plan to uphold. I hope they won't mind me throwing in that extra dress part.

Etsy Plans

I've decided to start an etsy shop, and I'm pretty excited. I love to craft, and . I really try not to accumulate stuff since I have so much of it already, but I love making things, so now I can basically consider this an excuse for crafting. The name of my shop (cleverly enough) is Closet Beauty, and the idea is that I will make pretty things for the closet/armoire/dresser/vanity.
So I'm writing down ideas for myself of things I'd like to make, just for my own personal record.

Hand painted clothes hangers
Origami trinket boxes
Tiny bejeweled picture frames
Lip-glosses in pretty tins
Fabric clothing covers (because plastic ones are bad for clothes)
Hand-painted vanity trays
Pretty smelling sachets
Candles in sugar-bowls or other ceramic trinkets

Hm, now I'm quite excited!!
