Our 1 Year anniversary photos taken today at our wedding venue. <3
Front door wreath I made for the holidays of 2013. Its inner shape is made from a pool noodle from the dollar store, taped into a ring using masking tape. I refashioned the burlap table runners from our wedding into strips that I wrapped around the ring, only leaving a little space between each layer. Once the whole ring was wrapped, I cut squares of burlap, maybe 3 or 4 inch squares, and folded them in half to make a triangle, then again in half to make a smaller triangle. Using the help of a flat head screwdriver, I stuffed the folded corner under the layer edges until I had about a third of the wreath done. I then used another square of burlap to hot glue and arrange the flowers from the dollar store to make a removable broach. Using a long quilting pin, I secured the broach on the inside and outside of the wreath. Lastly, I purchased a letter for our last name from Michael’s craft store and secured it with some hot glue to some burlap cord, also left over from our wedding, to dangle the letter from the top of the wreath, and from the wreath hanger from the dollar store. :-)
Pumpkin Topiary I made for the holidays of 2013. The bottom two pumpkins were made from stuffing a plastic shopping bag with paper, shaping into a pumpkin with string, then adding layers of paper mache (home made paste and newspaper), spray painting with a primer, painting with acrylic paints, then finishing with a clear varnish spray. The top pumpkin is from the dollar store, with a layer of paper mache, and paint/varnish like the other two pumpkins. They are stacked and skewered with a portion of a tiki torch stake from the dollar store. The faux leaves are hot glued between each pumpkin layer. Its weighted with rocks from the dollar tree, as well. :-)
I swear, there are just no words to describe this feeling. Gerard won’t speak to me. Yesterday, at least he said stuff through text, today he gave me the minimalist answer he could, usually being just a single word. This isn’t a marriage. This is punishment. This isn’t just being grounded by your parents kind of punishment, this is isolation. I know that I fucked up, but he is taking his role too goddamn far. He is making what he did something that it is not, and is therefore isolating me until he is through being angry. This is the 3rd day that I’m stuck in our bedroom. I can’t sit in the fucking living room, even, because he is out there and won’t say a word to me or even look at me. I feel so cast aside, like something so worthless. I feel like how Sabrina made me feel. I’m just supposed to buck up and take it, I’m not supposed to feel…feel anything but punished. I feel like a poor animal, unable to leave and feel freed from this, just chained to my obligations and wondering when it will end.
Yeah, he has a right to be mad…but isn’t this going farther than just being mad?
xirose asked: Hey I just saw your wedding day pictures - first off, CONGRATULATIONS! Secondly, your dress is GORGEOUS - would you mind telling me where you got it? I am currently hunting for a dress like that!
Aww, thank you so much! The dress can be found at most bridal stores, its by Maggie Sottero. The dress is called Adorae. There are two versions of it, so if you Google it, you will find tons of images. It cost a little over $1200 here in CA, it may vary depending on your location. It can also be ordered for a short term engagement, mine took I think 7 weeks. :-) It sounds like you’re probably engaged and looking, so CONGRATULATIONS, too!! If there is anything I learned from getting married, you CAN do it in 4 months (I did!), you CAN have an amazing wedding for under $5000 (ours was about $3000), and no matter what, just take it as it comes, you won’t remember most of it when its over, so spend the bulk on photographers n a videographer and enjoy every moment. Good luck, sweetie!!!
Hubby and Bestie celebrating my 29th birthday with me. <3 So lucky!!!
I feel like I should be shamelessly promoting my jewelry on here to drive business to my etsy shop…should I, or shouldn’t I?
