The Dresses are Done and…

THE BALL IS TONIGHT!

sidebar…

I figured out the sidebar issue!
Apparently it had something to do with the formatting or something in just one of my posts, so I had to go back and fix that.

Glad to have that fixed! 😀

Oh, and:

THE BALL IS TOMORROW AND THE DRESSES ARE DONE!!!  
Pictures to come soon!!! 😀 😀 😀

Hairdo!

Ok, so when you see the curling irons out, you know that hair is gonna be done…


and it certainly was!! Marianne practiced my (Margaret’s) hair-style I want for the ball! We based it off of Taylor Swift’s hair in the music video “Love Story”.



Not exactly the same because I have bangs…





But I think it’s definitely close!! Marianne did a GREAT job!!

The decorative headband I got from Claire’s for $10.50, and I also got a new necklace at the same place for the same price, but you’ll see that when we post pictures of the ball! 😀

I’m excited!! 🙂

P.S. Don’t you love my “Hamot Shock Trauma” T-shirt that’s 3 sizes too big for me? Totally goes w/ the hairstyle! 😀

A Couple Random Things :-)

First, I’d like to say Happy December to everyone! 

Second, I’d like to ask: are all the features (pictures, blog buttons, labels, etc.) showing up on the sidebar for you or do you have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see them?  It’s looking kind of strange on my computer and I’m not sure how to fix it.

Third, I finished two of my deadline projects today (with Margaret’s help)!  YAY! (Thank you, Margaret!)

Fourth, I’d like to introduce you to a new Etsy shop!
Some friends of mine have just opened a new shop to sell a variety of handmade things, such as this lovely tote bag.

Please swing over here to visit this new shop and see their other products (and there’s more to come)!

Have a great Lord’s Day tomorrow, everyone!

Making Progress :-)

Besides the “Lucy” outfit, I also finished (late Saturday night), the matching dresses for B. and her doll.  I didn’t get a picture of the girl-sized dress, but here’s the doll dress.

The flower circle was scary to make but I love how it turned out!

Anyway, I am nearly done with my Regency dress, except for the hem and the back fastenings, and I finished Margaret’s bodiced petticoat (except for hemming it, which she will do).  That means all I have to do is make her Regency gown and we’ll be ready (clothing-wise) for the ball!  Well, except, we still need to get gloves… going to run to the mall sometime early next week as we heard they have gloves at Icing.  We got really cute shoes at Walmart that look very Regency.  Maybe I’ll get pictures later to show you.  At any rate, you will be seeing pictures from the ball (if all works out as planned) and then you’ll see the dresses, shoes, and (hopefully) gloves. 🙂
