I am seriously thinking ofre doing all my zippers, just going out buying all the invis zips I can find ripping them all out of my costumes and seeing what happens.. however the onlything tht keeps me from doing so is the fact taht the vevlet is very fragile.....  btu my zipper sewing is appaling... :(

I just finished the cranberry dress and I have the pics of the gwen dress so....  first, the trim the step by step (just 'cause. ;p )

the trim )

now on the cranberry dress

and now onto Gwen, I just found this trim at Hancocks and I just grabed it i think it was 7 bucks a yard, and I got 3 yards of it, it really is better in person, and I found the beads (the weights) there as well, and the terquoise beads are from the victory dress of mine, I still have a load of beads fromt aht one! ;p (speaking of recycling the beads on the trim are from the hope dress. ;p ) 

but here it is

okay well i think taht is all the pics I can spam you guys with, but ey, i put them behind cuts so you have to give me credit for that! anyways... I'm off to find lucnh....

oh boy I'm tired!  I'm gonna take a nap in a few.. but sheesh its HOT!  anyways..  I didn't do much at work, we ate snacks all day so.. ;p  everyone seems in a good mood but Mom is sick. :(  hmmm...  I think you guys have made me make up my mind... or at least give me a push tword two costumes.....  cranberry, or the water gown.  and if I have the money I'll get on to motee... I think I wan tto get silk velvet, but I'm still not too sure.. but the two main ones are the top two.  now, ina bink a bottle of ink....... ;)  

you know I waas thinking, its amazing how uplifting you guys are, really, i can feel totally down in the dumps, but you guys are fantastic.  *hugs everyone*  thank you very much. and reading  the "letters" from [personal profile] logospilgrim is very nice too.  I applaud you all fror getting me out faster then I've ever gotten.  and a heartfelt thatnk you to you all.  

I've been feeling like a airhead (heh, Fairy.. ;p )  and can't really think and words aren't making sense right now, its like I read and it doesn't make sense, but I do my best.  I'm worrying about school lately though. the GED mostly though.. but the more I think about it  the more I wan tto get a shop done and school done and traveling!  but it all starts with the GED.  so that is on my adgenda..  look for the GEd.  now I really am tired and I don' have much time, but I love you all once again, thank you!  but anyways.. I'm off for a nap!  now the dual begins between costumes... ;p

this makes me sleepy, (the beading, not hte typing. ;p) but anyways.. I definatly have to get some smaller pearls for the big flowers. but the pearls I have are perfect for the small flowers. so thats thire use... but I fear I still have to plot out the emb pattern on te skirts today, I think I'll be done putting the pearls on before long (I've already done 2 sides of the bodice) and I don't want to do the seeds beads till I have the pearls on so.... but anyways.... here is the link to the pearls I want


I'll probably get about 10 starnds of these too. but while I', ordering from them I might as well get a few red seed beads and some gold for the cranberry and I'll see if they have green iris... so..



http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H152423SB hmm a bit too much... but still its about the same as the otehr ones and more of them..... back to beading!
