the beginnings of a wedding dress!

The idea that I have on paper made its way to fabric today! In my first class I learned so much! Draping, pattern cutting, pinning and so much more. This is going to be so much fun, and my teacher Nora is so nice.

First we padded this form so that it was the same size as me then we started draping to make my pattern.
The shop is super cute and its really fun to be hanging out with a bunch of creative ladies (there were 4 other women in my class tonight). One of the girls is 18 and she is making a killer prom dress that she is entering in a JoAnn fabrics contest where she can win $50,000.00

Class one of 3 complete! Now I'm off to do my homework!

Boredom setting in...

I don't know about anyone else, but I tend to get bored of the same old hair style month after month. I have been trying to avoid highlights because they require too much up keep. I am loving the hair feathers, but I decided I just needed a bigger change. So I took the plunge and chopped off some bangs! Its weird seeing myself in the mirror, it kinda feels like I'm wearing a wig. I think I like it...for now it will satisfy my desire for change!

Visiting Luna...

I just got back today from my little vacation to Spokane, WA. The trip was full of wedding planning and baby cuddling!
Me holding Luna for the first time.
She is such a smiley girl!
You better believe we did some thrift shopping! This little vest was one of the cutest things we found, Luna seemed to love it.
I had to make sure I didn't buy too much, I only had a carry on to get everything back to Denver in! I found this cute collapsible vintage cookbook holder that I couldn't pass up.
Luna and I did a lot of Wedding blog surfing to get some ideas for the big day this May.
The Lux fam and I enjoyed breakfast Sunday at this adorable shabby chic restaurant called Chaps.
We did a little wedding dress shopping just for fun. I am planning on making my own dress but I had to try on a few dresses just for the experience. I only have 2 pictures because Becca got scolded for taking pictures...apparently its not allowed.
I spent my last night in Spokane snuggled up to this little doll face in her Moby doesn't get much better than that!
