So I have a countdown of 2 years from this last July, I figure i should keep myself occupied SOMEHOW. It seems to be the general trouble on how to keep your mind off what you can’t control or help out .
I saw this
and I new I needed to know what it was. They’re fabric?!?!?! can you believe it. I seriously want one of those flowers as a clip tp wear on my purse or in my hair.
Do you know how much one of them costs? $70. for just one.
That’s when I figured I could make them. It would take a lot of time and attention. Who knows how long it could take to perfect something like that?
I need something to take my mind of stuff. This seems like the perfect way! To all my waiting bees, I say take up a craft! Something you can throw yourself in, and when you’re done you feel like you’ve progressed a bit.
I’m going to learn how to make those gosh darn flowers. And before I know it, 2 years will be here!

That is pretty… my waiting mechanism is to just workout and focus on school that way when he does pop the question I will shocked lol… But maybe I will consider a craft!

I need a waiting coping mechanism that doesn’t involve reading online articles about signs he won’t propose and quoting him the statistics about how unlikely it is he will ever propose. Yeah, not proud about that but sometimes I just can’t help myself lol!

I have an idea for our wedding… A shag rug with our favorite things intertwined/blended together type of design.

Crafts are fun, I started working on my veil back when SO and I were talking ring designs… I finished before he ever had the ring in his posession lol Now that he has the ring in his posession (since Feb) I’ve started working on paper stars (I love making them and I want to incorperate them in with the favors in some way) I’m about halfway done with them… Crafts will keep you occupied, but then when you finish the project you’ll want to beat your SO with them if he’s not your Fiance by that point lol

Those flowers are pretty! I really wonder myself how they do them.
annasaf83 – can you post some photos of your paper stars ? it sounds interesting, I would love to see it.
I am a very crafty person and decided I want to start making my own scented soy candles. I decided this before the summer however with house projects and painting haven’t purchased the supplies yet. But soon 🙂
