The Veil

I have the flu.

Yeah. My thoughts exactly.

Thankfully, Brent and Maze have already been inflicted so we should all be in tip-top shape for the Thanksgiving holiday later this week. And for those of you non-Americans who read my blog, this coming Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the BIGGEST shopping day of the year! Make sure you check out your favorite American online shops for smoking deals all weekend!

Now that's out of the way, I wanted to share with you a little (very little) about what's been going on. We were on vacation. Came home. Three broken computers. Commission projects. Illness. Beautiful weather. Bikes. Parks. Walks. One fixed computer. Broken SD/USB stick. More bikes. More parks. You get the idea. This is the best time of year here in Arizona and we've been taking full advantage!

So, I'm not dead. I haven't contracted some rare disease (knock on wood). I've just had some technology glitches that I haven't been in a huge hurry to fix because I'd rather be outside with my WALKING daughter!! Yup. You read right. She walks wobbles now.

But I braved the treacherous waters of the broken computer because I wanted to share something special with you I've been working on.

Angela's Veil

My friend Angela got married a couple months ago and asked me to make her veil for the wedding. I was completely nervous as I'd never made a veil before, but also completely honored that she would even think to include me in such a special way.

Angela is the one in the blue dress.


I took a couple pictures myself, but none of the finished veil (d'oh!) so I was extremely grateful to her very talented photographer cousin who took these pictures for me while she was getting ready.

Each bead was sewn on one at a time. I wanted this to be perfect! Plus, it gave me an excuse to sit on the couch and watch the entire Arrested Development series again. Bonus!
