Right now I am in the dead heat of wedding planning. The big day is less than two months away, and there are still quite a few details that need to be dealt with. Ultimately, if it were up to me, none of this would be going on, but never the less, I'm doing it for the love of my family who would love nothing more than to see this day happen. sigh.
Being the DIY person that I am, this wedding at least gives me the opportunity to be creative with all of those little details. Over the next few nights, I will be converting my strapless dress into a floral one shoulder gown.
Another thing I did was this past weekend for my bridal shower (which was a lot of fun). I needed something cute and comfortable, so I ended up making my dress. Here is what the dress looked like:
This is what I'm gearing up for people!!! I'm trying to create lots of cool spooky/DiadelosMuertos themed items as well as great fall accessories. Don't miss this event! It's on Halloween. Visit BLinkDesignonline to get a sneak peek of what's available.

Both are available for purchase. Go to to my online store for more items.
My "Burgundy Poppy Hair Pins" were featured on the front page of Etsy.com about 2 hours ago. I just found out about it :) As a result, traffic to www.blinkdesign.etsy.com SKYROCKETED! Take a look at the other items that were featured on the front page with me.
Right now I'm working with a lot of fabrics. I love Winter accessories, however I live in Texas, and down here, we're lucky if it dips below 60 during the fall. I've designed several of these great ruffled scarves that are incredibly soft, lightweight, and cozy. Click on the photo to see larger/more images and/or to purchase online, or come by my store. I've got several of each color in stock.
