Subject:Getting ready for my handfasting ramblings with pictures!
Time:01:30 pm
So since living on my own I have learned to budget and even how to be thrifty.

And I found I like being thrifty and having DIY projects.

I've already made my lover a crochet scarf and I'm working on making him a matching hat.

But as far as our handfasting goes we are going to wear nice clothes that we already own, a friend of mine is going to officiate the handfasting as well.

And I have made all of the following myself for very little money (Pics below)

  • a ribbon headband with pearls and red rose buds

  • a fancy pearl headpiece

  • a pearl necklace with the triple moon

  • my bouquet

  • my lover's boutonniere

  • our handfasting cord

We've also bought our handfasting rings (nice rings that were under $15) which I will have pictures of once we're 'officially' handfasted. And for my engagement ring we're using one of my grandmother's rings that my paw-paw gave her. Getting it sized was the most expensive part ($57). I'll be getting the ring back tomorrow.

Oddly enough I was supposed to have it back in the 25th of February. but when my lover and I went to pick up my engagement ring from the jeweler’s it turned out the sizing department misread the size.

Instead if sizing it down to 2.5 they sized it to 7.5 .
The manager put a rush on the resizing and said it would be ready that Friday with the correct sizing. But I got a call Thursday saying that they had some trouble sizing it down that far and it would be ready on Monday and apologized again for the delay and troubles.

I wasn't upset or anything. I let them know mistakes happen and as long as I get it back, I would be very happy.

sounds awesome

and yes sizing down to a 2.5 or 3 is tough. most rings are not designed to go that small... i carried a ring that came in size 2- size 15 and that was rare, the design had to re size the leaves and the other decor to allow for different sizes of that magnitude
