Hi My name is Liseth and one of the things I remember most when I was growing up was watching my grandmother sew fabric into the most beautiful creations. That's where my love for sewing came from. I love to travel and learn different cultures. As well hike and spend time with loved ones. My future goal: I hope to one day go to Thailand and Bora Bora.

Dress blues

What is a wedding without some fun planning and some stress right? So here is my current little dilemma, I had ordered 4 of the 5 bridesmaid dresses and let the girls know I would be dropping each of their dress as they were mailed to my parents place. One of my bridesmaid told me she was expected great, oh no her dress won't work few months down the line LOL (ok no biggie, I'll try to sell it online or something). After I gave the dress to the rest of the girls my cousin text me a few days later, ummm my dress doesn't fit...again I thought ok, plenty of time fixable. I send messages to the seller and decided they will custom make me another dress and I pay for the fees. Few days later my cousin sends me another text "I must have been super bloated or something, the dress now fits".... Well lucky me, trying to be careful with my money and now I'm out 2 dress which I have to pay for.
If I can't sell the dresses online I was thinking maybe I can have my pregnant bridesmaid have both dresses combined to make hers or have it taken in for the other bridesmaid that hasn't order the dress??? What is your thought or suggestions?

I've been planning for a wedding last couple of months. Though on Sunday I finally got my engagement ring. My boyfriend took me on a walk on this cloudy day in the nature center. We stopped at this bridge and he was asking me, "do you remember when I first tried to hold your hand"? "I put my hands in your jacket pocket and told you my hands where cold, when you put your hand in my pocket and found out it was lined with fleece" LOL....so he grabbed my hands putting them in his jacket pocket and I felt the ring box. He then went down on his knee and opened the box. My first reaction "What?" and I started laughing. He was really puzzled until he turned the box around and saw he grabbed the wrong box, it has his old high school ring. Needless to say once we got home, he turned on the chimney and Christmas tree lights, when I saw him waiting for me he said "this is the way it should have been" now he had the right box. Poor guy he said he was so embarrassed, but I told him he just made this moment more memorable.
