Wow! it has been a loooooooong time since I wrote anything here. I have been so busy with Assistance League Yule Boutique and Operation School Bell. With that is over it is time to start getting ready for the Bridal Show next month. 

I entered Ragfinery's  "Downtown Upcycle Throwdown", the rules were that you had to spend $10.00 at Ragfinery (salvaged old clothes and fabrics) and $10.00 at Lydia Place's thrift shop and change your purchases into something brand new. I chose a man's neck tie, a little round box and a wedding dress.  Long story short...........I won first place in wearable's, I made three hats with matching handbags.

How to put in a hair comb

Women have been wearing hair combs for ages, however, I think many of us have never learned how to properly put in a comb so that it stays in place. Here is a step by step lesson on how to put in a comb so that it stays.

First, you need to put the comb in upside down and backwards, then flip it so that the teeth are pointing down toward your face.

Now push it down into place.

Bridal Expo 2015, Bellingham, WA

Whew! what a long, exciting day.  My friend Eileen helped me set up, work and breakdown my booth at the Lakeway Inn 2015 Bridal Expo yesterday. My booth created a lot of interest, since I am the only milliner in the area who can do custom work. We saw a lot of lovely brides to be, their friends, bridal parties and mothers of the bride. My entirely new designs were well received by everyone who stopped by and hope to see many  brides and mothers of the bride this year.  I have to admit, I really love designing custom fascinators for the mothers because I can use the new shapes made from my newest hat blocks from Guy Morse Brown in England.
