You Are Cordially Invited- FDL Deb Ball

We are ready to kick off Project Debutante with the Fashion, Design and Lifestyle Team on Etsy! To debut the new team on Etsy, we will create individual items using the theme of a debutante ball. These balls are fancy, formal and lavish affairs introducing young women into society. For our ball, the “debutante” is our team and the “party” is virtual.

I have created a gorgeous shrug named Look at Me you can see more pics here.

Invitation is open to all, come solo or bring a friend. Check it out here. Come dressed to the nines, and ready to party!!

I was so inspired by this team challenge, and seeing the gorgeous items that were created by my team mates I can see that they were as well. I have been asked to handle administration in the team shop with Beth from Thirdfloor designs~~ a complete honor!!

So I offer you a sneak peak into some of the other guests closets, so you can see how they will be adorned at the ball...

Beth at Third Floor Designs has created this gorgeous wrap, so very beautiful... She is aptly named Geisha in Red and Turquoise, see more of her here. Beth has a lovely shop, she is very talented. Check out her shop here.

Every girl needs some bling for the party and Morgan from Karma11 has created a piece that I love!! It is aptly named The Circle of Love necklace and you can view it here. I also love this wearable piece of art from Nora over at

Daintycrochetbyaly. She has a stunning shop and is so talented. Check out more pics of this stunner here. Also every gal needs a dress for the ball, so Love2sew has created a stunner she named Show Em the Moves and you can see more photos here. If you're the type of gal who prefers something a little more steampunk Stargazer29609 has created the perfect reversible corset for you!! check out more pics of it here. Finally, every gal needs a little sparkle on her ear, and Laurabaille designs has created a lovely set of bling for your lobes. Check out more pics here.

Always and Forever~Happy Anniversary

Today is the day I married my best friend :) Six years ago.. It was the best day of my life.. We had a beautiful wedding that we will never forget.

To my husband~~I love you today more than the day I met you, and just a little bit less than tommorrow, for each day with you is a great adventure, a day to be treasured. Thank you for being my best friend, my love, my rock..

I also wanted to post some pics of the beautiful mendhi I had done before the wedding. I was the luckiest girl...I got to wear 2 dresses at my wedding (1 indian, 1 traditional american) and a gorgeous sari to our rehersal dinner. My mom and I saw the sari in Edison and my mother in-law went back and bought it for me :) ~~Thanks mom!! We miss you and dad so much!!!~~~My mother in law also went to India and had my wedding sari made for me--she is the best mother in law a daughter could ever hope for!! Here is a pic of her giving me my dress the night before the wedding..

Here's some of the mendhi and my mother and I..
