DIY: The maid's job

30th March 2012







It’s the busiest season this year for wedding fanatics my sister is one of them, she’s getting hitched this summer and I have a job to do (yeah, ho hum I’m a Maid of Honour).  My job is to give her cascade tulle veil an omph, the veil has floral embroidery on the border and needs some pearl beads on each flower.  While I’m at it, my sister is busy Pinteresting for more wedding inspirations (follow her on Pinterest if you’re curious), the pressure is on.
