Tammy's Banquet Dress

HI Dolls
It’s been a long time I’ve posted on my blog things has been crazy. I know I still need to post about my big day (My Wedding) but I’ve just been so busy with new orders and work. But I have some awesome news to share things will be changing on my blog from the Name to the post. Well the reason for the change is I’ve decided to be a full time business woman. I resigned and will be focusing allot on my business. I will be a Salon owner, doing the usual custom made dresses, and Catering for all occasions so expect to see allot of the above mentioned on the blog.
Back to the Project
I made this dress for Tammy last year for a banquet. It’s a cat suite with diamonds on the bust and the bottom has a two layer chiffon skirt.
Hope you enjoy

Abby's Banquet Dress

Hi Dolls
So it’s been a few weeks that I neglected my blog  L …………’s not that bad at least I’ve posted in anyway I’ve been so busy and don’t have any time blogging. So far for this year I didn’t start with a project and never got the time to sit in front of my sewing machine it’s that bad!
So to make me feel a bit better I will post some of last year’s projects. J
This is a banquet dress I made for one of my clients Abby, it’s a stretch satin one arm sequence dress. I made a slit and just above the slit is a mash insert. I also made her partner’s double breast  waist coat. I think it turned out well, I actually had to make another one but in red will be posting the project later.
Enjoy J

Lunch with My Girls #Bridesmaids#Wedding

Hi there
It’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog and now I have a lot of things to post but I'll take it one at a time …
So many things happened!!!! I worked like hell ……lol will be updating all of the projects, all of them were mostly Banquet Prom dresses. I was under pressure most of the time but I somehow manage to complete all of them. Besides all of that I have great news I’m getting married and I’m so exited ….lol. I just had to share this post because I have a lovely group of girls as my bridesmaids.
I decided to take them out for lunch and let them meet each other, what a wonderful time we had! Everything turned out great, some of the girls met each other for the first time, but when they chatted it felt like they knew each other for years.
Let me introduce them to you: we have my best friend (you will know her she’s been in my previous post) Michelle then next to her my other best friend Lee-Anne, next to her my other best friend Leonie, and next to her my sister in-law Sheena, my sister will also be in the wedding but she wasn’t with us that day. I know …. I know I’ve got a lot of best friends ….lol  ja who said you can’t have more than one ??????????????
I’m thankful to have met them cause each of them  are unique and that’s what I love about them…….mwha

Lacoste Cake

Hi Dolls
Let me start by saying …….. Call me Martha Stewarth…
Oh yes I baked that cake !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m so proud of it  (*^,)
This cake was for a 21st birthday party and the birthday boy is Lacoste Crazy…lol
So they decided on a t-shirt cake. Believe me I’ve never made a crocodile that small out of fondant but I got it right first time around…lol
I had fun baking the cake, had some quality time with my eldest daughter she had a blast mixing an liking her fingers most of the time…
When the baking was done she was so tired and went to bed when I did the decorations on the cake , the next morning she was so excited to wake up and see our creation she was so surprised and took most credit for it.
I’m so sorry I didn’t take any pictures of us while we were baking but here’s the end result enjoy!
See you next time
Toodel do

Deadly earthquake in South Africa in Orkney and Klerksdorp – 1 fatality and 21 injured

My thoughts …….Oh my word I can’t die at work in the toilet!!!!!!
So there I was in the toilet and the door starts shivering (oo,) my hart started to beat faster terrified of what’s happening. How grateful I was for my life when it stopped and I was still alive …… Thank God!
But imagine feeling terrified for one minute thinking of your children and the people you love, not realizing there’s people out there in the world going thru worse life treating situations then a one minute earthquake.
How amazing is it that one minute can make you be grateful for so many things in your life. We have to realize how blesses we are and thank God each and every day for allowing us to open our eyes and spending time with the people we love.
I’ve read somewhere “If you think your blesses because of money, Then you don’t know the meaning of Blessings.”
Thank you God for my Blessings!
Hope u save where ever u are
See u next time
