Mothers Veil Turned Luxury Custom Garter

REASON To KEEP Your garter!      It's made from your Mom's Wedding Veil.

This is a Specialty custom garter request!  

I love making garters that are ultra sentimental.  The garter shown below was created using the sheer tulle and faux pearls from brides mom's veil.  Pearls from veil were hand sewn into a decorative cluster to embellish the bows.  

The first image below is the veil BEFORE it was cut and reassembled into parts for a beautiful custom garter.

Mother of the brides veil.  Brides mother sent the veil to me so I could incorporate parts of it into the creation of her daughters garter.  I used the beaded tulle with the lace ruffled and many of her faux pearls were made into a cluster.

Names and Date are embroidered on the satin band.  This garter will be a family heirloom for generations to come!

Precious Hello Kitty garter

Spotlight on the kitty.   Here is one of my custom wedding garters featuring the adorable Hello Kitty blue / pink satin fabric.   My client wanted shades of lavender and purple to be accenting it.  So the ribbons and the personalized lettering was embroidered in lavender/purple.  

You can have a custom garter too.  Go to the Custom Wedding Garters website and search for any theme you want.  Just leave out the word "garter"  it will bring up everything on the site  ;)

Mothers Wedding Dress to Garter Highlight

REASON To KEEP your Garter!  ~ it's made from your mom's wedding dress.

A Custom Garter Order Highlight.  With a couple excerpts from client:

Original inspiration:
lux double ruffle garter with ivory and white and rose colors
Lux double ruffle garter
Jackie's daughters garter was based on the Lux double ruffle garter shown to the left.  It had two layers of lace with some hand-sewn Swarovski Crystals and faux pearls.

Jackie wanted to have a garter based on this concept but using HER wedding dress as much as possible.

Jackie:  "I just shipped my dress material overnight to you, it will be there tomorrow.  I included some organza, lace and beading that was on my dress please use as you see fit.  Some of the embroidery/lace is yellowing because its so old but I would still like to use a little it will mean so much to my daughter.  I love your ideas for the monogram and date on the inside back that sounds perfect. Let's do it.  Thank you soooo much for doing this for me it means so much."

I got to work on her custom wedding garter request and it came out stunning.  Please see the pix below.

Ten Minas Project - thank you

Well today is the day -  we hand in our donations for the Ten Minas Project.  

I can't help but feel somewhat disapointed... but I guess it's because I had such high hopes with  my original goal of raising $1000.   I only have $80 to hand in.   

I'm tempted to feel like a failure.  But I will be grateful that I do have something to return.  I started off with $10 and handing in $80 -  so that's $70 that wasn't there originally.

It shall be interesting to see how much total the church has raised.   


Thank you to all the generous clients who gave of their own money to help the needy and those who are struggling with difficulty in their lives.   God knows what you have done and will surely bless you for it.

FACT - Donations are needed from YOU

One of the facts of life is that, many babies are saved each and every day by wonderful places who have programs to help mothers-to-be who are in need of financial and emotional help.   Without the help these centers offer,  many pregnancies may end in abortion.
  

You can help by donating today!   There are only 4 days left until I must hand in my "Ten Minas Project" money.  So far I am up to $80.00 Which is a far cry from what I had hoped for.   But it is still a lot more than the original $10 that I was given to multiply.

 Each little child you see as your live your days, is a miracle.   YOU are a miracle.   You were formed in your mothers womb by amazing and remarkable ways.   Starting out from just a CELL and some how God knit you together and formed you to be what you are now.  It is truly astonishing!


Please help out by giving to the worthy cause of the Ten Minas Project.   Donations that are collected will be given to two worthy organization.  Half will go to the Springfield Pregnancy Care Center and half will go to the Springfield Rescue Mission.  

If you are planning to place an order BEFORE SEPT 8, 2013 Please do so through the Garter order form where there is a drop down box that will let you donate. All Donations that come in with a garter order will be matched Dollar for Dollar by Victoria Joanne!  So what ever you donate will be DOUBLED !    But if you WILL NOT be placing any order this week -    You can still make a donation of any amount by clicking the button below.   Donations through this blog will not be matched. So what ever you donate will be the amount that goes toward the causes.
Ten Minas Project
You can make a difference!
