Valentines Day is on its way

Since Valentine's Day is coming up the latest video on threadbanger tells how to make a simple corset. So using this video I made one for myself. So I made a few mistakes...like my waist measurement :/ But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.




















Yes I know it's supposed to be laced all the way up, but the bottom is too small and my ribbon isn't long enough :)


So I'm going to let everyone in on my Valentine Day gift for Kevin *shhh* It's ok though because I know he doesn't read this. We are kind of going with a new thing this year... Last year we did the whole extravagant gift giving thing and decided that we are each to hard to shop for so we agreed to spend like five bucks on each other. And here is how I spent mine... I got the idea from this blog. It's an adorable little book made from a deck of cards. After you look at my version you should check out the link above to see where I got my inspiration. Here's how mine turned out...


















Sorry the pics are a little out of focus, it's getting late and I have studying to do. I'll try to get some better ones later. If you can't figure out what they say just let me know and I'll write it out.


Oh and I want to say Congrats to my best friend Danielle who just got engaged! I'm so excited for you! And I'm totally one of the maids of honor (she couldn't decide between me and Steph). I love you Danielle!
