my garters were just delivered, and they are awesome! think it's the first time I've been truly happy with ebay. I can't take pics for you girls to see as fh is home, but if anyone wants to see what they look like, the seller is cheetah827, or bridal crafts. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360269207561&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT that's my garter anyway. so happy with it :mrgreen:

lol fh saw the screen when I was paying for it, but luckily only saw the 'parramatta eels' part. and he's already seen the white and blue garter I bought months ago, so he still doesn't know that that's what it is...

I'm the same turbo, I can't keep a secret to save my life, but so far so good with this one :D

I am currently DIYing my wishing well, fingers crossed I don't screw it up.


I'm making mine too. Where did you get your ideas from? I haven't started yet so if you feel inclined to share the finished product I'd love to see it!

Hahahah!! I'm glad he liked it!! As long as you ask for a reasonable price, you'll sell them for sure! (So many memories of girls selling their dresses for a bargain price of $12,000! 8O )

I am making a mini suitcase as we asked for money for our honeymoon. I got the supplies from spotlight and it is meant to end up like this.

However after hacking away at the little wood suitcases last night I'm not sure it will! And I don't think it will fit more than about 10 envelopes in it... :?
