Destination Weddings

Destination weddings or staycation weddings. The only difference is how close are you to your destination? What is your destination? If a beach wedding is what you want there are so many great beaches in the US that are ready to do your beach wedding such as barefoot weddings.net or Key West Weddings. Beach weddings can be an  economical alternitive to a traditional wedding. 

I did a destination wedding because I wanted to make sure I had a Rockin' Honeymoon, and I did and it was the coolest ever. Also because we are an East Coast / West Coast Couple, I am from MA we live in CA how do you make everyone happy, I think you need to be happy first, let everyone take care of themselves. We were married in a Castle in the Western, Highlands of Scotland. While we were their we found out we are Scottish. It was fantastic. Although you do have to prepare for the weather and the bugs. All turned out great. And we had 3 more weeks for our honeymoon and didn't have to catch a plane. This is a pic we took in front of the castle where we were married. A day I will never forget. What a wonderful vacation.

Destination weddings are cool. Visit ladybead.com we carry anklets, barefoot jewelry and more...

Cool Creative Wire Wrap Artist

While surfing Twitter late at night I came across this beautiful pendant. I had to have it. It was created by Matthew Nix a very talented wire wrapping artist. He will even create a custom pendant for you, or if you prefer he also sells DVD's to teach you how to wire wrap.

Quote from his site 

"Wire wrapping is my main passion when it comes to pendant making. I'm not the best and not the worst. I then got into polymer clay and more recently the art of fused glass. I also do photo transfers on several mediums. I dabble in mixed media applications as well. I like to combine different techniques with different mediums to create something unique.

        It took me two years to go full time. I'm proud of the fact I started with nothing and built a successful business. Besides creating... I teach with my kits, tutorials and dvds. I occasionally offer local classes and have found it very rewarding in several aspects. I also sell at a few craft shows throughout the year. Feel free to check out my work, as my site is a testimony of my desire to create and teach others.

"You have to learn how to crawl before you can walk. You have to learn how to walk before you can run. You have to learn how to run to win the race."
