My old AE friend Bonnie asked me to make her bridal veil for her a while ago and I was a little antsy about saying yes. That is a lot of pressure to put on myself. Every girl dreams of her wedding day and wants every detail to be perfect. I thought on it for a few days and decided that for personal growth and improvement, we all need to be pushed out of our comfort zone and challenged a bit, so I said yes. The wedding isn't until January so I had plenty of time... this was back in the end of October. Well November came and almost went so I decided that instead of continuing to stress about it, I would just do it and get it over with and she would have it in more than plenty of time. So last week I put the pedal to the metal and made my first bridal veil!!!! I knew I was capable of it but it was intimidating to me and I am a bit of a perfectionist and can be a little hard on myself. But the end result was great! I felt confident with the end product and was just waiting on her reaction. I went to give it to her and.... she was ECSTATIC!!! She loved it and put it on right away- which made it that much more rewarding. I now know that I am capable of doing this type of head piece and that I can gain more bridal customers at the shoppe if that is a direction I want to head in the future. I must admit, I was so glad to have it over with but I realized that it wasn't as hard as I thought and that I need to stop doubting my abilities. So YAY me... I am so humble huh?
Don't mind my modelling, I had to get a picture of my creation :)
