So I haven’t posted a blog in FOREVER!!! But I totally wasn’t allowing myself to do anything that didn’t pertain to creating something for the wedding lol. But anyway….we are married! Yesterday was the big day and it was so so so amazing. The weather cooperated. It even cooled down right before the wedding and there was a cool breeze. It was nice and sunny and there was a rainstorm in the morning so everything seemed really lush. Couldn’t have asked for a better day 🙂

So now that the big day is over, I’m going to just start posting random blogs about things from the wedding. So much of the wedding was DIY that I feel like we should share it with the world 🙂 So stay tuned!

I’m so thankful for everyone that came out to celebrate with us!!!!

Mrs. Ringe ❤

319 Days to Go – Using Etsy for a Good Cause July 12, 2011

Those of you that know me probably know that I’ve been making and selling jewelry for the last few years through a site called Etsy. I’ve had a decent amount of success, but I almost always use my profits to buy more supplies (except for when I bought my dog, and at Christmas when all sales go toward gifts). Well I’ve decided that I want to leave every bit of the money I make in my account until the day I buy my wedding dress :). I’ve always considered my Etsy profits as ‘fun money’, and I think this will be an exciting and guilt-free way to try and raise as much money I can to buy a spectacular wedding dress! In the last couple of weeks I’ve already been able to set aside about $40, and things should start picking up as the holidays approach.

So I want to shamelessly encourage anyone that reads my blog to check out my jewelry sites (and photography prints), please share with people that you think might enjoy them as well! I want my wedding dress to be at least one thing that I don’t have to buy on a credit card haha, and I think this “modern-day bakesale” is just the ticket

I can’t seem to get links to work on this site, but here they are. You can also go to my Blogroll on the right side of this page and click on the links there:
