I finished my maracas! I used Mishka's designs as inspiration and really wouldn't have even attempted them if I wasn't on this forum. So they are those tiny ones from OTC, but I love mini-things and think they turned out pretty cute. I did them early so I wasn't up the night before I left painting the little suckers...ahem... cougs... thanks for the advice wink.gif

 

They are going to go on the seats at the ceremony. Enjoy the pics!

Thanks KittenHeart :) I absolutely love your inspiration board! That e-pic is still one of my faves that I have seen.

 

I just tried to find the ones I bought on OTC, but they don't have them anymore sad.gif Essentially I bought the ones in the link below, but they were not painted at all.

Autumn - I love them! I just finished mine too. We did the same technique with the holes in a piece of wood, it worked great! I freaked out because I thought I needed more and OTC isn't selling them anymore like you said. Congrats I love how you did the initials - I am not that ambitious! Mine are just solid colors- how did you do the tags are they stickers?

They look great, Autumn. Good job. I hope you post all of your DYI stuff before you head off to the wedding. BTW, my daughter got married in PV and we all stayed at Dreams. Had a blast.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
