How to make your own Jordan Almond Flower Favors





1. Fold the almond holder by pinching wire in the middle of the leaf over jordan almond. Make five. Do not over work the almond holder. They are delicate and can tear. Fold once toward bottom and middle of holder.



2. Group together 5 stamens and fold in half. With floral tape, wrap together about half way up so stamens are loose at top. Again with floral tape, tape stamen bunch to one almond holder. Bend almond holder down to the side so that stamen bunch will be higher than holder.


3. Place the remaining 4 almond holders around the leaf with the stamens, making sure all the petals are facing the same direction. Twist wire stems together and wrap with floral tape at the base of the almond holders.


4. Place two rose leaves at base on opposite sides of flower. Twist wire stems together with the almond holder stems. Wrap with floral tape from base of flower down to end of wire and back up again.


5. Cut ribbon 12-15" long, and tie around stem in a bow. If adding a favor tag, slip card onto stem before tying ribbon.

5 Tips for Top Notch Wedding Pictures

Once a wedding date has been set, one of the first tasks of the future married couple is to line up a photographer to take what they hope will be priceless and cherished pictures - ones that you and others will look at for many years.

If the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" holds any truth, your wedding pictures will be especially important to you. Many couples mistakenly think of wedding pictures as the staged pictures of the bride, groom and the wedding party. Start thinking of your total set of wedding pictures as a memoribilia that tells a story of a bride and groom's special day - in preparation for, during and the final moments before the honeymoon.

Because your wedding will be in front of possibly hundreds of your closest family and friends, choosing a wedding photographer to visually document your special day should be taken very seriously. Forget about having your cousin's best friend who "takes great pictures". Your day must be put into the hands of a professional, perferably the best you can find for your budget.
Here are some questions and factors to consider before making the commitment to hiring the services of a wedding photographer.

1. What will the style of your wedding be? Will it be formal, informal, or semi-formal? The answer to this simple question will play a key role in hiring the best photographer. For example, if your wedding will be in a formal setting, hire a wedding photographer that is traditional in their photographic style. Traditional photographers tend to notice and consider details when it comes to photography, angles of shots they take, balance, etc.

2. Photographers can vary greatly in price. That is why it is important to set a budget and adhere to it as closely as you can. Often you can apply the saying "you get what you pay for" but not always. Expensive photographers generally are high in quality but you may be able to find one that is just starting out with his/her business. In this case they may take terrific pictures and their prices are still in line with what you can afford.

3. Before signing a contract with a wedding photographer, be sure you always read the fine print of the contract so you know the services that you will be getting. Never leave it to chance and assume a photographer is going to perform his/her photographic duties the way you think they will. If you have extra requests or needs, be sure they are written in the contract. Once your day goes by it is too late to quibble over what should have been photographed. Better to have no surprises and that means a solid contract agreed upon by both parties.

4. Choose a photographer that is open to what you as a couple would like as far as your photographer's duties. Some wedding photographers have been doing weddings a long time and can get somewhat immune to the wishes of the couple, the wedding party and guests. Select a photographer that is easy going and can take a little direction if needed. On the other hand, don't try to tell the wedding photographer how to do his/her job. A happy medium is desireable.

5. Finally, (and this is an important one) be sure to ask to see a complete portfolio of the wedding photographers work. Be certain that is the style you would like. Sometimes photographers will "farm out" weddings and send another photographer that acts as a subcontractor for the photo studio. Be sure you ask exactly who will be the photographer on site that day and ask to see their portfolios as well. Remember, the best wedding photos are the ones where there are no surprises on the part of the bride and groom.

Proper thought and research when choosing your wedding photographer will result in some of the most memorable pictures of your lifetime. Good luck!

October is Breast Cancer Awarenes Month - Know your Boobs!

Warning: For the sake of education this video does contain top frontal nudity. Sorry if this affends you but I think it is very important, as early detection is the best protection against breast cancer.

We show how to conduct a breast self-examination to protect yourself.





How To Become Breast Self Aware


You Will Need
1 mirror



Step 1:
Examine yourself in the mirror
Begin by looking at your breasts in the mirror with your arms by your side or on your hips and check that they are their usual shape, size and condition. Look for inversion of the nipple, irregular discharge or a rash.


Step 2:
Raise your arms
Now, raise your arms and look again for any changes, particularly any signs of puckering, dimpling or redness.


Step 3:
Feel your breasts
Raise one arm in the air or place it behind your head. Use the pads of your three middle fingers of the other hand keeping the fingers flat and together. Using a firm, smooth touch, feel your entire breast including the nipple and armpit (be particularly aware of swellings in this area). The aim is to cover the whole breast from top to bottom, side to side including the underarm area.


Step 4:
Use the circular method
Using a circular motion, start from the nipple and move out around the breast being aware of lumps or other irregularities


Step 5:
Contact your doctor
The vast majority of lumps are not cancerous. It could simply be a cyst, or just natural lumpiness. If you have any doubts get it checked out by your doctor as soon as possible.

Cute idea for a Christian Favor!


Pair our "Love Rocks" Engraved and Polished Stone favor, with the cute little prayer rock poem below and you have a wonderful Christian theme favor. Just print this poem on some paper, roll it up and slip it right into the organza bag and you have a great Christian favor for your event.


PRAYER ROCK
(Author Unknown)

I'm your little prayer rock
and this is what I'll do.
Just put me on your pillow
'til the day is through.


Then turn back the covers
and climb into your bed,
and, whack! your little prayer rock
will bump you on the head.


Then you will remember
as the day is through,
to kneel and say your prayers
as you intended to.


Then when you are finished
dump me on the floor.
I'll stay there through the nighttime
to give you help once more.


When you get up next morning,
clunk! I stub your toe,
so that you will remember
your prayers before you go.


Put me back upon your pillow
when your bed is made,
and your clever little prayer rock
will continue in your aid.


Because your Heavenly Father
cares and loves you so,
He wants you to remember
to talk to Him, you know.
