Tulle Poof/Pom Pom Tutorial

 For Medium Poofs, I measured them to be 10x10 squares. I cut 10" strips first.
 Then I took my strips and folded them so I had 10" squares and then cut the folded edges. Way faster and easier than cutting them one by one.
 Stack tulle together. For the medium poofs I used 20 pieces per poof. For smaller poofs you add less, larger you add more. Same goes for if you want your poof really dense and full.
 Pinch tulle in the middle.
 Tie off the middle with anything, floss, thread, yarn, or ribbon. Here I used thread. I tied it in a knot then tied it into a bow and double knotted it. This way when I go to add my ribbon to hang there is already a loop for me to thread ribbon through to hang.
 Gather the edges, one side at a time.
 Trim the edge so it is nice and flat to make an even looking poof ball. You can cut the edges into points as well to create a flower petal design.
 Then your patience comes! Start with one piece of tulle in each hand. Pull them in opposite directions. Repeat this method over and over until you have pulled all pieces. Make sure that after you pull two pieces and you grab another two, pull the next in the opposite direction as the ones you just did. If your pulling two pieces, call them 1 and 2 and your moving onto pieces 3 and 4, make sure piece 2 and 3 are going opposite directions.
 Add your ribbon, hang and fluff!
 Very important!!!
Look out for any tulle monsters that love to mess with the tulle! Very cute these monsters are but they can delay your project. LOL!

Post your poofs and share how they were~

More Fabric Letters!

Baby Mehgan!
Bare letters:
 Fabric choices:
 With the polka dot one, the white was still pretty sheer, this was a PAIN in the but to have to add a double layer and make sure the polka dots matched up. But with patience and my need for perfection it turned out beautifully!
 Even though the E looks to be plain white it has alittle extra matte finish, I love this on the solid color fabrics, adds alittle depth. (hard to see from a picture)

Pregnancy After Tubal...

Gentleman BEWARE!!! MAJOR girly, womanly area conversation up ahead!!! TMI!! Take the detour!
{Always LOVE the thin pink paper dresses}
I went into the OBGYN's yesterday for my mystery female problem. (If you need some catching up refer to my Google Search Scared post). This office came HIGHLY recommended and as I pulled up I was very impressed with the nice new building that stood before me! Very new and architecturally pleasing to the eye!

Though I must tell you, when you walk through Suite 200's door you are magically transported into ........
(turn the horror music on) 
 {Everything was gold!!.....the cheesy traditional 90's gold}
{Gold Framed OLD century photo, overly worn (BUT COZY) leather furniture, and many dusty quilts}
{color theme inspiration: gold, gold, gold and more gold, teal and "mauve-a-licious"}

It was just such an odd match from outside to inside.....I'll just be nice and say not MY taste buuut I won't judge...unless my appt is bad. BAhhahaha!
After discussing my issue I am asked to disrobe (difficult when you stupidly wore a dress) and give a urine sample. I do as I'm told and as I begin to go potty I realize I'm not going in the cup. WTF Bree! I did this once before when I was massive pregnant and the nurses chalked it up to being rather funny and blaming it on my preggo brain. I doubt they will think it cute THIS time. After pushing on my bladder, jumping up and down and running the water I was able to produce a small amount. An embarrassingly small amount!
If you can't figure out why yet, (most likely) they wanted a pee sample to check if I'm pregnant...Uhhhh YA! UHHHH I f*%#ing hope not! Ekk!!! I have 3 beautiful children and love them dearly but want NO MORE! LOL! That's why I got "fixed"! 
So what's the risk of pregnancy after tubals??
Tubal Ligation and Tubal Implants are NOT 100% effective at preventing pregnancy.

  • There is a slight risk of becoming pregnant after tubal ligation. This happens to about 5 out of 1,000 women after 1 year. After a total of 5 years following tubal ligation, about 13 out of 1,000 women will have become pregnant.
Pregnancy may occur if:

  • The tubes grow back together or a new passage forms (recanalization) that allows an egg to be fertilized by sperm. Your doctor can discuss which method of ligation is more effective preventing tubes from growing back together.
  • The surgery was not done correctly.
  • You were pregnant at the time of surgery.
So my rates of being knocked up and that being the cause of all my issues....5 out of 1,000. I DON'T like those odds! For me when I got "fixed" I was thinking/hoping the odds were like...NEVER!

My appt comes toward the end and (I knew I wasn't, LOL) but NOT PREGNANT! But then I am informed of what comes next. Theres a few things Dr can't really explains he finds and "your going to need to take some extra hormones, blood work, and in 2 weeks get a specialized ultrasound for a better look." (hope my insurance covers THAT one, YIKES) Oh YES, and you can't forget the pamphlet on "Abnormal Uterine Bleeding" fun, fun! LOL! There must be a pamphlet for EVERYTHING I swear! At least he didn't just give me that and say read this and we'll just see how next month goes. I left with no answers but a plan and I feel he's taking my concerns seriously. So ya, your office decor is awful but your a great Dr so far! LOL. Onto the hormones..."SUPER"!

Watch OUT Bree's on EXTRA hormones for a week~

P.S. This post was for all of those people who thought I was pregnant even though I reassured everyone I wasn't over and over! Bahahahahahaaaa! Sorry but i thought it was hilarious!! Bree so funny!!!
