Today, as her Facebook status, my friend posted this question: "Should Facebook be a blog of your life? Shouldn't it be of what is your true feelings. What your day is like? Not a bunch of fake smiles, when at the time your heart is breaking?" I think if those are the things you write about on Facebook, it is a blog of your life. If you want it to be your journal, make it your journal. There is no "right or wrong". Some complain if you put too much "out there" for others to read. Some complain if you don't put enough. We all have the option to read, hide or ignore the post's of others on Facebook. I actually like to read about what is going on in other people's lives. If you want to express your sadness, do it. If you want to express your happiness, do it. If you want to express jealousy, do it. If you want to express your anger, do it. If you want to lie about something, do it. If you want to poke fun about someone or something, do it. If you want to gossip, do it. If you wan to post "in your face" stuff to hurt someone, do it. If you're having a crappy day (or life) but want everyone to think your life is perfect, GO FOR IT.. knock yourself out... make it a good story. The thing is... YOU are in control of your Facebook page and what you choose to post on it. If you want people to know how you're truly feeling, then post it. Don't hold back because "someone" might not like what you have to say. Screw 'em! If they don't like what you have to say, they don't have to read it. Don't let Facebook define your life... it's not a script. It shouldn't be the only lifeline we have with others, either. Bottom line... your Facebook page is yours... Make it what you want.
I've admired Brooch Bouquets for awhile and was excited and honored when Bride, Ashley, asked me to make hers. She collected many brooches, pendants and earrings from family and friends and she purchased a few. I purchased a few for her, as well. We ended up with approximately 70 total in her bouquet which weighed close to 3 pounds ! Ashley had a couple of special touches in her bouquet. A small photo of her deceased mom and a ring that had also belonged to her. We added the initials of Ashley and her groom, Jered, as well as all of the items given to her from everyone. I waited until the day of her wedding to present it to her. It turned out exactly as she wanted.
