I design and make this dress at the same day two days ago!  Here it is the front and the side,and the back, modelled by Chelsea.DSC_0064Fabrics: Miyuki Satin in blush pink and in almond elle lace. If you want to know how I did it? EASY. At least for me. At night, I draw everything what I want done throughout the day before I go to sleep. then in the morning I put it to work exactly as I plan to do. I have a very good and experienced seamstress working for me and basically we shared passion in sewing and creating beautiful dresses. She been a gift from heaven two weeks ago, now working with me full time. It’s a blessing to have a reliable seamstress working with me side by side   and some heavy load off from my shoulder and the production run smoothly.

th-38

Hello everyone! It’s been a hectic time for me lately to focus on blogging, designing new collections, hiring web designer, hiring a suitable associates for the business, etc. It’s been crazy to run and manage a business by one person without support by any kind nor help by anyone. I’ve been doing this for a long time on my own and it’s time to have a change on how Ellebay function in a different direction.

We just launch our new website that Sarah Smith designed, and I’m loving it. Photos are great by nadiaphotography.

Ellebay now have a team of marketing/social media, a writer/editor/journalism, in house model and sale associate, Chelsea Steffen (generally), 3 interns and a full time seamstress. Everything comes together smoothly.

2015, Ellebay will launch our dresses worldwide, and our E-Magazine will be out its very first issue by February 2015. Stay tune. You’ll going to love it.

Until next post! : ) CHEERS EVERYONE…!

WAKE-UP THE MALL


DSC_0506

The World is the mall. Everyone comes to the mall either to buy or sell. And when the mall closes everyone goes back home. Some leave early, some leave later, but all return home at one time or the other.

Whether or not you are well in life you must go home one day. What  preparations are you making for your return home? In case you are doing well in life, consider this: the bible asks, “What does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mathew 16:26

If you are not doing well in life today, you still need to consider your ultimate return journey home. Why should you lose in this world and lose again in the world to come? Now Jesus said, ” You must be born again to be able to return to heaven….” John 14-1-3,6

WHY WILL YOU NOT GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS NOW AND SETTLE THE ISSUE OF YOUR HOME-GOING ONCE AND FOR ALL? DECIDE NOW, BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS TOMORROW MAY BE TOO LATE…..2 CORINTHIAN 6:2

When the world collide, are you ready to meet your Creator Jesus Christ?

Pray now, call on Jesus to take over your life now. DO SO NOW. God bless you

HOW TO prepare FOR MARRIAGE.

 

COUPLES OFTEN SPEND MORE TIME PREPARING FOR THE WEDDING, WHICH ONLY LASTS A FEW HOURS, THAN FOR THEIR MARRIAGE, WHICH, THEORETICALLY, SHOULD LAST A LIFETIME.

I’m not married, but I surely know many things  about keeping marriage for a lifetime. As the owner and designer of Ellebay Bridal, there are few times bride-to-be’s and groom-to-be’s  came in just to talk to me REGARDING  their doubts and stress preparing for their wedding. I am not just  designing and making dresses for bride-to-bes, nor just selling dresses, but also sit down with them for hours giving insight to those who approach me for advice.

Consider for a moment, Romeo and Juliet, the famous couple who fell passionately in love and vowed eternal commitment . Theirs is a classic-tale of romance and courtship; but would their marriage have been so idyllic? Did these young lovers ever discuss where they would live, money,children, sex, religion, or their in-law’s problem?

We are left to speculate on these questions because the marriage of Romeo and Juliet ends briefly and tragically. Sadly, so do many modern marriages where couples have neglected to discuss such vital issues beforehand.

 “The one problem most common to premarital couples is that their idealistic”, says Dr. David Olson, If there are problems, they don’t see them; if they do, they try to deny their existence, or assume they will go away once they are married.

To combat this distorting idealism and bring important questions to the attention of couples planning to marry, PREPARE.

PREPARE  is administered through counsellor, priest, rabbis, and ministers. Under the counsellor’s direction, couples who take PREPARE must individually complete  a questionnaire to asses  his or her attitudes in eleven areas  such as; communication, sexual relationships, conflict resolution, financial management,realistic expectations, religious orientation, equalitarian roles, family and friends, children and marriage, personal issues, and leisure activities. The counsellor then seek out potential problem areas by reviewing on the questionnaire  where the couple’s answers do not jibe. For example; even if both partners agree that they have a problem with financial management, the counsellor does not dwell on this issue. He knows that the couple recognizes the difficulty and is working to resolve it. In contrast, when one partner believes that their financial management is good, and the other rates as poor, a true problem exists.

Some couples are defensive , finding it difficult to admit their differences. According to Dr. Olson, they will claim that they misread the question or change their mind. All Prepare does is summarize what they’ve said about their relationship. After a while they say, I guess that’s right, I just afraid to admit it. It’s hard to tell your partner that there are things about him or her you don’t like. It’s like opening a can of worms. But once that has been said, they have to talk about it and deal with it.

Idealism, is only one part of a problem that premarital couples face. A common results of overly ideal expectations is that couples simply do not spend enough time day-to-day working to improve their relationship. Simple because they’re busy on their own individual activities. In fact, they often spend more time preparing for the wedding, which only lasts a few hours, than they do for their marriage, which, theoretically, should last for a lifetime. 

PREPARE cannot guarantee to suit all couples, nor predict whether your marriage will be successful, nor it should be used as the sole criteria  in determining whether or nor you should marry.

PREPARE helps YOU think and communicate BEFORE  YOU TAKE MAJOR STEP OF MARRIAGE. With so many couples believe that LOVE alone will keep them together, Being PREPARED FOR MARRIAGE IS WORTH PURSUING.998795_680399848688052_200890680_n

Next issue, I will write about YOUR WEDDING TRAUMA OR TRIUMPH?

Whether you call it premarital tension, wedding jitters, or engagement stress, nuptial phobia__fear of the wedding___can be as much as part of getting married as having a blood test. STAY TUNE!!! Merly Bayona
