      Only family weddings! You could really boost your income by starting your on business! I love it so much that I'm going to do something similar to plan light bulb in walk in closet. I plain on using a medallion and add crystals around it. Because of health issues I can't use power tools. But I think that I can use a nail and hammer to make holes for tiny jewelry hoop and then hang crystals from there. Wish me luck. I hope it work or I do have an ale for starting holes for wood and drywall. That might be better? I'll try.
