No matter what words you use, no matter what pictures you can show, those of us blessed enough to have experienced it, know that it is indescribable.
All i know, is that i found that someone that i wanted to spend the rest of my life with, no questions, no doubts, it was her, for the rest of our lives.
Me and my (now) Fiance, both enjoy things that little bit different in life, so i knew, that when proposing, it had to be something different, but not cheesy.
Hannah is a creative person just like me, the greatest thing about this, is that i have someone who understands my creativity, and is proud of what i create. I knew that something 'handmade' coupled with a place that has been 'Godmade' would make for Hannahs (almost) perfect moment.
So, i will attempt to take your through how i made my proposal that little bit different, and more importantly, how i proposed with a 'time machine'
Step 1: Finding that perfect part.
As with all my projects i always like to push the use of scrap objects, i occasionally buy a few new items, but alot of the materials are 'scavenged'.
Then, i happened upon an old hand mixer. I new there would be a hefty motor in there, and i knew it would make for a great part in one of my weapons.
Then, i looked closer, and saw the outer metal enclosure of the motor, and i knew it was perfect.
Thus, the fun of getting it apart began, this was one well constructed mixer, the screws were tight, so tight, that no screwdriver created by man could undo what had been done,
So, i grabbed my trusty dremal-esque rotary tool, a 'parkside' branded no name from my local Lidl.
So, step 1 is, destroy the screws.
