you are invited....


why does something simple always take the longest?......this year i was asked to make some invitations for a friends wedding....no problem i thought!...this job has taken me hours and when you look you wonder where & how the time disappeared. Simple card wrapped with vellum & ribbon! however each invite is accompanied with a Wedding guide & an rsvp card & envelope....when you've got 100 to make it can take a while i have learnt!!...fortunately the save the dates went out early in the year so these are just the etiquette side of things!....the feature colour of the wedding is Teal which sounds strange but really works with the whole style of the wedding.....here they are...the reason for me being MIA!

Birthday wishes

Today would have been my nan's 87th birthday....there isn't a day that I don't think of her and still miss her desperately, but time does heal and having gramps to look after helps.It's always difficult to gauge how he's going to be on days like today but fortunately he was in good spirits I think the weather helped ...I was able to finish early today to get to the cemetery, and fortunately the weather was a beautiful autumnal day bright & sunny.This rose was bought for nan & gramps on their 50th wedding anniversary and has bloomed/budded consistently since she left us.Yellow roses were one of her favourites. Thinking of you nan with much love. Tx

the holiday's are coming!....




sorry been a bit busy!....have done some crafting but can't post it yet as it's for the christmas cupcake swap... have made some scrummy new recipes and with 40 cards to make it's been a bit mad!...the cupcake flavours that i've made are; Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes, Christmas Tree Cupcakes, Chocolate Chestnut Cupcakes, Red Velvet Holiday Cupcakes. mmmmm yum yum....on another note work has been mental, juggling lots of balls at the moment and dropping lots!....read a fantastic book last week as my train read, it was scrapbooking in a book!...a real emotional rollercoaster, some nice city gent gave me his handkerchief on the train as i was 'emotional' reading on my way to work!!....Things I want my Daughters to Know. I loved it.....(you will need tissues!)
I had a lovely day at karen's on Sunday we bimbled about at her's and then popped to John lewis's at Bluewater with the boys who were very well behaved. I'm sure that I have lots more to tell you but having a 'senior moment'! and keep forgetting!.....I have started a new blog, i was inspired by a blog that I follow of NY, which details a snap of NY each day. i can't commit to every day but have tried to post some photo's of my ramblings within London. Here it is.... i may pop a NY photo in every now & then as I have a few! and have got withdrawal symptoms that I'm not going this year!
