Hello everyone, firstly sorry i've been completely pants at posting lately. Epic workload combined with the school holidays is making things tricky! Anyway lots to update soon but firstly here is a cute little bouquet i made recently...
So it's the busy season... plus Fletcher has gone and got Chickenpox... he's being a little trooper about it but it turns out stopping a 5 yr old from scratching is more than a full time job! Anyhoo while i have a rare minute i'm popping up this pic of a lovely little 'Handmade in Kent' feature in this months Your Kent Wedding magazine. Thanks @CountyWeddingMagazines for another great feature.
Its a Bank Holiday weekend people! Who's excited? Before we all head off to enjoy ourselves here is a teeny roundup of a few bits i've made recently and not had chance to share. Take a look then go have a great time!
OK folks I'm heading off to The Unconventional Wedding Festival very soon. Lots of amazing suppliers involved and (along with other things) you'll be able to see my brand new Star Wars bouquet - I didn't quite manage to finish it in time for May 4th but I completely love it now it is done. What do you think?
Its been all about the buttonholes here lately... don't worry though three new bouquet designs coming very soon. In the meantime though feast your eyes on this Star Wars inspired buttonhole that has Chewie now heading across the pond to his new home.
So it's been quite the week already here, featured over on Rock n Roll Bride then yesterday i got a call from a magazine saying a wedding i was involved in last year is being featured in the next issue which is also super exciting! Watch this space!
