My DIY Dino Wedding: Wedding Invitations
- Published on Monday, 13 May 2013
Wedding invitations are expensive. From the absolute beginning, Joe and I knew we wanted to make our own. We had seen lots of designs we loved, in magazines, on forums and at wedding shows, but as usual, it turns out we have expensive taste. We wanted pocketfold invitations which on average were a fiver each, which would put our...
You’ve Got Mail: Saying Thank You!
- Published on Saturday, 11 May 2013
Weddings really bring out the best in people, I think.
One thing we found after ours was how incredibly generous and thoughtful all of our family and friends are. Of course, we were always going to write Thank You cards after the day had been and gone. Manners don’t cost a thing after all, as my mum says! (Although stamps don’t come c...
Future Kitchen Designs – It’s Finally Happening!
- Published on Thursday, 09 May 2013
As mentioned before, 2013 is going to be the year we get a kitchen. No, really, it is!
We’ve checked it out with the bank and with a couple of builders and we’re going to take the plunge and extend at the back of the house.
We currently have an outhouse (or ‘lean-to’ – I’m not entirely sure of the difference) but leg...
Wishlist Wednesday: Quirky Card Stash
- Published on Wednesday, 08 May 2013
I don’t actually regret any decisions about our wedding day. It was perfect for us. We had an incredible time and I think after a lot of research, and getting a little bit crafty, we got a fair few bargains. Always a winner!
However, I love love love these quirky cards from a store on Etsy called Slice of Pie Designs and do...
Little House, Big Heart
- Published on Friday, 03 May 2013
Happy Friday everyone! It’s the weekend, yippee!
No doubt, Joe and I will be cracking on with some DIY around the house since we have a Bank Holiday this Monday, which I’m sure I’ll blog about soon enough!
In the meantime, I’ve been featured on Little House, Big Heart today!
Little House, Big Heart is one of those...
#CloughWedding: Why I hashtagged my special day
- Published on Thursday, 02 May 2013
Let’s face it.
Whether you like it or not, some of your guests are going to put pictures of your wedding on Facebook -or whatever social network they’re buzzing over at the time.
Unless you have a strict no-phones policy, I can’t see how you’d avoid it. Luckily, I have no problems whatsoever with people uploading images of...
Our wedding: A Groom’s Point Of View
- Published on Sunday, 28 April 2013
This is a blog post written, not my be, but from the one I always talk about on here – Joe!
He wanted to have his say on the wedding day and share with you his favourite bits about the day, with a few tips for other grooms. It’s longer than my normal posts, but I hope you enjoy this really sweet and heartfelt post from my new h...
Bathroom, meet Cabinet.
- Published on Friday, 19 April 2013
Bathroom, I’d like to introduce you to someone very special: your brand new cabinet. I know you’ve waited a long time for this to join your little family, but it’s finally here!
Wait a minute. What am I doing? Writing a letter to our bathroom? Back to reality I think.
One of our wedding presents, out of those which are...
Wife mission #1: Change my name
- Published on Thursday, 18 April 2013
One of the first things I did upon getting married was start the long and I’m told, quite stressful, task of changing my name.
This is an important task for me though. If I’m going to take the plunge and change my name, by gum I want to do it right!
(Although I must admit, the temptation to change it to something absolutely...
Wishlist Wednesday – There’s a bum on the wall…
- Published on Wednesday, 17 April 2013
Generally, I read a lot of blogs to get ideas and inspiration for decorating the house. I haven’t actually implemented many of them yet, but that’s another story…
And I love finding ways of reusing stuff around the home.
I have so many items lying around that I don’t use or need, but keep around simply because I...
