Wedding bells..



Im a huge procrasinator when it comes to actually sitting down and doing things I need to do within a certain time scale, no matter what good intentions I have I always end up being last minute with things. I've recentely started doing an online computer course, I can use a computer but don't have any formal IT qualifications so thought it may be helpful, anyways I literally have to force myself to do it and it's hard work. The internet is just so tempting for a quick check of a blog here or a little peak on ebay there, how kids get any homework doen these days I'll never know! To think we never even had access to computers when I was at school, let alone the world wide web! Do they even actually hand write anything these days? crazy thought eh! I went to look around a big school for May this past week and they were all sat there in class with their own laptops, I couldn't quite believe my eyes!
Anyways, the school was nice, going to see another next week, I can't believe this time next year she'll be at school! I think the whole thing was a little overwhelming for her though she wouldn't say, she's a brave little thing, you really have to coax these things out of her. She like that if she hurts herself to she's all "I'm fine, I'm fine!" until there's no one about and then she'll finally cave in and have a little cry. I love my daughter!

Anyways, along with the course I offered to make my friends wedding invites and they are finally finished! yay! You have no idea how long these have taken, between deciding on themes and colour and that darn glitter which took hours! But now they're finito and I'm so happy! One less thing to think about doing and then feeling guilty about for not doing in the evenings.

I'm loving the beautiful autumn weather and "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...soon the bells will ring..." get excited!!

  1. Your invites are so fab, I love them.
    I made wedding invites a few years ago and you panic over getting them perfect don't you!!! Loved doing it though, although not half as cool as yours.
    I dreaded my daughter going to school. Now she is nearly 8, I can't believe it. We always worry for them but today I took the Prince to a toddler group and on the way back to the car we walked past my daughter's school.
    I could see her in the playground playing happily. I treasured that moment.

  3. I know what you mean about being distracted by the internet. I love writing by hand, and I know many people appreciate a hand written letter instead of a typed one. The cards are beautiful, and so much more nicer having been made by you. You are a sweetheart x

  7. Thank you for the kind comment on my blog! The internet is a blessing and a curse in equal measure - a blessing because there's so much to look at, so much inspriation to be had and so much to learn, but a curse because it sucks up your time!

    Those wedding invites look great!
