Hitting the Slopes – On Paper

Excited to be able to share this table plan now – it’s the most complex I’ve ever done and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Especially considering I had never even seen a piste map before Diana sent her ideas over to me! It was a fairly imposing A1 size so quite the talking point. So if you’re getting married and would like a table plan (or anything else actually) that has your name written all over it, get in touch. Fully bespoke illustrated table plans rooted in your wildest dreams start from £100.  

Things I Learned From…

My Granny. If you follow me on instagram you may have seen that today is my lovely Grannies 90th birthday. So in honour of the occasion, here are 5 things she has taught me. Life is for enjoying, savouring + laughing. My Granny has spent her life filling everyone around her with laughter. She is kooky, uninhibited and mischievous. Help people, be loving to those around you – even when you’re tired, even when they don’t expect you to + even when they might not deserve it. The love you give out is relative to the love you get back. I …

What Are You Hiding?

So, what’s yours then? Do you ever get the chance (or have the desire) to show it off? I’m not sure it constitutes a talent but I can play the cello, which is not something that comes up very often in day to day life as you can imagine. Aside from that… I don’t know, I can run a mean training session. Maybe that’s the one I should whip out more often.

Go Outside – Enjoy the Great Outdoors

We have become prolific den builders recently, we are basically all like Bear Grylls.  Everybody loves people watching don’t they? Take yours outside and while away an hour doing nothing much at all. Forget about the real world for a little while and take in some fresh air.  Now I am a grown up, this is much more terrifying but still incredibly satisfying.I think it’s actually muddy everywhere at the moment, pop on some wellington boots and embrace it.

Wishes

Well after yesterdays offensive vegetable post this seems like a sentimental antidote. I actually found it floating around Facebook with some farfetched and emotive story attached to it but haven’t been able to pin point who actually wrote it. Whilst I have many, many wishes they all feel a little frivolous and self-indulgent so this kind of struck a chord with me. Happy wishing.  

Laugh a Lot

So, apparently jokes are way beyond my capability, along with drawing pterodactyls (they are WEIRD looking!) But I’ve tried, and that’s the important thing, right?

A New Year, A New [About] You?!

  So recently the incredible Hannah Millard and I worked on her ‘About Me’ page - it’s been such a blast to work on and Hannah told me the other day that all of her new enquiries at the moment have mentioned it when they got in touch. Rock n Roll Bride has written about the importance of a good about page, and seven easy tips to write a smashing one. So whilst we’re all immersing ourselves into a fresh and sparkly new year, why not consider giving yours a little refresh? Get in touch if you’d like to discuss custom …

Making the Most of Summertime – 10 Things

I’m not a sun worshipper. I appreciate not having to wear a cardigan but I wilt instantly in a heatwave. That said, there is something magical about summertime and every year I have grand ideas of spending every last moment living it up on wild adventures. Obviously, real life happens, with its financial constraints, work and all the other hum drum things that I use as excuses for bumming around half the time. So here are my 10 things to do to make the most of what’s left of Summertime this year. I have well and truly got the camping …

The Anticipation

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about my goals and hopes for the future. What’s the MOST exciting feeling you can summon up from memory? Without a doubt, (don’t worry, this post is not about babies) every time I hear the happy news that someone has fallen pregnant with their …

Thanks Without End…

So I don’t know if you’ve had a little browse in my shop recently but there are some new things I’m rather pleased with. Saying thank you doesn’t need to be dull now with these reasonably cute ‘Thanks Without End’ cards featuring a rather handsome little snake. But if you’re a bit Indiana Jones and snakes aren’t your fave, I can cater for you too. I know, it’s a real niche but I’m well prepared. All thank you cards come as single cards and also in sets of 6, perfect for after birthdays, weddings, new babies, anytime that you’ve been really …
