I love Pinterest. I don't know how I would have gotten through planning this wedding and being happy with the end result of what I had created without it. I have (finally) decided how I want all of our stationery to look, and I am so happy and relieved! I thought I would share my favourite calligraphy inspiration that I have found on Pinterest these past few weeks :) 

Do you use Pinterest? What's your favourite thing about it? I hope you are all having a good start to the week :)

Weekend Wall Art

My fiance has been working on both Saturday and Sunday for the past few weeks, so this weekend just gone I decided to make a few things to spice up our (very bare) walls. I have seen lots of inspiration for 'string art' recently, and thought I would give it a go. I was quite happy with the results. As for the key holders, Dave is always losing his keys, so I thought this would be a cute way to make sure he doesn't lose them from now on!

(Sorry about the picture quality, we seem to have lost our camera in the move)

What do you have on your walls at the moment?

January Wishlist

I'm a little late, but I thought I would share my January wishlist with you! January has been quite a busy month for me as I've gone back to work. It's nice to have some money in savings again :)

I have never really written down any new years resolutions or goals before. This year I thought it might as well be a good time to start! 

My goals for 2013:

- Be a calm bride. 
  This goal is really important to me. I am basically planning most of our wedding myself (by choice) as well as designing all stationery and making our wedding cake. I am thoroughly enjoying it, but I know how easy it would be to make myself stress. Although, at the end of the day, I will be married to my love, so that's all that matters :)

- Take more photos (and display them.)
   I would really like to try and take photos more often and hang them in our room. Our walls are very blank at the moment!

- Blog more often.
  My aim is to try and blog a few times a week, and work on more DIY and wedding posts.

- Fill a sketch book.
  I believe that this will help me develop my handwriting and drawing to a level that I am happy with. I'll have to see how it goes though!

- Organise more date nights.
   Because I took two months off work, we haven't been able to have date nights and outings as much as we used to. Now that I'm working again, I'm looking forward to it greatly. Hopefully we will be able to organise a night to do something together once a week.

What are your goals for the year?

Happy New Year + Desk View

Happy new year :) I hope everyone has had a safe holiday so far.
Just before the new year we moved into my fiance's old room at his parents house.
This was mainly to be able to save as much money for our wedding as possible (which seems a whole lot closer now that it is 'this year' instead of 'next year'!)
It gave me a good excuse to rearrange my 'desk' all ready for a new start to the year.

I thought I would share a couple of quick photos of my new set up. Excuse the quality of the photos, I took them on my phone and could have possibly had better light.

Here is a close up of my little garland I made to go above my pinboard.

How did you celebrate your new years? Have you made any resolutions? I am hoping to share mine with you in the next couple of days :)
