Cup is today's word, and here is a cup from my kitchen :)

Okay, I cheated a bit, or a lot! This photo was taken last year, and I'm fairly sure it has been on my blog before because I just love it! It's not strictly a fly, nor is it in flight, but I always think it looks like it's about to take off!

I haven't participated in HerSpace MySpace for what feels like ages, but I'm back into it today and I had fun with the prompt - balance. My friend gave me this wine bottle holder years ago, and it was my first thought when I saw today's word.

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. We had a wonderful time seeing all the family, and it was my sister's 21st birthday too so we had double celebrations!

Ooh I do love a bit of bling, and today I have two pieces of bling to share!
First up, a birthday card that I made for my sister's birthday on Sunday - I have absolutely hundreds of the little gems left over from the wedding invitations - they are very fiddly but they are so sparkly!

Secondly, my wedding ring - it had to be elegant, it had to be beautiful & pretty, and it had to sparkle. I fell in love with this one when I tried it one, I can't wait to wear it 'legally'. Naturally, I've tried it one a few times, just to check it still fits of course.

Busy times!

I'm still so busy I'm not really sure what is going on!

The wedding seems to be taking over, but it is fun so I don't mind. I had my first hair trial - just a rough put up to see if what I was thinking would work and it was great! I've also been in touch with a make-up lady to arrange that for the day.
Last week I went with Em and Mum to Bluewater to find Mum's outfit - we got her dress, jacket and fascinator so it was certainly a worthwhile trip.
We spent an hour and a half with the venue manager last week talking about details, and feel much happier about how the day will run. I have total confidence in them - they've done this so many times before!
We've started to recieve our RSVPs - most people so far can come which is great, I just hope we don't have too much chasing up to do in May when the RSVP date gets here - I've heard all sorts of stories about people not bothering to RSVP!
We went into town on Saturday and I came back with my ring! It's so beautiful, and sits wonderfully next to my enagagement ring.

I found a couple of old photo albums the other day, so I've spent a few hours scanning in the photos - there are some great ones from when I was little - this is one of my favourites - me trampolining at the age of 3. This was in the local paper!

We've spent the last few weeks finalising the wedding invitations, and today they are finished!
The weekend was spent cutting, sticking, folding, tying and writing, my shoulders ache like never before and my eyes have gone all funny!
I'm really chuffed with how they've come out - I drew a sketch ages ago, from which we got the covers designed by a graphic design company who Dad works with a lot and called in a favour from. Mum and I then made them up and added the gems and ribbon on by hand. A big job, but well worth it!
