Wedding fast approaching....

Hello all and I hope that your May is proving to be a good one? I think it's been quite good so far, but it's passing so fast that I can't be certain!  Life seems to be a fast-moving treadmill of work, home, teenagers, work, home.....etc!  It's a busy time at work and I confess that my crafting time has been limited to a bit of therapeutic crocheting in an evening to 'chill out'. Not to mention that when I arrive home it sometimes feels like my house is an outpost of the Sixth Form centre at school, with various (& often numerous) teenage boys lolling about the place - mind you, much as I might complain it's only half-hearted really as I know I will miss it terribly when youngest has left/gone to uni/wherever!

Anyway, my step-daughter's wedding is fast approaching and we're all heading off to Dubrovnik for a big family gathering and to celebrate Lucy & Jon's nuptials! Outfits have now all been purchased (a pain for me - clothes shopping is definitely NOT on my 'favourites' list of activities) and we had a 'dress rehearsal' so that I could check we would all pass muster.  I will take plenty of pics (although youngest is on photo duty as he's got the best camera!) and share some when we return, as I probably won't get chance to blog again before the wedding.  But I thought I would share some pics of the wedding invitations that I made for Lucy and Jon. They wanted a sort of 'shabby chic' theme, so after looking at some samples and getting lots of ideas from pinterest (!) we came up with these

It was a bit like a production line in the Tilly's Crafts crafting room! But it was lovely to do them and I was thrilled to be asked! 

And I've been busy making fabric bunting for the reception tables, with gorgeous Tilda fabrics, so I'm hoping that it will all look just right - the happy couple don't deserve anything less as they are such a lovely couple! 

So happy crafting time to everyone, and I look forward to some time to 'Carry On Crafting' when we return from Dubrovnik! 

Back soon(ish)!
