Deer friends! (you'll see why this is funny in a minute)

I'm back! Hopefully anyway. The wedding is over. (Most of) the guests are gone. It was a fantastic time, but hubby and I are both looking forward to having some quiet time! I'm looking forward to having some crafty time :). The day itself was amazing. From two weeks before the big day it rained and rained and rained. Roads flooded, there were days I couldn't get to work because of flooded bridges. Power and water went out. And then the day of the wedding dawned with perfect bright sunshine. The day after it went back to rain. People keep telling me God must have been smiling on us, I think they may be right!

The official photos are still a few weeks away and will be shared with you when they come, but good friends of ours pulled us separately outside during the reception to snap these shots, which I just love.

You'll see some craftyness from me soon, and hopefully you'll see me commenting a bit more regularly too!

Waving from far away!

Hello friends!

Life has been even busier than I expected and I have to admit, I don't think there's going to be regular blogging again until after the wedding (now less than 3 weeks away!), because balancing the wedding stuff, work, studying and having a steady stream of houseguests has meant that at the moment I don't have a life outside of those things! Yesterday I packed up my sewing machine and stitchy stuff completely for the next few weeks, because 3 men will be staying with us from Tuesday (in our small apartment with one spare room) and I could just predict how that would turn out!

I'm missing my craft :(, but everything else is going well. I had my final wedding dress fitting last weekend and it is all ready to go, this weekend we do our final meetup with the caterers, photographer etc. Lots of friends and family are coming in from overseas and around the country, so it is lovely to see everyone, if a little overwhelming in terms of space sometimes.

Forgive me for my lack of commenting, I have been trying to keep up with my blog reading at least. .  sometimes more succesfully than other times!

Be back soon!
