Beautiful Blogger Award!

Standard

What a lovely surprise I had on my birthday (Monday), not only did me and PR go away for a few nights to Edinburgh, but I have been nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award! I was nominated by Creative Pixie because we both encourage each other’s love of all things crafty! How lovely 🙂

It is a wonderful concept where bloggers nominate their favourite blogs for the award.

The rules are:

1. Thank the person who nominated you –Thank you so much for nominating me – was a lovely discovery on my birthday! I have thoroughly enjoyed following your blog from the beginning and  your lovely comments on my blog are greatly appreciated’ 🙂

 2. write a few interesting (?) facts about yourself.

  • I work as a Staff Nurse on a very busy surgical ward looking after Head & Neck Cancer patients and also Breast Cancer patients.
  • I am getting married on October 12th 2012 to my best friend. (Awww 🙂 )
  • I like rock and metal music.
  • I used to swim competitively  for my home county and won many awards for fastest time in my age group.
  • My eyelashes are so long they touch my glasses.
  • I have a habit interrupting others when talking.

3.paste the award on your blog – see above!

4. link the person who nominated you for the award – http://creativepixie.wordpress.com/

5. nominate up to about 5 of the blogs you like with links to their sites.

These are some of the blogs I like to read and have nominated for the Beautiful Blogger award:

Craft Time Of The Non-Hook Variety.

Standard

Today I decided to try and make a good stab at our wedding plans. I have many (probably around 20!) of magazines similar to that above. All of which have been stuffed into a drawer for the last 4 or 5 months.

So, out came the glue stick and scissors to make mood-like boards for wedding ideas:

Most of the ideas I seem to be drawn to are all of the colour purple or variations of. Found a lovely picture of a long cascading bouquet in purple – but think a bit of ivory would help break up the ‘purpleness’ of it.

I also spent some time a few days ago looking at different types of ivory fabric – but then stumbled upon some lovely ivory lace 🙂 I must admit, I was in my element!

My Purple (with a couple of exceptions) flower board:

Sorry this next photo is not that great, but I just had to show you this dress – personally don’t think the photo does the dress justice as the fabric is heavenly! I love the tulle material over the arms. I don’t think it is a dress that I would wear as don’t think it would suit me but that does not mean I can’t drool over the fabric does it?? 🙂

This next picture might make you realise just how much mood-boarding I have done today – whoops, out of glue!

But at least the wedding drawer will now be tidy and organised (well, sort of…. for now anyway!) Off to a wedding fayre in a few weeks so will probably have more ideas/plans to add to the ever growing stash of magazines, business cards, leaflets etc etc. I’m definitely becoming a firm believer of too much choice is a bad thing!

Ahh...tidy! For now 🙂

 

Well, I think that’s enough about weddings, so tomorrow its back to my lovely hook and my crochet project. A few more granny squares have been done for my Moroccan inspired project – new yarn colours turned up so have a few more with different colours in which I think look more ‘Moroccan’. Photos to follow another time…..
