Haven't blogged in a bit ((note to self to remember)) - things seem to have gone a bit mad lately, seem to be making Wedding Invites and cards in general left right and centre, but time last night to go and watch my son's school production of Hairspray, it was absolutely fabulous and they all worked so hard at pulling off a really brilliant production, thought i'd share with you a picture of my son as Corny Collins the TV Host ((well what proud mum wouldn't)), but ideas that Hollywood beckons may be a little far fetched. ha ha

Back to cards though and I'd seen a card on Pinterest that really blew me away so, with sewing machine in hand I thought I'd have a go. Not quite the professional finish the Pinterst one had but I had fun creating it and kept me quiet lol.

Thanks for taking the time to look - xxx Barbi xxx

Butterfly Wedding

Well, it's been a while since I put anything on my blog page, seem to have been sooo busy I completely forgot about it so sorry for being a bad blogger. Thought I'd share with you a Wedding Invitation I was commissioned to make, the brief was something simple that stood out, hmm quite a task when your mojo has completely vanished and only seem to have ideas when it's time to pack up and hit the stairs for bed!! Well, here it is, I hope you like it, the Bride certainly did and I've had alot of very positive comments from her guests too!! Always good especially when you doubt yourself.
I've entered this into the Less is More challenge there are some great cards and ideas on there
Thanks for popping over and taking a look, hopefully Mr Mojo will return at some point in the near future.
