I recently posted a gorgeous Paper Flower Bridal Bouquet tutorial
by Lia Griffiths, here.
I absolutely adore making paper flowers. I have Created a myriad of flowers in my time in many shapes, colours and sizes. I just love using the Creative efforts of others as a spur to try a new technique, medium or manner of display.
in the early days of my Blogging,
I would constantly compare my work to that of other Creatives.
A HUGE mistake!
Mark Twain did say,
“Comparison is the death of joy”.
Nowadays, I get such a thrill from seeing
the imaginative constructions of others.
It genuinely inspires me to ‘have a go’ and try my own version
of their beautiful composition.
So feast your eyes on these inspirational fleurs.
1. Emily’s Board: paper flowers
2. Kathryn Grady: paper flowers
3. Classicly Amber: Paper Flowers
4. Shannon Bell: Paper flowers
As always, if you do make some of your own spring blossoms,
then share a link in the comments.
I would genuinely love to see what your hands Create.

Have you ever wanted to have crack-a-lack at doing calligraphy?
I know that you can get kits and books and heaps of online tutorials.
How would you like a really simple version,
that will get you writing
– yep you read that correctly WRITING –
your own place cards (wedding)
door sign (bedroom door)
or even a title page (homemade recipes)?
Here’s a couple of tutes,
that will show you how just doing it
is all the skills you require.
Here’s my attempts.
Not so appalling is it?
when trying to think of words to write!
I suppose if I practice a bit
I could actually get good at it.
Will you have a crack?
I’d love to know if you do :D
Sorry just had to share this – it’s just a tad funny!

I had to remind all my peeps. If you’re in the South West at ALL this weekend, come and say hello @ the OBF Wedding Showcase. I’d love to give you hug, wave or slap on the patootie (your choice).
FYI – There is a licensed bar . . . if you need an incentive :)
My sidewalk blackboard for today and tomorrow :)

I am attending the Old Broadwater Farm Wedding Showcase this Sunday & I have to admit, it looks a tiny bit AWESOME.
There’ll be live bands & DJ’s, fashion parades (what woman doesn’t love looking at wedding dresses – seriously?!?), workshops (by moi), giveaways, exhibitors (obviously), tastings and sooooo much more.
I’m a cited (that means I’m so excited that I can’t talk proper :)

. . . I have decided to launch a new blog. The Perfect DIY Wedding blog.
Hopefully the name says it all.
I’d love to read your comments about it.
