New Year. New Projects. Busy Bee.

Time has flown by! One minute it was Christmas, then New Year came and went in no spectacular fashion and now it’s nearly March! Eek!

So, what have I been up to, let’s start at the very beginning (of the year) it’s a very good place to start…

My real-life job has been a little full-on. Having to do actual work that I actually get paid to do rather than sitting watching Pointless whilst folding paper into pretty things takes up a lot of time! So there’s my excuse – there has been very little making of beautiful things because I’ve been up to all sorts in the wonderful telly land of Emmerdale.

So, about a month ago I got a lovely message from my beautiful friend Debbie who is a travel wizard! She specialises in planning and taking total care of your dream holiday (what a woman!). She is exhibiting at a local wedding fair and wanted a floral decoration for her table. So I set to it! I had so many ideas of rainbow flowers in a low, long display or perhaps sunset colours or a splash of blues.

It didn’t quite work out that way…

The colours were just too garish. Perhaps on a bigger scale it could work. Colour variations over a large area would be so powerful – in fact I know my friend did such a thing with origami stars at her wedding and it was so beautiful!

So I opted for my trusty pastels! The colours are just so pretty and effective. I BLOODY LOVE PASTELS!

I really like the low displays, I might experiment with more flowers to make them taller and fuller, they’d look lovely as a centre piece for a wedding, it’d be easy to attach a table number or menu to too.

I also want to look at maybe suspending flowers on fishing wire. I have no idea how I’d do it yet but it’s something to think about!

That’s all for now! 😍
