I heart vintage newsprint!

Whoa!!! March needs to slow down, it's going so fast it's scaring me!!! I was hoping to have more pictures of my wedding invitations from the fair on here before now, but best laid plans and all that. lol. I've been a busy bee again, I have booked two more wedding fairs, one in April and one in October. They are both vintage wedding fairs. I'll be adding an events page to my sidebar with all the deatils on. The next one is on 10th April in Leamington Spa. I'm really looking forward to it as I love all things vintage and I will be in my element! I just have to get cracking with more samples of stationery, favours and wedding decor now, so many ideas, not enough hours in the day! I'm looking forward to planning my stand/display, I want to make it better and bit different from last time!

I've have also had several consultations with some lovely brides to be and I am in the process of making their requests a reality with some samples. It was so much fun chatting weddings and stationery with them too. I have a few Mother's day cards I need to make too over the weekend.

Along with that was the mine field of sorting out the paper
work etc, to do with registering as self employed (I already have a full time job, but have to do this too) to keep the tax man happy! I've also had to sort public liability insurance out as I am having stands at fairs etc. The not so fun but compulsory part!!

I'm still enjoying making our wedding plans too, a
lthough we have almost everything choosen and booked! Just all the making and creating then!! So many plans and projects, a proper vintage inspired DIY wedding!! A few things left to order and buy too but nearly there. Plus the all important (and probably much needed by then) honeymoon to book! Soooo looking forward to it all. It's going so fast though, time flies when you're having fun! I must get myself in shape now, been going to zumba which I'm enjoying but need to step it up a gear now.

Anyway enough of me rambling on, here are a few of the invitations that I had on display at my last wedding fair, the plan is to make the matching, place cards, order of service/order of the day, favours etc so I can show case the whole range of each design, plus I want to add tons more designs, although these can be changed, etc to s
uit peoples tastes/needs. I am loving vintage newsprint at the moment, that and vintage sheet music and vintage book print, so watch this space more to come with those.

Thank you for stopping by, I'll be back soon with some Mother's day cards and some altered notepads to show you.
