[blue and white deer head]

Last Wednesday was Brisbane's show holiday.  I took the opportunity to indulge in some much needed craft time - oh so therapeutic!
This blue and white fabric adorned deer head is what I did...
I had started out with a plywood deer head.  I found this baby on eBay.
I had originally been admiring it on Matt Blatt but after being on the "notify when back in stock" waiting list for what seem like an age, I looked elsewhere.
I then purchased some gorgeous fabric from Peppermint Stitches in Toowong - possibly the most colourful eye-candy covered fabric store you'll ever come across.  Do yourself a favour crafty Brisbanites!
To adhere the fabric I used a spray glue and then carefully cut around the shapes.  The added thickness of the fabric did make assembling the pieces a little more laborious but we got there in the end.
Can't wait to show him off to you once he's hanging on our wall - but truth be told I couldn't wait!
Have a lovely week ahead everyone! Jx

Psst - eight weeks to go!

[secret squirrel]

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I think this is officially the longest gap between blogging I've had since starting! It's not that I have been too busy, or that I've been on a creativity vacation. It's that lately, all that we've been doing is planning, deciding on bits of this and that, and creating lovely details for the wedding.
The hardest thing for me is not being able to share this journey in its entirety, particularly with regards to things like the lovely invites we've chosen or the favours we're making.

I can't wait to reveal all these goodies to you all, but for now, mum's the word.

9 weeks to go!
