The Crafty Lass Etsy store took a small break over the last few months whilst I am on maternity leave – and while I am still enjoying some amazing time with my ever growing lovely little one (check The Crafty Lass Instagram account for lots of photos!! #babyspam) – the Etsy store has now reopened!
Going back to the beginning of 2016, The Crafty Lass was asked to make something special for a couple’s beautiful wedding – I was honoured to have been allowed to make something for their big day! After discussions on colours, themes, styles – we decided on making some paper peonies in pinks and creams – and some

I know, sounds crazy right!? Happy New Year! I can’t actually believe it is January 4th – where did Christmas go?? How did that happen?? I had been planning ump-teen blog posts for Jan 1st – but, here we are… Well, time flies when you are having (lots of) fun… I was both humbled and
So today, on a Sunday – on a day I normally reserve for not traipsing across the country, racking up extra mileage in my little Smarty – a day I normally associate with crafting in my little office, food shopping and the general chores (the boring stuff!) to try and get ahead for the week…not
One of my most recent projects was to create this vintage florals inspired, romantic bunting for some friends getting married.

So, the Bride and Groom’s initials were ordered
Finally some sunshine today! Hoorah! And with such a glorious bright day pouring through our windows, I couldn’t help but re-look at our wonderfully bright wedding ‘guest’ print (instead of a book) on the wall in our hallway. Our wedding was mildly themed around the fantastic film ‘UP‘. If you haven’t seen it – why not?!
I was taken away for a surprise weekend this weekend – it led to a new craft, a new set of inspirations and a reconfirmed realisation I definitely married the right man! So, one whole year since our big day. And this year… all I knew was I had to pack a bag, and be ready
I was bought a truly amazing birthday present – something really REALLY brilliant. A glue gun. YES! Today – I was planning to go to the gym, do some needed food shopping – but no, no today became a lovely crafty filled day of tea, leftover birthday cake, and paper flower making! I have wanted to
This time last year, I was knee deep in petals, and panic. It’s coming up to our first wedding anniversary – where does time go?! Of course I can’t help reminiscing about what a wonderful craft proj… I mean, day it was! 😉 Our (who are we kidding, my) colour scheme… I couldn’t decide. So,
