Fiesta De Amor – collaboration with Skinny Love Weddings Pt 1

I’m always thrilled to be asked to collaborate with fantastic people so when the team at Skinny Love Weddings got in touch of course I said Yes! Then to find out they were planning a bright, colourful, bold Fiesta day of weddings – well you can imagine my excitement.

I was lucky enough to supply both stationery and decor items for the day so both Love Ideas Ink and Wink were in the action!

Here are a few snaps from the day of the Love Ideas Ink wedding stationery taken in style by the always fabulous Natalie Morgan Photography.

Instagram love – May

A Little Bright - Instagram May

Even though it has been a bit quiet round here I still love the Instagram format and ability to connect with new creatives. Here are a couple of snaps from my recent posts:

1. Along with everyone else who bought my 2016 calendar I love flipping over the pages to see what is next! 2. I had to take a snap of these sweet glitter toppers before sending them off to a customer – they are one of my favourites! 3. Even though it is getting colder I’m still trying to get out for a walk as often as I can. 4. My daily essentials – tablet and glasses.
