It is gone

the summer. I really feel I didn't have time to enjoy it much this year. Due to all the wedding planning. After our honeymoon I started working at my new job. Many changes under a short time! I think I have been able to keep up with it fairly good though. The summer in my garden.

I'm a Mrs now

The wedding is over. So much planning for one day and then it is over before you even realize it.

We had a wonderful day though. The weather was good (could have been better but could also have been much worse), the guests had fun and the food was SO good. I had so much to think about and had quite a hard time just enjoying the evening. Anyways, now we have been happily married for over a month. After the wedding we went for a short honeymoon to Gdansk, Poland. It was nice and relaxed just enjoying the city and good food. Here is a sneak peek...

On it's way somewhere

I'm participating in a photograph challenge. The theme (free translation from English): On it's way somewhere. I found these guys in the garden, all on their way somewhere. I was quite amazed by the pattern on the frog in the first pic!

Wedding wip: floral crown

Just two weeks left until the wedding. Eeek! So much left to do and so little time. Mostly it's decorations that needs to be made and some practical stuff that still needs be planned. Other than that I think we have everything under control.

I decided to make a floral crown myself. It will be perfect with my hair down and matches my kind of simple boho-styled wedding dress. I'll just show you the wip pics, won't show the finished crown until I wear it. I'm really happy with how it turned out and it was so fun to make it. I will also be making matching floral bracelets for my bridesmaids.

The invitations

The invitations have been sent out a while ago and I can now show them here on the blog. It was a lot of work! We didn't find any ready stained paper so we stained it ourselves with tea. But I really do like how they turned out and hey it's only once you get to make your own wedding invitations, right? Luckily it was just 35 invitations.

Here they are. Rustic and peach-coral which will also kind of be the theme for the wedding. I addition to summer nature and green.

Spring came and summer is here. I've had a crazy spring. I mean really crazy. I wrote my masters thesis, had my last exams and last week I got my masters degree! I did it! Studying full time and working part time have been really crazy. Now it feels kind of empty. Nothing to study and no work to go to anymore. For the first time in my life I'm unemployed. I don't get to continue at my old work because I'm overqualified now. It's scary but a nice feeling of freedom too!

The wonderful thing about this situation is that I finally have time to create again. And blog and photograph more!

Almost all snow is now finally gone! And today all my plants moved to bigger pots. As in the first pic I made my pots from news paper. Easy, fast and cheap.

Last spring we moved to our house. I was so happy to finally have a garden. Last gardening season was my first and well it wasn't a big success really... This year will be better. And hopefully the summer will be warmer too. Anyways here is some inspiration!

The invitations part 2

This is not turning into a wedding blog. But right now my crafting is dedicated to doing wedding stuff. We will not have a big wedding just about 70 guests. But the cards have taken forever to make! The cards are now ready but we still need to write the text, maps and everything else.

Here is another sneak peek of our cards. Will show you the finished cards when we've sent them out.

The wedding planning is on my mind constantly right now. Such a hard time to decide what we want. Love the rustic feeling but also warm peach, orange and yellow tones... This week I've also been to a goldsmith that will be making my wedding ring. Something organic and asymmetric  looking with green stones. It will be made from my engagement ring since I would probably use only one ring anyways. Yei for recycling!

Here a bunch of pretty rustic finds.

Birch candle holders.

Floral crown
Twig ring
Custom guest book. We have ordered one of these and it is even prettier in person!

Have a lovely weekend!

The timeless journal

Without my journals and to do lists I would be lost. And terribly disorganized. I've been searching for that perfect journal with many blank pages, to do lists, monthly and daily planning. I stumbled upon Notbook Notbuk's timeless journal. They make journals that you fill out yourself with dates and months. Perfect for me since i sometimes have weeks that I don't have time to be organized and make list.My regular journal often have several blank weeks where I haven't written anything which really is a waste of paper.

Plus my journal has cute little penguins on it!
