These little hearts were the favours at our wedding and my bridesmaids and I made 80 of them in a couple of sessions. They were a huge hit - almost all of them were taken home despite all sorts of electrical items and bits of outfits being left as people stumbled off the dance floor.Read More
Hello lovely homespinners. For today's Wedding Wednesday I thought I'd share some photos of our wedding, which were featured on one of my fave wedding blogs, Boho Weddings yesterday. Our photos were taken by Tino&Pip, the fab photographer duo of Penny and Martin and we are totally thrilled with them - they caught all the emotion, laughter, personal touches and happy tears of the day and were a delight to have around!
For the full post and our wedding story do pop over to Boho Weddings and have a gander. In the meantime, here are a few more of my favourite pics...Read More
I'm all for traditional scrap booking - I've got scapbooks for holidays I've been on, recipes I want to try, family events that deserve commemorating and am currently working on a bit of a spesh one for my wedding. But when I saw that 4homes have come up with their new online scrapbook I was pretty excited - the boy saw an advert on TV and recorded it to show me later - he knows me well!Read More

I'm planning to give you a Simple Supper each week - here's what we had for tea last night. You can mix and match the different elements but they went really well together and there was even guacamole left for my lunch today!

For my first weeks's Wedding Wednesday post I'm going to kick off with the question I've been asked the most since we got back from honeymoon - 'is it really depressing being back in the real world?' My answer is a resounding 'um...no?' People seem to expect you to get hit with the post wedding blues and I suppose there's an element of feeling sad it's all over. But the way we have always seen it is that all the planning, designing, making and dreaming we went through on the run up was for one reason: to have an amazing day which celebrated our love for each other and to spend it with our favourite people in the world. We achieved this and the day itself was better than either of us could have hoped for, genuinely the cliche of the best day of our lives. To be blue that it's happened and went so brilliantly would, in my opinion, be churlish and a little bit ungrateful.Read More
I have a confession to make. I am a bigamist. As well as being recently wed to my boy, I have had a wife for the past few years. She's the other "b" in my band, The bb Collective, and we have been each other's work wives since we started singing together. Alright, so it's not strictly a legal marriage, but thought it best to get my secret out in the open.
Good wife that I am, I had bought her a Cupcake Course for her birthday. With a lack of dates and then a couple of very annoying last minute cancellations by Cake Boy, who we originally booked with, I changed the plan and we went to My Chocolate, in Farringdon, for their Chocolate Martinis, Whoopie Pies and Cupcake afternoon.Read More
When I moved in with my now-hubby then-boyfriend I expressed a concern for where my 'pink' stuff would live. I've got a pathological inability to throw away any piece of paper with someone's handwriting on, bit of ribbon, button, scrap of material or end of wool ball and this had resulted in a huge amount of, admittedly pretty, space filling paraphanalia that needed a new home. I also had a lot of girly furniture and decor that I loved but didn't think would go down too well in our new shared habitat. Tom gave me ownership of the second bedroom in our new home and my "Craft Room" was born.Read More
Hello and welcome to my fledgling blog. I hope we will be spending more time together, all be it virtually, as this blog progresses so thought it only polite to introduce myself. My name's Bex and I'm a makeaholic.
