The 6 Week Countdown Begins!

Well goodness me, didn't that month just zip by? I am appalled at how quickly the time is going - would you believe there is only 6 months to go til the wedding and I still have 10.. yes TEN(!) DIY projects to complete. Oh. Em. Gee. It all seemed like such a good idea at the time..... 

On that list are (in no particular order)
- Finish making my bouquet 
- Custom coathangers
- Programme fans
- Menu chalkboard
- Papel Picado
- Tissue paper pom poms
- Table names/numbers
- Seating Plan
- Place cards

Just writing all that down gives me heart palpitations. What on earth was I thinking!!?

The reason I've been so quiet lately isn't just because I've been flapping my hands and running up and down screaming "WHAT TO DO?!" I am pleased to report that I have a new job! I am now officially a content writer for a local online company, which is a breath of creative fresh air from my previous role as an IT helpdesk drone. (And yes, we did ask "Have you turned it off and on again?" all the time. IT WORKS, DAMNIT).

OK so in other news (between all the DIY stuff) I am heading off to Hyper Japan this weekend. This is only the second one I've ever been to but we had a great day out at the last one so I'm really looking forward to it. Also it gives me the opportunity to dress up, which.. well, is always a bonus in my books. I'm planning on a sort of casual-lolita-ish outfit, with a big poofy black and white dress, a pink cardigan, poosssibly my lolita wig and my cat shoes. If I have the courage. And if the humidity subsides a little, else I will melt in a big puddle of polkadots on the floor of Earls Court and nobody is going to want to clear that mess up.

Catch you soon, crafters!
