One man and his shed

I like taking photos of people when they don't know I'm doing it. That could be perceived as stalking but I think it's okay when it's photos of my fiancé putting up our shed. It took nearly all day Monday to do it but it's looking good. Next stage is actually putting something in it but we don't like to rush these things...

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter break. It was so nice to have four whole days of relaxing. I managed to get our invitation wording and layout done and finished my tiara. I'm still not sure about wearing a tiara but at least I have the option. I'll post photos on crafty bride soon.

It's Easter so...

enjoy a lovely slice of Simnel cake.

I'd never even eaten it before, let alone baked it but it was very easy to make. I used this recipe from Waitrose.

On the hunt...

for the perfect font.

I know what I want our wedding invitations to look like and I know roughly what I want them to say. But I need to find just the right font to say those words.

Love the effect but it's not the look I'm after.

I really like this one, it's a contender!

I like this one a lot, it could be the winner!

I love eggs...

And not the Easter kind (well yes I like those obviously but that's not what I'm writing about here). I was looking for a recipe yesterday for a quick lunch and I found this one. It was the first time I'd ever tried baked eggs and it was delicious. So today I wanted another quick and easy lunch for one and I found this blog. So a simple combination of spinach, egg, nutmeg and cheese gave me this...
Will blog again soon, I promise!

The best crafty read on the Internet?

Well I certainly think so, but then I'm biased. Take a look for yourself...

In 6 months time...

I'll be a wife.

There's lots of craftiness planned but nothing I can show you yet. Soon I promise.

In the meantime, here's some inspiration, click the image to see the original on flickr and the credits.
