Sorry this was posted before it was finished.  I've now completed it with pictures!

Once again it has been a long time since I blogged, but I have quite busy.
My younger son, Nick, was married at the beginning of July to his lovely bride, Emma. 

Nick and Emma knew exactly what sort of wedding they wanted.  A very natural but classy one!  Luckily I didn't have to make any of the invitations or stationery!  I have to admit that is just not my scene.
The two of them wanted little bags to put on the tables as favours and were planning on using natural home-made soaps.  They had sourced the soaps which were beautfiul and smelt absolutely gorgeous.  However they wanted something to put them in.  This is where I came in.  We decided to make some small hessian bags to put the soaps in, tied up with raffia.  I made a few samples which they liked so I agreed to make them.  All 100 of them!! 


They do look lovely, I must admit.  Worth all the hard work.

I also made a box for everyone to put their cards in on the day:

I didn't exactly make the basket (!) that came from ESK but I lined it and put the hearts and ribbons on it.  I thought it looked quite rustic and in keeping with the theme of the wedding.

Nick and Emma wanted a guest book too so I found a 'bog' standard spiral bound notebook from The Works.  I added ribbons to hide the spirals and then covered the front and back with hessian with felt hearts and sticky pearls.  I was rather pleased with the effect.  So I think were Nick and Emma.

Thank you for looking.
