The invites are out!

The SUDs household has been a hive of activity these past few weeks!  My wedding plans are well underway and the invites have been made and posted  :-)

Invite 1 

Because I am having an outdoor wedding in the picturesque Cloudehill Gardens, I thought that a floral invite would suit beautifully.  I’m not a natural when it comes to paper crafts and have my darling friends, Narelle and Anne, to thank for their help, advice and the late-night craft sessions! :-)

Invites 2

I am planning to make a Guest book using the same paper and embellishments, because I haven’t been able to find an off-the-shelf one that I like.  Ooh… I’m having ideas… maybe I should stick to what I know best and create a fabric-covered one?! Ooh!  Ooh!  Now the cogs are turning!!! :-) he he…

My head is spinning with plans and ideas and I type-up a new to-do list almost every day, but I’m very pleased with the progress I’m making.  Today I visited some beautiful ‘flower farms’ up in the rolling hills, gosh it was gorgeous and I wish I’d had my camera with me!  So now my wedding bouquet is decided upon and I will once again be calling on my loyal friend Narelle, to help me put it all together.  Have you heard of the phrase, “Jack of all trades and master of none”?  Well, to describe Narelle I would have to say “Master of all trades and Jack of none!”  She and her gorgeous mother can put their hand to anything – they are amazing!

I love being busy, it’s great to kick goals every day… and I’m so inspired to create!  This year I plan to design and make my first quilt; to make and finish at least two art dolls; to develop my pattern business; to make costumes and clothing for my young Rosie; and to spend more time in blog land!  Can’t wait!  :-)

Please excuse me for not replying to my messages recently, please know that you put a smile on my face and if I had the time I’d be “popping on over” for a chat and the kettle would be brewing for our cuppa!

Until next time – hugs! – from a very excited Vikki  :-)

Thank you for my beautiful invitation Vik. I feel so honoured. The photos don't do it justice - it is even more pretty and shimmery in person - Love it!!!

Hi Vikki,
Such lovely invites, especially in the flesh :)
I expect you guys had a lot of fun making these up :)
I think using the same paper & embellishments for a guest book would be great. Deb did much the same for Adam & Naomi as you will recall :)
Thoroughly enjoy your excitement...its wonderful to hear about.
Love & hugs,
Sharon
