home inspiration pinning going on in the last few weeks and as you can expect I have more than a few ideas as to how everything might look when we get in there. A girl can dream right? So how will I adapt the ideas above to fit our new space?

WEDDING CRAFT ROUND-UP: TISSUE PAPER POM-POM TUTORIAL AND OTHER WAYS TO MAKE YOUR PARTY CEILING PRETTY.
The pom-pom wedding trend is nothing new...if anything it is a little 2012; but since I first saw our venue (a very plain concert hall), I knew they would be a perfect solution to make the hall seem more festive and fun. It is easier than ever to pop into a craft store and buy the fluffy wonders, flat-packed in threes and in different colours, if you are willing to spend at least £5 (or in Germany nearly 8 Euros)for the privilege. They are also available on ebay and actually for some reasonable prices if you aren't a crafter, or have no time before your wedding to fit in a few evenings of paper folding. But the best option for anyone who has basic folding and cutting skills, and a week of free evenings is to make your own. I made over 35 pom-poms for less than 10 Euro, and still have packs of tissue paper left over for future crafting. If you want to skip ahead for alternative ceiling ideas.....scroll down to after the tutorial! So here's how you make them:

Well hello, again. It has been so long since I wrote on here that I am now a married woman (well, technically a twice married woman). Since November, when I last wrote, a LOT has happened. I stopped working, moved to German, attended 480 HOURS of German lessons, planned my church wedding, crafted all of the decorations and found us a bigger flat to move into. I probably don't need to say, that in this time, I changed a bit as a person. Now that I have figured out what that means, I am ready to start blogging again. So what's changing in this here blog?
