cheers to the blog

As a recent graduate and bride-to-be living on the west coast, I find myself making, baking and picture taking a lot in my spare time. Working in the tourism industry has fostered my creativity and the urgency of planning a wedding that is now only a year and a half away has got me constantly hunting for new and interesting DIY blogs all over the internet. As I seem to be spending more and more time making crafts, baking and cooking, photographing my life and hunting for antiques, I have decided to record my triumphs and tribulations for you to learn from and laugh at.

Cheers, and enjoy!
