365 Photo - Feb 1st
Today I spent some time playing around with a new design for Wedding/Engagement Invitations. This is what I came up with. I think I might try them as well using paper instead of ribbon. Might give them a whole different look.

365 Photo - Jan 31st
Today as I was wandering around the rooms in my house, I stopped for some reflection in my formal dining room. I had a long hard look at all the trinkets I have around. I have so many cherubs, it's probably too many, but they were the theme for my wedding. So I can't bear to put any of them away. I undoubtedly will have to if I want to achieve the uncluttered house that I am aiming at this year. One of the cherubs is very special to me. I bought it at a craft fair that I went to with my best friend. I covered it in decoupage with tissue paper and it has sat proudly in my front room now for a few years. This cherub means a lot to me because when ever I look at it I am reminded of that special friend. She had to move interstate around 12 months ago due to family reasons. That was a tough time for me because we had become so close so quickly. She was like the sister I never had. I don't easily let people get close to me as quickly as I did her. It was like we had known each other in a previous life or something. We will always be friends, even though there is a lot of physical distance between us, and we don't talk as often as I would like, I know that she will always be there for me, and I for her.
So todays photo is of that special cherub.
