Weddings and snow and ice and lesson plans and Kimberly Scott and not enough fruit and fingers frozen to the bone. Heels too high, crazy people, makeup wearing dry, crisps and coke (for the American) and back to school on the Monday.
I designed and made the invites for this pretty bride, then I designed the Order Of Service for her, then I second shot her wedding with Kim, of which I will one day get around to editing into a stop motion, then I went to bed for 10+ hours.

Would I shoot a wedding again? Maybe.
Would I shoot a wedding again during the coldest November we have experienced in a while? Probably not!
One [half] of one of the invites I created for kb and jonjon's upcoming nuptials.
The upcoming nuptials in which I will be bridesmaid...
transatlantic bridesmaid that is
as my schedule doesn't afford me the time to actually be there!
This is a reject, btw. I'll let her decide when and if she wants the actual one posted online.
soon i'll have words, lots of words, of my weeks full of work and triedness and schedules and assignments and small children asking what my favorite colour is.
but this is the happiest box of invites since my last lot. brown paper and blackbrids and doilies. all the good things.
thank you, readers, for bearing with me through this transition period. my days are filled with so many blog worthy things, but my energy and brain can not quite work them all out yet. i may get very picture heavy the next months.
It's my final month of "freedom". Come September I will officially be a trainee teacher, and probably surviving on red bull and maybe some illegally acquired ecstasy.
Yes, I start my PGCE. I'm not scared or nervous about the learning and the teaching and the unruly students. I'm absolutely terrified at what it is going to do to my body, and whether this She Devil will even be able to cope with it.
So in this last month off, I'm designing more wedding invites. I'm going to Paris with the bff for a weekend. I'm finally going to pass my driving test (this is merely positive thinking. I will probably crash and be sued.) And I'm squeezing out my (probably) last zine entry for this year. That page up there is possibly a page from it, possibly not, possibly just a mess that needed to get out, who knows. What I do know if this edition is titled, Notes From a Hysterical Woman and will most likely be out at the end of the month, when the wedding I am designing for right now is done and dusted.
I haven't blogged about these last two weddings. But the invites for them have been hell on earth yet oh so beautiful. Here's a glimpse at what this last one looked like at the end.
Yes. That would be a piece of bunting for every individual invitation.
london was infiltrated with anti-capitalist, anarchist, enviromentalist protesters. thats a lot of ists.
obama's in the house! the house being the uk.
my puppy got her first period.
dan is away on business.
i finally (hopefully) found a cardstock supplier for sarah's wedding.
i ate no cheesecake! first time in 4 days.
i still have no job.
i have a pretend tattoo on my wrist.
i think i will watch brokeback tonight.
