Well, I have been quiet recently here on the blog :) But some of you will probably know why!
On 31.12.2011 I got married! Yay!
For the past few months I have been completely distracted, I have not been making much for my smittenkitten.de shop, I have been reading a lot of my favourite forums (Craft Pimp, Crafteroo & Beadbuddies to name but a few) but I have not been contributing as much as I normally do. I have been concentrating on dresses, shoes, table decorations, hair & makeup, wedding favours, bridesmaids, venue, registrar, wedding cake, kiddies goodie bags, photographers, bridal underwear, stationary, chair covers, and on and on ... rather than crafts and/or beads! hehe! It's honestly been exhausting, but down to the final detail, everything was perfect - So I'm gonna give a shoutout to who we used for these final details.

The day itself was amazing, memories keep on floating in and out of my head - and I keep on asking Joe lots of questions too about his memories, things that I may have missed! Things still coming to me, and now it was a week ago already ... it still feels like yesterday :)
There will be a million more pictures to come, I don't want to bore you with too many, so here are a few favourites from my facebook tags this last week.
