My version! 
So I haven't posted in ages - I know, I'm sorry, but I have been SO BUSY!  I'll post whenever I can get a spare moment!

Anyway, I found this fab tag tutorial on Saltwater Kids (via Pinterest, of course.) I saw it and decided I needed to try it!

I've become completely addicted to Pinterest lately (as if that wasn't already SO obvious!) BUT I don't actually try any of the things I pin! I've done a few, but I currently have 3239 pins, so I think I'm slightly behind. This is me trying to rectify that.

Since I already have a Picnik account (again, evident from previous posts!) this was a piece of cake! I can't believe I never thought to try it before! >> This was my first attempt - WAYY too big when I printed them off - Go smaller than you think! - but now I know how to do it, my mind is buzzing with ideas - Christmas ones? teeny-tiny ones?  How about "Made with Love" ones??

 Saltwater Kids version!
 If you want to try making your own tags, check out the tut here! Much cheaper than store-bought ones - They're pretty much FREE, in fact, and you can personalise them with names, special occasions, anything! I'm thinking New Baby ones would be adorable, with the name and date of birth of the child!  That's all for now folks, Byeee! S xx

Sorry! (And Good News!)

OK, I've been completely MIA lately. I haven't posted in ages! I'm sorry, and I know there's no excuse, but I'm going to make up one anyway! It's September, so I'm back in school again, and it's just realllly hard to get a post finished! I'll do my best, but no promises! ;) You can check out my Pinterest boards if you get withdrawal symptoms! Somehow, I always find a spare few seconds to pin one or two lovely things!
In other news, I've just found out that my comments OK, comment, :) will we featured in the September/October issue of House and Home, a great Irish home and interior magazine! I commented a while back on a room on their website. As I am ever-so-slightly opinionated, it came quite easily to me! Imagine my shock when I checked out the digital preview of the mag, and there was my name! It's not a huge piece, just a little snippet, on Page 13, but made me so giddy! :) I can't wait for the issue to come out - not just because of my comment, (!) but because they have what looks like it'll be a great feature on Design*Sponge, one of my all-time favourite websites for decorating and DIY Projects! I actually buy it anyway - so no sponsoring here, just excited-ness on my part! If you don't live in Ireland, I'm afraid I don't know if you can get it, but you can browse their cool website! Click on preview in the top right-hand corner! Until then BYE!
