I recently found a new totally awesome blog called The Printerie and I want to share it with you. She's a South African blogger who also does graphic design and event planning AND give lots of free printables. There are two things by Lucky No 9 that you totally need to check out this week.
FIRST: Bianca-Jade Packham, the creative talent behind Lucky No 9 and regular guest on The Pretty Blog, has some killer DIY advice over on The Pretty Blog. For all you ladies and gents planning a big DIY wedding, Bianca-Jade delivers down-to-earth, give-it-to-you-straight, no-sugar-coating advice on DIY projects. For example, if you're not really that crafty, don't take on a whole bunch of crafty projects! The implication of course is crafting isn't as easy as it looks. Amen to that, sister! Other less common advice she offers is:
- Don't assume DIY is cheap
- If you get in over your head, ask for help (and have some reserve in your budget for this)
- And less is more (Don't take on too much)
Do head over and read the full post. You'll be enlightened to be sure.
SECOND, for your DIY delight , and crafty ease, Bianca-Jade shared these amazingly fantastic prinable vintage-inspired placemats (also posted on The Pretty Blog.) Click to Download Vintage Placemates And be sure to check it out and start following these two delightful blogs!
