Getting Crafty with Viking Stationary

A few weeks ago I was invited along to a crafty blogger event with Viking Stationary. I'm never one to turn down a chance to get creative and learn a few new things. I know I'm not alone when I say I love everything about stationary and it makes such a lovely change to go to a blogger event like this. Thankfully I had a Saturday free so I could hop on a train and join Viking. The event was held at King Street Townhouse (a stunning hotel with spectacular views of the city) on a beautiful sunny day in Manchester. There were lots of lovely bloggers all ready to get their craft on.

The Best Things About May

Hello internet people, it's about time I got some words posted on Hello Gwen. I've been super duper busy with house projects, I'm not able to put a paintbrush down! I've been working on a few new prints for my Etsy shop too. But I'm taking the time today to blog about the things I'm enjoying or looking forward to in the month of May...

New Home | The Little Things

Last week we moved into our new home! Myself and Josh have been renovating our first buy for months. Stripping it back to bare brick and starting again. It's been a long long process but it's finally looking like a place we can live happily in, rather than a building site. It's been the reason I've been so quiet on the blog front. I've just not had time to sit down and write, there's been so much to do!

Buying your first home is scary and exciting all at the same time. I'm more interested in thinking about the small details such as candles and cushions rather than worrying about the plaster or repointing. It's a good job we're different people in on that front - Josh has taken care of the foundations and now I get to accessorise to my hearts content!
