Hello! I'm back today (two weeks in a row!) with another round up of some lovely romantic quotes I've been illustrating. Some of these are from my Instagram project 🌸#100daysofblooms🌸 which I completed in July as part of #the100dayproject


As always, I'd love some suggestions for new quotes & lyrics for me to illustrate! Do you have any favourites you like to see? Let me know in the comments 💕 


Well, I knew it had been a while since I wrote on the blog but I've just looked at the date on my last post and seen it's been 4 months!  So an update is long overdue, especially as we're now only 6 weeks away from our own wedding day!

We've had lots of exciting things happening recently, and lots more to come for the rest of the year too, but I'll share more about that in another post.

As for the wedding, things are really starting to take shape and we're not too far from being finished with the to do lists! Although those to do lists do seem to keep growing every time I think I've reached the end!  

We had our final meeting with the venue yesterday and gave them all the final guest numbers and talked through all our choices for the day. We're in the process of finalising the table plan, playlists and readings (and hope to have all the decided in the next week or so!)  We also collected the remainder of the suits, and ordered the waistcoats to pick up a couple of days before the wedding. 

Next weekend we're heading to Brighton for the day to make our wedding rings with Elizabeth Anne Norris. We were struggling to find anything we particularly liked, especially for Jamie's ring. So when I discovered that we could make each other's and enjoy a lovely day out together in the process, that seemed like the perfect choice. I will of course share how we get on and lots of pictures from the day.

And of course I've been busy working on all the stationery and decorations! I've been creating lots of lettering for various signage, designing menus, illustrating posters and making paper flowers, among lots of other things! It's very nearly all finished and should be ready to send to the printers in the next few days. After that I'll have lots of cutting & folding to do! 

The time is flying by so quickly and I know the wedding day will be here before he know it! Hopefully I'll squeeze in one final update before the big day.

There's a few sneak peeks below of what I've been working on... 



This year I've decided to take part in #the100dayproject. I gave it a go last year on my other Instagram account, @emmamargaretillustration with a project dedicated to characters, but only reached the half way point... fingers crossed I make it to the end this time around!

I've chosen "blooms" as my theme, and my unique hashtag is #100daysofblooms🌸
Each day for the 100 days, I'll be sharing either a sketch, an illustration, a quote or a photo, all around the theme of pretty blooms and florals.

I'm planning on using some of the work from this project to create a new collection of invitation designs later in the year, but we'll have to see how it goes!

Here's a look at my progress so far...
