Okay, so this isn't a proper DIY post, as in I haven't shown all the steps to this but I am so excited with my feature blackboard wall that I just had to share it!

I have wanted to do this chalkboard painted wall for so long and I finally did. I painted just one wall in some chalkboard paint I bought from B&Q. I bought two 750ml tins, however I only used a third of one tin and I only did one layer so it's pretty good and economical quality paint.

We left it plain and not written on for a few days as we were a little scared to ruin the look, however once we took the plunge it looked so much better with a few random scribbling's on it. I am going to get some pink and green chalk to add a bit of colour too. 

It's actually really handy having this chalkboard wall, I constantly write little lists and reminders now and write / receive cute little notes! It's easy to clean with a dry sponge too. I will probably add another coat of the paint after a while though to keep it looking fresh. 

If you have been considering doing this but are scared of using black, please go for it. I was quite surprised at how warm and cosy it has made the kitchen - I thought it would make the room look too cold and modern for my old house but it didn't at all.

Now, to find some more walls to use this chalkboard paint effect on...

I was so thrilled when I recently saw that actress Kate Bosworth had been photographed admiring one of the many foil fortune cookies we made for an event in New York hosted by Kim Crawford Wines. The foil cookies were created with specially worded fortunes for the guests and hung on a wooden tree as fruit - so clever!

This is why we love working on orders for events, it's inspiring to see how our products are used so creatively by event organisers - plus, you never know who's hands they will end up in - brilliant!

Cristina Rossi Photography

I was delighted  to get meet the lovely wedding photographer Cristina Rossi at the Etsy Wedding Fair that I recently attended in London. 

Cristina takes beautiful wedding photos and particularly loves taking photos of people. Her wedding and couple photographs have a very natural and authentic feel to them. This is due to Cristina's very relaxed style of direction. Couples are able to be themselves which helps them to relax and enjoy the moment. Something that is so important on your wedding day!

Cristina was born in Italy but is now based in London for the last 23 years. She grew up with a photographer father who clearly passed his passion on to her. Cristina even had her own dark room where she used to process and print her own photos.

Cristina's aim is to take photographs that you will fall in love with and treasure for years to come. I certainly have!

Below are some fantastic shots of my wedding stationery that Cristina took at the Etsy Wedding Fair.
