4 In The Best Of Emkie

Mood Board Monday | Flowers

Hi everyone,

I’ve decided to participate in Mood Board Monday over at Life as we know it this week, even though the theme is “flowers”, and generally I’m not a flower sort of person ūüėõ

I started out looking at mainly photos of what I would consider to be wedding themed flowers and then moved on to looking at lots of¬†different¬†crafty “flower” themed projects including, crochet (did you know I’m learning to crochet and participating in the crochet along over at ASWC at the¬†moment), paper flowers, flower washi tape, pretty flower nail polish and embroidery flowers (as I will be¬†participating¬†in another swap soon…this one is a “hoop art” swap – if your interested head over here to join – so looking at all the lovely¬†embroidery¬†designs¬†was good research ;D ).

By the time I had finished, I realised flowers¬†weren’t¬†that bad and there were lots of flower themed items that I LOVED and¬†couldn’t¬†decide Which items to share in my mood borad…so your getting 3 ūüėõ
