Meet Louise...

I would like to introduce you to my oldest friend - who is now a new blogger!

Her name is Louise... and when I say oldest friend I don't mean age, but years of friendship.
Louise and I used to run around the playground together as Kindergartners and she attended my first proper birthday party (age 6!).

Louise is the creative genius behind Illume Design. Which is a gorgeous online stationery company which offers beautiful invitations for weddings, christenings, baby announcements, kids birthday invitations etc. Louise has designed all the invites herself so you can see just how talented an artist she is!!!
The great thing about Illume Design is that you can also get coordinated bomboniere, and gift tags, place cards, rsvp, thank you notes, so that your party will have a coordinated theme throughout!

Here are some of my favourite things from her shop!

So anyway, Louise has started blogging and so I thought I would introduce you to her so please stop by her blog and say 'Hi' as she is so lovely and so talented.

She also has a GORGEOUS 10 week old baby boy called Aleksandar who is just sooo cute - they came over to my house on tuesday for lunch and he is such a good baby! Have a look at how cute he is.
Louise and I can't wait till our baby boys grow up a bit more and can run around and play together like we did!

I hope you have a great Friday!
