Inspire Me Monday (29.06.15)

I've been a bit distracted this week with decorating my living room. It hasn't been done in four years and needed a fairly major overhaul, so since last Saturday my routine has been sleep, work, eat, paint. Quite literally. Hence no blog post since last Monday. Bleh.

Anyway, all done now and looking gorgeous :)

For this weeks Inspire Me Monday post, hosted by one of my favourite blogs, Create With Joy, I thought I'd share my inspirations for a wedding present I am going to attempt to make for my friend Lara.

 Personalised Bamboo chopping board from Getting Personal 

I have sourced some lovely oak worktop and have been meaning to turn it into three or four chopping boards for a while, so the opportunity to make one for my friend seemed too good to miss. I've been researching some designs and have fallen for several ideas - I now just need to mock something up.

Love Birds Chopping Board from Sugar Tree Gallery via Etsy

Custom Chopping Board from TrueMomentos via Etsy

Wish me luck with the creation! I'll post the results as soon as it's finished. 

What are your Inspire Me Monday inspirations?


  1. Good luck! These look fabulous, I've never seen anything like them before.

  2. That is such a fun, personal present. Praying it goes well =) Blessings, Tiffany
