Autumn Colour & What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday


I've felt like I've had a black cloud following me around for the last week for one reason or another, so I have spent Monday and Tuesday of this week trying to be good to myself:

I've spent some time reading

I've spent some time writing

I've spent some time baking (and of course eating) some very yummy chocolate brownies


and after that I started to feel the cloud lift and the Autumn colour shine through and I was ready to start making again.  This included:

an Autumn Leaves Brooch (above)
and this little Apple Brooch

So today - now that I have my creative head back on - I'm going to make a start on some of my handmade Christmas pressies.  On the agenda for this morning are a couple of crayon rolls and 4 bags using some (recently purchased) denim (oh yeah, I spent some time doing some retail therapy too) and some pretty and funky tea-towels.  




What's on your work-desk this morning? In need of inspiration? Take a peek at the list of talented peeps organised by Stamping Ground. Be warned though, visiting all those wonderful blogs is terribly addictive!

Have fun. xx

Well done you for getting out of your gloom - all things I love to do to. The brownies look yummy (and reminds me I told my 3 year old we would make cakes soon). Hope the weather is better for you we have blue skys again so I may stop crafting for a couple of hours and venture outdoors (plus I won't have to watch Robots from my peripheral vision a million times today - okay 6 but it can feel like a million!). Love the autumn brooches and can only agree with the joy of making bags for chrtistmas!
