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
