WOYWW: Autumn Colour

Well, it turns out I am quite obsessed with Autumn leaves at the moment....

The kids and I went for a walk the other day to see what different, interesting leaves we could find and came home with a big bag of them.

It seemed a shame to just throw them away, so I have decided to use them in an Autumn picture.

So this is what is on my work-desk this beautiful Autumn Wednesday:

Lots of gluey fun! I'll let you know how it turns out.

What is on your work-desk today?

En Pointe

I have to admit I actually started this project this time last year as a gift for my niece for Xmas. Then, for whatever reason, I didn't get around to finishing it and it got put away, never to see the light of day.

I stumbled across it again however when I was looking through my felt stash for my Autumn Leaves Wreath. I realised that actually there wasn't that much left to do on it, so I thought it was time to get is finished.

Job done really - I got my creative fix for the evening, plus I now have a home-made present all ready for the festive season.

What do you think?

Turning over a new (Autumn) leaf

So here's the thing - life is hectic.

There is always a club or a dance class or a footie match to go to. A packed lunch to be made, reading to be listened to, homework to be checked......

It's not a complaint as I wouldn't have it any other way, but sometimes, somethings (such as crafting) have to be put on hold for a while.

Of late however, I've been getting a bit twitchy. A bit restless. In need of doing something creative.

Perhaps it's the time of year (how beautiful are those Autumn colours?) thoughts of Halloween and beyond to Christmas - there is lot of inspiration to be had.

So I want to start creating again in whatever form that maybe. No big projects, no long lists, no promises of filling an on-line shop, no craft fairs. Just straight forward crafty fun.

Perhaps I'll only get the chance to do 10 minutes a day. Perhaps projects will take a life time to finish. We'll see. Time will tell.

So I started. Yesterday. Whilst watching Strictly. I cut out some Autumn style leaves from my mountainous stash of felt. And today I stuck them onto a wreath that I had covered in red wool about 3 years ago. It was great, I loved the process. I'm quite pleased with the finished result too.

So this is me, turning over a new leaf. What do you think?

What are you creating at the moment?
