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?

Good luck with your creating! I feel like that sometimes, and it is frustrating that you just can't get on with it when the inspiration hits! I know what you mean about halloween and Christmas inspiration:)
