My new direction

Hi folks, I have been thinking alot about my skills and passions of late.  I have expanded my experience of craft to sewing recently and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This came about as Ive been thinking about my life, what experiences I have had and what Id like to have.  Sewing was something I thought Id try to expand my craft skills.  But I have other skills that I have not really given a chance to develop.  I attended my first creative writing group this evening and I have had a really good night.  I was inspired to write something in 10 minutes, which when I first discovered Id have to write something this evening I really truely did not expect to know what to write.  However, something someone in the group mentioned gave me inspiration.  It was pretty cool to say the least.  My little bit of writing I did was not great but the ideas were there to expand and grow.  So who knows maybe one or two of my posts might be some creative writing.  Of course journaling is a form of creative writing so I have done it within my crafting but Im planning to expand and grow.  Moving up to the highlands has definately been the right move for me.  Its amazing what I have actually done for my wellbeing.  First I started my running by doing the couch to 5k I then began to go mountain biking.  I even went to Holland for a weeks cycling holiday.  That was an amazing holiday.  So here I am posting for the sake of posting.  No photos this time just some of my thoughts and feelings.  Thank you for reading and I hope you get something from this post.

Finished Christmas Planner

Well, I spent this evening finishing off my christmas planner and I thought Id share a couple of the photos with you.  Im not sure Ive got enough in it but time will tell.  I put in a pocket page so if I have not put in enough pages I have somewhere I can put in extra if required.  I also put in a couple of envelopes so there is storage for receipts and the likes.  Not sure how practical it is but I guess only time will tell.  The first scheduled in event in my planner is the craft fair   Christmas craft shopping here I come on 26th October :)

Getting organised for Christmas

I know, I know, some of you are shouting but its not even Halloween.  You see, its like this. Im always leaving things to last minute, almost running out of time to make my christmas cake and forget to make cards and mean to get round to adding the extra little special touches to gifts and things but run out of time.  so this year Im going to get organised.  Now to get organised, I needed to make a Christmas Planner and to have it ready to be planning for Christmas I thought it best to start making it now.  So here is the first stage to getting organised.  Ive made a front page for my Christmas Planner 2012.  I hope to make my own pages and use my bind it all to complete the book.  I have my ideas of what I want my pages to look like but Im always open to ideas, oh yeah and if anyone has any ideas how I can protect my cover from getting ruined as I will be using this book please feel free to comment :)  T x

Here is the birthday card I have just made for my dad.  It took alot of shuffling and changing my mind of the background colours but I think it turned out not too bad. :) T x
