Since starting work at docrafts I’ve really been inspired by all of the cards that go into Creativity magazine and all the designs I find when researching ideas.
One thing I’ve learnt living away from home and venturing off into adulthood is there are a load more birthdays, anniversaries and events in general that you HAVE to remember. Whilst living with my parents I was always covered in the joint family card that was sent, but not anymore!
I FINALLY(!) got around to making a shaker card, after previous disastrous attempts I thought that now was as good a time as any to have another go, and it’s safe to say I am now hooked, what this space for some Easter themed shaker cards coming soon.
Whenever it comes to Mother’s Day I always struggle for what to get – everything in the shops always seem to be things you’d give if you’re a child. So when the peeps at Hobbycraft asked me to have a go at making some wall art I leapt at the chance.
It seems like an age since I had time to sit down and write a post. The past seven weeks have quite literally flown by in a whirlwind of decorating, puppy mishaps, work and freelance craft projects – it’s safe to say that the Easter bank holiday weekend couldn’t come soon enough!
Over the past few months, we’ve been decorating our second guest bedroom which is affectionately now known as ‘the study’. Jason primarily uses it as his office, but it also functions as our main guest bedroom when we have people to stay.
I do love working with air drying clay, and the lovely people over at Hobbycraft asked me to make some (dare I say it!) Valentine’s inspired bowls using the marvelous white stuff.
The weather finally decided to perk up today, and now that I was fully recovered from the work Christmas party on Friday night we decided to head out for a few hours into the forest.
Murphy absolutely loves it in the forest, he spends the whole time running around with the biggest smile on his face, in and out of literally every single puddle. He’s recently become quite fond of his ball (it’s only taken six months!) so he had a lovely time today splish-splashing and getting extra muddy!
This year we were a little late in putting out tree up – I have to admit we’re struggling to get into the Christmas swing of things – we’ve just been so busy with one thing and another, it seems to have arrived all of a sudden, anyone else feel the same way?
This year seems to have whizzed by, it’s hard to think that Christmas is almost upon us once again, how time does fly!
For the past few days Jason, Murphy and myself have been up in Suffolk visiting my parents, and having a little mini break, and my gosh have we needed it. It’s not until you stop and actually switch off you realise how tired you are and in need of a few good afternoon naps (which I’ve been sure to fit in!).
