Thought I would cheer myself up and went on the hour long bus journey to our nearest Hobbycraft. That was fun in all fairness. I ended up spending a small fortune. Got some funky beads I've been looking at for months which I've already started working with. Some more felt. Can never have enough felt. Magazines - just because they are a bus journey staple and done.
I then thought I would be sensible. I have managed to rip two pairs of jeans in the space of two weeks. Do you think I can find a standard pair of black, boot leg, long length, no frills jeans anywhere? Like hell I can. Disappointment there.
Cleaned out the kitchen cupboards when I got home only to be completely surprised at how much crap I had stashed in there that had gone off. Naughty me.
So I finally decided I needed a break from it all. The cleaning can wait until tomorrow and the blogging can be the stress release :)
Most of my makes recently have been small items - mainly supply and demand in all fairness. So whilst today I am indulging in something more extravagant I am yet to have the pictures to show for it. That comes tomorrow after I attempt to at least try and clean the house a bit. Not only that I need to get my butt into gear and get my pics uploaded for the CRAFTfest event.
Memo to self: maybe total self employment is not your calling. You at least need to be partially organised.
However here are a few of my newer items just so this isn't a picture-less post.
Just to end this post on a random note:
I am currently trying to gut the house of all the rubbish I don't need. Have you every noticed some weeks you never have a full bin and the weeks you really need more space the dustbin men are always a day late.
