In a way this is my last "proper" weekend. My last day at work is Wednesday, then I have just under 2 weeks 'til I fly to Canada. I have no idea what my weekends will look like after that, what kind of job I'll have, what my schedule will be like, what my, well, life will be like. It's pretty bloody exciting!
In last weekend style I had to see the return of the Starbucks hangout. I've been too busy to keep it up as a weekly ritual unfortunately.
I'm going to start off with something about ME! A few weeks ago the lovely Emma from The Gift Shed came to visit me & Milo and raid my studio, she snagged some of my favourite things (I could sob for my Gocco & typewriter but needs must) but I'm pleased they've gone to a loving home. Anyway, she posted about it here. You also need to check out her Etsy shop, I just picked up two of her Beatrix Potter notebooks and they are absolutely delightful, I really want more but I should have even bought these!
I'm kind of addicted to motivation. That's a weird statement, huh? I don't know what it is, I love to pin motivational pictures, I have jewellery with various motivational words on, I google for Eleanor Roosevelt quotes all the time (some of her quotes are wonderful), for a while I collected 'life guide' type books, I don't always take heed but I love seeking out this stuff. Someone I gain a lot of motivation from is Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows, the lady responsible for bringing green monster smoothies into my life. And this week she's doubled the dose of motivation by writing about the Oprah Lifeclass she attended.
Karen from Did You Make That? cracks me up, her crochaliser is totally inspired and I'll be kind of sad when she's finished all her granny squares (sorry Karen) and the crochaliser will be no more. Click the image below to go to her blog and watch her latest update.
I loved this post from Moorea Seal this week, talk about speaking from the heart. It's a pretty important thing to remember, but we all manage to forget it.
It's a blast from the past today. I've been sorting out my studio (read: making a massive mess and not actually getting rid of much), and found this little scraper foil in a drawer. I used to do these all the time as a kid, it's fun to revisit childhood crafts!
