Yesterday I spent the day crafting and enjoying some down time. It was a delightful treat and a real pleasure to sit and make. After having had a very busy week at work I felt that I wanted to put my effort into things that I love and make progress on my own personal projects. After pootling around the garden and greenhouse checking out how everything is growing, hanging out the washing to dry, I settled down to a day of craft projects. It felt like a perfect day doing the things I love.
Firstly I spent the morning printing out the photos I’ve taken during August so far and caught up on memory keeping for the month using my Project Life album and my stash of Studio Calico Project Life kits. I love this project and when I make the time to sit and document it enables me to see how very rich my life is. I find it a really important exercise in gaining perspective and appreciating the small and simple things in life.
