The title of my post today reflects the following picture of Jazz:
Daisy prefers to wait for the temperature to be in the high double figures before she spends a lot of time outside. She doesn't like to get her paws cold and very sensibly stays inside in the warm - preferably draped along a window sill with the radiator sending up lots of lovely warmth for her.
Back to my week. First of all a big thank you to Caroline Nash for her guest blog post on motivation - I hope every had the chance to read it and if you have any feedback about the post, please do let me know. Secondly, another thank you to my new Twitter and Blog followers - I love your company and I am looking forward to sharing Tweets and Blog Posts with you.
It's nearly 6 months since I gave up my 'day job' and I just love what I am able to do now. Yes, I miss pay-day (who doesn't) but the stress and heavy work load are things I don't miss. I work long hours on my business, but it is all for me, not for anyone else to take the credit for what I am doing or producing. Another thing about being my own boss is that I can have a social life in the week - something that didn't exist during term time as evenings were spent either teaching or marking the day's work or writing material for the next day's lessons.
Last week was busy and seems to have disappeared just a bit too quick - card-making, website 'doing' and everything else, as well as continuing with the massive de-clutter we are attempting. I say attempting, because we don't seem to be moving very fast. Oh well, it's been great fun looking at things and saying 'did we really like that enough to buy it?' and realising how much tastes change over the years.
Guess what? Yes, it's Handmade Monday (HM) again - where do the days go? My make is another one of the love decoupage items from Moonlight Bay. Sue has added some to be downloaded so no waiting for the postman. this one is called Deco Lady and I think will make a lovely topper for a Mother's Day card. I added some glitter to the headband, shoe and hem of the dress to make it sparkle. Don't forget to check in with the other HM bloggers - every week brings some beautiful work and good posts - some sad and some funny, but all very readable.
A request now for some guest bloggers please. When I first mentioned I was going to have a Friday guest blog spot a few lovely fellow bloggers said I would like to write about....................., but sadly I haven't heard anything more. Come on HM people, blog followers and Tweeters, the crafting community needs your words of wisdom. It's a good opportunity to get more followers and I am sure more business.
Have fun everyone - 'see' you on Wednesday
