Two storm’s in as many weeks. What a great excuse to stay indoors and craft! Our garden fence is rather the worse for wear, having been weakened by Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis managed to finish it off on Sunday morning.
My attempts to be productive and organised are continuing and so far all is going well. As ususal I was busy last week week as usual and I have lots to look forward to this week.
I hope you’ve had a great weekend and that Monday is
treating you kindly so far! This week I have been so busy. I’ve had two days
with the Settlers this week aside from all the regular things I do each week. I
also feel like I have sent a million emails this week!
For the last few weeks I have been planning a “catch up day” in the diary once a week on a Thursday, and this week is the first week I have actually needed to use it. I’m glad that I’ve started allowing this extra time in the week as it means I don’t lose motivation if things come up and change my plans, I also don’t feel quite so out of control over what is happing on the blog!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. Once again last
Monday seems like so long ago! So far I seem to be doing quite well at planning
and being productive, long may it continue. I have to say, I do enjoy a good
plan. It gives me things to look forward to and I feel a lot more relaxed when
I know what I’m going to be dealing with. I also feel a greater sense of
achievement when I do the things that I planned to do, rather than just doing
things off the cuff. Strange but that’s just how it works for me.
As usual I have been here, there and everywhere; doing this that and the other. I can only assume that being here, you want to know more.
Is anyone else feeling exhausted today or is it just me? I have had a very busy week of meetings, social commitments, many many emails and diary organising. Then of course there was the first event of 2020 on Sunday. I am absolutely shattered! This week is looking a little more sedate, thank goodness! I’m looking forward to getting some crafting done and hoping for another productive week!
I have had a little bit of a strange week. Mr Crafts was supposed to be away in Salt Lake City for work until today, but he came home early as he was unwell! That meant I had to change some plans last minute to go and get him from the airport. It did however mean that I got to go to Woolly Workers on Friday, which was a little bonus!
I actually got quite a few things done this week, although it really doesn’t feel that way. I am hoping for a far more productive week this week. With that in mind I am going to get down to business and kick of the first post of the week!
I hope you
all had a wonderful Christmas! I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you
all a very happy 2020. I am super excited and motivated for this year with
George Crafts! I have promised myself to be more organized in the hopes that
this will bring more consistency to my content and I already have events booked
up for January and June this year!
I thought today I would do a little bit of a festive round up, instead of the traditional Craft Journal post. I have been so busy over the past few months preparing for Christmas, and a lot of those preparations have been crafty!
This comes to you a little later than planned, and this week
Mr Crafts has to take a little bit of the blame for this! A few weeks ago Mr
Crafts broke (another) car key, and he hadn’t managed to get a new one cut.
This morning I went food shopping and planned to go in to Timpson’s
to get the key re-cased while I did the shopping. Unfortunately Timpson was
closed for lunch so I had to get the key sorted after the shopping. The key
took another half an hour to get re-cased so I had to go back inside to the café
for a hot chocolate and a read of a magazine.
Anyway Mr Crafts has now gone Christmas shopping, with his new car key so I want to make the most of the peace and quiet and get some crochet done, so I had best get on!
I hope you are all well into your Christmas preparations by
now. This last week has been Christmas chaos! The majority of the week was
spent getting ready for the Christmas Lights Switch on in town (big success). I
feel well and truly in the Christmas mood. There are more fairs to go to, more
jumpers to make and more festivities to plan!
That must mean I have to get on with this blog post!
This week we have a little bit of a craft journal with a
difference. The second half of last week was a little quiet on the blog and our
social media platforms. This is mostly because I had lots of real life things
to do (I know, how disappointing) as well as trying to make a hole in my
In the theme of having lots to do, I best get on with writing!
