Been another busy week, and quiet stressy at times. We have a couple of issues on-going at the moment, one work issue and one family issue. Both seem to be taking up a lot of my time and causing a lot of stress and worry. I find that stress just seems to zap all my creative energy and I find it hard to concentrate on my crafty projects.
On Tuesday the work issue seemed to take up a large portion of my day so by teatime I was feeling very stressed indeed. I decided to sit down and do a jigsaw puzzle to take my mind off of things. I'm not a big jigsaw puzzler to be honest but there is something quite therapeutic about fitting those little pieces together. I only attempted a 250 piece kids puzzle but it did the trick and amazingly I felt less stressed afterwards. Here's is my kids map of the world...
I have had a good week searching in the charity shops, went out on Monday but didn't find a single thing to buy (always disappointing) but on Tuesday I found these lovely little finds..
A little green glass dish, perfect for buttons or bits
This very sweet little sauce boat, it has a little fuscia on it. I also got some old buttons to add to my tin.
I love this little glass jug, I don't know if its old or not but it has an art deco feel to it and it looks lovely along side all of my other jugs. I also found a hand made large glass bowl for £4, which although modern will be perfect as a salad bowl.
We made hearts, circles, bats, one witch, a couple of rabbits and an apple. Lets just say I have a lot of biscuit cutters!
On Friday I had to pop to the local music shop to buy Daisy some more recorder music. A few shops down from the music shop is a lovely little art shop which sell prints, does framing and sell lots of little handmade goodies. I managed to get these little ceramic buttons in there. Aren't they sweet?
Off for an early Mothers Day lunch today with my in-laws which will be nice. We are just going to a little tea shop which sell the most fantastic sandwiches and cakes. It is like taking a step back in time when you go through the door. My sister-in-law is coming also and she has eaten out on Thursday, Friday and is going out tonight too, this is why we have chosen the teashop for lunch as she only wants something light to eat!
