I feel like I need to apologise for the lack of DIY's since the beginning of March, everything has been such a whirlwind I haven't had a chance to sit at my making table and actually create. That's not to say I have been resting on my laurels, far from it! Trying to manage a full-time (non blog related) job, home renovations, plus blogging and doing general life things keeps me more than busy. When people say they don't have time to be creative I never really believe them, there is always five minutes spare that can be used creatively - even putting a few flowers in a vase is a creative process if you let it.
I thought I'd share a couple of little creative bits that I have been up to recently, that don't require loads of time.
A cheat's birthday cake - Making a birthday cake for my mum was a last minute thing, instead I bought a pudding from Cook and decorated with fresh fruit, it took me five minutes and looked really fancy!
Modern Calligraphy Practice - Taking a Quill, Modern Calligraphy Workshop has been one of my best things I've done this year but lack of practice time has left me a little frustrated. Another DIY for my mum's birthday, I hand lettered the details of the trip we booked for her. It's definitely not at a professional standard but meant I got some practice in.
Gardening - Sorting our garden has become an obsession for Dan and I, our greenhouse and soon to be vegetable patches are looking pretty amazing. Every night when I get home, I do a lap of the garden to see what's growing and loving tend to my seedlings. I always thought growing plants and flowers was such a arduous task - it's so rewarding and teaches even the most impatient of us (me) to slow down and let nature do it's thing.
I guess there's one big DIY that's going on behind the scenes...I'm having a baby! I'm rather superstitious about putting too much on the internet in case something happens. I promise it won't turn too baby-fied on here but I'm looking forward to maternity leave and discovering new crafty avenues!
