Thought I'd do this the other way round this week - to prove that I do still craft it's just few and far between, biggest frustration is when you sit down to craft and then your mind goes blank grrr - anyway more 12 x 12 layouts!
This one is from a visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park during the summer, I love the colours and the combinations in the picture.
I also used a piece of chipboard covered in paper, with a little wire and bead assembly as an embellishment - I did this an age ago and never found anything it would 'go with' until I did this layout!
I seem to be going through an autumnal phase on the layout fronts at the moment
So you see I do still scrapbook! Just not as often as I would have liked!
Anyway on with the gratefuls
My hubby - rocking my world as always - just for being him!
Love you hun!
Chats with my Mum and sister and niece, even if we didn't manage any crafting - Melanie was late - there's a surprise LOL and so it was tea and chatting only.
Books, I'm loving the reading books at the moment - pure escapism, I'd lost them for a while but this year have re-captured my love of fiction.
I'm grateful for on-line buying, as Christmas presents start to tumble through the door I start to feel a little (and it is only a little) calmer.
Sensible eating with no stress - being a true Virgoan I have to do everything to the letter and if I don't then that always equals failure- I know that's not failure but it's just the way I am - so I tend to do all or nothing - to extremes - always - this week I've just tried to be sensible - I've not counted or written or listed or checked on or anything - just a 'normal' weeks eating - whatever that is - so here's to trying to break the genetic makeup and just going with the flow!
So there we are my grateful list for the week - last week we had one person join in - I know we're all busy with Christmas but the Friday morning grateful post always leaves me feeling positive even when madness is all around - biggest grateful I'm alive, I'm here, I'm breathing, I have a loving family, a roof over my head, a warm home - big gratefuls there!
The weekend ahead - well who knows - few items on the 'to do list' which I'm trying not to actually write down (as I always make them huge and then obsess about getting them completed - regardless of everything else) - last time I did one of those the list was too long and I damaged my back - so the 'to do' list can only be in my head and given my amazing memory (not) is usually manageable!
Anyway I'm off for the day - link in the comments - Mr Linky being awkward this week - so leave the trails so I can come and visit!
Hope you are all having a fabulous friday!
