Afternoon lovely people, I hope I find you well and managing in these strange times. As it's Friday its time for
Ok, so the routine of home working is becoming just that, routine. I'm still managing to maintain the normal waking time routine and even get dressed for work and put my make up on ready for the working day and my days have got busier as we are immensely stretched at the moment as we continue to deliver to vulnerable people at work. But the positive is that we are geared up to work from home and it has been a relatively quick and simple transition.
Other than work, I've really enjoyed home cooking meals at night, its always too easy when we are busy and out and about to sometimes manage to cook from scratch, but this enforced lock down has made me realise how much I enjoy cooking from scratch.
I know I shared this last week bu the photo was in poor light so I thought I'd reshare
Inside each box is a mini book with the same colour way measure 3 inch, 4 inch and 5 inch respectively
I really loved these papers, someone mentioned that they reminded them of fruit salad.
Hubby bought me a 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 stack of Vintage Lace papers by Crafters Companion for Christmas. They really are beautiful papers, maybe a little too pretty for my normal scrapbook style, but they make a beautiful mini book. I really loved the finished effect.
Folded out, I added lots of glossy accents to the flower elements
In fact I enjoyed making it so much, I made another one
Midweek change of papers and I created one using some 8 x 8 papers I'd bought an age ago that are Winnie the Pooh, I cut a couple of the paper elements out for the front cover
Again really pretty papers
And again, inspired by the first, I made a second
With lots of pull out tags and flaps
You can see the pocket element from above
I'm loving how the cactus in the window has just loved being in full sun, it's obviously treating it like a greenhouse.
Me and hubby also celebrated our 22 wedding anniversary last weekend, obviously we were home alone, but we still made the effort and had a three course candlelit dinner for two that we'd cooked from scratch.
Although there is no traditional 22nd wedding anniversary gift, there is a modern one which is copper, fortunately for hubby he was on with making me some earrings anyway so I got a gift from him as you can see.
The rest of the week has been good other gratefuls are
The weather - the blue skies and sun shining makes a real difference if I'm honest, even if it is just grabbing a cuppa whilst we are working and getting 5 minutes to drink it outside.
11am coffee time (I said we'd got into a habit), me and hubby enjoying our coffee break at 11am.
All the creative crafting at home
A weekend of Shakespeare to look forward to, NT Live at home have put 12th Night on for the next week and the Handlebards have Macbeth of until Sunday night, so I'm hoping we can watch both of these.
Getting house jobs sorted and done, I honestly don't think we've ever got so many done. Yesterday whilst hubby was working I painted our bedroom including the ceiling. I've finished this morning glossiing the door frame and window cill and painting in the quote above our bed.
