What a day....

I thought it best to start the day tidying my work space (which had become a bit of a dumping ground during the start of the holidays) in order for me to get the creative juices flowing again.
It took a little longer than I hoped as I spent time sitting on the floor looking through all sorts of papers and magazine cuttings.

I then started embellishing the clasp purse I knitted up a while ago.
.......yet to be sewn up!
I finished making up some broaches just waiting for the backs now.
My designs started to evolve a little.

Thought I would share the bathroom makeover with you,

Some folks may like deep terracotta I have moaned and groaned about the deep shade which graced our bathrooms walls for the three and a half years we have lived here. I just do not like it. I find it too deep...... especially in the bathroom....... I think you get the idea anyway. So for prosperity I grabbed my camera and recorded the final terracotta moments. The bathroom suite is peach and just looked really dark against the terracotta walls with GOLD stencilling........yack yack yack GOLD glitzy ......balurggghhh, Only for the Christmas tree please.
It is now a tranquil and calming 'Blossom White' hurrah. I am very sad and keep popping my head around the door to have a look.
I love the simplicity of White gloss with a few little pretties to make the bathroom a welcoming place. Its a good job Mr H is quite easy going. I know some men would not take too kindly to pretties everywhere I am VERY lucky and count my chickens. I even painted up an old stool which was being skipped as it was formerly in the art department at school.

Anyway after whiling away the hours making I became rather unsettled and felt all well sort of grrrrrr inside and didn't know what to do with myself. So I decided to make some cupcakes.
Using a special ingredient.

I mixed in a spoonful of LOVE.

They taste yum sorry no after pictures.

I hope your Monday wass not so GRRRRR.
