Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Blogtober day 28 - Izzy, wizzy, let's get busy !

This morning started off wild and tempestuous and as the day went on it worsened! Not surprisingly we all managed to find work indoors.

We are prepping for our festive (gah) workshops coming up - they start next week. On the list of 'attractions' we are starting with two sessions of pebble painting, then I am leading three workshops making chrimbly tree decorations. 
The week after that kicks off three weeks of hosting festive wreath making sessions. In between that we are decorating the 'Coach House' (our place of work) building Santa's Grotto (twice) as well as creating items for sale for the Christmas Market.
So far we have wired seed pods and dried flowers, lightly sprayed foliage (dried) silver, red and gold, made willow wreaths for bases, stamped labels, cut ribbons and sorted out the workshop space.

Succulent and cacti planters have been made, wooden shelving and display units made and painted - all being prepped for our Christmas market.

We are still eight weeks away from a certain date and there is still so much to do!!!

All this activity is partly why I missed yesterday's post - I was so knackered when I came home I fell asleep on the settee πŸ™„πŸ˜„



  1. Sounds like you've got some busy weeks ahead, but it sounds like fun. Good luck with all of your projects!

  2. What a lovely sky, still too dark here to see a dratted thing outside 😟

    It is years (measured in decades!) since I have grown those everlasting flowers, forgot how pretty they are.

    1. Me too - only did it this year as was given a packet of seeds - however they were so successful and well received, I think I will do it again :)

  3. Busy you. I did wonder what happened to yesterday's post but now I know. Pan should have taken a photo of you asleep and posted it! x
