It's been a while (surely I say this every time?!) and I think that's fine. Quality over quantity right?! Between moving to another country (which I'll post about soon!), unpacking and getting settled, there has not been loads of time for DIY and that does not sit well with me!! Hoping I can get back to it soon!
I've been thinking about which direction I want the blog to go, what to do next, what's the next step? I still don't have the answer, but I do know that I heart Monday is a good thing. Will it change to a weekly post? Stay 'biweekly'? A monthly favourites post? I'm not really sure, but I know the idea will stay!!
First things first-I found the most amazing challenge on Instagram the other day. It's called #LetterItOctober from @jennyhighsmith.
I. AM. LOVING. IT.
I've always wanted to work on my hand lettering and now that I've moved to England (and don't yet have a job) I've got some time to improve. The idea is that you have a different phrase, quote or saying to write every day. You can write in your loopiest calligraphy or simply use a pen. Join us and use the hashtag to see how other people have written the same thing.
Until we find our dream house, we are staying with family and trying to make it feel like home! I've got a new sewing machine, set up the spare room as a sewing room, and gathering my materials to open up shop again! Very excited to start making things again, and to see where this little business takes me!
In our new room between the hours of 13:00 and 17:00, the sunlight comes through the window and it is glorious. That is, when it's sunny. Ha! The past week has been great and I've been soaking it up like a cat. I'm all unpacked, but now thinking how I can make it a bit more 'ours'. I've got some things hung up but that's about as far as I've gotten. I love the big windows and the backyard is so pretty. I know this is just a stepping stone, but I just love anything decorating and DIY. It's amazing how much a room can change with a fresh coat of paint!!
The one good part of not having a job yet is that I can cook dinner all the time! I"ve made this a couple times for David and his mum and we really like it! It's quinoa, feta, cucumbers and tomatoes. Thats it! Such an easy meal if you don't have time and super healthy as well.
That's it for this I heart Monday! Like I said, I'm not sure where this blog is taking me, but I am super excited to see what I come up with!
Leave me some love,
