My, how these winter days pass by so quickly. With my trusty to do list in hand each morning (baby brain seems to be getting the better of my once organised thinking), I potter about, spending time on the essentials, embracing my inner domestic goddess, while still finding boxes waiting to be unpacked and books longing for a shelf to call home. I'm so grateful for this quiet time to create our home, to nest and prepare for the months ahead. It's the first time in my life I've ever been at home during the week and it's a time I am truly cherishing. It seems though, as the sun has set on the days this week, some of my more fanciful to do's haven't quite come to fruition. I've finally found my beloved sewing machine and can't wait to make a few new cushion covers from some lovely vintage fabric and I'm also longing to back into some wintery crochet creation for my little one (if only I could locate the project I started). Also on my crafty list, a few little DIYs for the nursery and some macrame pot holders for our back deck. In the meantime, while I enjoy the early morning winter sunshine, I meander through inspiring magazines and spend a few moments amongst the pages of my journal, embracing the beauty of the quiet everyday moments for just a little while longer.
I'd love to know what you've been making lately and what's been inspiring your creative world.
