Reasons to be cheerful

This week I’m cheerful about…

Getting crafty. Had some fun this week beautifying making chestnut figures and a leaf collage with DD. After seeing this fab idea from The Gingerbread House I spent a small fortune in Hobbycraft too (eek) and made some felt leaves to hang up at the window in her playroom. There’s nothing like some creativity to grow a smile on this face. Really must make the effort to do this more often. (If you want some ideas for this, Red Ted Art is a great place to start. This lady is amazing. Seriously.)

Getting organised. Is this about getting organised? Really? No probably not. It’s about being crafty again isn’t it. Hmmmm…. Anyhoo, after that massive shop in Hobbycraft (eek again) I spent some lovely time tarting up my plain ‘ol Moleskine writers notebook with some craft paper and bits and pieces. Niiiice.

Feeback. I posted a  here this week and I’ve been blown away by the lovely feedback I’ve had from the webicle. Seriously, peeps, you’re a lovely lot. Thank you.

Right that’s me done. If you’ve got Reasons to be Cheerful this week, don’t forget to link ‘em and tweet ‘em with the #R2BC.  is guest hosting this week so pop over and say ‘hi’! Don’t forget that next week Mich is back running the show again so we’ll be back at her pad; .
