my creative space 'keeping up with social-media-play-alongs'
Are you joiner inner?? I love a good party, group & social-media-play-along, however, i pace myself as i actually find them a little bit of pressure. Is that weird, that social media i choose to play along with, is pressure to perform?? Sometimes a prompt on what to post keeps things fresh & lively, especially on the downward spiral to Christmas chaos, so i'm joining in two this month . . . wait a moment, it's November already??
My Creative Space '#amonthof' with this variety of crafty things to post about (on Instagram & their face book page, once my request to join has been accepted.)
1. a creative space . . . last year i picked up a buffet from the tip, sanded, painted, replaced knobs & backed it with Laura Ashley wall paper, to create the dream craft storage cupboard. Of course i've barely sewn in the past 12 months due to carpal tunnel syndrome & then successful surgery (but life got busy with my husband in Afghanistan & raising children properly) so i'm slowly getting back into my studio now . . . as i need to make some Christmas presents!! It's an inviting cupboard & showcases my favourite finds!!
As i get more confident with Instagram, i have decided to play along with FatMumSlim's #fmsphotoaday for November too.
1. something beginning with 'C' . . . could i resist 'chickens?' Of course not. Here are some roosters from the Farmer's Market, in all their glory!!
I was raised that "Halloween is an American thing" so we never tricked or treated, outside an organised party in Sydney, but it was clear on Australian social media last night, that PLENTY of families were tricking & treating up a storm in their neighbourhood. I do giggle when devout religious people get involved, Pagan festival anyone?? Actually, my English Mummy always referred to it as "All Hallow's Eve" as it is the eve of the Western Christian Feast. I prefer the pagan stories, Stone Henge style.
