It’s the weekend, time to sparkle and shine
.
Apparently cleaning is where it’s at these days, so I‘ve ventured to the next aisle in the supermarket – the packaging is fab there!
.
Have a great weekend xxx

Finding inspiration

posted in: Instagram | 0

Day 4 of #positivelyinspiring15 is inspiration – here’s how I find mine.
.
A funny story (although perhaps only because the ending wasn’t too disaterous) when I was working at the make space in Bristol museum in July, I thought it would be nice to take some unframed pieces so that people could have a good look and see the back of pieces, which often seems to be quite interesting … anyway, a lady walked in to the room and plonked her red handbag and water bottle right on top of the original of this picture 😱😱…she clearly didn’t find it very inspiring 🤣
.
If you find it more inspiring than the bag lady (as we’ll now call her … serves her right for being rude 😂) , cards are available on my website, etsy shop and from @hollyandcoworkshop and A4 prints are also available in my shop .

To do list

posted in: Instagram | 0

A little list of things for you to do this morning – it’s small but important! .
I don’t know about you, but I’m still catching up from the school holidays – I’m almost there now, but I often underestimate how long everything will take me … and how many hours I have in the day. It can be a bit disheartening looking at an ever-growing list of things to do, especially if you feel like you’re not reaching the things you really want to get to (which is usually when our good old friend comparison steps in to notice that everyone else seems to be managing it, and you’re getting left behind) but what’s a list without a few fun things added in? A few things that you can cross off straight away (because I know I can’t be the only one who does that!) some really important things, like remembering how amazing you are.

Happy Wednesday everyone xxx

Create August – work in progress

posted in: Instagram | 0

Not the best of camera angles (sorry!) but here’s a bit of free motion embroidery for your Friday afternoon. On Wednesday I asked what colour everyone associated with the word amazing over on stories ….I had replies for every colour of the rainbow, but golden was most popular, so that’s what I’ve done – thank you! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on… hopefully it won’t be too long now. .
Have an amazing weekend x
