♥ Odds & Ends ♥

Framing some pressed flowers I picked in North Wales.
Making an "inspiration" wall in my craft room, with pretty imagery/ knick knacks.
Buying lots of crafty embellishments.
A bit of painting.
A couple of books I couldn't not buy, because of their lovely covers. I kinda want to frame them!
I've been feeling a bit under the weather recently, & haven't really wanted to blog or do anything, but I'm trying to push myself out of that. Thought I'd take some photos of pretty things I've been doing or collecting to cheer myself up. I have a habit of just spending money & buying myself things to make myself happy & I've gone a bit overboard recently, trying to help my low mood, but it hasn't really helped much (hello overdraft!) & instead I feel guilty. Now attempting a shopping ban (after all, I don't really need anything, & especially not when I can think of at least 7 things in  my wardrobe I haven't even worn yet). I'm going to focus on creating, or recycling, rather than buying. Who knows, maybe I'll even get round to making all those clothes I've been planning for ages!

  6. Georgina, your own blog posts produce happiness and joy (at least, to me). You have amazing looks ranging from cute and imaginative material to a lot of happy and lighthearted material. If it makes you feel any better, my days are happier knowing I visit this blog and gauge your wonderful style. So I hope things get better for you and that you feel better. Take care of yourself, Georgina.

  7. I totally understand, I often buy things because of my bad mood and regret it later... And during sales, the temptation is so huge. T___T

  11. I don't mean to pry, but seeing as you brought money up, do you have a day job or are you able to make a living from blogging and your craft website? I would love to reduce my hours at work and be able to make some money on being creative but I'm scared!

  13. I know how you feel, buying can be such a rush! And it can make you happy. However there are those times when it is short lived, and than you feel so bad for buying it... I hate that! Well, I hope you get out of your funk soon! Get better! :D
