So much to do, so little time.........

Here is a little burlap canvas that I made. The flowers were cut from a Sissix die using thin cork paper, I wound string around to make leaves and stems. The sentiment was cut using the Cricut Explore. I rather like the earthy natural look of this.......




 Frankly, I don't know whether I am coming or going at the moment,  and certainly haven't had much time to craft. After spending days and days house hunting, until we finally found one to fall in love with, we now seem to be on a treadmill of legal forms to fill in, and just as I think it's okay to get a bit messy in the house, along comes the surveyor. Now common sense tells me that he is not going to take marks away from this house just because a craft cupboard looks as though a hurricane has swept through the house, but the idiot side of me can't help but have yet another crazy tidying up session.

Add to this mix the fact that we go on holiday next Monday for eleven days and I have yet to pull out any summer clothes......I may well be swanning around on a cruise ship sailing around the Italian coast wearing black sacks. Where on earth did I put my flip flops?

So you may well have to make do with photos of Italian scenery and maybe a few observations that I am sure to make from the comfort of a deckchair after this week - I usually make all sorts of stuff to schedule posts whilst I am on holiday, but this year, I think I am going to hold up my hands and admit defeat on that score. Am I going to relax on holiday? I think not, my mind works pretty much like that of a dog chasing a rabbit - if I am fixated on everything I need to do at home, I will sit fretting, but at least I will be fretting in the sunshine with lovely scenery to look at!

  7. I hope you have a fantastic time on your holiday. Do try to relax. Perhaps a tablet in which to draw a few doodles or zentangles would help. :)

  9. You make me feel exhausted just reading what you do/have to do! Forget about blogging - I'm sure we'll all manage a couple of weeks without your wonderful inspiration - and have a good vacation :)

  10. Carry a notepad everywhere with you. Write down any 'moving' related thoughts so that you can deal with them when you get back. Most of all try really hard to relax because when you get back it will be all systems go!

  15. Its lovely Enfys! You sound so stressed so a holiday is definitely in order and if the worst comes to the worst you could dress up in some burlap!

  16. What a fun and creative canvas Enfys, The burlap and cork work together beautifully to make a very inspired and unique look, and with that lovely sentiment, it's sure to warm anyone's home.

    How wonderful that you are taking a bit of a Holiday, with the whirlwind of activity in your life recently, you are certainly due a nice relaxing time. Just keep telling yourself that there is no need to fret. Do what you can before you leave, and then shake off the rest and let it go. After all, whatever may need your attention while you're away, will still be waiting for you when you return. Having had the chance to relax and enjoy life for a few days will put you in a better frame of mind to tackle it when you return.

    Now off with you to find those sandles and suitable clothing for your cruise ... and ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY! Hugz, Carol X

  18. Solution.... leave the idiot side at home. Tell her if she doesn't behave she can't go, and you'll only bring her back a cheap key chain. Lol you've had way too much on your plate lately. It's time to delegate my friend. You aren't wonder woman! Lol well maybe just a bit... but busy is one thing, crazy is another. Well usually. Lol if anyone deserves a cruise it's you! Take care my friend.

  19. Chaos, chaos, chaos -- that's when women do their best! Yes, you will be fretting, but force yourself to relax every 2 min. and pretty soon the fretting will be every 2 min. instead - I know just what you go thru - that's why I have to take Ambien to sleep - LOL!

    Have a great vacation -

  20. I LOVE your burlap artwork! And for that mass frenzy/fretting thing? RELAX, it's okay to be a person who is enjoying your holiday! There will be enough to fret about when you get back, so just relax and have an awesome vacay.

  21. Lists, lists, lists. That will get you through any crisis. Once you write it down it's out of your worry thoughts. Have a wonderful vacation. Put up your feet and have a few adult beverages and those lists will disappear from your thoughts. Your burlap and cork sign gives out such a warm and fuzzy feeling.

  22. Oh Enfys, I do know what you're going through. We were selling our house and buying another last year at this time. I would tell you to relax, everything will be fine. BUT, I wouldn't have listened either. Just try to remember that it will all be finished at some point and you will live through it (I'm still hanging onto that thought). I wish you a happy and restful trip.

  27. Protein use in our body is simply huge and for a body builder, protein is as important as water, as the building blocks of muscles are protein! Vegetarian Muscle Rev Xtreme bodybuilders are more known to have lesser amounts of protein in their body as compared to the non-vegetarian body builders.All muscles are made up of protein, which unfortunately enough does not get stored in the body and the body does not tend to build up protein reserves. Thus proteins must be supplemented into the body and can be taken in the form of protein rich food, or as body builders prefer it, taking protein supplements also known as muscle builder supplements.A good gym can analyze your requirement based on your daily food intakeand suggest the correct muscle building supplement. http://rockhardfacts.com/muscle-rev-xtreme-scam/

  28. increasing the amount of jogging you do each week. You want your heart rate to stay at about 75% of its max, which is usually from 120 to 150 BPM. This, of course, depends on age. XtraSize Male Enhancement
