Can you believe its already November! The second last month of the year! Christmas is only 8 weeks away! 8! How did that happen? I swear it was only January the other day!
We always say time goes so fast but the truth of the matter is time is always the same, its our lives that chop and change that we don’t notice how it goes. Especially since the last two years have been a blur, chaotic and often traumatising. We are yearning for a slower pace, and a more relaxing lifestyle and less commotion!
One thing that gives me peace is my crochet work. At night I will put on my favourite Netflix show and “watch it” between stitches. At the moment I am watching the Dynasty remake. Have you seen it? If you haven’t you really should, its amazing and full of drama of course, so many twists and turns. It also stars two of our Australian actors – Alan Dale from Neighbours who plays Joseph Anders and Madison Brown who plays Kirby Anders. How exciting is that! Two of our best Aussie imports acting along side Grant Show, yes that’s the one and only Melrose Place Grant Show and Vanessa Williams. I am nearly finished watching season 4 and am already hoping they are doing a season 5. No wonder I don’t notice time going by!
Art and craft has not only given me peace and but also a sense of achievement. I love it when I finish a project and often I will photograph it in its stages to see the progress. My work takes me on many adventures and through the years I have met so many interesting people and been involved in many amazing events. Recently one of my Newborn baby gift packs was selected for a charity event at a local school. I am beyond proud that money raised from raffle tickets will go to benefit the kids at the school and someone gets to enjoy a handmade product, something that is unique. Its something that truly means the world to me.
So if you are not sure what to buy for Christmas or you or someone in your family has a new baby, take a look in my online shop https://www.vickyshandcrafteddesigns.blog for gift ideas. I have limited packs available and starting today they will all be going on sale! I love buying handmade, I hope you do too!
Thank you again for reading my post and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Take it easy and doing something you enjoy doing.
