It's Wednesday and I'm in my favourite blogging spot, sitting on the bed with my laptop. I like the view from the window and the one I see beside me, my bedside table with its little collection of treasures. Here's one:
The lovely little cube Rinda made and gave to me when she visited in the summer. It's one of the first things I see in the morning and one of the last when I turn out the light. I like that. It reminds me of how much this hobby of ours continues to give me.
And it looks like I'm not the only one who feels like this. Thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in contributing to So this is Scrapbooking. It's all starting to take shape and it's going to be a good read. Starting soon! Maybe before December...did I just say that? December?
I'm definitely ready for it. The (Not So) Small One and I made Christmas Bark on Saturday. It's all gone. We ate the lot. Just a layer of milk chocolate, then a layer of white (which we tinted pale green and flavoured with peppermint) and then a sprinkle of crushed candy canes. Yum.
And I've started my shopping. I've found a cuddly Henry Hoover for Little E and - oh, no, I can't tell you about Uncle Dave's gift. It'll have to stay a surprise.
So, on to cards. Got a few ideas going for making my own. And because it's Wednesday, I'm going to let that lead to my Thinking Out Loud thought for the day. I thought it would be a good subject for debate because I'm guessing opinion is going to be strongly divided on this one. In fact, you don't even have to be a Pinterest fan to have a view on this one....if you pin, do you have a board of things you have made? do you pin from your own blog? Yesterday, I was making a start on a board of card inspiration and it suddenly made sense. For cards, at least: if I added my own favourite designs, then I'd have the patterns together where they were easy to find. Maybe one of the new secret boards would work for this? Mmm..secret boards: another question altogether, maybe/ what do you think? any musings for a Wednesday?
I'll be back on Friday at 6.00pm because I'm taking part in the Frosty Festivities Blog Hop. You can find out more about it at Jennifer's Jumbles here - there'll be prizes!
Oh, and a quote from my mother to finish with? Take your coat. It's cold out there..
