Slow Living Sunday: Sunshine & Serenity

sundayapril2nd

It’s a beautiful and sunny Sunday evening here in Bridport today. Alan and I had a nice long lie in followed by him making us cinnamon rolls! They were so good! It was his first time making them too and they turned out fantastic! We had to run some errands earlier so after having breakfast we went into town to get a few things and enjoy the sunshine. It is lovely to be out and taking all the signs of Spring in. I had a few things I wanted to do when we got home, making a nice loaf of bread being one of them!

Back in January we moved into our own place but we still have a few things over at Alan’s parents’ place so while I got busy making my Bara Soda Carawe (that’s Welsh for Caraway Soda Bread), Alan went to go get some of our books to add to our bookcase which had been sitting in the hallway not getting much use other than as a catch-all of sorts. We cleared it out last weekend and now it is finally starting to look like a proper bookcase and soon I will have the hallway clear of all the excess clutter.

So, today has really been more about slow living, trying to just take at least a day to enjoy life without all the major distractions from the everyday. Alan made a lovely chili con carne while I baked and we had a late lunch followed by a nice nap (sunshine and a hearty meal will do that to you). Now I am up, writing to you all after having finished a few designs and test prints to upload some new stuff to the Etsy shop and Alan is making scones for supper! Couple that with a gorgeous evening of sunshine and a leisurely viewing of Vera on ITV in about 40 minutes and we are ready to end this relaxing day to start a new and vibrant week ahead. How was your Sunday?

Delightful Developments… #stationery #design and more…

DesignPost

It has been a big dream of mine for about the past 5 years to become my own boss and design my own brand of stationery papers, postcards, stickers, labels and things and I am now FINALLY working on making that dream come true. So, as a bit of a preview, I wanted to show a little of what I’ve been working on—a sneak peek if you will.

Above are the corners of some of the letter sets I’ve been working on and developing, some digital manipulations and some hand-drawn designs are included. Below , circle punches with a twist. More to come about that later one.
