The trouble with January is that I find it difficult to get motivated. I know it’s meant to be a time of girding the loins, setting forth and re-inventing the “new me” but to be honest, I find that the relentless autumn (which is what a UK winter really is) begins to pale… but at least the days are getting longer!
And I am quite excited about a find I made in one of our local craft shops… cute little canvas and easel sets. I’ve decided that they’ll make fantastic greeting cards – I’ve been so inspired by them that I even got round to making a five just today.
I’ve used acrylic paints and personalised them specifically. I love these – and challenge even the most art-averse person to mess up! They’re dinky enough not to demand too much skill or be overwhelming but not so small that they don’t make an impact.
Oh, and I updated the website… see, another thing ticked off the list (see http://www.vintagerevisited.co.uk and let me know what you think)… it’s like I’m taking January by storm!
