Creatively Speaking: Quick Update

There isn't much to report from the last two weeks to be honest.

I have been creative, I know I have I just don't remember in every little way that I was.

So the highlights are:

  • I finished reading VOICE: The Secret Power Of Great Writing by James Scott Bell.
  • I made some ribbon ties to hold back my voile curtains - not exactly rocket science I know
  • I did some colouring in my mandala adult colouring book
  • I resized a t-shirt - as you can see in the photo below - the red t-shirt is the one I resized and it ended up being the size of the purple shirt I have laid on top of the red one. It actually went pretty well - the sewing machine behaved itself for a change and even the 'easing' in of the sleeves went without mishap (I hate trying to 'ease' in the sleeves in sewing projects!).
  •  I've also been trying out some ideas for storing different things - however as I have not quite completed those little projects I won't give you all the details just yet.
So til next time...

Creatively Speaking: The Sun Came Out!

Over the last week or so I've been feeling more productive (not just creatively but in general) and I can't help but feel that it's because the sun came out a bit more this week. Yes in the UK the sun has been out!

So it won't be too difficult to test that theory as, being the UK, the sun will inevitably leave us for a while -  so if my productivity falls when it does go the theory will be confirmed (and I'll have to get myself some UV lamps... or move to a sunnier country... or something).

But anyway recently I've made a birthday card and continued making notes for various writing projects.

I've also started reading another 'writing' book. This one is VOICE: The Secret Power Of Great Writing by James Scott Bell.

I've read writing books by James Scott Bell before and really liked them so I thought I'd give this one a go.

And, speaking of writing, and my last Creatively Speaking post, I'm still not particularly closer to deciding whether or not to take part in Camp NaNoWriMo in April.


So despite the increased productivity this week, this is only a short post.

So til next time...
