So today I finally have a bit of time to process what has been my crazy life the last few weeks!! All good things though, but crazy!
So at the beginning of the year I was fortunate enough to go to Brazil for 3 months, it was incredible as you can imagine, the best experience of my life, it would take far too long to explain the things I saw, the beautiful people I met and the things I learnt. But I will say that a trip like that does make you reassess a lot of things. I knew when I got home that I couldn't go back to the way things had been and I needed some changes. It was a little frustrating for a while and it did make me feel restless, but I eventually narrowed it down to a change of job, that would be the ticket.
I love crafts, and I am passionate about them, and its funny but I never thought that I would be able to translate that into actually making a living. . . . but then in the last few weeks fantastic things have happened that has led to me now teaching crafts for 2 different company's in west London, which has meant I can leave my current day job to focus on this amazingness!! As you can imagine I am VERY excited! I start in September so I'm sure you will be hearing about it on here until you will shout 'no more about the classes jess please'!!
In honour of the news I wanted to share a few of my favourite D-I-Ys from the blog universe.
This beautiful bag from ticktockvintage is so cute and a amazing up-cycle, I love being able to recycle old things, especially textiles!
This PandaPin from A Common Thread is so cute! I love having something fun and small to knit to break up larger projects and this perfect :)
I know that Rachel from Smile and Wave made this Shot To Heart Arrow Garland for her daughters nursery but I cant resist the colours and fun of it, I want one for my room!
Last but not least is Aimee from Swellmayde. I love all of Aimees creations so please go and have a look at her gallery, so many beautiful things to make and be inspired by :)
With all of that loveliness I leave you now to go and drink tea and try and clean my room to a liveable state again!!
