FMS Photo a day {January 2016}

In 2016, I am once again attempting to complete some photo a day challenges. My favourite is the Fat Mum Slim version. Monthly challenges, great community to share along with, with helps with the inspiration and enthusiasm for continuing.

The goal for me always is to do it for a year, 12 monthly challenges, 365 days (or 366 this year). I’ve never made it, so each year I make my plans light-heartedly.

I’ve started the year off on a positive note, with a nice light and bright feel. I feel my photography style has morphed more recently into lighter, simpler images.

Here is January’s list. I will be posting my images daily on Instagram and Facebook and weekly here on this post for the whole month. Why don’t you join in?!

Silicone bead jewellery

Before Harry arrived, someone bought me a silicone teething necklace. Something I could wear, but baby Harry could chew on. I wore it to work one day (Harry wasn’t even there, lol), and got so many compliments, and no one new it was a mummy-baby-teething necklace.

Then I had this idea, that I wanted another one, in black. A bit of a corporate wardrobe staple, so I ordered some black beads, and some more black beads, then some red ones. I made myself three necklaces, wore them to work, received more compliments.

I have a number of work colleagues going on maternity leave- what a great gift idea! Necklaces, teething rings – So you guessed it, I bought more beads and next thing you know, I have enough to open a store, almost.

No, I’m not about to go into business selling silicone bead jewellery, but I do have so much more than I need. So to recoup some of the money I invested, I’m going to sell my excess.

These necklaces will be listed on my Facebook page at very cheap prices. There will be more in the new year (I still have beads left).

Planner Hack A5 weekly pad {Free download}

I am always changing the layout of my inserts in my Filofax. This month is no exception. My layouts are usually based around a weekly view (my life not busy enough to warrant a daylight view, lol)

I’ve tried horizontal layouts, and vertical. One of my favorites, was always a horizontal page with a notes page. (I sell this layout in my Etsy store)

This week, I’ve merged some pretty Typo to-do lists with a simple weekly layout. Just took the pages off the pad – printed on the back, punched and now I have a beautiful weekly spread, that won’t need to much decoration.

So here’s my A5 weekly Planner Hack as a free download!

Want to give it a go?

1. Get a pretty A5 notepad. I used the Typo ‘Things to do’ also Kikki K have some very pretty choices.

2. Download the blank (undated) A5 page here for free! Or if you want to try this for the last few months the of the year, here is a dated version (Oct- Dec 2015)

3. Peel off some of the pages from your notepad and load them into your printer – be careful to load them correctly  so you print on the back of the pages.

4. Hole punch to fit your planner

5. Stay organized!

Mel - That’s genius! I have so so many of those A5 notepads from Typo and Kikki.K too – now I have an excuse to use them :)

Time to share {Watercolour Art}

I want to share something with my little audience.

 

While I was on maternity leave, I was working on some art.

These pieces are digital watercolour, with gold/silver foil detail. They combine the soft textures of the watercolour contrasting with the hard edge of the circle.  Some are inspired by the ocean, others are more abstract, inspired by colour combinations.

Self-doubt, prevented me sharing these until now. I’d love your feedback.

After some confidence boosting feedback from my closest friends, I now have plans to sell some of these as prints, small and large fine art prints and on greeting cards. I’m planning on attending some small markets with these, I’ll have a little web store and hoping to find some boutique gift/homewares stores that might like to sell these.
