How I will get my mojo back.

Thing a day is starting again! Registration opens on 24 January and I will be signing up. Last year I managed to post something every single day in February apart from one and it really kept me motivated so this year I hope it'll help me get my inspiration back. Are you signing up this year?



I thought I'd show you a Thing I made recently - a crochet garland. It was really for Christmas, and I made it with sparkly yarn from Lidl in gold and dark red, but I liked it so much that it's staying up all year! Also see the snow? It was much worse than this. I had five (!) days off work when I couldn't get out because of snow or ice.

And see my little bonsai on the windowsill? It doesn't have a lot of growth yet, but it's developed some new leaves since I got it. I've always been fascinated by bonsai and I just signed up for a day-long beginner class next month and I can't wait. Watch this space, I'm sure it'll be one of my Things next month because bonsai are definitely creative.

Thing a day looks really fun! That crochet garland is beautiful. And I can't wait to hear about the bonsai some more- I've always found bonsai interesting. I hope you post about the class! : )

Thanks for the link. I hadn't heard of Thing a Day before. I attempted Everyday in May but had to give up due to a huge project. Think I'll give this a try!

It was all over the news here what happened weatherwise to you all in London! I know I'm a bit late to comment, but things have been crazy. Good luck on your thing a day. I'm lucky if I have a thing done a week!
