Back to work planning

Hi again, I’ve been meaning to add this week’s pages to the blog but it’s been a mad week of enrolling and trying to prepare for the first week of teaching.  This week’s pages were inspired by this journalling card:

So last week’s pages looked like this:

This week I’ve received some lovely happy mail from My Pretty Week after winning a competition on Facebook:

they were gratefully received after a hard week in work.  I recently bought the dashboard and dividers that are currently in my filofax from My Pretty Week’s Etsy shop here: My Pretty Week on Etsy

This week I’ve also signed up for an ‘At the End of my Pen’ workshop with Tangie Baxter (here) and the idea is you art journal for 21 days from 10th September so I’m looking forward to starting – i’ll try and post my pictures here as I think this’ll motivate me to actually do it each day.

Hope you’re all ok and having a good weekend so far.





August plans


So time seems to have disappeared and I don’t really know where to! I did spend some of the summer creating but not as much as I would have liked.  I’ve also been buying furniture for our house and basically getting it baby ready for whenever a little one arrives.  I made a few things for the nursery – a cloud mobile that I’ll try take some good photos of when it’s in situ and when the room has been decorated.  I’ve also been quite good at updating and decorating my planner.  I’ve had a filofax for years but only recently have I started decorating it so that I remain motivated to use it and look at it every single day.  Below are the photos from the past few weeks and my plan is to use this blog to record my weekly pages – I’m making it my priority to use this blog much more and to update at least weekly.

First post!


My name is Rose and I’ve been thinking about starting my own blog for a long time, but never  really knew what should I write about or where to start, and actually I still don’t! So, even with all of this indecision madness going on, I decide to give it a go.

I think the main reason for me to start writing this blog is to find a place where I can express myself, talk ab  out the things on my mind and things I like, but to be entirely honest – I’m not sure if I have something interesting enough to become a regular blogger.  I am really looking to kickstart my creativity, to gain some escape from the daily grind of work and life.

I’ve decided to start creating – I used to embroider loads a while ago, and I’ve gradually fallen out of the habit of stitching and I need to jump back into it.  I’ve set up an Etsy shop to try and motivate myself to create.  I plan to use my planner much more, and to decorate it to motivate myself to use it often.  I am planning on a summer of creativeness and hopefully the sun will make an appearance too.  I’m really hoping that by creating this blog, I will have somewhere to document my journey.

Hopefully, there’s much to come, and I’m sure this will be quite an interesting experience for me.  I’m sure I’ll end up learning a lot with it.
