I decided to close the business for a few weeks to get my head together and have a bit of time to myself before I went on my holidays.
But pleased to say, I'm back as normal so here's my handmade monday blog!
So where to start...
It'd been a long time coming but me and King Neil finally went on a proper holiday abroad and with our best friends and godchildren too. We went to a lovely place called Sisi in Crete where it was 33 - 39 degrees every day.
When we got to our hotel, they'd put the 6 of us into a family suite on 2 floors. The terrace was beautiful and had this gorgeous view from one side and a view of the sea from the other. This is me and Neil on our second night before we went for our evening meal. When we got back to the room and the girls were asleep, we'd spent many a night lying back looking at all the stars in the sky. It's amazing how much more you can see without all of the street lights!
The sun beach in Malia. We had a day trip here and it was just beautiful. The sea was wonderfully refreshing after an hour or so sunbathing. And there were lots of little fishes in the shallow rock pools.
Spinalonga from the boat. If you haven't heard of Spinalonga it's a tiny island that was used as a leper colony from 1903 - 1957. Very humbling place and worth reading up on.
Me in my big floppy hat, which proved very useful for reading in the sunshine!
So back from my holibobs and I'd like to say I'm feeling all refreshed but after nearly a week of being back at home, Crete feels like a life time away! Roll on November when we have our long weekend in Snowdonia!
I think one of the reasons I got a bit disheartened with the business was because I wasn't doing anything new and exciting, I didn't feel I had anything to network about.
So I've had a nosey online for some inspiration and have a few new things in the pipeline which I'll hopefully be able to show you in the coming weeks.
Here's a sneak peak of my shopping list:
- Cath kidston napkins
- Empty stella cidre bottles
- Fabric samples
- Ric rac
This is another thing I just lost all motivation for. I'm not into these liking ladders and tagging sessions as I don't think people end up looking at your page they just like it for likings sake. However, I know I need to get back on top of it, so first thing I'm going to be doing is sharing a link to this blog!
And that's it really. I'm always open to suggestions on what you want to see on the blog,
on my facebook page www.facebook.com/Jeeberella
and on the website http://jeeberellascraftcastle.weebly.com/ (which I will be updating over the next couple of weeks).
Hope you all have a good week, happy crafting
