How do you stay organised? I’d love to hear any of your tips.

Hello lovely people…it’s Christmas time!! I do love Christmas, the tree is up, presents bought (well most of them!), music enjoyed, Christmas baking has commenced and now I am really hoping we get some snow to enjoy…
My hubby has created this lovely festive Christmas wallpaper. If you would like a free download for your computer, just right click on the image 🙂 Also check out the speed art video….fascinating to see the artwork created.
What are your favorite Christmassy things?
Merry Christmas to you 🙂

I love creating stuff out of things found in nature; sticks, stones, pinecones, acorns, conkers…the list goes on.
And I also love pinterest, it can be incredibly addictive, I love to pin. I use pinterest mainly as a form of inspiration. I have loads of ideas i’d love to create but time is always an obsitacle. That and my incredibly dire organisational skills….
Most of what you see on the creation side of my blog is stuff that’s been buzzing around my head for a long while and finally sees its way to existence.
I’ve had these pictures pinned to one of my boards for ages. These inspired me to create ‘Our Pebble Family’
I collected a load of stones from the beach about a year ago and sorted them out while Penguin was busy creating his own stone art.
I’m not much of an illustrator, thankfully my husband is. He’d created these illustrations of our family during our #30DaysWild challenge. Now I can’t illustrate but I can copy!!! so I copied Leo’s illustrations onto these pebbles, splitting up the different sections of the bodies. I used a white acrylic paint for the background colour. I first did the outline in pencil and then used a really fine brush to paint on the black lines.
I used acrylic paint to colour the illustrations.
I wanted Penguin and Little Missy to be able to play with our pebble family without the paint coming off. I gave each pebble a couple of coats of a clear acrylic varnish. I was really pleased with the varnish, it gave the pebbles a shiny finish. Given the amount of knocks the pebbles have already had, it is very effective. I love toys and activities that aid imaginative play. ‘Our Pebble Family’ has been used a lot for role play and has certainly engaged the little munchkins when I’m needing some time to prepare dinner!
Do you use Pinterest as a form of inspiration? I’d love to link up with you and see what inspires you.
