FMS Photo a Day – Week 1

Photo a Day - Week 1

I’ve often seen people doing photo diaries or photo challenges and I’ve wanted to have a go. So I finally decided to commit to doing it and have been taking part in Fat Mum Slim Photo a Day for October. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll have seen the pics, but if not, here’s a round up of week 1.

Photo a Day - Week 1

I’ve really enjoyed doing it – finding different things to take pictures of that fit in to the category chosen over on the blog. It’s also been really interesting seeing how people who follow me on Instagram respond to the images. I think I’ve even gained followers, which is great!

Have you taken part? What has been your favourite day so far?

Scrapbooking :: January in the Garden

January in the Garden

A little while ago, @ThePRMummy tweeted & asked if anyone would be interested in trying out scrap booking. Always ready to have a go at a new craft, I said yes. A few weeks later I had a package arrive containing a scrapbook and all the materials I could ever need for some lovely scrap booking, as well as a magazine from Do Crafts Creativity.

It’s taken a while for me to think about what to scrapbook. Then I finally had some inspiration! Our garden is in a bit of a mess & needs a massive overhaul. This year is going to be the year that it gets the face lift. I wanted to document the different changes that it goes through but didn’t want another blog. So I thought that scrap booking would be the way to go.

Each month I will take pictures of the progress we are making in the garden & scrapbook them. Then I will share my scrap booking on here! So here goes…

January :: In the Garden

January’s page shows the overgrown & pretty much derelict nature of our garden at the moment. It shows some of the key areas that need changing e.g. the fence is broken & it needs to be repaired/replaced. I’ve also put some of the things I want to do, like plant sunflowers next to the shed and plant bulbs in the pots. First & foremost though, the garden needs weeding. Lots & lots of weeding! Better go & get started! x
