Nice Things: A Guest Post, A Decision & Some Visitors


There's been some nice stuff happening here lately. Lots of sunshine (yay!), some icecream (yum!) and a few Nice Days Out that I can't wait to blog about and share with you guys - just gotta get those photos edited first (yawn).

Here's some other good stuff from the past couple of weeks...

... I wrote a guest post over at Oh My! Handmade Goodness all about my Nice Days Out - about how enjoyable they've been and how going on them has taught me the importance of scheduling some relaxation and exploration into my working weeks, no matter how long my To Do list might be.

... I'm "quoted" in this month's issue of Craftseller magazine, in an article about Social Media. I say "quoted" because the advice credited to me in the piece isn't actually something I said! Ah well, it's nice to have a mention anyway :)

 
 
 

... and I decided to delete most of my Pinterest boards. This doesn't immediately sound like it fits under the heading of "nice things" but after months of thinking that I "should" be using Pinterest but knowing in my heart that it was making me feel overwhelmed and stressed and a bit sad, it feels very nice to have finally made the decision to step back from it and spend my time and energy on things that suit me better.

I'll still be Pinning stuff like tutorials and guest posts from my blog (so if you follow my projects there you can continue to do so) and updating my Nice Day Out boards (mapping the places I've been, because I love being able to do that!) but not much else.

Finally (last but by no means least in the niceness stakes) I've had a couple of lovely visitors...

... a pretty butterfly who landed on the sunny window next to me when I was working on a blog post...


... and a sweet deer who brightened up two Mondays in a row by paying us a visit!
