Thankful for inspiring people!

This morning started and I was tired and very unmotivated. One email from a LOVEly friend and I was back on track, the to-do list got done and I did a layout and a page in my art journal!!! THANK YOU Julie ;)

So that to-do list... That was a trip to the post office but to do that I had to complete the mini book I made my sister, put together a gift for my Happy mail buddy and a belated birthday present for our nephew whose birthday was on Monday. So I completed those tasks and after morning tea we went to the post office, job done! Next was the fruit shop, job done. Called in to a local scrap store and bought some cardstock, naughty but necessary ;) Then home with a completed to-do list!!

Amongst all that I had started a new page in my art journal, paint dried while we were away so by the time we got home I could do the last bit of painting before finishing this

Then through the day I created a layout, it was meant to be about how when Dave finishes work for the day he will ring to say he's on his way home and I will put the jug on and make a coffee which is ready by the time he gets home so we can have a coffee together... well I started journaling and it didn't end up being about that at all lol

And I will leave you with these 2 photos, I love that even though we live in suburbia we still get to see the bird life :)
