Started off ok except for a visit to the Dentist. The weather was bad out side just hope I didn’t get my hair wet after spending time straightening it was getting very long.and needed cutting. Thought I was going to be late as stopped chatting with micks sister but you can’t be rude. I knew what the dentist was going to say just hoped he would do it now ! Tooth needs coming out Julie very forward useing my first name like we was best friends. Every time I go to the Dentist they have changed I tell a lie managed to see the last lady dentist twice. I don’t think the dentist is any ones favourite the receptionists very nice chatty but she’s the only familiar face. She must hate her job but she’s good let’s hope she’s sticking around.
Weather was still bad but thought I better call on my Dad on the way home gave him a quick text (Are you in Dad) no answer so thought I would call any way. He was in and we chatted about the dentist and things he normally looks like he wants to go to sleep think he likes to take a nap in the afternoon well at 85 so he should. Time was getting on and my stomach was rumbling as I hadn’t eaten so thought I better head home this was 2pm and no sewing done.
I had called at the shops before dads to buy something for tea we are trying to eat healthier but only managed get a few items. Never carry that much money in my purse. Needed Some potatoes lady was very nice said to take them and give me the money when I was passing. I couldn’t do that I would probably forget and then feel guilty. Called at the bank and got some money and went back.
Also called at the hairdressers thought I would kill two birds with one stone having my hair cut. But hairdressers don’t work on Mondays so wasn’t any one available just give me a dry cut. My hairs down to my waist and as I’m going away in a few weeks it’s time for a cut before we go. The beautician was in and if I had stood there any longer deciding what day and time come back she’d have cut it her self. But I really need to get some work done left without making a decision.
Well I made it home felt worn out and hungry so I made a couple of potatoe cakes that I didn’t enjoy. My tooth still hurt me didn’t get anything done. And the weather was still mizz. To top it all have to go back Wednesday and do it all again when the nice dentist takes my tooth out arhhhhhhhhh.
You get all the painting and wallpapering done and can’t wait to do the assesories and matching up of the new decoration ! That’s the best bit.
When I did my diy in my house went searching for things to match. Blue and white items that would fit in with my theme not knowing what I would find. I was on a budget so where could I find things ? I love old things so perhaps antique shops but found these a little pricey so next best place was the charity shops. Took me a while but on a visit to Windermere found some lovely jugs and had to buy them perfect.
This was the start Had a couple of items glass candle sticks and lamp just had to get white candles and a new shade for the lamp.
Blue and white cushion covers from IKEA bringing a different blue into the mix . Navy curtains with stars matching the wall paper . Also found other jugs and vases and had my great idea to do my doodle pictures and decoupage some small tables spoke about these in preveous blogs.
As I make sock monkeys I add to make a blue and white monkey to match my doodle picture still have a fascination for the blue and white theme. Great idea for a bedroom did a little collage of ideas with my monkey. I came up with this idea when taking photos hope to do a blog on how I take photos and the apps I use to make my pictures.
I can draw and paint but love doing what I call my doodles quick little drawing.
I first started drawing these when I found a fantastic app called drawingdesk app on my iPad. I love it often draw just with my finger.
Any one can use it ! Kids to grandads my grandson joe loves it and just got my dad drawing on it ! You can make shades of different colours,Write , colour and it’s free you can get extras if you want to up to you.
Great if you have had a stressful day after work scribble your stress away ! I have drawn in the past and painted a few pictures but this takes it to another level digital drawing love it.
I often do doodles of my sock monkeys not perfect but they are so much fun to do. Combining with other apps you can make some great pictures . You can find my doodle over on my Instagram or Facebook page.
I have been doing a lot of DIY in the house and came up with the idea to do some doodle art In frames for my wall to match my deco wrote about this on another blog. Link below.
So now I want to make pictures to sell bit of work to get it right so I put one of my doodle monkeys in a frame and put it on my Folksy shop just to see if get any interest so we will see.
