It always pays to wait

These bottles of ink are pretty in themselves because of the lovely designs on the labels

I like them not only because of the way the look, but because I get excited about all the things I can write and draw with them.

The same goes with this colourful twine. I can't wait to use it on parcels

And now I have to leave....there is this homemade bread waiting for me (well, the dough was made on the bread machine, but my lovely fiancee shaped there is an element of homemade in there)

The lovely thing about all these things on the photos is the expectation, the anticipation, the inner happiness of what there is to come. I sometimes like to stretch the waiting a little bit longer to make those warm feelings last.

Making changes

I bought a diary in Paperchase and decided I didn't like the cover after all. I was inspired by the Muji notebook and so I covered the ugly looking diary with parcel paper. I used some washi tape to ad some colour and finished it off by putting some adhesive plastic on top to protect it. I am happy with the result.

I made this colourful notebook a few months ago. I still haven't used it. Don't know what is for, other than to just be on the table.

I have been looking at lots of blogs on paper stuff and have been enjoying them a lot. I have a few ideas.
