Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope you’re enjoying what this weekend has to offer. We’re going to enjoy staying home and being ‘low key’ because we can! Except for a planned grocery shop this morning. We recently got a car didn’t we? So now we can venture a little further away for our groceries. So just before lockdown a FAB new supermarket called ‘Wegmans’ opened in Brooklyn. It’s about a 15 minute drive from us. Perfect!
We’ve only been once, but have been talking about it hungrily ever since. And it’s finally time to return. The fridge is embarrassingly empty!! But other than that little flash of excitement (I know, riveting innit?) we’ll be sticking close to base.
We’ve both agreed that we feel a little exhausted this week. Not physically, but just mentally fatigued. And so it’s time to switch off for a few days, and just be. I have a feeling the puzzle board might make an appearance too.
If only 21 year old Grace could see me now, sitting behind a puzzle board at home on a Friday AND Saturday night… she’d be shocked. Possibly even appalled. But 21 year old Grace doesn’t know what’s good for her does she?! hahaha.
Anyway, moving swiftly on… I tried to pick only 5 or 6 cards this week (since 27 last week almost did me in!) but it’s reeeally HARD because there’s sooo many epic ones!
So I picked 10. That’ll do donkey, that’ll do.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if I share your work. It’s all about YOU sharing your work. The more you do it, the more you’re building confidence. I can’t tell you how nervous I was about writing blogs in January.
Mum: I think it’d be cool if you started writing blogs too…
Grace: What? Like… to people?
Mum: Yes! Clarity blogs. A bit of craft, a bit of personality. Just be you.
Grace: *ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED*
And here we are, 8/9 months later… and I’m certainly not terrified or nervous anymore at all. It’s just part of what I do now, 3 times a week! Sometimes more. It doesn’t phase me (anymore). I’m just chatting to my friends now. How things change eh?
So keep sharing your work! What might not be your favourite work of yours, might inspire someone else. It’s all about the big picture! Now, check out these beautiful pictures…
STUNNING! Absolutely stunning. I hope you enjoy seeing these shared online as much as I do.
Right, I’m off to do a puzzle.
Lotsa love, Grace xo
