Hello hello! Grace here.
I hope you’re having a lovely weekend! Getting crafty? Seeing family? Running errands? Whatever it is, I hope that you’re able to be present and fully enjoy it! The only thing that is real is the moment you’re/we’re in right now, so try to grab it with both hands… even if it’s just sitting with a cup of tea and reading this blog. I fly through life sometimes and don’t even look up to pay attention to what is going on around me.
We’re at yet another wedding this weekend! Yep. Non-stop. Another pair of friends whose big day was postponed because of COVID last Summer, and luckily they still like each other… so here we are!
And back to England in 2 week’s time. More Covid tests to book, bags to pack, flights to board and family to squeeze (hey Grandad!). Life is a bit overwhelming these days isn’t it? Or is it just me? Whilst doing all of these things, I need to actually look up and appreciate that I’m even able to do it all (thanks to vaccines and constant testing!). This time last year we couldn’t do much of anything.
I hope this relates to you. I think we’re still in survival mode (the pandemic is not over at all, so quite rightly!) but that also stops us from being able to fully appreciate where we are now and what we’re doing. Join me today… in trying to be present and taking it all in with gratitude, appreciation and eyes wide open. No matter WHAT we’re doing.
Speaking of appreciation… This week we have a wonderful collection of your artwork to share and appreciate. WOW! Ya ready?
Whoa! An absolutely glorious collection of your beautifully handmade cards and pieces of artwork. I hope you feel chuffed with yourself when you finish these. They are quite astounding really. I know that so many of us really enjoy seeing these each week, so thank you for sharing them online!
Did you catch Mum back in the SHAC SHAC this week? It’s official, Barbara is back! And she is going to be doing the SHAC SHAC every Thursday morning at 10am UK time. BRILLIANT! I know that many of us have missed spending that lovely hour with her. You can catch up on this week’s episode here…
For now, travel gently! And look up 🙂
And I’ll catch you tomorrow for a fun bloggy tutorial with our Glynis 🙂
Lotsa love, Grace xo
