Yesterday we had one of those miserable rainy weather days all day. I was afraid our amazing hot summer weather was gone for good but hey no! Today, it's back to sunshine again! Yay! So much more uplifting.

With so many hobbies to maintain I sometimes have a dilemma what to choose. Shall I knit or perhaps shall I stitch or crochet something today? Or maybe should I get my glass paints pots out... or make cards? Decisions, decisions.- we all know it. If I do something like for example I knit, I regret I don't make cards. If I make cards, then I regret I don't practise my crochet skills and so on. Do you know that feeling? So I decided to satisfy my crafting craves and my plans for today are: cards, cards, cards for the 1st half of the day, then yarns and threads and needles combined with late evening telly watching :)
A good cup of tea, jam toasts and yarns/threads will definitely keep me happy today. (Did you know? I have a thing about jam and butter toasts - they have to be cut into triangles :) Dunno why, I just love them that way. My bf introduced me to this idea. It's tasty and kinda... cute. It's a bit of a British thing, I reckon). In the meantime, knitting the Nordic balls is back on track again ( a commission for a colleague) and I'm still cross stitching the tropical bookmark with parrots.

Sometimes I like to blog about the crafty stash I have particular liking / attachment to. I'm definitely VERY MUCH attached to stamps, as you can see :) If there are any stampaholics among my readers out there, watch out! I thought I'd share it with you. HeroArts and Basic Grey teamed up to create these wonderful sets of retro stamps. The left-hand set arrived at my door step well over a week ago and the right-hand set came through with the post yesterday. I'm in love with these trendy retro designs!
When I discovered them I thought of my younger brother straight away. He is kinda "retro" :) He wears glasses (sometimes a moustache too!!!), loves riding a bike and obviously loves music to bits. These stamps will be perfect for his birthday card in December.
Notice the moustache stamp - so trendy these days and chevrons and arrows. Love 'em all! Great job HeroArts and Basic Grey!
