October already?

Sorry for my absence. Dunno what happened. All of a sudden we are in October. October! What happened to September?
What happened to me in the meantime, since the last post?

Been incredible busy at work. Seems to be a never-ending line of new people starting in our group, and it's my job to make sure they are trained and ready to do their job.
This might sound easy enough, and in a way it is... but 1 new start equals 6-7 weeks of training. All of a sudden it's a lot. But I am not complaining. I like the job. It's just busy really.

Being busy at work has the tendency of draining my brain power and by the time I get home, crafting often takes a back seat if I am really knackered. I will check in on my etsy store and Swap Workshop, to stay on top of things there. But new creations have been limited.

That is, until I had 2 weeks holiday in September. - It seemed like a miracle and a shock to the system, to be able to chill and hang out with family and just make whatever I wanted. Being surrounded by the youngsters of the clan was also a great inspiration.

Nothing like eager little kids to get your creativity flowing again. I did a lot of colouring in with my niece. How I've missed having a colouring book and a set of felt-tip pens. Pure heaven :) - Even better now that I'm able to "colour inside the lines". Most the time anyway, ha-ha.

This was always the aim when you were little, wasn't it? To stay within the big thick black lines on the page, while you were colouring in the house/car/parrot etc.

Ahh relaxation and creativity, how I missed thee!
