Right. Someone needs to tell the weather man it’s June. I’m writing this wrapped up in PJs and a dressing gown it’s so cold!! At least we had some sunshine in May and lots of lovely things happened. Despite May and June being super tough for my migraine head (changeable weather to blame!) there was a lot to be grateful for and many things to share on Instagram. Here’s a round up of the month….
Getting super excited when customers share their Claireabellemakes purchases online
Stationery in the studio / Relaunching the Notebooks / More customer snaps!
This weekend I am going to Suffolk to watch my sister do a charity sky dive! It’s going to take a while on the train, so I’m taking my backlog of craft magazines and some crochet. What are you guys doing this weekend?
May has been good to me. I had a better time with my migraines (fingers crossed the new meds are working) and the sun made an appearance in Cambridge, brightening a few days. Here are my instagram snaps for the month.
Taking my pom pom clad bike out / Passing tulip covered greens on the way to work
Indulging in a round of golf with G / Amazing Wisteria on a thatched cottage in town
I haven’t posted an Instalife update for a while, so I thought with the change of season it was about time. Here’s a little bit of what I’ve managed to get up to during a month of horrendous migraines!
Quentin Blake Exhibition at The Fitzwiliam Museum / The latest Cambridge Yarn Bomb
My City commute with the cows! / Anthony Gormley’s Feet (and mine)
Being frugal with the stationery at work & tidying the office
Sorting Nan’s things & finding her sewing machine / My new Janome – named Romy
A travel sewing tin of Nan’s (She was named Poppy) / Her garden in the sun
Making up some new pendants /organising my ring display for a stall
Setting up for a vintage fair / new galaxy print studs (more coming!)
A kind gift from a friend in the mail / Tammy sleeping against G’s arm (silly thing!)
Daffs always bring me a smile / My faves from the Vivid Please gang
A month of mixed emotions and tricky times, but at least I managed some craft and to keep blogging, which keeps me going for sure. I hope you enjoyed my month of giveaways on the blog! May will be fun as I have lots of crafty meet ups planned and it is G’s birthday. He has requested an ice cream bar at home, so I am busy planning that!
You can follow me on Instagram here, but be warned – my feed is mainly cats and craft! 🙂
Where did February go? I’m already collating Instagram pictures and it seems like January only just began! I had a quiet month of taking more time for myself and my health did improve slightly, yay!
I haven’t had a big migraine since the beginning of February, so that’s something, but I have felt very fatigued which has been hard. In March I’ll go to London to see the specialist again so I’m feeling a bit more positive.
Anyway, you are probably wondering what I’ve been up to, so here is my Instalife round up for February.
