‘I like’ Fridays


Well this week has seen all sorts of decisions and new things for me, all good things!  We have seen snow and sun and ice in all kinds of order and the weekend is supposed to be sunny and warm so we are looking forward to that.

I have been drawing and painting and reading and catching the train and borrowing library books.  I hope you have had a good week and are having a happy Friday.

Here are a few things I am liking today –

The new Jamie Oliver magazine which I bought today at the international newsagent nearby, I am sure I am at least one issue behind, but I get them eventually!

Magma sketchbooks are so gorgeous to look at and they make sketchbooks for specific areas like fashion or idea generation.

Home made scented balms and solid perfume, I am looking into the best ‘recipe’ and playing with scent combinations!  So fun!

Our local Goodwill store, I got a lovely little vintage pyrex bowl and I found the boys a Nerf gun each, so everyone was a winner.

Getting the last of the colour out of my hair, I am now ‘au naturel’ in the hair department.

The calligraphy course at Creative Bug, I am planning to start today.  Get the sketchbook ready.

Happy Weekend, Six Word Saturday tomorrow – see you then!

I live in St Louis, MO, but I am originally from Lincoln, Great Britain. My family and I have lived in the Mid West for over 15 years now. My blog is where I blog and chat about all kinds of creative stuff.


  1. girl you have been busy! lots going on!

    i used to make soap and body products. it’s an awesome thing to get into! can’t wait to hear more about that!
    i haven’t had the opportunity to get into it again here trying to source raw ingredients are too expensive to come by…. but i am heavy into natural house cleaners.
    my current favorite scent combination is eucalyptus mint.

    • Hi Tracie, so far I have mixed Black tea and Ocean = Tea by the Sea and Grass and Rose = Rose Lawn. Looking forward to coming up with more silly names!!!

  2. The scented balms and solid perfumes sound great – what scents are your favourite? I used to make my own body lotion, you’ve inspired me to get back into it!

    • Body lotion sounds like something else we should make!!! I like all the odd scents like grass, sea breeze, rain and tea. My all time favourites are rose and violet though. I just want to mix rose with everything.
