Red and Yellow and Pink and Blue...

I'm afraid no outfit posts from this weekend as the heavens opened and is was just impossible to get any kind of decent shot outside, but I did don the wellies.

Anyway yesterday I popped into town to get the lens I have finally settled on (Tamron 17-50mm) however much to my dismay they had run out! Booo, but I've got in on order and should be able to collect it next weekend. YAY!  So not to return home empty handed I popped into TIGER it's the most awesome shop that sells loads of random stuff from clocks to canvases to stationary, but at really cheap prices - perfect.  I happened to spy a 40 pack of A4 decorative paper for only £2, bargain, and I thought it would come in handy for all my (new) arts and crafts adventures.

As soon as I got home I couldn't wait to use them, so I decided to cover yet another one of my notebooks in this rather pretty patchwork design


I basically took 3 sheets from the book and chopped them up into little rectangles and with PVA in hand set about covering my book.  I think it looks rather cute and another simple yet stylish way to cover a dull notebook.  What do you guys think?


I also picked up a storage jar in another shop to store all my pens...



...simple yet cute, I call it my jar'o'pens.  You see I have an (unhealthy) obsession with pens and notebooks - it would be less unhealthy if I could actually draw but I can't, though I am beginning to practise more and more, maybe I'll show you guys my doodles one day.

How was everyone else's weekend? Were you out sunning yourselves or cowering from the rain?

The notebook turned out great! I love when an un-planned project comes out so good. :)

I also have an unhealthy obsession/addiction with/to notebooks and pens. I really cannot draw, but I do write lots of mindless things in them...
