I´ve been sorting out my studio a little today, well it actually took me more time then planned but I´m happy with the changes. Sometimes you just need to change things up, especially if you feel a little bit stuck mentally.
I must be honest and say that I don´t have much to share. I haven´t been in a healthy mental space latley, but I am fine. I think it´s just January and too much work and not that much progress, which has taken a toll on me. Sometimes It´s just hard and thats okay. However, I´m getting through and I´m actually positive, It´s just a little challenging to find motivation, but I know it will wear off soon enough.
Anyways, It´s almost the weekend and I´m planning on being kind to myself. I´m hoping to do some running if the weather is ok, mabey have a warm bath and I´m definitely going to spend a few hours watching Netflix in bed.
Although I´ts covid times, I hope you have a lovely weekend x
We had a lovely party last night, which I feel incredibly blessed about. Living in a community of people has had its perks during this pandemic. I served cocktails from the cocktail corner, we did whiskey sour, cucumber g&t´s and an interesting espresso martini. There was canapes, turkey for the normal people and veggies for me. Lot´s of Champagne too, which we all felt today. Hah. We played a murder and mystery game during dinner (I was the killer!), and we celebrated the New Year with lots of cheers and hugs. For a moment, life seemed almost normal.
Right, It´s 01.57am and the New Year awaits, well, bedtime first though. Oh, and I´m very pleased to tell you that I´ve taken down all the Christmas decorations in my studio. Off it goes, out with the old and in with the new. Time for a new chapter!
I wish you all a magical New Year, may it bring us all what we want and long for. My heart goes out to each and one of you.
Time went by so quickly today, I´ve been writing Christmas cards and making garlands for the adventcalendar + I cooked dinner. I feel like I´ve done a lot today, but not necessarily what I wanted to achieve. Hah. I am sure a few of you can relate? Especially during these days.
from earlier today. I prefer to make garlands from scratch (the proper floristry way hehe), but since Stephanie already have plastic ones with lights on, I´ve freshed up these ones by attaching real greenery to them. Philip brought yummy Christmas tea.
we had a little party last night celebrating Stephanies 100K, which was great fun. I feel so lucky to live in a community here at Lalande where we can still dress up for a party and laugh together. I borrowed this beautiful dress from Stephanie. Love her wardrobe
Hope youré all well? The house is slowly changing these days, some are leaving while others are arriving. Looking forward to celebrating Christmas here and to also see old Lalanders again. We´re doing Secret Santa!!
Hello everyone! How are you?? I hope you didn´t think I had forgotten about you? hehe. I´ve just been soo busy today. I have a few deadlines and I decided to spend the whole day writing Christmas cards (for my members at With Marie) + my family and friends, just to get it all out and away. I still have a few cards more to write but I´m waiting for more to arrive in the post. The weekend will be pretty fun but full on. Tomorrow, I´ll be in the studio creating content and filming for a new how-to video. I´m doing some pretty florals in softer tones, if it dosent rain I´ll go for a forage too. Saturday is Sankta Lucia preperation day. So, I´m going to bake, yes me (SEND HELP), Sankta Lucia buns for Sunday. Yaay.! All good fun. Sunday will be a editing day, and if I can get around to making a garland, I´ll do that too. SO yeah, lots to do.
me out in the Chateau woods foraging for winter greens for the big wreath. The sunlight was so lovely
I picked up flowers on Tuesday and we went to Bernards shop to look for some pressies. I found a pretty mirror for my bedroom
the big Christmas wreath for the gate! It was so fun and actually very quick to make. I dried orange sliced and found zinnamon sticks from the kitchen. I ´ve been gifted some red berries and pine cones, so I used those too. I ended up using tre types of winter greens, American silver fir,Eastern white pine and European Larch.
Right, I have some more work to do before I have a date with Philip and Stephanie to watch the Crown. Episode 3 next, so excited!!
