I have been trying to live by my New Year motto of just doing what needs to be done instead of dithering about; so while the house is still not spotless it is better than it was, and there is food in the fridge and homework is done. My biggest change has been managing to pack lunches for my girls the night before they need them, when the 20 minutes it takes is barely noticed; rather than the school morning scramble when that same 20 minutes means I run out of time to eat breakfast.
So, when I saw Amanda's instructions for a ticker tape canvas I knew that instead of putting it off I should just make one, then I realised that our hallway was a bit empty after taking down the decorations and that rather than putting up the same old pictures I could make some new ones. So I did. And here they are. The canvases were only 99p each at The Works so with a pot of Mod Podge the whole lot came in at just over 10 quid, which I think is a bargain.
I couldn't be more pleased with them - and the bonus is that everyone else in the house likes them too. Result!
