Procrastination is really the mother of all evils. Unfortunately I’ve realized that I am really driven by deadlines; that is deadlines given to me by other people. Take this blog post: I have had seven days to post it and I am doing it on the last day.

Much like Lily, I have decided to create/finish something every week. I have a lot of unfinished projects and ideas that are half started, so a weekly deadline is really going to help me finish them. These projects will be a bit of everything, from jewelry, collages, drawings and knitwear, to gardening projects.

I was attempting to create a new piece of jewelry for Lily for Christmas. But it’s now the New Year and it still isn’t done, so what better place to start…

New Beginnings, New ideas

Happy New Year! With a new year comes new ideas and lots of resolutions. One of ours is to blog more often. A lot more often. So, we have committed to each post once a week about our current interests.

IMG_1557I'm (Lily) really into making postcards from old library catalogue index cards (see picture) and sending them around the world via I've created an album in our Flickr account to show you how they look.

My plan is to create, mail and share one postcard every week, although I got excited and had time today to send off two in the mail!

Brad is remaining elusive about what he is working on, so will share more details later in the week.

Hopefully we can sustain this for the next 52 weeks.

Lily & Brad
