Happy Monday to you all! At I2K HQ we’ve had our usual busy weekend. Saturdays I tend to take the full day to work on custom orders, and this weekend was no exception! I got 2 small orders compeleted.
First up, something always close to my heart as a full-term breastfeeding mum, a booby beanie. This one is my first ever 100% cotton one for a vegan customer, because even though I love natural fibres, not everything has to be wool!
Next up were 2 very cute little kids bracelets, these a custom order for another vegan customer. Ordered while doing a Market event over on Facebook with Sam’s Magical Threads. The beautiful hand dyed cotton was from one of my favourite Indie dyers over at Rainbow Fusions
That brings me quite perfectly to the project that will be ongoing into this week! These are for the fabulous dyer behind Rainbow Fusions herself. This yarn was dyed by her and sent to me to knit up. I always love getting to make beautiful things with yarn that I’ve not purchased myself. So this is Aurora colourway from RF. I also want to credit Evan Sent Crafts for my pyrography ruler.
Time to Relax
Sunday I spent more relaxed, more work on the above socks, but some time out with my Small and Teeny girls to enjoy where we live. This river is literally at the end of our road, and if you pop over and check my Instgram there’s a couple of videos of this crazy pair!
The calm, relaxing river walk prepped me for doing my first Facebook Live over in my group, these will be a regular feature and I loved my first one. More there on those orders I’ve shown above.
Why I Love Monday!
That brings us to Monday, which is always about week prep, and I’ve spent the day here planning and writing, two more posts are planned for the week, even though my girls and I are all off to visit family later in the week!
I’ve always made an effort to do something I enjoy on Monday, to shake that apparent negativity it often holds for people! When I was employed, I always tried to take Monday as my day off, and now as a small business owner I always take time to get away from the chaos of being a Work At Home Mum, of course this involves coffee shops and cake!
Why not set yourself up for a great week by taking even just 10 minutes to do something just for you on a Monday, no matter what the week has in store determine to find some joy in this much maligned day! That will set you up for a fabulous week!
Much love to you all
