My latest interests #6

I have been having just the best fun with my extra time - I know that I am counting down the days until we meet this baby but just having some time for me between work and becoming a mummy has been the best! My mum has been really supportive this week too, we have been up to all sorts of adventures!

This coming week I would like to:

  • Get a home made present ready for our friends who get married at the end of September.
  • Take photos of the things I am hoping to sell in my upcoming etsy shop

These are the things I have found interesting this week:
  • I made some brilliant Honey and Date loaf earlier in the week and it just makes my afternoon extra lovely!
  • I love this etsy shop and I really think that I could do something similar to this with the fimo that Stacey and I have been playing around with lately. 
  • Guessing that nesting has kicked in with a baking tinge at the moment, I also made some Cheese and Chive scones. I am considering keeping this recipe and making them each week til the baby arrives because I can take small bites when I am in labour for slow release energy. 
  • All my creative  juices seem to be flowing too and I really would like to get a variety of cookie cutters in order to use them with the fimo but also to create our sunday cookies for our family traditions - as mentioned in this post
  • I am also hoping that my FREE button swap gains momentum and I manage to make new friends!


  1. Hi Natalie! I'm following your from the Find + Follow Friday blog hop. I look forward to reading and learning more from you! I have 5 blogs, but I'm kind of learning on the run, so there's lots of things I haven't started or I started and haven't finished. Like the free button swap idea. I hope it goes well for you! Take care!
