{two} days off.

Hello all,

As of today I have two days off...together which for those of you who also work in retail know is a bit of a brucey bonus!

I thought I'd just check in with you actually and give you a quick explanation as to why I've been a little rubbish on the {DIY} blogging side for the last few weeks. Well since Christmas actually! Essentially - I've been finding it a little difficult I must say, to juggle a full-time job with completing lots and lots of Etsy orders {essentially having two full-time jobs} as well as find time to create and photograph projects as well as edit and post them!

I think balancing all of this is possible - it's just something I need to play around with before I will get right. So please, forgive me.

However, as I said, I do now have two days to get myself into gear, post all of those orders, finish those {DIY} projects I had planned and get a nice line up of posts ready to roll for next week. I feel a monstrous to-do list coming on!

Anyway - I hope you lovelies are all well and having a nice week despite the biblical {as my lovely friend Els described it} weather we seem to be having...I genuinely thought my windows might cave in with the wind!!


p.s. if you've never met him before - meet Finn {pictured} he's my happy little man, every time I see those little curled up paws I melt!

if you're feeling fond of this little hammie you might want to follow me on Instagram {@ohnorachio}.

{goodness me} last week...

Hello all, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Had you forgotten about me? I've been AWOL this week again - and not even because I've been galavanting around on a lovely holiday! {boo}. I have indeed been working what feels like two full-time jobs. Going to work during the day and then creating and packaging lots of orders at night - and then queueing at the Post Office for my entire lunch break everyday to get everybody's lovely orders out to them in time for Christmas!

So today I thought I'd just check in and say hey and share with you a few snaps of my busy bee week!
My awesome stickers from Moo arrived! {yay for pretty packaging!}
This little man joined the family...
All of these to illustrate in one evening.
All ready to package up!
Finn had a bad hair day...
I went all festive with my nails...
Saturday morning pre 9am this was me..
Oodles of candy canes to pop into my orders {everyone loves a sweet treat!}.
My creation in all of its glory {so proud!} - I now have somewhere to store all of my notebooks!
My rather festive, neat and tidy little desk :)

With any luck - I'll be nice and organised and have some lovely posts for you all throughout the week...

Festive cheer and happy Monday!
