My Day...

 Each day lately is mapped out in my diary with the build up to Niche in 9 days time.
I thought I would show you my day today, just for the sake of it.
My diary holds not only events and appointments, but things which inspire me that I pick up while I am out and about and around our home.
Today it was the lace I forgot I had and some old wooden buttons to 'work' I went...
after that it was straight to work on my new sewing machine.
I must say 1 step buttonhole is amazing =0)

then off to print a small pile of covers

pick up the loads of scraps from the floor office is a mess right now

a small reminder why I do all of this

heat set the new, finished covers.
Then start the after school madness of reading, dinner etc.
A simple day for me today, but
I do love it all.


  1. Zumba ;)))) Love zumba :)))) and your new sewing machine is awesome ;))) Greetings from Czech Republic,

  2. Your pictures are so beutiful :) I'll put "you" in to my blogroll :)

  3. I have a scheduler but I never use it! I should try anyhow!
    Have a lovely day!


  4. Radostina, I am a Zumba instructor as well as a Personal Trainer and it is a big part of my day planning and practising. Glad you love it =0)

  5. Andie- I think it takes time to get used to jotting down your day in a planner. My days are crazy with the mix of fitness and interiors and the kids and if I didnt have it there to look at I would'nt be able to go from Designer to Instructor very well ;0) It reminds me of so much I would forget other wise.
    Maybe you should give it another go...good luck.

  6. What a beautiful peek into your life.

    Love the look of your diary.. mine is a chaotic mess haahhaaa

  7. It's nice to see that you have scheduled in time for fitness, work and family! You're doing an amazing job =)

  8. Hola
    I, too, have a Brother sewing machine (Xmas 2010!), and I, too, love the digital buttonhole happiness! Mine's a Project Runway model -- do you get that show in Australia? It's one of my FAVES. xo
    Your pal,
    K A Y

  9. You love it and you do it so well! (now I'm off to Google 'Zumba')

  10. I think what I need is a daily planner. Oh, I don't have a lot of important things to do, but I need more structure in my day to accomplish many of the things I need/want to do. Just seeing your planner sparked a great idea!! thanks!

  11. Hi Ness,
    I love your daily planner, it's as pretty as the things that you create. It's hard not to be happy when you are creating and making all things pretty.


  12. You are a busy girl! I would love if you were closer, I would love to take a zumba class!


  13. Hi Ness, I love the beautiful linen of those cushion covers, and also love your little clay tags. I have just set up my own blog ( and I've put up a little post about your tags (hope you don't mind)- I've found a great use for them. Thanks so much for your creative talents, they brighten my day x

  14. Hey Ness, Good luck with all your planning; and good luck at The Niche Market. I hope to call and say hi. Take care Manda x

  15. Hi Ness,

    I really loved this post. Sometimes, it's easy to judge and not know what someone does in their day. No wonder you need a diary, I need mine too otherwise I'd forget everything!!

    I love to see what inspires you too. I would also love to get the music the instructors use for their exercises. It's so cool and varied...although when I enquired a few years ago, the instructor was saying how dear it is. I suppose that's still the case?

    Hope you're enjoying your week.

    Take care

  16. What a wonderful creative day of your life! It seems that you have the same sewing machine as I have. We bought it about 6 weeks ago! :) Do you think it was worth it? After sewing some bags, labels and other beautiful small things, I can say that it is not always easy but the results are simply gorgeous. It's only a question of practice. A new day has just started. I hope it will be as creative for you as the last one. Enjoy it! Alexandra

  17. Wow, you are ambitious! At least you make time for yourself to work out! You're healthy AND busy!

  18. I love that you include pretty things on your planner- it makes the mundane stuff that much more enjoyable :)

  19. You're a zumba instructor, too?
    Wow, you GO, girl! ;-)

    Missed you, I've been in a bit of a funk and haven't been making the rounds too much. Hope you are well!
