The weather has been absolutely beautiful here the last few days, it has been sunny and bright and really warm, hell anyone would have thought it was Summer! Myself and himself broke out the sunglasses and
had our breakfast in the park last weekend, a friend of mine even told me she got sun burnt on her neck on Sunday! So you can imagine my surprise this morning when I pulled back the curtains only to be met with dark, grey clouds, a gloomy looking sky, trees blowing frantically in the wind and then, around lunch time, the heavens opening. Grumble. Just when I thought Summer was finally here. What about that sweet little butterfly I seen fluttering around yesterday? Was it all a dream?
But, as always if you use a little imagination and a pinch of that creative (that everyone has) you can still have a fun and enjoyable rainy day.
Realistically, the rain has had little effect on me really because I have been spending my day pretty much the same way I spend most of my days, creating pretty things at my art desk. I have been working on a new little project today actually and if you are very, very lucky you might get to have a sneak peak later.
If you are free on a rainy day, if you don't have to go to work or school, it is the perfect opportunity for some home improvements. Not any old home improvements, D.I.Y. home improvements. Oh yes, Martha Stewart eat your heart out!!
Here are a few D.I.Y home improvement projects that would be perfect to try on a rainy day (and I intend to):
- Stencil Throw Pillow
Make this simple but classy looking pillow case by following Amanda Wrights tutorial on her blog Wit & Whistle. She uses a plain cushion cover, a fabric marker and a letter stencil.
