CAT Week

CAT Week: 20 – 27 Jan with Annelies @annelies.leask


Hi everyone, I’m excited to be back in this lovely creative space. Thanks Jill @neverjillian for such a fun week, so wonderful to see the next generation of crafters enjoying what they love. 🎉

I’m borrowing my inspiration for this week’s theme from the wonderful #foreverfaffing hashtag (check it out if you haven’t before, so many beautifully styled shots). I love using my craft supplies, finished makes and wips to faff with, photograph and share and I’ve noticed you guys do too. So come and faff for fun with me this week using the tag #craftastherapy_faffing and you may get featured here on the main page.

And in case you haven’t come across the term ‘faffing’, as apparently it’s an informal British term, it’s defined as ‘spending time in ineffectual activity’ which of course if you’re faffing creatively could never be thought of as time-wasting. 😉💗

Kicking off our week of #craftastherapy_faffing with these pretty and playful shots. It’s always good to make time to faff with flowers and yarn in my opinion. Thanks for joining in ladies. 🌼🌸🌺
