Blue Monday?

Today is Blue Monday - the most depressing day of the year apparently.

It is very easy to get bogged down in January isn't it. To say that I am feeling quite lack lustre at the moment is an understatement. I'm really trying hard not to get bogged down though, and I think planning and doing is the way forward. Well that's the theory anyway.

This Blue Monday makes me feel much happier:

I don't feel blue when I look at some of my recent purchases - I feel perfectly pink!
Some pink papers which I picked up at a newly opened craft shop in my local village, and some Laura Ashley fabric - a metre off cut for £1.75 - bargain!and how can you feel blue when you see this? This is a handmade bear which was a christmas gift from Mr Monda.

not such a blue Monday after all really!

Love love LOVE Mr Monda's bear - what a cutie! (Both the bear and Mr M for lovingly crafting it!) (Keep an eye on your stash though - he's obviously a natural at plushies!)

The bear is brilliant! and £1.75 for Laura Ashley fabric?! That's the kind of bargain that should banish those January blues!

I didn't know about blue Monday until this year. Then I had such a crappy day on Blue Monday and Wesley told me about it. Now I know!!! The little bear is absolutely gorgeous! Did Mr Monda made it for you?? Love the pink muzzle.
