TWiP: Coffee and creativity

Last week, I decided that instead of spending too much time working on a little introduction for my TWiP post, I’d use my writing time to work on some regular blog posts. That worked out really well, and since I have two more full post topics brewing, I think I’m going to do the same today. With luck, I’ll get at least one of them ready to post during the week!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 35/365 – Polka Dot Cottage – Saturday is order shipping day!

Instagram πŸ“±: Hi, Instagram 😊 This is what I made since you saw me last: one boot cuff. I should probably knit the other one so I could actually wear them…

Sunday

Instagram πŸ“±: I was pretty excited when they gave me a retractable badge reel for my key when I started my job. It meant I had a use for the #polymerclay #pdcbadgereels I’ve been making. So I’ve been using the three on the right for the past month, but I decided I need more variety. Sounds like the perfect task for a Sunday afternoon 😊 #pdc

365 πŸ“·: 2017 36/365 Makers Gonna Make – I always pick out my work clothes the night before. Tomorrow, I think I’ll wear one of my favorite t-shirts and some Polka Dot Cottage bangle bracelets πŸ™‚

Monday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 37/365 – readingglasses.com – I ordered these suckers on Friday and they are already here! I’m so glad, because the other pair of computer progressives I have are slightly too big for me, and slide down my nose constantly. Now that I know I will wear this type of glasses all day long, it was worth it to me to buy a pair that fits.

Tuesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 38/365 – Lisa’s Salad – I am brown-bagging it today. Well, aqua-with-cherries-bagging it, really.

Instagram πŸ“±: Second cup. β˜• [Taken at work.]

Wednesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 39/365 – Sugar n Cream – I have a coffee pot that needs a crocheted cozy. Going to bang that out tonight.

Thursday

Instagram πŸ“±: I’m working from home today because of the snow, and I finally got a chance to use the Melitta coffee pot my sister gave me for Christmas. I crocheted it a cozy last night to help keep the coffee warm all morning πŸ˜Šβ˜•

365 πŸ“·: 2017 40/365 – Shift – It’s snowing outside, and I’m working from home today.

Friday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 41/365 – Kind – Breakfast. I have one of these almost every day. I love the maple sea salt flavor.

Instagram πŸ“±: Friday night πŸ”₯

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
