Right Now : Challenges

So our bathroom is all demolished.
The trades are all booked.
The builder came yesterday and dropped off all the wood to start today.
Then at 7am this morning we got the call to say that our poor
builder who is 72 has put his back out!

I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason.
So now Mr O is on the search for a builder at short notice.
It certainly is a challenge!

Yesterday I started juicing.
I certainly ate my way through Christmas.
So now its time to make a change.
Juicing I have found is best started slowly as it can knock you around as you detox.
So I plan to start with juicing one meal a day and work up to two.
Then three meals.
I am hoping to go on a 4 day fasting and juicing retreat the middle of February 
(depending on how the bathroom renovation goes)  
so I am slowly working my way towards a healthier slimmer me.

Here is yesterdays juice : 

2 medium carrots
2 apples
1 medium beetroot
1/2 fresh lime
1 piece of ginger 2cm by 1cm
Feed all ingredients through the juicer, stir and is yummy and very filling.

Right now here is my work table:

I am finishing off a few shop orders before I start some new designs.
Master O still has a week of school holidays so I am not fully back into the swing of things yet.
I did however just design these new Kindle or Mini Ipad cases.

I have just received this great book it is all about making paper flowers 
but I think it is going to inspire
me greatly with some new felt flower designs.
I am looking forward to painting some felt and trying out some new designs.

Aren't these paper flowers just gorgeous.

I cannot wait to start these new designs.
My fingers are itching!
