Sunday Smiles #4

Thank you to those of you that linked up last week!
These are a few of the things that have been making me smile this week.
Self ~ Improvement Smiles
I’m a huge believer in the correlation between happiness and creativeness, finding my own creative outlets has greatly helped with my recovery from PND and PTSD so I was pretty stoked when I stumbled across 15 Minutes a Day Challenge ~ Living a Creative Life by Melissa Dinwiddie. The premise, is simple, spend 15 minutes a day doing something creative!
Home Style Smiles
I’ve already mentioned that this year we WILL be doing our home over, so I’ve been trawling the internet for inspiration. I’m not a one theme kinda gal, and I don’t really get the whole yearly redo, I’m more a “Ohhhh my gawd, I love love love THAT and I NEED it in my home” complete with squees, hand clapping and occasionally jumping around} which is where it will stay for years, until I grow bored of it or accidentally break or destroy it.
This week I stumbled across the swoon inducing talented Ashley Thomas. Her At Home collection is just beautiful and WILL be adorning my home very soon.

How fabulous are those Russian Doll mugs? I know! Very fabulous!
I decided to see what else Debenhams has to offer in home decor, more swooning, le sigh.

Education Smiles
I wrote a post recently on how I struggle helping my kiddos with their homework. As a mother, being unable to help them with this, makes me feel like a total mama fail, not a nice feeling. So when I discovered the amazing resources available at Twinkl I just about did a happy dance.
After printing off a bunch of relevant resources I set to with my paper cutter and laminator, and ended up with an impress array of resources I can help my kiddos work on to improve pencil control, maths and spelling, squee! This is an essential website for both paid for and free educational resources, a new fav!
