making stuff...

Today I made stuff...because I'm sad...sad because we don't have a car anymore :(
My boyfriend was involved in an accident on Wednesday, and luckily he is ok, but the car is not. The man who came to tow the car away said the car's value would not be worth fixing it, so they left it there and now it's at the wreckers.

The reason I'm sad is, that it is my first ever car. I bought it three years ago when I arrived in Australia and it has taken us everywhere. Countless road trips, to the beach, the supermarket, the studio...and now I have to do it all by train :(

Hopefully we'll have a new [read second hand] car soon, so I can at least do my groceries... as there's no supermarket at walking distance from us.

So, that's why I'm making stuff...and trying to take pretty pictures of it ;)
I think the dusty colour range would look lovely in a kids room.

Poop. I hate having to look at and buy a new (also second-hand) car. Car yards and car dealers freak me out. Good luck with your hunt. I hope the car dealers Gods are on your side.

Bugger! Glad he's okay though, that's the important thing isn't it.

Gorgeous cushion, that has to cheer you up.

Happy car shopping!

It always helps being busy with both your hands and mind to put yourself back into a positive state. That is party why I always need to be working on little art projects. As soon as I complete something artistic I immediately need to be thinking and planning my next crafty activity.

I'm sorry you're sad, and about your poor car! I'm glad your boyfriend is OK though.

Pretty, pretty cushion.

Oh that is sad. I'm glad your boyfriend is ok though. And I totally agree with those dusty colours, they would be gorgeous in a kid's room :)
