Since I took redundancy at work I've been aware that books costs a little too much - at least in the volume I read them!!! So when we had a new library built where I live I was so happy. I'd not been to a library since I was at University. The one where I live used to be housed in an awful pre-fab building which I walked past regularly with a little shudder. When a new school was built across the road, a little library was added to the building. It's a great facility if a little cold. It's all modern and bright colours inside but I can't help but feel it is not very inviting. I expected the children's section to be filled with bright displays on different books - something to entice children into wanting to read new books but as far as I can see there is nothing there.
Anyway I am trying to just get a handful of books each visit. That way I can read and de-clutter some of the books I own. However, I may be having trouble sticking to it..... If you want to order a book, it is so easy to do so online - I may have ordered some and they are slowly trickling into the library. Last Friday I wasn't going to get any but there were 2 waiting for me. Everyone knows there's no point just getting 2 so I grabbed some more.
When I started this post I realised that i haven't posted any crafting photos yet, so here's the badge i made N for her Birthday.
I enjoyed making it so much, I have many more on the go for up coming birthdays!!!! Who wouldn't like a number badge for their big day?????
