One of my lovely bloggy friends Meredith told me last ‘What’s so Pinteresrting…” that she was really enjoying her Christmas wreath this year…. and suggested that I make a collection.
That suited me fine because I quite like wreaths myself, although this year our door is bare…… as is the house…. as is our advent calendar etc etc. More on that later.
Click through here to get some other inspiring wreath images.
P.S Sophie I haven’t forgotten your vikings…..

Meredith’s got a fabulous idea for fantasticly simple bible content here. Love it especially this close to Dec 1.
If you know what you want each day to hold, but need a little visual inspiration, have a look at my pinterest board here.
This year I have an unusual plan which focus’s on letters….. we will see how that goes.
I just realised that our advent events for 2012 are not collated….. so I will get onto that.
Enjoy, and let me know if you come across anything inspiring.

Sashiko is a Japanese embroidery technique that has it’s origins in mending.
Sashiko in Japanese means literally ‘little stabs.’
Traditionally done on navy Cotton/linen with white, ecru or cream thread, it is a simple running stitch used to create a pattern.
This week my students hand in their modern versions for marking, and I am really excited to see what they come up with.
Of course I cannot show you their work because that wouldn’t be the done thing, I thought I might show you some of the Sashiko I have collated on Pinterest.
Has anyone out there tried it?
Please let me know how you found it in the comments below, or tell me what theme you would like me to pin around for the next What’s so Pinteresting?.

I am going to continue with the interactive Pinteresting this year.
Caroline suggested last year that she would be interested in a collection of shoes….
Mostly I have gone with vintage shoes.
You can take a look here.
Let me know what you like… and if you would like me to put together a collection for you of anything. Just leave your ideas in the comments below.

For those of you who follow me on Pinterest, you will notice I have been spending a lot of time there lately…. Among other things I have found so many quotes and word posters and inspirational sayings. While some have substance, are thought provoking and even encouraging, the vast majority of them are ‘piffle’… as my mum would say.
They are a little like new years resolutions! Easily identified with or desired but offering no help in the achievement or simply so far from truth and reality that they are unachievable…… so I thought I would pepper my resolutions with them for your entertainment.
See if you can separate the profound from the piffle :0
What do I want more of, less of, more focused attention to and to try afresh in the new year?
-continue to volunteer. (This will need to be looked at carefully. 1 church, 3 schools and a number of sporting clubs gives many opportunities…..trying to work out how to be helpful but not overly burdened)
-think carefully through what each member of my family needs and encourage and support them towards that. (Many different hopes and dreams on one household can mean frequent disappointments, tears and joys. I hope this year to roll with all the ups and downs of it without becoming emotionally exhausted)
-spend more time with old friends and new.
Ok, bloggy friends…. there it is.
What have I missed?
