Suzi’s financial crisis!

Looks like we are all in for a bit of a tough time.  No wonder I try and avoid the news, and put my head in the sand.  But it seems we are heading for another recession.  Especially when you read articles like this  in the Herald sun or even this from the Sydney Morning Herald. You begin to wonder how this might affect you.

It seems like we are all counting our pennies and trying to spend them wisely already, in preparation of what might be to come.  So I think with this in mind, it is time to get creative! Don’t let all the doom and gloom be a set back to your lifestyle and family.

I am actually even considering taking up sewing.  There are some amazing craft and sewing sites, you should check them out sometime.  It is amazing what you can make when you put your mind to it.  I only hope that my projects can turn out as good as this, http://verypurpleperson.com/.  I really like the reversible bag.  I wonder how hard it would be for my first attempt!  And look at this site, it shows you how to make everything, even things you haven’t thought about making http://www.folksy.com/making.

I don’t think I will be getting a diamond ring this year.  So maybe it is time I put matters into my own hands, so I can get some new jewellery.  I found this site and I feel quite inspired after seeing what some other creative people have made!

The other thing I am going to do is jazz up our main bedroom once it is painted which won’t hurt the budget, is a wall decal!  Wall Decals are a great way to finish off an empty wall, and they don’t need to be limited to just children’s room.

This is what I was thinking but in silver, something soft and simple! (don’t forget to check us out or have a word to us about some wall decals that might suite your space!)

My sister has also started making fabric covered button hair ties and hair clips for her little girl, not only is it cheaper, but it is a fun activity for all the famiy and you can perfectly coordinate with your wardrobe.

Well I hope I have given you some good ideas to help you get your creative juices flowing.  And remember things may be tight but there is no need to miss out on having some special items.  And knowing  you have made it yourself is accomplishment enough, don’t you think?

Happy Making!!
