#MotivationMonday No.1

Good morning Dazzlers and happy Monday!

Today I’d like to share my (current) favourite quote for a bit of motivation at the beginning of the week.

I hope you all have a wonderful start to the week, have the courage to start crossing your metaphorical oceans (and I apologise for the slight inconsistency with the panorama picture above, the boat was rather wobbly).

Hello Dazzlers! Happy Monday and welcome to our brand new DeeperDazzle blog — please explore, enjoy and let us know what you think!

DIY: Need a new cardigan? Dig out an old jumper first! (Part 2)

Time to customise! (This is a part 2 – check out part 1 here!)

In the last post I cut an old, misshaped jumper down the front to open it up and create a cardigan.

In the last couple of weeks I have been busy customising the cardigan: adding an autumnal trim, binding and poppers. Here is the process and final product in pictures! Enjoy and get stitching!

DIY: Need a new cardigan? Dig out an old jumper first! (Part 1)

Turning a knitted jumper into a knitted cardigan without it unravelling!  The one thing I do love about autumn is that the climate allows you to play with layering, including cardigans, jumpers and KNITWEAR! In the bottom of my wardrobe I had a lovely grey, oversized, knitted jumper, which had unfortunately shrunk and become misshaped in the wash. BUT I…

For all you teachers out there (and everyone else too!)

Hello Dazzlers! Happy Wednesday! I hope you have all had a good first half of the week!

Firstly, this goes out to all my fellow teachers and their students!

However, no matter what we do or who we come into contact with we influence the people around us – we are all teachers and students in some sort of way.

So ask yourself who are you teaching, who are you encouraging, who are you learning from and how can you help everyone around us be more awesome!

Kid President’s (also known as Robby Novak, aged 9) videos are officially my favourite on the internet! Always encouraging and super motivating – he believes we all have the potential to be and create something AWESOME! You can read his profile on TED here and make sure you check out his YouTube Channel here.
