Friday Links :: Mandalas, Creativity, Sashiko

Playing with the Portra app
Blake is always cute, and now he's painterly too. I've been playing with an app I accidentally stumbled upon, it's called Portra (Android, Apple). It has a dozen watercolour and other artsy effects. Fun!

After you have enjoyed wasting time with that app, here are some links I have emailed to myself this week.

Painted Mandalas Gilded with Gold Leaf. Stunning work.

Speaking of mandalas, have I mentioned that my book, Mandalas to Embroider, is out ON MONDAY?! :-)

If you want a signed copy of the book, you can order it from my shop. If you just want a copy, you can order from Amazon (UK) or Book Depository. Hot tip: the book is only £7.02 on Book Depository as I'm typing this!

Gretchen Rubin has a list of 7 Brilliant Books About the Nature of Creativity. I need to put some of those on my to-read list!

100 free or low-cost ideas for self care from Mason Dixon Knitting. "28. Find a way to manage your self-talk, and mute the Inner Critic." Need to work on that one!

Your Guide To Surviving The Holidays as a vegan/plantbased person.

7 questions to ask when you're feeling stuck.

The Burner List: an interesting approach to to-do lists. I'm always tweaking my to-do list system, this could work.

This learn to do sashiko stitchalong from Blair Stocker at wisecraft looks like fun.
