N is for

Okay so this is two posts in one day, but at least I am back on schedule.

Onto the letter 'N' which for me is 'Need'. This is another one of those words where the defition changes according to whether it is a verb, noun or adjective. Sorry, didn't mean to turn this into an English grammar lesson. However, our basic understanding of the word is 'if you need something is it because it is necessary'. But, once again there are some strange phrases associated with the word; 'Need you ask?' - of course I do or why would I be asking, 'In this department we work on a need to know basis', how do you know what you need to know? and telling someone they need their head examining is maybe not the smartest thing you can say.

And in the craft world we all know the meaning of the word 'Need' don't we???? If you haven't realised there are three stages to craft purchases - liking, wanting and needing. You know you're hooked when you start skipping straight to stage three!

Here's another hybrid tag
 This one is also based on one of the Vintage Tag printables with new design elements and the addition of ribbon, pins. flowers and gems.

This tag would probably fall into the quick and easy section of crafting. Download the tag, print it and add your own finishing touches. And sometimes that it exactly what we need to do. Make some quick and simple.

One final thing I would like you to think about. There are certain times in our life when we must recognise when we need something. Whether that be help in our job, advice on a particular problem or comfort from a partner or friend. And once we recognise that need we must never be afraid to ask for it.

See you tomorrow

Love the way that red ribbon captures the colour of those birds' feathers. Delightful. There really are times when there is a need which can only be met by having the courage to ask …….. thanks for more thoughtful insights.
