My Art Journaling Journey begins…

Week two of Covid-19 Lockdown, I don't mind it so much as it gives me peace to think and create. I do get shopping anxiety though, fear of venturing out to see if the supermarket has any of the things I need. You just have to rip off the band aid and go for it.… Continue reading My Art Journaling Journey begins…

Where it all began

So we are currently in lockdown here in the UK due to the Corona virus/COVID19. What better time to get some stamping done. I have been thinking for a while of starting a YouTube channel or at least recording my creations in a more streamlined way. So today I thought I'd share what I plan… Continue reading Where it all began

Back to basics, clean and simple

I have been busy with various work commitments so have neglected my dear blog but the good news is I have been crafting. I love clean and simple designs. The current trend of covering everything with layers and layers of paint or ink stresses me out. Give me white space any day. These cards are… Continue reading Back to basics, clean and simple

Birthday Cake, Gin and Gelato

September has been a busy month for me, my daughter and I both have birthdays this month and we treated ourselves with a trip to London which involved several gin bars, the Sky Garden, dinner, cake and to top it off, Hamilton!! We had a fantastic day, the sun was shining and it was good… Continue reading Birthday Cake, Gin and Gelato

Stamping and Celebrating

Hubby and I are celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary this weekend! Who would have thought we’d make it this far? We have worked hard to stay together and have a lot to be thankful for, a nice home, two beautiful, successful children, (one is estranged but the other more than makes up for that) and… Continue reading Stamping and Celebrating

Out of Chaos comes Creativity

I keep meaning to sit down and write a blog post but as always life gets in the way and I get distracted by something else. I have however, been doing lots of stamping. The situation on the family fallout is static. My Son has a lot of anger which he is directing at me.… Continue reading Out of Chaos comes Creativity

New Name, New Outlook.

Goodness, it has been two months since I last blogged! It has been an eventful, dramatic and emotional time for me recently and while I have been doing some crafting which has helped, I haven’t been able to face blogging until now. Mexico was everything I expected it to be and more. I’ll say no… Continue reading New Name, New Outlook.

Big Birthday weekend

This weekend we celebrated my Son's 30th and my Mother-in-Law's 90th birthdays. We had a lovely meal out with family on Friday and a party on Saturday. Here she is with Billy. I was grateful for a free day yesterday especially as the sun was out as I was able to get into the garden… Continue reading Big Birthday weekend

Happy New Year, if a little late!

Where did those two months go! I have realised that I haven't blogged at all this year!! So I have some catching up to do. Christmas was lovely but our main focus thus far this year has been THE WEDDING of the year! My Son is getting married in Mexico next month and preparation for… Continue reading Happy New Year, if a little late!

All done for another year.

Well, that's Christmas done. The Grandkids received an obscene amount of stuff, so much waste at this time of year makes me sad. I cooked dinner was OK, it's all in the timing. Again, too much food to be comfortable with. The highlight was Isabella dressed as Edna Mode from The Incredibles, she also has… Continue reading All done for another year.
