About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Poppy & Gratitude...

The flower of the month for November on 12 Months in View is the Poppy. I was hoping it would be as I love poppies. I printed off the poppy picture to colour in and stuck it on my November Calendar page and added the first verse of  "In Flanders Field" around it.

I have also joined in this year's November Attitude of Gratitude Challenge but instead of the daily crafting, like I did last year, I am journaling my gratitudes on an APP for my new Nexus 7 tablet.






Here are screenshots of the calendar and list pages to give you an idea what I am doing. You can associate photographs with each gratitude too which was why I chose this APP.









Still working on how to best do things on my "new" tablet so it is a work in progress!

Oh I best add the craft stall items which I mentioned on the 2nd's entry. I décopatched two little boxes and decorated the lids, plus I made a little felt bird. I have another felt bird cut out ready to sew in craft club tomorrow night too.








The sheep can be found on my previous post HERE.


And whilst I am at it, here are the 2 Christmas decorations I made at yet another craft club last week. I got to use a melt pot for the first time too, but not tempted to add one to my Christmas list just yet!

Poppies are very dear to my heart at this time of the year. Like a lot of people I had a relative who died at Flanders, he was only 17. You have done a lovely tribute BJ. I am still thinking on the Attitude of Gratitude and wondering if I have the time :-D xxx
