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 more recently Pokémon Go. I'm a Preschool Practitioner and I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Dec the Halls



I received this lovely felt fox banner from a friend.

He is definitely deccing the hall along with one of my crocheted robins.












My newly décopatched reindeer is posing on my tree.


Reindeer and Scrapping

Managed to get back into my scrapbooking. I had the last lot of photos printed yonks ago, for April through to August this year.

Back in April/May time I did my first FREE on-line course with Futurelearn - Kitchen Chemistry, this is some of what I got up to.

I took a couple of photos of my harp in the garden in May.

The caterpillar was seen in August but fitted on this page.



Then there's my desk yesterday after raiding Hobby Craft.













I love a bit of décopatch to while away the time so I just had to cover him today.

I didn't have any "natural" type papers so just went with my favourite.

I might add a few adornments but for now he is drying.

Poinsettia

I used my poinsettia die for my last craft club this year, then I just had to give it a go with a non Christmas colour and created a sunflower!

DLP

My Documented Life Project (DLP) book is now nearly full.














Can't say I followed all the DLP prompts, I gave up on most yearly challenges back in May/June time, but I have managed to fill my little diary one way or another.

I have mainly made the last few pages like little Christmas Cards of designs I did this year.
However I have followed the Journal 52 prompt of "Sparkle and Shine" this week.

I seem to have a thing for BIRDS!



Here are my latest additions to the birdie flock!

Then some owls

Then some robins - work in progress here trying to make up the pattern myself!!
