About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Finding Fun - Houses

 Week 2 of Finding Fun and the theme is houses. I think my AJ page speaks for itself here (if you click on it, it should enlarge). I moved around alot as a child so this is a special house to me as we have been here since 1999.
Used my new Tim Holtz Spring inkpads for my page and had my first doodle too.

Just had to add my son's Bird House which he made in Technology Class in School last month. His Dad spray varnished it and put it up last night, it is so cute.
We all love the birds in our garden and hope they will come to live in the little house. My son made 2 Robin boxes a while back and we definitely have Robins in one this year.

Big thanks to the blogger who mentioned using her typewriter as I got my husband to find mine from the loft and used that for my page too. It has a new lease of life now.

Your house page is lovely - and sentimental. Love the typewriting font you've used and the aged look it has.

Your son's bird house is fab! Hope it gets some feathery residents soon.

Thanks for your lovely comments on my AB xx

What a great page, so meaningful as well...and your son's birdhouse fits perfectly in with this. Hope you have lots of visitors to it.

Love your page BJ. The doodling is really fab - I always like this when people do it. How lovely to read your thoughts about your very pretty house. I too moved around quite a bit as a child and since so I know what it means to be in one place for a longer time. We've been here since 2003 and I've loved every minute.

The birdbox is gorgeous - you are very lucky to have a talented son - is he going to become an artist too??!!

Quite frankly, if it was big enough I'd like to live in that bird house! I think it would cheer me up every time I went outside! I hope you get some new tenants soon.
