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.

Angle Shades Moth

I have just finished the last page in my latest 12x12 scrapbook album. This makes 8 albums of 60 pages each, so 480 pages of life in the Gregory household since December 2003! Of course this doesn't include all my other albums, but it is the main stay of my scrapping.

This little moth was dozing on a bush outside our house back in May so I just had to put my little Sony Cyber-shot camera's macro ability to the test. As you can see it takes jolly good closeups.

The wooden leaves were part of my cyber hug from Dawn and were just the thing for a moth who happily disguises itself as a leaf.

Best get my new album out now.....Jubilee and Olympic photos await.........BJ

I want your camera! Very, very impressive macro shots. You are one busy scrapbooker. I am truly impressed.

BTW, I just wanted you to know that is NOT modeling clay. It is polymer clay. It must be baked.
