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.

Christmas Fairy Doll

When I was about 6yrs old my mother made a fairy outfit for a doll she’d bought which had come in a yellow mac and wellies. It was a surprise for me and she left it next to my bed on Christmas morning.

She was dressed in a blue and green tutu with a silver crocheted crown and silver wings. I was told she’d flown in through the window.
Apparently, sometime later, I found the mac and wellies and realised that Mum had made her and she hadn’t flown in through the window after all!
But I adored my fairy doll all the same.

Awe that's a beautiful page sweetie. I love the sentiment and fab memory behind its creation, lol I still have a few treasured childhood toys too, much loved and a little worn around the edges but still going strong bless them.
Merry Christmas honey, huge huggles x x x x
