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, DĂ©copatch, 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.

WOYWW #184 - Goodies

Hi there all you WOYWWers, how are Christmas preparations going? I have managed to post all the cards and parcels which needed posting but not done much crafting as a result. I have my son off school poorly too which doesn't leave me in a crafting mood either.

What I have done is lay out my photos of the Torch Relay back in July. I have made a card for my Uncle's 90th and my son's 14th which are both on 21st December!

As for the goodies, I have received my Christmas SWAP card from Sandee in the USA, took a while to get here! She just had to adorn her tree with WOYWW, how cool is that? I have got my SWAP from Elizabeth way up in Scotland and a little bag of crafty goodness too. And my Journal awaits the tags from this second week of Advent.

Not all that Christmassy I know but there you go.
Oh and please leave your number so I can get back to you.

I take a few days away from my computer, and you not only start Advent, you also finish your AB cover, work on tags, nurse a sick son, and create all kinds of cards. I can't keep up!!

Way to go with the advent calendar. I'm off to see if I've missed anything on your AB cover, too.

You seem to have managed a lot, even if you say you're not crafting... not made it to the charity shop yet, somehow doubt it will happen any time soon!!! Hope your son is better soon. Helen, 4

Hi BJ,

That's great that you're still doing layouts during this busy time of year. The only craft I've done is knit on the baby blanket.... hence not joining in this week.

Wanted to stop by and say hello, though, and see what you've been up to.

Hope your lad is up and better very soon! There's so much going around isn't there??
And I liked saying Bollards too :)
Hugs, LLJ #27 xx
