About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in 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 usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

WOYWW #193 - Colourful

Hi all you WOYWWers out there and all newbies and all passers by. Here's my little desk today. Been busy with my A to Z of Me Challenge Journal. It is a daily challenge throughout February, so keeping me on my toes somewhat.

I also managed to fit in my February Timmy Tag at the weekend and the pink tag is one I just received in a SWAP, isn't it gorgeous?

The foil tray still has the salt I used for one of the daily challenges which I was so taken by, I did the journal page similar and also this sympathy card.

As you can also see my little matchbox is still pending but not required for a SWAP until next month. Still have to make my hubby an anniversary card for the end of this month and do a scrapppage for UKPC too. Ho Hum.

Happy WOYWW everyone and please leave your number so I can get visit your desk more easily. Tend to skip over those who forget if I am pushed for time.

An a to z journal is such a great idea, and your pages are wonderful, so bright and cheery. Your sympathy card is lovely too, just a shame we ever have to make such a card.
