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.

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.
