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 #197 - 12 Months - Tag

Well hello again all you WOYWWers and welcome to my desk. Pop over to Julia's place for even more crafty desks to peruse.

The 12 Months in View Challenge has got off to a great start. We have had lots of varied challenges so far. We are taking a monthly photo and doing a calendar pagejournal entries, collage, a little "zine" (standing up at the back of the shot) and the latest is to make a tag out of bits and bobs.

So hence my desk with the bits and bobs and here's the finished altered "Cotton Traders" tag.

Couldn't resist another photo of my back garden as now it is covered in a blanket of snow AGAIN! And I thought Spring was here - silly me!

What a difference a day makes!

WOW you are early! Wish I could have the same ability but I procrastinate way too much! Love the tag! The buzzing be is so cute! Two totally different views of your garden...I like the green one best! :-) Vickie

I'm obviously not playing in WoyWW this week, but wanted to drop by since you probably thought I had forgotten you. Not the case, just a case of not feeling well.

You have one incredible back yard. I was super impressed, although I sure felt bad for the poor flowers that wilted under the frost and snow. I'd hate to have THAT clean-up. But I loved the bird house and feeders. Seems you keep them right outside your windows, too.

Hi BJ,

Love your tag with the adorable bee buzzing about. We really need some snow here. But I'm like you - ready for spring!

Thanks for noticing my win anyway!! Yes, tim does movers and shapers for the leaves and florals, yes they are smaller versions of 2 of the big ones, respectively.

Lovely tag, makes me think of summer ... if it ever arrives! Can't believe you have snow again! We managed to miss it in Herts, but it was still bloomin' cold! Thanks for sharing and Happy Woyww

Great bee tag BJ! The weather is so unperdictable here right now too. Poured rain last Friday, with snow falling in the near by mountains, then today it is supposed to hit 80'

You're not kidding! Who would have thought that more snow could have been on the way? We haven't had any here but it has been bitter....I was on playground duty yesterday and it was almost too cold to breathe!
Love the tags btw!
