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.

12 Months in View - Bluebell MAD

Here are some more shots of the Bluebells from the garden.

I think they are the English variety but only time will tell as the flowers open and the heads droop (hopefully).

The pollen looks decidedly creamy-white and I needed to turn the bell upwards for the close-up, both good signs of the English variety.

The Origami bluebell I made earlier in the week was a little large to say the least!

So I cut the usual sized origami paper into 4 and made smaller bells - much better. Just had to add some stamens and wire them onto some thicker wire I found in the shed!

Certainly having a bit of a Bluebell MAD Bank Holiday today!
