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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. 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!
