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 - Journal Update

Hi Folks, here's an update on my journal as May comes to a close and supposedly Spring with it as we head into June with the hope of a Summer filled with warmth.

First my May calendar pages to show you all I have been faithfully filling them in daily. The scissors show when I gave my boys a hair cut!

Secondly, I updated my tags from strings to ribbons as they fitted much better with the page after I have stuck all the pockets in.

Then to my Summer title page. I used the masking tape technique for the background of this one and just kept adding to it and am really pleased with how it ended up.

Finally my June calendar. Yes - I carved yet another stamp.

I thought a leaf would go with all the wonderful leaves emerging right now.

It got a bit big and doesn't leave me much room for my flower of the month!!

Oops. But I'll make do I'm sure.

I love that you carve your own stamps, you need to go into business and have them produced for sale! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Love the stamp you made. What did you carve it out of? I would like to try it myself!
