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 #204 - Tokens

Hello there all you WOYWWers and welcome to my desk. I have been doing a few varied things this week.

Some Scrapping of my last birthday back in February.

The May calendar pages in my 12 Months in View journal including the text in a shape challenge.

My Alpha page for The Craft Barn fortnightly Challenge on "A" for April Fools Day.

Cardmaking from my latest craft club using Liquid Pearls.

And I have altered a matchbox to store some tokens of affection from a brilliant new card game I just bought called "Love Letter".

And the eagle eyed amongst you might spot a couple of ATCs I have ready for the 4th anniversary. Having a bit of a pink moment.

Oh and the little A4 Cutting mat, I just bought, is for the craft clubs I am going to, don't want to miss out again.

What a great idea and I am loving your work so off to add to follow
have a lovely evening

Maisie Moonshine said...

Hello again BJ - glad you liked my ATCs - I've only made two as I only had a limited number of co-ordinating gems but (as I've got so much more time than I thought!) I'm thinking of doing some more (same overall design but different bug/colour) if you're interested. If you'd rather have a dragonfly (green) one let me know and I'll save it for you. MMx

Cazzy said...

Hi BJ, three for the price of one today! Happy WOYWW.
The scrap pages and your card almost match, such a pretty colour! I had to look for the alpha project, I see it, clever!
