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 #208 - 4th Anniversary Blog Hop

Horrah for the WOYWW 4th Anniversary. I have made some ATCs and have 5 extras if you are interested, Butterflies or Ballerinas are the theme of the day for me. I popped them here if you wish to have a look.

This week I have been working on my 12 Months in View Journal to finish up Spring as would you know Summer is supposed to start next week! I have started on Summer and made another stamp for my June calendar page - a leaf this time.

I have done my next page for the Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn and have done Floral Dance for the "F" with a twist as Father's Day wasn't within the remit!

Oh and last but certainly not least I have made the draw for the yellow spoon from last week. I had 28 comments and put them all in the draw and out popped 505whimsygirl/Kay, Looks like the yellow spoon will be winging its way over the pond, please send me your snail mail address Kay, my e-mail is on my profile.

My goodness girl...you have had a busy week. You have been busy creating up a storm and that makes for a perfect week, doesn't it?

SueH said...

It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

Well, that’s certainly a nice bright table. Your journal looks to be coming along very nicely.

Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
Happy Crafting!
