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 #210 - Cards Cards Cards!

Here's my desk for the weekly WOYWW blog hop hosted by the wonderful Julia, do pop over to her place to have a look.

I've received 4 more ATCs from the anniversary SWAP. Top left from Maisie Moonshine, bottom Right from Elizabeth and finally, the other two, from my SWAP partner Shozzy (who sent me a bonus one for waiting too). They are all lovely, thank you ladies.

There is also the reverse of my coronation tag and its pocket. I am using the bottom drawer of my little décopatched set of drawers for bits and bobs - very useful. I'm just about managing to fill in my June calendar too. Oh and top left is the flyer for the 2013 Photographic Scavenger Hunt which I have started here.

But mainly my desk is littered with cards, cards cards! What with all these craft clubs I have recently started going to I am accumulating loads of cards! I already had a shoebox full as well! Good job I was able to make my first Christmas one of the year this week. Perhaps I need to just focus on making Christmas ones at club really - might be difficult! I did manage to revamp a couple of celebration to sympathy cards yesterday, quite ironic really but my new dove die helped.

Bit late today as my husband decided to start backing up the main computer last night so I couldn't access my photographs! Not feeling great either - "that time" you know!!!

Hi BJ, love the cards, cards, cards on your desk today :) Apparently Christmas begins next week in craft land so you could be right about making Christmas cards from now :)) I've enjoyed seeing all the ATCs people have received over the last couple of weeks - all so different but all great wee works of art. Hope you are soon feeling better. Hope, too, that you've had a happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #78

I think it's good to make a few Christmas cards year round, that way you can be ready to mail out without too much stress. Sure hope you are feeling better soon. Waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ ( #16 )

Hi BJ, sorry to hear you're not feeling too great. Love your cards and the dove die, maybe in between all your crafty commitments and clubs you could get a stand at a craft fair to sell them?lol More gorgeous ATC's on your desk this week. Hope you feel better soon.
Happy art making
Hugs lottie #143

Hi BJ,

I especially love your Christmas card! All the others are nice too.

I must say thank you again for the spoon! Most of my home is yellow so it fits in quite nicely!! It's on my desk this week amongst some ATCs that I've received.

I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to stop by. Time management wasn't on my side over the weekend.
