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.

Sunday 1 December 2013

First Sunday in Advent.

I opened the first of my Advent Swap parcels today and got a super Psalms Calendar and Diary, some chocolate and 6 little envelopes to tide me over to the second Sunday in Advent.

I popped the little envelopes in the pocket Advent wall hanging as I haven't got anything for it myself this year.

Although I have put some of the Christmas ornaments in there to be hung on the tree each day.

Advent means "coming" and is a time for preparation. The first candle of Advent reminds us of God's people, who in every age, watch for his coming.
