About Me

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.

The Washi Tape Addiction!

I have recently joined the Facebook group my 2014's challenge called "The Documented Life Project". It is all about Art Journalling and Daily Planners and Washi Tape.

I had a few reels of Washi which I store on jailer rings (have requested a few more rings for Christmas).

Then it was mentioned on the group that Staples had some for 49p each and a 3 for 2 offer to boot, could I resist? I think not. I got all the designs except the skyline one - shame as that was a nice one so no wonder it was sold out.

So, finding it hard waiting for my book (an Ikea notebook) for Christmas to use my washi, I have done my latest 12 Months in View tag with Washi tape. I even made the tie from 2 washi tapes stuck back to back. I added a couple of card stickers I'd received in an advent gift to finish it off.

Oh and as I seem to have a serious lack of purple washi in my collection I have added some to my latest craft order, although not sure from the web photos if the set was mainly pink or purple, but hey ho.

Happy sigh!

I'm a crafter that's never used "Washi tape".Is it just a brand name for a decorative tape I see at craft stores?Maybe I should try some after Christmas.A very Merry Christmas to You-Blessings Denise

It is a bit of an addiction, isn't it? I store mine in a ziploc baggie.
