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.

52 Weeks - Week #02

Just getting to grips with all my challenges for this year and have decided to try and incorporate as many as I can in my Journal for this year. It has 64 pages, so 63 double spreads, so happily one double spread a week for the 52 weeks, with 11 spare to play with.

Yearly Challenges are:- 52 Weeks of Psalms; Journal 52; The Craft Barn

I am loving the free printout cards from the Psalms challenge and have made a pocket and tag template out of acetate so I can make one easily each week, to put the concertina cards into.

The word prompt from Psalm 3 which I have based my page on is Peace.

I have stuck the shield from the printout on the back of my tag

The Journal 52 prompt is, "Somewhere, A Simple Place". Well my place is my garden where I can watch the birds and listen to their song.

My Craft Barn word is "Smile" and you can't but smile when you see and hear the birds. The quote is from Mother Teresa.
