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.

Challenge Update

I've been combining my yearly challenges and have just added some heart flaps (DLP week 8) to my heart flap page in my little diary.

I made a tip-in recycled collage with magazine pieces (DLP week 9) and bits and bobs I have collected or were left over on my desk.

The smiley face was on a Happy Mail package I received last month.

My harp page was for the "When I grow Up" prompt (J52 week 7).

Our Craft Club was focusing on book pages but I didn't seem to get much inspiration whilst there so came home early.

I used the little scalloped hearts inside my husband's anniversary card.

I used one of the pages for the "Found Poetry" prompt (J52 week 8). I ended up with 3 triplets of words.

Earnest, Frivolous Enjoyment
Puzzled Peculiar Trifles
Wisdom Leaping Summer.

I just need to do my Psalm pages now...

I can't believe what happens when I shut my computer down for a few days. I had SO much catching up to do, includuing seeing your hubby and a soundboard.

You've done an excellent job keeping up with all the challenges. You have even more that I, and I have started to feel a bit overwhelmed. I love your When I grow up page. Sort of true of you, too. Of course, I like the way you mastered the Found Poetry. Great take on that challenge, too. I can't believe how beautiful your pages look, unlike my boring one.
