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.

Pilgrim Harps

What else do you do on your 16th wedding anniversary but go to visit Pilgrim Harps! I guess I was slightly biased as I got a small folk harp a fortnight ago for my 50th and well, I have been bitten by the bug...

I think the 47 string orchestral ones are a bit too big for me, but the smaller 34 string lever ones feel just right. Although the one I have has only 19 strings which I am pointing out in the photo below!

My husband has hold of a soundboard here. He is well into sound so quite appropriate.

Seeing the workshop and the guys making the harps was just delightful. All deep in the Surrey countryside on a sunny day, coming home via the scenic route and we even went up Harps Oak Lane! 

Certainly a trip to remember.
