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.

WOYWW #256 - More Kitchen Chemistry

My Kitchen Chemistry course takes up my time at the beginning of the week, so any crafting seems to be resigned to the weekend at the moment, when I finally did my April Timmy Tag, HERE.

Desk has my experiment photos ready to be put in my notebook. Isn't it great how you can take photos and print them off almost instantly these days. Quite a difference to when I was in school.

The magazine freebie stamps I got last week went to finish off my journal page and were used for a scrappage too. HERE

Also I received my giveaway journal from Claire, love it.

So yes this is the weekly, "show your desk to all" and have a blog hop around the world looking at what everyone else has been doing hosted by the lovely Julia at WOYWW.

Beautiful journal page and wonderful to be able to use a freebie on a number of projects. Your desk looks so colourful and so very organised.

Not the "fizz" produced by last week's experiment, but a fun experiment, none-the-less. Had to laugh at the comment about when you were in school. When I was in school, we wrote everything by hand, and took paper and pencil tests. Today, nearly all students have laptops and take computer generated tests. Have a great week and have a happy WOYWW from # 2.

Hi BJ, love the finished journal page and your Timmy Tag too - gorgeous colours and the butterfly is stunning. Had to get that magazine when I read all the comments about it, and have even used one of the stamps in the set already with plans to use the others soon. You do seem to be enjoying the chemistry course and yes, it is good that we have all this amazing technology at our fingertips today. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #70

love your journal pages. I agree about the photos, and remember how film was left in the camera for ever to finish. Photos were expensive and so special.
Yours look great
happy journaling
