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 #257 - Lots of Birds

Just a long shot of my craftcorner this week as not wishing to give too much away on the WOYWW ATC front.

I had quite a few pending projects to sort out,and ended up combining a few of them.
1) WOYWW anniversary ATCs
2) UKPC swap - theme Indigo
3) craft club demonstration - using inks

I started with some blue/Indigo ATCs then tried the green colourway, then purple/pink and lastly orange. So I have ended up with 8 ATCs to SWAP at the end of the month and will have even more after I do my club demo on 12th.

One other crafty project this week was the Craft Barn Q&L Challenge on Knowledge where I cut up and used a previously done piece to get it in my journal.

Oh and for the garden followers, here is our Wisteria in full bloom for May.

Sp come and join in the mega blog hop called WOYWW hosted by Julia.

Love the photos of the garden. Keep them coming, please.

You asked if those backs were for my WOYWW 5 ATCs. I asked you two weeks ago if you were going to the crop. When I didn't get an answer TWICE, I gave up. Yes, they are for the swap, and they are all gone and in the hands of the recipient. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Hi BJ. Gorgeous shot of the wisteria. I must get out and photograph our ceanothus. Enormously blue this year - best we have had it, and John is missing it as he is still in Glan Clwyd Hospital. I like your journal page. Well done.
Have a special week. God bless you.

No BJ, your brain has NOT turned to mush. And you were right on the money about Julia. But, I've said too much already, so mum's the word until the big day, please.

Hi BJ,

Great experimentation with colors. I really wish I had a space where I can leave everything out. Oh well, I'll have to live with what I have.

I might need to move to the UK in retirement. I love the wisteria and the rest of your yard.

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (17)

Awfully late getting round to visiting, this week seems to have flown by.That piece with the dragonflies is gorgeous, and your wisteria is beautiful.
