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 #259 - Harpie

There wasn't much on my desk this morning but having taken a new crafter to our local craft shop this morning, I just had to get a few papers and some blue glitter paste. Well there was a space on my shelf for the latter and you know how it is!

Only crafty projects are my Craft Barn Q&L Challenge for last fortnight's word "Fame" which I blogged here.

Also the little DLP page I promised about my shoe dilemma. Thanks everyone who sympathized with my wide feet issue, I came that close to finding a supplier from our host Julia, but alas the shoe I liked only started at size 4 and guess what I'm 2 1/2 - 3!! So my little page has a background of the Cotton Trader shoes I wear with a stamped image of the sort after court shoe. In my dreams.

OK so my harp isn't on my desk this week but thought you'd like to see me playing it in the garden, plus the Rhododendron and Allium in bloom.

Happy WOYWW everyone. If you are wondering what on earth I am harping on about, go visit Julia's mega blog hop page.

So looking forward to next week's anniversary. ATCs at the ready, one for my partner plus a further 7.

Love your journal page ! I know your shoe dilemma - I have to wear orthotic insoles so girlie shoes are a distant dream for me too ! Ali #6

Happy WOYWW. After seeing your post about your harp, I contacted the lady and enquired. Seriously thinking of getting one myself. I have problems getting comfy shoes, as I have narrow feet and very sore because of the Fibro. I definitely cannot wear heels. Ali x. #34.

I gave up on those high pointy shoes years ago and now comfort is all the go. Love your harp what an amazingly beautiful instrument. Lovely to see a pic of you in your garden strumming.

Hey, look at you with your harp out there in the garden, BJ!!! Brilliant - trust you are still enjoying it all, and the fingers are toughening up!
Great shots this week.
Thanks for visiting and for your prayers for John and I.

Glitter paste. Another product I've never heard of until now. And I swear the way you positioned that harp in the garden, it looked like a statue. It is beautiful. Happy slightly belated WOYWW from #2.

Christine said...

Thank you soooo much for the lovely photos of your harp and you.
Love that glitter paste - well, I would love some, maybe when I get paid next month!!!
I'm up for a swap if you want - ATC that is not harps or glitter!!!
