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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

WOYWW #309 - Blast from the Past!

Gosh, it has been about 9 months since I came to visit you all!

Looking at my messy desk (so unusual for me)
I thought you'd all like to see that I too can get into a pickle.

My desk still displays the punched out shapes from LAST WEEK'S craft workshop! Oh My!

The craft workshop was themed on different ways of using punched shapes, here's their examples.

I have just made up a 2nd birthday card for my Godson's daughter with some of the ice-cream shapes. I made a couple of owl cards at the workshop last week. So not very adventurous really.

Here's the presents I got and them all wrapped up - just waiting for the glitter glue to dry before I pop to the post office.

Oh and in case you are all wondering what I have been up to, I have been doing a lot of harp practice. I posted a video of me playing "Charlotte In Spring" here.

My husband recorded me again https://soundcloud.com/thechrisgregory/billy-playing-her-welsh-harp-next-to-the-garden-door-charlotte-in-spring-by-fiona-clifton-welker

Happy WOYWW everyone.

I can't believe you're here today.
I was only thinking about you yesterday when I saw my poor saxophone which has been packed away in it's case for months. Unfortunately, family stuff has meant I have had to spread myself a bit thinly.
So pleased to see you back. Happy woyww, Angela x 23

I don't visit as much as I'd like BJ... but as long as we get there now and again I suppose that's all that matters.
Busy desk with lots of lovely work.
Happy WOYWW to you

Hey there! It's great to see you on the desks again :-). And I can't think of a better reason to be away than learning a new instrument. You sound great, by the way..very impressive. The harp has a beautiful tone!
