My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Altered coasters and crafty day

These altered coasters using papers and images from Crafty Individuals are part of some of the things I made recently while sharing some fun crafty time with my friend Chriss , I love these papers and images, they are so pretty and delicate.I didn't photograph the second one very well...oooops but you get the idea :)
Now what I like about sharing crafty time with Chriss is that we just get totally stuck in and like myself she is really laid back and doesn't give a monkeys about the mess we make and boy do we make a
Chriss hasn't seen these pics yet... but she did give me permission to take them.... ooooer looking at them now it's a wonder we could find ourselves in among this lot...ROFL
This was the beginning of my part of the mess AND my workspace which grew threefold as time went on, I just can't seem to work at a table or standing up so the floorspace really gets a hammering, I put things down and can't find them and spend most of my time looking for things I'm sat
We obviously needed sustenance to keep our strength up for our crafting and apart from the usual pile of chocolate and snacky things that we fill our ample tummy's with... Chriss does make a real effort in making me feel welcome and usually cooks something for us, so we were sharing a cheese and tomato pizza and a pepperoni one............except........we were so involved in what we were doing that unfortunately we forgot about the first one and eerrrrrm it got slightly cindered..rofl We still ate it though... can't be wasting good food can we!!
This is a sneaky peek at what Chriss was making... it's totally gorgeous...I wanted to hide it in my bag and do a runner but I think she would have caught me before I got to the car. Audrey Hepburn is one of my favourite actresses and I was really jealous of Chriss's DG who is going to get to display this loveliness in her room.(ok I know that's not nice but I can't help
If you wanna see the rest of this stunning creation go pop by Chriss' blog ... it really is divine.
Okay sorry for the loooooonnnnng post but well sometimes when I get going I just can't stop :) Those of you who have spoken to me on the phone will understand.... eh Cos my mouth runs just as fast as my mind :)
Have a great day everyone...
Chris xx
