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.

Wow... Is it really that long since I blogged!

18 months... and it seems like yesterday.  It seems quite unreal that so much time can have passed since I have done any real paper crafting. 

My obsessions with drawing and painting took over for a long while, followed by a lot of hard graft trying to get my jungle of a garden to be an oasis of calm (I can dream... it's a long way from that  and somewhere nice to sit (which is a bit more of a reality). I weeded and dug over the whole garden and resowed grass seed so it will be green this year .  Added some plants and now I also have a rockery.

Following that I spent months re-decorating the house, but then was really poorly from the later part of the year and unable to do much at all, in fact I was barely able to look after myself. Thankfully I have really great friends who stepped in and helped me to recover.

I took it easy from then on and a lot of my time has been taken up on Facebook (which some of you will know) where I've shared bits and pieces of my art and journaling and my rekindled passion for crochet.  I thought about blogging a lot but it just seemed too much like hard work, anyway now I am getting lots better, I feel that I want to join you peeps again and catch up with all my lovely blogging pals and all the wonderful creations I have missed. 

Art journaling heals and crochet calms the nerves :)

So here we are and looking forward to good times ahead :)
