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.

TAG give-away

There's nothing quite like...... crafting with a buddy.  My Pal Chriss has been staying with me for a couple of weeks and we have both re-discovered our crafting mojo :)
Cutting, stamping, pasting, doodling have all been on the agenda and such fun we've had.  Tags have mostly been the order of the day for me and I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed making them.  I'm still missing drawing but I need new specs to do that.... I WILL get myself to the opticians soon... but I can manage to cut things out fairly well without them so I've still managed to play.

I've made quite a few tags so I thought it would be nice to have a little give-away so that you can share in the fun.  Leave a comment on this post to be included in the draw  to win this double sided tag and it could soon be winging it's way to your house.  I hope you like it and thanks for visiting :)

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 :)
