Thanks for popping in. One day at a time things are improving here, but I think it will take time. Quote for the day?
It takes as long as it takes.
I was thinking about that, and you and the SHAC. And I thought about how proficient we all got at drawing and colouring – primarily because we applied ourselves to those arty skill sets every single day. We couldn’t see the progress day by day, but because we stuck together and stuck at it, week after week, month after month, didn’t we get good?? I am really looking forward to getting back into that learning groove again ; just give me a little time to mend x x x you know I’m getting better when I asked Paul this morning to please put together a little box of drawing things to bring in when he visits tomorrow! Right, dear SHAC friends, what 7 things do you thing I asked for? Have a think and tell me below! Maybe I’ve forgotten something! Let’s see if we all remember our SHAC tools of the trade…
Here’s something else I want to shine a light on, because I think you’ll love these designs and the 3 kiss projects I did.
Last year we launched the KISS range – Keep It Simple S……… stamps, stencils, stash etc with designs illustrated by our formidable Tina Cox. She has a uniquely fresh and funky style, which just works every time.
The launch coincided with an exclusive promotion in the Create & Craft Club Magazine where I was asked to make and write up 3 projects. I picked my three favourites from the range, of course! Well, now the exclusivity period has lapsed I thought it would be a perfect time to share them with you and send you lots of KISSes. I can’t tell you how much your love and messages and support and good wishes are helping me get through this rough patch.
I asked Paul to put together a sweet bloggy bundle of the three, then I thought we could take a look at each of the sets over the weekend. I hope you like them as much as I do x
They are available at super price – RRP £27.47 – With Love from Barb Special Price £19.97 (plus club discount!)

Here are the 3 cards I created for the magazine, over the next 3 days I will blog the step-by-step projects.

And my darling friend Carron is coming to visit me today – she’s going to wash my hair for me too. That’ll make a world of difference. The good thing about being so ill is the happy feeling when you get better.
There you go. Just met a beautiful Romanian woman, who made my bed and we chatted as she helped me. Is alone here. Came in 2017. I asked her if she was glad she had come. She said it was a better life here than at home, but she misses her parents. I tell you. This health system is held together by people like her.
