You are stronger than you think.

You are stronger than you think.

Thanks for popping in. Strength is the word of the day. It really is surprising how strong we are, you know. How resilient we are. How much we can handle. Just got to keep a calm head on and keep ticking boxes. They say God only gives you as much as you can handle. Well, he evidently has a lot of confidence in Dave! So much piling up at work, but Dave just keeps his eye on the road ahead….

You Light up my Life

You Light up my Life

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Went walking in the woods with Grace this morning. Slid around on the ice and had quite a giggle. Blue skies and crisp underfoot – apart from the muddy slosh underneath the trees! A walk out in the fresh, wintery air is certainly good for the soul. Whatever is going on in life, there’s got to be time for a leisurely walk with your daughter, eh? She lights up my life Now I’m sitting…

A walk in the country –

A walk in the country –

Hi there Thanks for popping in. There’s nothing quite like a walk in the countryside for clearing the head, and when the sun is shining, I declare it is better than anything else. Linda has created these beautiful designs, which are perfect – and not weather dependent either! Paul launched these as a One Day Special on Create & Craft tonight at 6pm. Oh boy! They flew out the door! Which only serves to underscore that our groovi parchment friends…

Get out of your Dandelion head…

Get out of your Dandelion head…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a busy day today, ticking lots of boxes and putting things in place for Dad’s celebration send off. So much to consider, so much to think about. Couldn’t sit still this afternoon either. Blitzed the kitchen, made it all lovely. And now I feel the need to go out and make some art with last week’s Design of the Week Abstract Dandelions stampset, before the price changes and a new design takes…

# 15 Keep It Simple…

# 15 Keep It Simple…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Sunny day, blue skies here in the southeast of England. Calm head. A morning of pottery does that. I signed up for a very specific kind of Sunday pottery class many weeks ago, and today was Day 1. Five Sundays in a row. The course title is Architectural Ceramics, so you can imagine it’s all about structure, building, lines, curves. Less about function, more about shape. That’s the kind of art I have been…

I with you, and you with me.

I with you, and you with me.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Good day today. Very good day. Spent it with my dear friend Carron. She’s a real diamond. She lost her beautiful Mum during lockdown. Terrible circumstances really, by comparison. But she was able to take her experience, compassion and love, and help me get to grips with today today. You know, we chatted, we laughed, we cried, we laughed a bit more, we sighed and then we hugged each other. It was the best…

Doovayday

Doovayday

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s been a bit of a Duvet Day today. Just went with how I felt, which was pretty low and lousy. So just kept crawling back in under the eiderdown. Cleaned a bit, had a kip, pottered a bit, lay down again, made necessary phone calls, went back to bed. And that’s ok. Not something I have EVER done, but hey. Nothing feels right today; just don’t know where to turn or what to…
