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…

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…

#4 This too shall pass.

#4 This too shall pass.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Had a serious dentist session today. Was it at 2.30? Don’t even go there. (Toothurty big time). I feel like I’ve done 3 rounds with Henry Cooper. What a Brut! Pardon the pun. I do hope I feel better quickly! I’ve got so many boxes to tick, and there’s no time scheduled for illness or face ache! Detect the sarcasm? I am laughing at myself. A very appropriate quote springs to mind. Quote #4…

Word of the day: KINDNESS.

Word of the day: KINDNESS.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. First day back in the office. It was good to see the team, catch up with them, have a few meetings, share some ideas, make a few new plans. They’re a kind bunch at Clarity. Just straight forward good people. Each and every one of them has their own personal struggles, family issues, ups and downs, illness – just like everybody else. So we travel gently and we support each other. We’re all in…

If it be so be it

If it be so be it

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Second day of the year, the sun is shining, and all is calm. Dave‘s gone to work to warm up the polymer, ready for stamp production tomorrow, and I have been making a bloggy plan for the year – and a project with a quote for today! I did start spinning earlier. Started running from one thing to another, panicking about all the things that need doing at work, and then caught myself getting…

Dream Believe Hope

Dream Believe Hope

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Had a hankering to make something arty, after cleaning up the mess a certain cat with a dodgy leg made today (Grrrr. Little git. I know he’s bored because he can’t go outside yet, but I really hadn’t expected to spend half a day mopping up after him!). Want to know the best bit? He actually HID behind his brother when I came flying down the stairs to find him!! Honestly, it’s like having…

A Sunday Step by Step…

A Sunday Step by Step…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Despite the best intentions to blog daily – or at least more regularly – Life is overwhelming, and the days just seems to fly by. Everybody has got something going on, everybody is carrying a load, I know that. This is why I choose to use the blog and the SHAC for positive and creative distraction, rather than a platform to unload my personal problems. Suffice it to say I, like you, have them,…

…Warm Woollen Mittens…

…Warm Woollen Mittens…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Got a torch?! It gets dark so much earlier now, as we edge our way through November, doesn’t it? Much colder too. Whilst our British Autumn colours are beautifully breathtaking, the damp chill that accompanies this month is less pleasant. The torrential rains down here in the Southeast have slowed down for today at least, so Mother Earth can absorb some of the floodwaters. It’s definitely time to put away those flip flops and…

Make Art Not War – A step by step project.

Make Art Not War – A step by step project.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. First of all, apologies. Technology wasn’t kind to us last night. The Craftalong with Linda and Paul had to be abandoned. Thank you to both for valiantly trying to persevere though! To be repeated very soon. Details to follow x Ah well. These things are small things in the bigger picture. AND. More of you will have the plates by the time we go again! We are going as fast as we can, and…
