Let’s play dress ups!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. When was the last time you bought a new outfit for going out? Been a while if you’re like me! Apart from TV shows and the SHACK Shac, nobody sees me! And even then, I could be wearing pyjama bottoms – you only ever see the top half! That said, I am glad and grateful to have those reasons for getting my make up on and making an effort most days. I honestly don’t…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Change is a-coming. You can feel it in the weather today. The temperature dropped and the clouds rolled in. Time to put a jumper on, maybe put the flip flops and sandals away. Thought I’d make some simple stencil art this evening, to reflect the shift in the weather patterns – and in our lives again. It seems we are hitting a stormy patch again, and while the birds fly away to warmer climes,…

WIll have a fresh look at it tomorrow morning. But before I collapse in front of the box, let me post a simple project I…

Keep Calm and Carry on Crafting!

Hi there. Hope you’re okay. Spoke to a friend on the phone who is self-isolating this morning. No no no. He’s not self-isolating this morning! I spoke to him this morning! The English language is a minefield, innit! He’s a journalist, so he’s has been in contact with people who have been in contact with – and so on. He said we – you and I – are lucky that we have our crafting, that we have our art. He…
