I feel that it is really important to review ones shopping habits and eating habits regularly and I am particularly enjoying going back to basics and preparing good food from scratch.
I am still making and using journals of all descriptions, sewing, knitting and crocheting. I have taken up needle felting again and also making pompoms for my granddaughter to play with.
Ailsa is a great inspiration for making fairies and peg dolls. I really must post some photos, watch this space.
Be blessed till next time,

It's that time of year when there are fixed deadlines to meet. December 1st,the beginning of advent.
I decorated 24 jolly dolly pegs only to find that they are too heavy for my final project. So back to drawing board- 24 bottle caps waiting for resin to be poured and brooch backs to be glued on. I have also been busy making Christmas presents. Can't she you those until they have been given. Don't want to spoil the surprise!
Stay crafty love Hannah.

Very excited as yesterday I went on my first guerrilla art mission. I made paper eggs and abandoned them in a space near me. I was inspired to do this by Sherry. She used bleeding tissue method I used my gelli plate prints.
It was a great feeling to think they will be found and treasured,or even tossed in the bin. At least someone else shared them briefly.
See you soon
Love Hannah x

I used Creative Memories plain card as the base, I stamped red hearts in maroon archival ink on to dictionary pages. I chose the love section just because. I used a zig zag stitch to attach them to a piece of hidden white card to make them seem as if they are just stitched and mounted them on to the card with foam. I also used a piece of bias tape, lace and butchers twine. The words are from Tim Holtz Chitchat collection and the dictionary page.
If I posted more often I would not have to rack my brain as to what I have been up to. I have come to the conclusion that it takes time to become ORGANISED and I am still getting to grips with it. I have to accept that the small steps and systems I implement now and more IMPORTANTLY stick to, will make it easier in future to be more organised.
So I am going to add another page to my blog called Organisation, to enable me to share tips that I have learnt and am using. Of course Art and Craft are my main passion and I figure the more organised I am in other areas of my life the more time I have to enjoy my passion!
The blogs I enjoy reading have lots of threads and links so I am aiming for that too.
I would love it if you choose to follow along with me on my journey of discovery and that you will find something useful.
See you again soon
