Wow where has time gone!

Cannot believe that we are already well into December. Haven't posted for a while as I just haven't got myself organised enough to upload what I have been up to. Last Friday I had a shoulder operation so this week I am trying to carry on with some arting but it is proving hard and tiring. So I am taking it easy and fiddling around with my laptop and photos and trying out new things.

I have managed to resize a photo for my Twitter profile, something that has driven me to distraction in the past. Type one handed quite quickly. Draw, trace and cut a shape on Silhouette Studio, so sitting still may be isn't so bad.

NaNoJouMo Update

Since I started this challenge with myself to actually produce a page a day from the prompts I realise that it is very hard. Although I find myself eagerly awaiting the next prompt, I did try to log on at 8.30am one morning only to realise that due to the time difference the prompt would not be posted until lunchtime here.

I missed day 3 Hopes and Fears as I went to the ICHF at the NEC, so do have to catch up on that one. So here are my efforts.

 This is the canvas board that I took to my daughter's as a house-warming card.
 I made the frogging beaded hanger with a lucet, I used a bottle cap embellishment that I have made a batch of.

Wow wow wow

I first of all sewed the used wipes together on sewing machine. Then trimmed to A4 size and attached each end of them to a sheet of A4 paper. Placed in printer and this is the result!
Going to use as background for Day 11-Why Can't I, oh I just did!

Day 10 and misc faces

On this page I used collage, stamps, neocolour 2 crayons, acrylic paint , a tree mask and pens.
This next page was inspired by DEDE Inkwell on Ustream.
I need to practice and practice!

The next face was inspired by Comfortableshoestud on YouTube, Auto Drawing with an ink pen and filling in with watercolour crayons.
One 'Crazy Lady'
About to start work on a canvas to give to my daugter as a New Home card/picture.

First Post on new blog site

Just trying this out to see if I can use this blog site more easily than my old one! So far so good! Day 6 page for NaNoJouMo
Well uploading Day 7 not going so well.
Are here we have it! Very different colours for me, I just opened my Neocolors and closed my eyes and picked the colours and went with them. I had written the prompt on a piece of book paper so decided to just stick that in. I used Positive Affirmations as my theme.

Day 8, Randomly went through my collage stuff and my old lists, I am a great list maker!there is a quote included from Mahatma Gandhi that I thought appropriate " The future depends on what we do in the present".

I am really enjoying myself and seem to be getting other things done too!
Look forward to sharing more pages.
Happy journalling
