Wednesday, 21 November 2012


As you can see I have been tweeking my blog! Keith helped me yesterday with some of the basics so now I am trying to carryout the changes.Not sure I'm totally happy but feel that it looks better than it was. Hopefully a bit more reflective of my personality and art????

Since I discovered the joys of online communication with fellow artists and crafters my confidence to have a go has increased enormously. Whether it's videoing, blogging, tweeting and now instagram-ing I would rather have something out there than wait until I get it perfect I have made that mistake too many times in my life.'Embrace Imperfection' has become my new motto.

Tapes, Travel and Technology

I really am struggling with technology, trying to find the right download etc, please reassure me I am not the only one!

Hopefully some time next week you may notice a difference to the look of my blog, my daughter's boyfriend is a whizz with technology and he has agreed to help me.

As you can see I have been playing and with some good results I think.

I am really looking forward to my Romanian trip even though I know that it going to be a stressful and emotional trip. If I can manage to I will blog the completion of my travel journal so you can all see for yourselves what I get up to.

Just my travel insurance to sort out, thankfully someone else sorted out the flights, I just paid the money.

Okay enough, keep crafting and have fun.

Wow what a day, what a workshop

An early start for a Sunday, the alarm went off at 6.30am. I didn't exactly leap out of bed even thought I was really excited. The reason I was off to The Stamp Attic in Wantage to attend a Kate Crane journalling workshop.

My lovely hubby agreed to drive me there even though I probably could have managed the 154 mile round trip. I was relieved he did because it snowed heavily on the Cotswolds and we went through a few floods too.

The trusty sat nav took us almost to the door, well it would have been difficult because it was down an alleyway behind Costa.

I said 'bye' to hubby and Louis our puppy and clutching my journalling kit braved the elements to join the workshop.

I had such fun getting inky using Dylusions spray inks, to make a Year Journal from scratch. I loved Kate's laid back teaching style and enjoyed the company of fellow art journallers. Oh and of course my shopping spree.

The day ended all too soon and we made our way home to Hereford.
