No photos......

Been very busy over the last week getting samples ready for a craft night I am doing in a few weeks, but before that I am going to the UK for 10 days so I have to make sure I have everything ready for when I get back. The kits will be for 2 cards, they are both the same just different colour-ways, a gift bag and a countdown to Christmas. I will post photos when I have them all done.

While I am in UK I am going to go to the hobbycrafts show at the NEC for a day, most probably the Friday.

I have also been busy getting pages ready in my art journal so I can take it with me and work on it while I am away. I did a page the other day and just as I was finishing it my other half came in to my craft room and started to read it. Well I was not to sure what he would say but he really got what it was all about. After he finished reading it he said you will have to be careful writing on such a dark colour, but its not really about the reading is it, its more about writing things down. I am so lucky to have him.

I will try to get some photos on here before I go away.

Next two pages

Ok I am back ready to face the world again...... as much as I will ever be that is!
I had a bit of a fright last week and ended up in hospital, but I am almost back to normal now so nothing to worry about.

I have finally scanned pages 3 and 4 of my Soul Journal so here they are.

What do you think? I didn't enjoy this as much as the first two pages but I think I was trying to hard.

I haven't started the next two pages as I haven't got much tape and I don't want to do the writing until I know I can cover it up straight away, silly I know but I would hate to think of anyone reading what is there. Not that I know what I will be writing yet anyway.

Did my first few Christmas cards this week and of course forgot to take a photo before I wrote and sealed them as they are going to Oz. But I loved the technique so I will be doing a lot more the same, so will post when I do them.

I am looking forward to coming back to the UK in a few weeks to see my Mum, I miss her so much, Its not the same just talking on the phone. While I am over I am thinking of going to the NEC for the day to the Hobbycraft show, I haven't made my mind up yet as I am trying to find out if there are any special offers on to make it worth my while. If I know I can save at least the cost of the train fare then I will go but otherwise is it really worth it?

No internet for a week followed by a two day stay in hospital, hows that for an excuse for not blogging.

I will be back in a few days with the next 2 pages from my journal.
