Vintage finds...

It's always rewarding when you stumble across those finds, especially vintage ones. Recently I've found a lovely box of vintage stamps, all colours, designs and from all over the world. So much fun to be had with these I think in the months to come, collage, stitch and so forth...
My other fabulous find has been these old vintage photo albums which I stumbled upon in a local charity shop. They may be falling apart somewhat but oh what appeal they have. I cannot wait to get creative with these. What is even more perfect is that they are just what is needed for the online course I enrolled on this year. You may remember ages ago now that I did this online course and made my first handmade journal (scroll down to see it). Well this year I have enrolled on Mary Ann Moss's course entitled Full Tilt Boogie (such a great name!) and cannot wait to get going with it. It is going to be another fabulous creative journey to take part in. What new creative journey are you taking?

It has been a little bit quiet around here lately, but as you can see from these photos I have been whizzing along on my machine creating a wee bird themed item for my sister, amongst other things. I've also been tidying up my creative space so that I can get everything into one handy unit, so things are easy to get to and everything has a place. Well it's got to be done at some point!

My sister has returned from her 6 months in the Gambia and I surprised her with a visit last week to welcome her home. It was lovely to see her and drop of this birdy creation which ended up as a quirky cushion for her wee sofa. Back soon with more bits and pieces as I get ready to re-open my little shop on Etsy too x

Getting away...

Recently we (me + man) went on a long weekend to Arundel, what a lovely place to take a break.
a stunning castle
beautiful churches

flourishing wildlife
And who doesn't enjoy a well earned tipple in front of an open fire after an outside jaunt?!!...

Visual Journal (3)

A small snippet from my next set of journal pages. Almost a teaser you may feel, but I'm waiting for some decent natural daylight instead of the grey we've had to take some proper photos in! So more to follow soon...
