Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Probably my favourite craft right now is with parchment, both traditional skills and Groovi, very relaxing and calming to do.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 346

This is only my second blog this year, which is dreadful, and I am very late today.  For those who do not know what WOYWW is all about, I shall refer you to our esteemed leader, Julia, at her Stamping Ground blog.  As I am working on my Kindle tonight, I cannot add the link, but it is easy to find on Google.

My table today is all about a new challenge using the Groovi Plate Starter Kit, which I will talk about more when I have finished my entry.

You may also see the remains of my teatime smoother, which contained a banana, an apple, a large pear, cucumber, ginger, basil and carrot.  This is all part of my 28 days of juicing.  I have lost over 10lb in just over a week, so that is a good start, and I have gone right off things like chocolate and cake etc.

At the back you might also notice a part completed card.  It is holding flakes through a tree stencil onto double sided adhesive sheets.  Beautifully sparkly and very easy and quick to do.

I will leave it here and hope to visit as many of our other dealers as this week progresses.  Have a healthy and happy week.

I was also very late today with linking up. Good luck with the diet, so you only drink juices for 28 days? Not my cup of tea. Vicky#66
