time for a change

Decided to change the look of my blog so used craft artist to change the header and have used a bigger font for the layout..hope you like it!  It has been raining nearly every day here so we have had the odd hour out in the local woods..here is a layout of my sons and friend playing around in the mud last week..love craft artist as its so quick to do and you dont have to search for papers and embellishments everywhere!



It was my mum's 80th at the weekend and we had a bbq..luckily the rain stayed off for a bit.  I made her one of my needlefelted cushions and she loved it.  My mum is Welsh so wanted to capture the Welsh mountains and sheep.  I have also made one for my uncle who is getting married this week in Wales

 Mum and Dad delighted with her presents
 I found this wooden house at a charity shop ages ago so decorated it with papers and filled it with lots of interesting finds from my walks..shells, acorns, old tins and my collection of vintage cigarette cards
 My European Circle Journal returned this week so click here to watch my vimeo video of it. I am so pleased as it is full of superb layered art journal pages..big thanks to Palma, Mary, Trine, Letizia, Lynn, Vigdis and Tina.

.

Until next time...

Love the new look! Great work. I love those pillows, I bet your mom just loved them. I always like personal gifts. I wish more people would give them. Cheers from the other side of the pond.

Love the new look. Your cushions are lovely too. I'm glad to hear someone is getting rain. We are over 100 degrees F every day and no rain in months. Keeps me inside more and that is depressing.
