My First Post

Not an original title for my first post, I know!  Primarily I want this to be a craft blog but I expect I will use it for other things - especially when I lose my mojo! I also expect it will be a slow start and I may need some help (son and son-in-law) but I will try to learn as I go along! This picture is my crew!

Busy busy

I haven't been crafting much lately but I DO have to do Lily's birthday card!! I have (as some may know) just signed up to the Open University to do a degree.  I haven't studied for at least 25 years and its going to take me 6 years - IF all goes to plan.  I am quite excited but terrified too and at the moment I am trying desperately to get my head around the course materials for the first module.  The panic will, I hope, wear off and I will get myself into a regime that will include free time and craft time!

For now, I have started this image from Tiddlyinks for Lily's card but I have only done the hair! It's called Magda and Sparkles.  I had the image for ages but was terrified of doing it! Lol! (Seem to be spending a lot of time being terrified lately!!)

Now I have done the hair and I am pleased with it - I am scared to go on and colour the rest for fear of spoiling it!!! Aw well..........................................I have till 17th September as I am going away on the 18th and I want to post it before I leave!

Thanks for looking! Lea xx

Elliot's 4th Birthday! Little Monkey!

Can't believe I bought a kit today but just couldn't get what I wanted and ran out of time!   Elliots birthday is Tuesday but his party is tomorrow and as I am starting jury service on Monday I wanted it out of the way rather than have it get there late! Hope he likes it - and at 4 years old I doubt he will worry that it was a kit!! In fact he probably wont notice the card at all! Just the present!

Izzy's ProMarker colouring

Eldest grand-daughter Izzy came for the weekend and she was allowed to use nannys special pens! I was quite impressed. She has never used them before and I printed off some of my digis for her. Three Saturated Canary ones and a freebie teddy from Elliphantastic! Didn't she do well!

2nd colouring session

Congratulations on your new job!

I made this for a colleague at work who has achieved a secondment for 12 months still working in the same office but definitely a good career move.  She loved it!! Its a Kenny K dig stamp, coloured with Promarkers.
