About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

Looking for inspiration, just a few of the many books I have bought over the years.
I am seriously in the mood for Altered Art again after a break of 6 years.

Just of to have a mosey round other work desks.
I love this phenomenon created by the
phenominal Julia

she has made it respectable to be nosey;)


  1. That Taking Flight book looks interesting. Do you have suggestion for a first book on altered art?

  2. Oooo those books look intersting, never tried Altered Art, look forward to seeing what you make :)

  6. Those books look interesting, but it is not a style I have attempted so far. So many things I want to have a go at.

  7. Those books look cool, I hope you get some mojo going on.. and start back up.. TFS
