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.

I have been gone a while, but I am back and hopefully will start some serious playing in the not too distant future. On my play desk this morning is a delightful stash I bought yesterday on a jaunt to Art From the Heart in Harrogate. What a FABULOUS shop!  I could have broke the bank but I was kept in check by my beloved.  Well sort of, because when we were having a bite to eat in the cafe downstairs, he offered to buy me the Dylusions sprays I had been coveting. Hence  back upstairs we went and purchased eight delicious colours just waiting to enhance my world.  I NEED all the colours though so I may be visiting again online before very long.  I also bought three Moleskin journals, not the really grown up one's but the learner one's. I want to get into art journalling so thought these would be  good to get started with. Any tips on getting started would be graciously received.

Anyway must get gone, have a great day grazing on delicious arty desks via
