New year. New journey.
Happy new year folks and Thankyou for visiting my very irregular blog. I will try harder to post more regularly, especially as I'm signed up to so many online classes. Christmas was lovely but exhausting so I didn't even manage to post pics of this year's batch of hand made cards. However, after creating 75 for family, friends and neighbours, my energy levels were deplete! Lovely feedback from appreciate recipients though make it all worth while. However, this year will be more about my art journey. 'Wanderlust' by Everything Art, has just started and I've completed my first Wanderlust Book challenge. This was an opening page containing one word which sums up how I'm feeling at the moment. Well, this was easy. My word is: LOVE. Mainly because I love my life! (Will post pics when they've downloaded). Now I'm retired I have 'guilt-free' time. I love being able to spend time with my daughters and gorgeous Grandfairies. I love meeting up with friends, any time, anywhere, for coffee and chats. I love days out with my lovely husband Pete, using our National Trust cards and enjoying delicious lunches. I've also joined a 'knit and natter' craft group in my village - meeting at the local pub (persuasive) - to learn to crochet. So this year is 'my' year. I'm determined to practise, practise, practise my face portraits this year too. I have the books - Pam Carriker, Jane Davenport, Dina Wakley - I'm signed up to the online courses, so no more excuses! Hope you will also be blessed with a life you love this year xxx
