Nature?

hello and welcome back for another blog hop, This week Jo set a 'nature' theme and for some reason it threw me, I really couldn't think of something 'Nature' so i sat down and played in my journal thinking of trees and taking my kids bush walking, and this is what i came out with, I'm really liking the fog/mist look of my background. So i cut pictures of my three children doing something in 'nature' Two of them were bush walking and the other is climbing a tree, the photos are mixed aged a couple of them quite old but since its a journal page anything goes.



The blog hop starts at Imagine If and the next stop along the way is Brenda at Thyme 2 craft          Hope you have enjoyed this weeks inspiration from the design team.

Jo's challenge!

Hello, and welcome to another blog hop for Imagine if, Jo sent us some squares/frames and said make something with these, I believe they are the left overs from something else! so when i saw them i so wanted to try my hand at a Jacobs ladder album, and i'm really happy with how it turned out, my ribbon could of been a little tighter but it works and that is all that matters so here are some pic's of my album and if you pop over to my facebook page there is a small video showing that it works!








The photos are pretty bad with reflection but if you can see on the second page i have put one of Imagine If's chipboard monkey's with some glitter in between some acetate, This album is made for my son with photos of him and inspirational quotes from Imagine If . If you have been following the hop You have just come from Carols and the next stop along the way is Beths, and remember you can always start at the start and Imagine If, Hope you have enjoyed the hop with all the different things we have come up with.
Happy Craftin

Soap, Jersey and a cheeky little man

Hello, This week i have a few things i would like to show you, The first is a fun layout i did a few weeks ago of my Cheeky little man with a pup, and i have been busy doing all kinds of different things.


And here i finally finished knitting a hooded jersey for Little man who had to model it while riding his bike ( would not just stand for a photo) but he wears it everywhere and its simple design is great for school or farm.


and a few weeks ago i made some soap, it turned out great and we have all been using it, Even my mum has used hers and rang to say she loves it! i also got some beautiful bees wax and made some lotion bars, I love these for moisturizing because you just rub them on your skin but don't get lots of greasy lotion that takes 10 minutes to rub in.



I'm knitting an infinity scarf for my Little Miss at the moment and making more soap for Christmas, and i'm teaching myself how to crochet using you-tube and some books. I'm lucky to be super busy being crafty at the moment, and i hope you are having time for the things/people you love.
Happy Craftin
