Good morning dear bloggy friends!
I hope you are all warm and safe...we have had a mixture of snow and rain these last days, so wet and dull most of the days, not very uplifting! I haven't started this year very well healthwise.....after a cough ( that is still not gone) now my knee is playing up again ( I am using a stick now!) I don't feel very optimistic! Still as I lay in bed most of the days after coming back from work my mind is constantly thinking about art! I haven't started on my art journal or altered book yet but I have written down a lot of ideas in my little notebook and watched all the Creative Jumpstart videos, so I think there will soon be an explosion of lovely stuff on my desk!
I am still keeping up the "1 Christmas card a week" thing - sometimes I make 2!Last week I showed you my moms card that I sent her for her birthday and she really liked it saying that that card was the most beautiful one I ever sent her - now that was worth a lot as my mom very rarely praises any of my work! I must thank you all for all the good wishes for her birthday - she was soo surprised but I told her " mom this bunch of people are the best" and it is true!!!
Anyway before I show my desk I must show you something else! Yesterday evening when I came home I went to take out all the mail and I found a package there from JOZART!!! I took it up to my flat and here is what was inside - a lovely gift for me and my mom!! THANK YOU JO !!! It is so beautiful and when I read the prayer my eyes were filled with tears! Lovely, lovely lovely!!!
These are the little gifts.....
and this is what you find inside.....
I will send it to my mom today...THANK YOU SO MUCH JO! IT REALLY MEANS A LOT TO ME!!!!
And now my desk - another mess - well I decided to make an Easter card and started off with some acrylic paint and some drops that I made intentionally - it is all over the art world these days so I thought I would give it a go! The card is far from finished but I know what I want to do and I will show it when it will be finished...
Here is a close up.....
The lovely flourish stamp is from Lost Coast Designs.....
Lately I have been hording a lot of stamps and other stuff which I forgot to take a photo of but I will in the next few days - hopefully my health will improve!
I haven't come round to all of you who have commented although I did try....I will try to do better this week!
We are suppose to be on strike today - I am against it as a strike will not get our country out of the crisis but I guess people don't get that, so the whole of the public sector is not working! Eh well!I guess the union bosses have to earn what they are very well payed for!! Huh!!!
Have a lovely day! I will be around your desks to see what is new in your little crafty world!If you still haven't heard about this thing that goes on every Wednesday (WOYWW) go on to our HQ where Queen Julia rules!
Lots of hugs to all of you,
