Another busy week here. I'm away this weekend at my daughter's for a 12 hour crop on Saturday and then on Tuesday I'm going to my sister's in York for a week!! I've had several swaps to get finished, both paper and cross stitch and haven't even thought about what to take to do on Saturday! I have managed to do a bit of crafting though!! The theme for this week's card for 'craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge' is 'bright colours and/or sparkle'! I thought this little robin was nice and bright and I've 'sparkled' the snow on top of the postbox!

On the Bubbly Funk forum, Kaz has started a challenge to get us back to art journalling. She will supply the saying, we supply the inspiration!!!! The first saying was, 'Life is short so smile while you have teeth'!! Here's my effort!

The second saying was 'I used to have an open mind but then my brain fell out'!!!!! I found this quite difficult, but this is what I came up with!

I was direct to the NanaJoumo blog where they are setting a challenge every day this month. I've managed one so far!!! Day 3 was 'Hopes and fears' so I picked out the fears and this is the result!!

It will probably be a couple of weeks before I get to do any more pages, but I shall look forward to doing more, hopefully improving as we go!!! Bye for now.
