Free on Friday 23rd September 2016

Welcome to Free on Friday, the sun is shining here although there us a definite Autumn coolness.  This year we have had very good weather for our summer - I don't say hot, but then I don't like it when it is too hot!  I am already hearing a few groans that Christmas is on its way.  I love Christmas, the excitement, the decorations and tinsel, giving and receiving presents, I always have.  It makes the winter almost worthwhile :)



These Bird Children pages are both comical and cute, I am not sure about the Oat fellow below! "Coffee" looks like she has found a spot on her face, you can almost hear her saying "Oh no!"



The blog hop at Creating the Crafty Life has been postponed until November and I don't know if I can bear to wait until then to show you my pictures!  I guess now that the work is done I can concentrate on my faces for the next month :)  See you soon x

Free on Friday, but it's Saturday!

Hello and thank you for calling by, if you called by yesterday then my apologies for not being ready.  I am getting ready for Creating The Crafty Life's Blog hop which starts 25th September.  The theme is corrugated cardboard.  I was aiming for three pieces, one of which is done, I got in a real mess with the second one, so much so I took it back a couple of stages and started over.  I am much happier with it now, in fact I had a completely different idea :)   I may show you a glimpse or two next week :)

Onto the freebies, these pictures are weird, but cute.  I hope you enjoy them.





Take care and see you soon x

Scripture cards and latest face

I am quite excited as I am going to a Craft Show tomorrow, I am hoping for a sudden spurt of energy as I have been tired all week!  I am sure once I see all those crafting goodies I shall be filled with energy as I decide what to buy :)

Here are my latest batch of Scripture cards, I have lost count of how many I have made and equally how many I have given away, but it has given me a great deal of pleasure.  Today I have been working on making some backgrounds with paper serviettes/napkins.  They are drying flat at the moment and I hope to do something with them on Saturday.


Below is my latest face drawing, I shall have to work hard to get them all done before Christmas.


This is my new pond and would you believe something has already been eating my new plants!  I have been out with a torch in the evening to see if I can spot a dreaded slug or snail, but nothing yet.



Thank you for visiting and don't forget to join me for Free on Friday tomorrow x

Free on Friday 2nd September 2016

Welcome to Free on Friday, it's the 2nd September, the children will be back at school next week and autumn will soon be upon us.  We came back from a caravan trip to find my beautiful Acer (Japanese Maple) was completely dead!  It occupied a prime position in the garden and the first decision was to take it out.  My husband suggested a pond, now we actually have 2 ponds and 2 smaller ponds with irises in already, but I was very happy to have another one in our not very big garden.  The others are pre-formed ponds, for this one my husband used a liner.  He put rocks around the new pond and today we bought plants and fish.  Please note if you are thinking of having a pond it should take longer than that, but there is no stopping my husband!!

Today I have two different freebies for you, both from Elizabeth Gordon's books.  The first one is from Bird Children, the second one from Mother Earth's Children, this is from the inside cover page so it doesn't have a verse.



Have a great weekend x

Free on Friday 26 August 2016

Welcome to Free on Friday, first I have some more Scripture Cards to show you.


 I have lost track how many I have made so far, I think I have about 10 left to do.  So far I have given away about 12.  The church I attended the last two Sundays has a very small congregation, but very friendly.  This Sunday I shall be back home.  The weather has been surprisingly good this year - I wonder if the fact we haven't been to Scotland this year has anything to do with it!  It's pack up day today and probably no more outings for the caravan till next year.  I type this sitting on my mobility scooter outside the shop - no lovely smell of fruit this time as I think the fields have been sprayed with "something" and there is a very countryside aroma!  I have just said hello to a lady who told me she loves the smell as it brings back memories of her childhood :)

Now your freebies, two Birdchildren pages from Elizabeth Gordon's book.



Thank you for visiting today and do leave  some love before you go.

Rocking Horses and Clock

Remember me showing you a photograph of a rocking horse in a shop window?  Well here is the photograph to remind you and what I did with it :)




I just love playing about with a photograph to see what I can make with it.  Today I have been working on a photograph of a clock.



Thank you for visiting and don't forget to say hello in the comments because I love to hear from you x
