Wednesday 3 April 2019


Welcome back to another Wednesday romp around the crafting desks courtesy of Julia's blog.
Here is my desk, pretty empty at the moment as I am about to head off to a work conference so am busy packing and checking my to do list in my bullet journal.  You can see my inevitable mug of tea (almost empty), various pens and my journal.  The Dina Wakley Collage Collective was my Mother's Day present and I am looking forward to playing with it.
 The two orange pieces of paper are little cartoon characters drawn by Alex... they each have their own names and attributes!
The card at the back of the desk was my mother's day card, drawn as only Alex does...

I had a lovely weekend with singing in a packed church on Sunday morning (I'm in the distance, wearing red and singing into a microphone!) for the Mothering Sunday service
Then going out for a treat meal followed by a romp in the peaks with Alex.
Finally some proof that I have been creative this week - a birthday card for my mother-in-law.
I'm at a conference for the next few days, so will try and comment when I get a chance, but may be a little late.  I am going to be missing in action next week as well as I am off to my brother's for a few days with Alex.  Have a lovely week and see you soon.
With love & God Bless

Ooh Caro, I love that card - what a gorgeous background piece you made.
Couldn't find you on the photo but it was good to see so many people enjoying themselves at the service.
had to look up what the Dina Wakeley book was all about, now I see. You will have to show us what you do with it, how you use it etc. Very interesting and tempting too.Great figures from Alex!

I do love Alex's card for you - hope he doesn't mean that you're a dragon though!!! My boys would have done something like that too back in the day. Hope your conference goes well and you get some free time too!
