Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Had the best weekend...

Nowt better for the soul than spending a few days with treasured friends.

Just back from our yearly camping trip with 'The Friday Friends' Five families who all met after the birth of our first babies and four of us had our second babies within 9 weeks of each other.
It is lovely to see all the kids together - 11 of them now, they only meet up in school holidays but when they do it's like they have never been apart, it's lovely to see. As for us adults.. we just drink and eat and laugh, it's a tonic being with these guys!!

Been having a little play in the last couple of days altering a notebook... I haved loved this colour combination of Red/yellow/orange, ever since Sian made me a BRAK using these colours a few years ago. I've had these face stamps for a while now but because they are square I've never been quite sure how to use them, so I had a play with them altogether on here. Quite pleased with the result, not sure the photo does it justice though... I should be more patient and wait until I have daylight to photograph my stuff!!

The seven weeks of school holidays have gone so very quickly and my little buddies will be back at school next week... I'm very sad, but then again I am quite excited about having a bit more craft time to myself!
But before then I have a school bag to alter for number one daughter who is off to high school, so I better get on.... the order of the day is Skeletons, but that may well change!!
Oh and have I mentioned it's only 25 sleeps till Ally Pally and 24 sleeps till I make my way to Kent to see my Number One bessie???


  1. What a great idea to have an annual get-together and how lovely to have stayed in touch and watched the kids growing up. You all look as though you're having a great time.
    Nice to catch up with you. I know you are very busy and that your workshops have been a success. Well done. Thank you also for calling in to my blog. I'm afraid the balloons were not a job lot sadly!! I'm B!@@*! seventy and dont like that idea at ALL!!

  2. WOW looks like such a fun time :) and wow i love this altered notebook, its stunning the colours are so lovely. I am soooooo excited about Ally Pally too woohoo roll on the 26th !!!!

  3. I love the way you've coloured and stamped that! Really beautiful.
