Isolating - lots of free crafty downloads and ideas


Crafting always keeps us sane. But especially so at the present time, when so many of us are in prolonged isolation as we are vulnerable. Lots of lovely crafty people are giving away lots of lovely goodies to download. Lots of other ideas too, I have listed them below. Hugs to everyone, stay safe xxx

Prima have a large collection of gorgeous art colouring pages to print out, unfortunately our printer won’t print on anything thicker than copy paper, but I may still give it a try!


Finnabair are holding a stay at home and make art event on Facebook

Jane Davenport has a list of Alice In Wonderland prompts for April! I am going to try and do some of those.She has a group on 
Facebook where you can share your art.


Julie Nutting  has drawn a gorgeous We’re All In It Together poster 

This is my effort coloured on plain copy paper, note to self must get a better printer which will take card! 


Johanna Bansford has a large collection of beautiful colouring pages available to freely download.



Belle and Boo have some gorgeous colouring pages and paper dolls to download and print

Take Heart All Will Be Well In Time



I certainly hope this sentiment is true. Our isolation for our safety continues like so many others. 

Hugs to everyone.  Please stay safe, and follow the governments advice. xx

Courage Dear Heart


What can I say, we are all fearful at the moment, and those of us who are ill and disabled are even more so. I was originally going to make an Easter Wreath  for Calico Craft Parts this month, but I quickly decided we all needed a little encouragement, so I created this plaque. Please visit Calico Craft Parts to discover more.

I am now quarantined at home for my safety, with all the consequential difficulties. But we will get through. 

All we can do is to continue to hope, and do everything we are asked to do by our Government.

Hugs xxx

Buy Now Or Cry Later!


Hello how are you today? I have been taking part in a Just One Stamp Challenge at UK Stampers,  where a group of us exchange a stamp each month. This month I  am using Sid’s stamp, it is the background one. I love the sentiment I have used with this card  : ) 



I had a lovely  surprise yesterday when  I discovered that My Artist Trading Coins had won the Crafts Beautiful star prize! Thank you so much.


I am still having problems being able to comment on some peoples blogs, I just can’t work it out. Blogger seems to be making things more and more difficult all the time!

Thank you for stopping by.

Spring Altered Book



I was recently looking through some old books in Oxfam when I spotted  this old book by Enid Blyton. It was called “ Brer  Rabbit Again” I thought it would be perfect to use with the cute little wooden bunnies I have from Calico Craft Parts. So I began my venture to alter the book, please follow me on my adventure over on the Calico Craft Parts Blog today xx

Thank you ou so much for visiting. xx 

I would like to enter this into Artistic Stampers Word Challenge.
