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.

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

Valentine Animals Printers Tray


I am so happy to share my first project as a member of the very talented Calico Craft Parts Design Team. I love animals so I couldn’t wait to paint these lovely mini sized animals. This is the first printer tray I have made, it was really easy and fun to put together. The animals left their muddy paw, and hoof prints  all around the edges! (Hero Art stamps)

All of the details about how I made the Valentine Tray are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog

Wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day, thank you so much for visiting xx

Star Of Wonder



I have made this canvas for a friend, who lives opposite the golf club, so he often has foxes visiitng him. One winter he took many photos of a fox happily playing in the snow outside his house. So I tried to recreate that scene for this canvas.

I used a wood fox from Calico Craft Parts, and painted him with acrylics, and added a fluffy tail from some needle felting wool. A brick stencil was useful to suggest his house, and texture paste covered with glitter worked as snow. I also added a some twigs and trees, and my finishing touch was to add battery operated lights.

Thank you for visiting me today, how is  your Christmas crafting going. xx

Moon Gazing Fox


It is good to be crafting again, after being very unwell. I am rather late with my second guest project for Calico Crafts, and I want to thank them so much for being very kind and understanding.  I love creating with their products which are fabulous, and there are so many to choose from! The possibilities are endless. There are more details about my Moon Gazing plaque over on Calico Crafts and Parts blog, so I hope you can pay them a visit. 

I also need to thank Happy Little Stampers for selecting my Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder watercolour card as a winner. For some odd reason, which I still have not worked out, I am unable to comment on some blogs and Happy Little Stampers is one of them. 

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you all is ok with you, I will visiting everyone’s blogs soon. xx
