Christopher Robin


 Christopher Robin, Pooh, and Piglet are enjoying the Spring sunshine in Ashdown Forest. I removed  a page from  my "The World Of Christopher Robin" book, and adhered it to a small canvas. The branches wer ecreated with texture paste and detailed with paint. 
After stamping  this lovely Pooh swing stamp I coloured and  fussy cut them. I hung the Happy group from the branches festooned with die cut blossoms.

Thank you for visiting us in Ashdown Forest today.

I created this page for the challenges below

Happy Birthday A.A.Milne

Today A.A.Milne would have been 135 years old! He of course created our Silly old Britsh Bear Winnie the Pooh. I have created this 3D scene in his honour.

Pooh was 90 years old last year but I had just had an op so I couldn't create anything then, so this is a double celebration!

I used a Tando Create Art Room as the base and Tim Holtz Treeline and Pine Tree Dies to fill Ashdown Forest with lovely trees. I covered the trees and the outside of the Art Room in Indigoblu Coarse Texture paste and painted them in various shades of green.

I watercoloured my stamped images of Christopher Robin and Pooh, Piglet and Hunny Pots. I stamped an extra balloon and used some wire to dangle Piglet underneath it, he is having a grand old time! Some glossy accents added to the hunny pots gave them a goooey glossy look.

Many Happy Returns of A.A.Milne's Birthday, thank you for visiting us on this Special Day in Ashdown Forest!

In A.A. Milne's and Pooh's honour I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

"Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"

"Supposing it didn't," said Pooh after careful thought.

Piglet was comforted by this

Gills Lap

The Pooh take over continues... Today I thought I would share the real 100 acre wood with you, which is the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, England. All of the places mentioned in the Pooh books can still be found in the forest. Gills Lap ( known as The Enchanted Place in the book) Poohsticks Bridge where you can still play Pooh sticks and many more.There are several walks you can take to visit the Pooh places the details of which can be found are here.

There is also a shop nearby called Pooh Corner where they sell pooh souvenirs.Christopher Robin used to visit that shop as a child to buy his penny worth of sweets.

A memorial to A.A.Milne and E.H. Shepard can also be found in the forest.

"They walked on, thinking of This and That, and by-and-by they came to an enchanted place on the very top of the Forest called Galleons Lap, which is sixty-something trees in a circle; and Christopher Robin knew that it was enchanted because nobody had ever been able to count whether it was sixty-three or sixty-four, not even when he tied a piece of string round each tree after he had counted it. Being enchanted, its floor was not like the floor the Forest, gorse and bracken and heather, but close-set grass, quiet and smooth and green. It was the only place in the Forest where you could sit down carelessly, without getting up again almost at once and looking for some where else. Sitting there they could see the whole world spread out until it reached the sky, and whatever there was all the world over was with them in Galleons Lap."

Free Cath Kidston Pooh Printables!


Free Cath Kidston Pooh Printables

It's not long now until our silly old British bear is 90 years old on the 14th October! Cath Kidston recently released a new pooh print (unfortunately it was Disney Pooh and not the original Pooh as drawn by E.H.Shepard - still lovely though !) They now have free Pooh Printables on their blog to celebrate their new release which sold out in record time!.

I am missing my crafting a lot, I am having my wound checked tomorrow and hopefully after a course of therapy I will be able to use my right hand again. It has been a challenge steering my wheelchair left handed, everyone dives for cover whenever I start to move!

Even though I can't craft just yet... I will post lots of Classic Pooh things this month.

Hope everyone is having a good start to Autumn!

Here is a very good quote from Eeyore

"A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference." (Eeyore)
