So, I have asked Ty that I would like to have one of Ady's classes as a christmas present!  :D  Namely the Dreamy Ladies one!!  :)  I am loving  the Christmas Dolls that I am already a member of, I have learnt alot, and because of what I have learnt, I have been able to create a Christmas card, which I had printed today, and what I should be doing right now is trimming them off, etc!  I have 8 that I NEED to get in the post tomorrow at the latest!!  Another late night for me I think!  lol  I was up until 3.30am last night/morning making and finishing off the wax tarts for DH's coffee morning today!  They sold really well there, and he only bought a few back, which I think I have mostly sold through my facebook!  :)

Christmas Cards!

I designed a christmas card that I thought I would have printed and sent out to all our friends.  I did it on a square card, so 5x5ins, I took it to the printers and he advised me to rethink the shape, if I go for A6, I'll get 2 cards per sheet of card, whereas with the 5x5in, I'll only get one, lol  So I made another one in A6 size, I will upload it in a moment, if I can get a decent picture!  :)  I need to hurry and get the final design and then printed, as a few of these need to go overseas, and time is seriously running out!!  Eeek!

I just realised that I can upload photos directly from my laptop as well!  lol  

This picture is my very 1st journal page, I am so excited that it is finished!!!  :)  It is in my large Moleskine sketchbook, which I love!  I have bought a pocket sized one also.  I would like to get a watercolour one as well at some point.  :)

New phone...

Back to Art! :D

After many years I have been inspired to pick up my pencil and start drawing again!  I used to draw all the time, and my granny (who left this world almost a year ago, with her greatest love, my grandad) used to encourage me so much in my art, that I can almost feel her smiling on me, happy that I am finally getting back to my art!  :)

The very talented Megan, from  She also has a youtube account look for 'mycreativebliss' to see some of her awesome work!  I found her by accident whilst googling for something else completely unrelated!  She does mostly whimsical art and I absolutely love it.  I have been drawing some whimsical big eyed girls!  When I am able I will upload some photos of what I have been doing! :)

So much has happened since I last posted!  My Grandad collapsed on the 28th November, he had had a heart attack, he was so ill, all of his organs were failing, he needed surgery but his body was so weak that they couldn't operate.  He passed away on the 29th November.  Devastated.  My Granny, his wife, followed him into the afterlife that very same day.  They were both a huge influence on my life, they were very much like a mum and dad to me.  It still hurts now, it always will to a degree, they were so important to me.  The funeral didn't take place until the 23rd December.  Christmas wasn't full of the festivities that it would have been, we carried on through it for our children, but it was so hard and also plagued with illness within our little family.

When I think of them, I see them as they were when I was a girl, that makes me feel happy, and sad at the same time.............
