Latest offerings

Well I'm now over half way through my chemo. I'm about to have a pick line put in on the 8th February as my veins can't take any more needles - my hand swelled up during the last chemo and my arm was very bruised after the session. I'm not looking forward to having a permanent line in but they say it will be much easier on me. I hope they're right.

I've finally found out what all the fuss is about with regard to Twilight. I'm reading the book by Stephanie Meyer and, I must admit, I'm really enjoying it far more than I thought I would.

SuziBlu's workshops are still inspiring me to create - I'm really enjoying it and I've uploaded my work in progress.

For some reason I am totally fixated on Emmerdale at the moment. I can't believe that the character Sally can be so evil. I also love the coffee mugs in the vicars house :) wish I knew what type they were - they look like Poole Pottery.

I've been working on the Pass it Forward LO on UKS I'm intrigued to see how far from the original they will all be at the end.

Here's a few more of my creative offerings that I've been doing over the Christmas period.

A few more pages added to my Soul Journal. This one about breast cancer.

and this one is still a work in progress but so far talks about creating art, acceptance and it also records a news item I saw on TV about soldier who lost three limbs and the man who saved him lost his life - the news item made me realise how lucky I am.

Creative Catch Up

Well this is going to be a very interesting year me thinks! I've commited to quite a few creative projects and so far I'm really getting absorbed by it all.

To serve as a reminder for myself as much as anything - here's what I'm up to:-

  1. Creative Everyday Challenge 2010.
  2. SuziBlu Petit Dolls Workshop.
  3. 3 CJs with UKS - two are almost finished.
  4. Still a member of ATCs4All.
  5. My team, the Dizzy Dots on UKS are setting a UKS challenge in March.
  6. Committed to doing more art journaling this year.
  7. Joined the Milliande Art Community for Women.
It's so nice to be able to have the time.

What have I been making lately?

I made these for a UKS swap and used the ones I received in return to display hand made Christmas cards this year. I've been working a lot on Suzi's workshop dolls but I haven't yet had the chance to keep pace with taking photos.
