New Artwork......

I was contacted by Photowall to see if I would review their products here. I browsed the site and was blown away with the variety of prints available. Quite often, companies that offer canvas or framed prints have a very limited selection of reproduction Old Masters or old posters, but Photowall have a wide selection of really original artwork - thousands to choose from. I enlisted the help of family and friends to help me choose (a good lockdown exercise!) and, funnily enough, every single one had BRUSSELS at the top of their list, so this was my choice, a large canvas of a street scene in Brussels (entitled 'Brussels'), I have this dark plum wall in my dining room and I knew this would be perfect.
Close runner up was a fabulous collage of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany, but Brussels won......do you like it?

If you really want to make a statement, they do (as the name suggests) prints that will cover the whole of a feature wall, I am toying with the idea of a forest scene in my bathroom

I am still a bit mojo-less in all this isolation business and finding it really difficult to get back into the swing of cardmaking. On the other hand, I am now a jigsaw champion!

I can't quite believe that not only am I wasting hours and hours looking for the missing bit of a cats tail, but I am actually taking photos of completed jigsaws and sharing them with you as if they are original works of art! 

See you soon xx

Overdue post.....

This post is so overdue! Much has happened since I last posted - for all of us
What strange times we are living in, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. We have been in total isolation here for eight weeks now (Mike has been shielded by the government, which means he, and by default me, has to stay strictly at home and our garden). I spent three weeks giving my craft room a deep clean, it has never been so organised and shiny. The downside is that I seem to have chucked my mojo out with the rubbish, and now have no desire/inclination/inspiration to make cards. I have, however made a couple of mini albums which I will share later

In other news, at the end of February Fiskars decided they were disbanding the Fiskarettes Facebook page. After five years of running the page and team, this left me feeling a little discombobulated.......five years of projects made using punches has been a bit of a challenge, so in some ways I am not sorry to be let free to use anything I choose again. It has been a journey, I started the page with zero followers, and by the time it ended had built it up to 24,700+ who enjoyed the page. I made some very good friends over there, both visitors to the page, and the various design teams. Here are some of my punch projects that I was most pleased with......

 So at the moment, I have no idea which path my crafting will follow next.....one thing is certain, I will make use of that clean and tidy craftroom very very soon, I keep wandering in, looking around, and wandering out again, but one of these days I know I will wander in, sit down, and get totally absorbed in some new challenge. In the meantime, I will be more of a faithful friend to all of you, and recharge Going Buggy

Stay safe, stay well x
