This is how I did it :)

Hello lovely bloggers!
Fancied making another beach themed piece of art, here's how I did it.

Pretty cute huh?

Also been treating myself to a few craft bits and pieces :)

Retail therapy feels good :)

A day in the life

The last couple of days has been busy and it was time for a clear out (I say this all the time).
There may not seem to be a lot of stuff here but I do cram a lot in a very tight space!

Sewing stuff needs work

Cleared stuff from under the bed (the dust mites will not be pleased) but some things remain.

You're never too old for teds and tigers

Bought a cool kaftan now that we have some sun :)

The knicker drawer was next

I love my retro clock - ain't she cute

Finally found a spot for our shabby side table

Box full of various swaps (not my baby shoes!)

A beautiful Charlotte Macey egg cosy (I won this)

One of my journals

Bursting at the seams

Bought a sample of Angel from The Scent Sampler, and lovely it is to :)

And.......................I have now gone 38 days without a single biscuit, sweet, cake, chocolate, treat of any kind, stuck to 3 meals a day and no snacking - whoever is giving me this willpower - THANKYOU!!!

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Iv'e started, so i'll finish

Hello!!!!!  Long time no blog post, no excuses really... so here is what iv'e been up to lately.

On the 1st June (this year) I decided enough was enough.  Stuffing myself with sugary goodies and getting hungry every night at around 9.30pm had been taking its toll, soooooooooooooo I had a word with myself (yes I talk to myself all the time) and knew that if I carried on not really caring how I looked after myself I would regret it, so for the last 13 days I have had 3 meals a day, absolutely no snacking in-between and not even half a biscuit has passed my lips.  I exercise on the beach walk just outside our home each day, I bought a bike, only eat wholemeal or seeded brown bread (no white bread) and the biggest shock to me is how easily I have forgotten chocolate - 13 days without this gorgeous treat is, to say the least, a miracle. I never knew I had it in me.  :)

I have also been creating art  for an ongoing journal swap, here are my mermaids that will be winging their way to their new owners very soon.

I have also been trying to finish a short story (to self publish) in time for Christmas (apologies for the C word), here is the cover!  A girl with antlers, mmmmmmm!  All will be revealed soon if all goes to plan :)

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Inspired by the sea and a favorite theme of mine, namely Beach Huts, here is some tiny coastal art, ready to hang just about anywhere.  Shabby, distressed and just a bit cute ;)

Hope they brighten your day!
