Art Journaling for Beginners

Hey!!!
The sun is shining again : )
Puts me right in the mood to create.

I'm teaching in Swindon at Sparkle Dreams this coming Sunday.
A beginners Art Journal Class if you fancy it?
We'll be covering everything from prepping the journal to creating colourful pages using different mediums and techniques.
The class is just £15 and you get everything you need included in this.
Take a peek.






If you want to book visit the Sparkle Dreams blog here.
Or you can call the store on Tel: 01793 855472
The class starts at 11am until about 1.30pm.
I promise you it will be fun and very creative and abit messy too : )

It was my birthday yesterday.
A funny day and I never acheived what I wanted which was a quiet day alone, just me and my paints.
Instead I had to sort Hollie's passport renewal which took longer than expected due to big queues at the post office and I ended up having to cancel my pilates class. Then I wanted to get a few worky jobs done but the phone didn't stop ringing and I had visitors and it just all went to pot. I didn't get my afternoon after school with the kids due to more visitors, dinner was then late .... so I need to plan another day of quiet and quality time with the kids.

I didn't ask for anything as we are planning a Florida trip, so I got cheques instead : )
I'm saving like crazy right now and selling so much stuff on Ebay.
Almost £900 ($1400) in the past month. I'm doing so well and decluttering at the same time.
A really good feeling.
I did get this beautiful crotched garland from my lovely Nicky : )
It goes perfect on my fireplace.



And Hollie's card made me smile.


I bought a Raclette a couple of weeks ago, so that was dinner last night with the kids.
Steak, big prawns (shrimp), hot wings, chorizo, olives, fresh bread and lots of salads and dippies. Ade stopped off at the American Store near us and bought home some Ranch Dressing & decent Blue Cheese dressing too.
It reminded us of the resort we stay at in Orlando. They do the best wings with ranch and blue cheese. We just love that by the pool : )

Well that's me for today.
Have a lovely one. Thanks for visiting xxx
