Welcome Back

This month’s Challenge theme is:

Good Thing’s Happen.

Inspired by a journal prompt in a newsletter from Somerset Studios, this month’s challenge is to record the good things that happen in your life. We all get fed up during the LONG dark winter but then you see a little flower battling through and opening to the briefest watery sunshine.

Capture the moments that make you smile; in a photo, a piece of art, a scrap-book page, a digital project perhaps. Be inspired to create because of the colour you just saw, but notice it and make a note of it. The when the winter blues hit, you will have a box of happy events to look back through and inspire you. It’s the little things in life that make us smile, sometimes they are so brief we all too quickly forget them, lets celebrate the little things in life that we enjoy.

BIT of a different challenge, but lets give it a go.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

Here we are already in February, the winter seems to be going on forever but still January has sped past. For this month’s challenge: Try Something New.

This month I’ll be sharing my recent adventure into crochet and be trying something totally different, but exactly what this is, is a secret for now.

How about you, what have you promised yourself you want to try this year? Now’s a good time to start :)

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
