Mid-Summer, Midnight Crop

Ladies, (and gentlemen if there are any scrap minded types reading this)
The 25th of June is fast approaching and that is the night for the Midnight Crop!!! (drum roll!!)
This will involve meeting for dinner, and then back to the Crafty Alley Shop for a fun filled night. There will be a kit for the nights project, challenges, pass the parcel and a great laugh.
If you would like to join me in this night of scrapiness then sign up quick! There is a really nice Thai restaurant in town, we could go there or do something less spicy.
Suggestions please!!!
See you on the 25th,
F xxxxx

June Swoon!

Wasn't it snow and ice and Christmas about 2 months ago???
Apparently not!
This year is flying by, which is a bit worrying as they say that the older you get the quicker time passes.... I don't believe that for a second!
So, as the weather is beautiful I think we should do something slightly different for June, just in case this sunshine continues and we don't want to be inside.
I'll let you know what soon, but if you would like to swap something next month then leave a comment here!
It'll be fun, I promise!
Hope you're all getting on well with your "How does your garden grow" Minis,
Enjoy the sunshine,
Felicia xx

Art Journal Cover

Hey girlies, have you seen the fab art Journal that Louise made? If not hop over and have a look, she even has a step-by-step on Youtube.
Anyhoo, I've been keeping an art journal for a good while now so I thought i'd show you the cover. ( I strongly recommend keeping an art journal to deal with the ups and downs of everyday life!) You can write the most random things in it, its just a big (A4) pretty book full of thoughts, sometimes worries and all the time hopes and dreams!
The "TRUST" on the cover is to remind me to have faith in the universe! Trust that fate isn't going to kick my ass, trust that every cloud has a silver lining etc.,....
Enough rambling, I'm off to a beach BBQ in Inch now..... its a hard life!!

Hey there,
Its Friday and after a truly stressfull week, there is finally time to relax.
My keyboard is now covered in gesso!
I'm having a sudden attack of "Finish-it-itus" so, all those half finished altered books that are scattered over my desk are getting the attention they deserve at last!
I have a birthday mini album to finish and send to Canada (its so close to being finished, but I can't decide what its missing - at this rate it'll be a Christmas present!)
The album i'm making for this months swap started off with a theme and colourscheme... but there were just so many nice things, and now the scheme is "organised cluttered" I'd better not say anymore, Ann might be reading this!..........
So, I will get back to it now, I think the gesso is dry.
Is anyone coming to the midnight crop next month? I need to organise it, so if you are leave a comment here or on the Crafty Alley blog I'll know how many kits to make.
Thats all for now,

Sunday already!

Hi all, its Sunday already!! how did that happen?
I've done very little crafting............ boo.
I've climbed lots of mountains..... hoorah!
The bare minimum of housework has been done, so i suppose thats ok. It needs to rain so I can clean my house, if its sunny I can't stay indoors!
My brother is visiting from England so i've been out and about with him, its lovely to have him here - I haven't seen him for 3 years.
So those are all my excuses for not posting anything for ages!
I will post the pictures of Anns mini as soon as its finished, how are you all getting on with yours?
Ok, i'm off to eat lemon tart now,
have a good week! x

Happy International Scrapping Day!!

May 1st is celebrated for alot of reasons, but heres one that we can all join in with - International Scrapbooking day! I'm working on a few 'altered' projects, but I think that counts as scrapping...
The partners for the swap this month are as follows:

Clare - Robin
Cathy - Jenny
Ebony - Ann marie
Tracey - Christine
Ann - Felicia

The challenge is to use paint instead of paper on one page, and the theme is "How does your garden grow?"

I hope you all have a very happy May Day,
F xx
