Oooh Pretty!

Its not my birthday till April but i'm making a wish list now, you know just in case anyone (Tim!) should want some ideas.......
And this is top of the list-
A necklace from Gwynnie B the only problem is choosing which one!
Aren't they pretty? I love them!!

I also happen to love her boots that are in her "weekend fun" post on her blog - perhaps i'll put those on my list too!!

Its 3.20am, I couldn't sleep (that is a VERY unusual thing for me) so here I am in blog land, I suppose i'd better go back to bed and stop thinking about sleeping and just do it!

Good night x

Etsy - Betsy!

Hello, exciting news!!!! ( well I think its exciting....)

I had some (lets be honest, it was only two, but still !) enquiries about the Polly paintings and so I've taken the plunge and had prints made and am listing them on Etsy!!
The address is

Only Polly Pilot is there at the moment but as soon as I get a chance all the other Pollys will be there too. They will soon be followed by Polly greetings cards - yes, its true, the Polly Dollies have taken over my world!!!

Tims Birthday!

This week we celebrated Tims birthday by taking a night way in west Cork. Now when I say "celebrated" I mean, I did because Tim is having another Bah Humbug moment! He is very good at making a huge fuss of me for mine, but prefers for his to pass un-noticed.

No Chance!!!!

I made him a card - why is it so hard to make cards for men???? which he liked and on our way to Clonakilty we visited Lough Hyne.

We will definately be going there again in the summer, its a great spot for canoeing. So, after cards and presents and cake and a lovely day, he had to admit that birthdays aren't that bad after all!
What else? yesterday I went to a craft class at the Crafty Alley shop - we did 12x12 layouts, i'll post those pictures later. The papers were fab, Lost and Found from My Minds Eye, and it was lovely to see everyone again.
Thats all my news this week I think - I'm working on a new Polly painting, which i'll show you as soon as its done.
Byeeeeeee! x

This week......

Hello lovely ladies,
how was your week? mine was interesting, it flew by though and now since it is howling a gail and puring rain, i'm at home "pottering" .

My cousin Paulette posted on Facebook yesterday, "Dear God, please make my bank balance fat and my body thin, I only ask as it seems to be the wrong way round!"

And Ebony posted that she wanted to go to Notting Hill (or Primrose Hill, any London hill will do apparently) and open a cake shop that does late night sessions, craft classes and makes hangover killing bacon sandwiches..............

Dreams are funny things, mine usually involve living in a house that we have built that will have craft room ( a whole room!) and magically this house will always be tidy...! and I will finish everything I start..... but I'm much better at that than I used to be!

So, ladies, what did you dream of this week?

p.s. Get better soon Maggie x x x x x x x x x x

January challenge.....

Hello ladies, I was trying to think of something really cool to make for January...... what do you think of this?
Have you looked at Youtube lately? Marion Smith started a 31day challenge and everyone is doing it!!
The idea is (for those of you that don't know) to set yourself a challenge for each day of January, and then make and post a video about it. In fairness, Marion makes it look effortless, she is quite amazing!
In theory I think this is a great idea, imagine how much you would get done?!

But, I know I wouldn't keep it up, and since setting attainable goals is one of my resolutions, I'm not going to start it.
So, for those of us who are playing the Scrapzville swap game this month, here is the plan.....

We will make a journal I suppose A5 is the biggest it should be, with a page at the front to list 5 goals. Then each of the 5 goals will have a page for writing about it and a page for a photo.
Because this will need alot of space in it, we only have to add a few embellishments, therefore it should be quick enough to make.

You can discuss colours with your partner, and then send them off to each other. Next month, when your 5 challenges are done we can post about them and see how we all got on.

So, i'll contact you all with your partners, and let the fun begin!!!!

Lotsa love,
Felicia x

This made me laugh.....!

Brandi over at Life is Art entitled her latest blog post "2010 was SO last year"

Gotta love her!!!!


Every year I resolve to do something positive, take on something new rather then give something up. last year I resolved to learn to draw and entered into the Sketchbook Project,
as you may or may not know, finishing things isn't my strong point, but this sketchbook had to be in Brooklyn New York by the 16th of January and I had it in the post on December 20th!!!!! (yeah for me!!)
Tens of thousands of people enter into this, all of the books get put into a mobile exhibition that goes around America. When people visit it they can pull out any book at random and look at it, which means that there is a tiny miniscule chance that anyone will ever see it - but someone might, and it might make them smile, and if not it will sit in the Brooklyn Art Library for ever more.

So that was last year, what about this one? every year I say I will learn to speak French - every year i've learnt maybe three new words! I will try and run more (more often, and for longer distances) and I will not take on more then I can do. I will keep the inside of my car clean.........

Thats not very exciting is it? Hmmm, I'll have a think and let you know if I come up with anything better!

In the meantime I wish you all that you wish for yourselves, I hope its a healthy, happy and prosperous year for everyone!

By the way, the photo of the tree is just because I like that tree!

Maybe I should resolve to use fewer exclamation marks...............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was on your resolution list?

Love Felicia xxxxxx
