Anns journal.

The January Scrapzville challenge was to create a journal in which you could write about 5 achievements. Ann was my partner and today (yes February 23rd!) we are swapping....... so this is the cover, i've left alot of space inside for writing.
The paper is mostly ledger paper from the Slice stack with some colour thrown in for good measure.

Ann hasnt' seen this yet, but at the moment she is driving over here so it won't spoil the surprise! I hadn't done any paper crafting for a while, it was fun to get the Big Shot out again!

I think one of my challenges to put in my journal will be CLEAN MY DESK!! its no wonder I can't find anything, I actually made the back cover twice, the first one is missing- presumably hiding amongst this mess. I'm sure it'll turn up when I'm searching for something else............

Who knew there was so much to Etsy? I was hoping that you put something up and somebody bought it......... not so!

There are thousands and thousands of shops, so you have to try and make yours more visible to attract visitors, who will hopefully become buyers. There is SO much to learn, today i'm going to add these little fridge magnets and maybe a couple of other things.

What else is new?

I'm not really loving " The Elegence of the Hedgehog" its good when I pick it up, but i'm not dying to pick it up ~ what suggestions do you have for me????
I think I will re read Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, its years since I read it. When I like a book I always re read it, does anyone else do that?

Have a lovely weekend, I think i'll bake some delicious chocolate chip cookies...... yum!

Pretties continued.....

Here is the previously mentioned brown paper package..........
Lots of nice things happened today, I had a book voucher left over from Christmas and got "The Elegence of the Hedgehog", and Zac made a cake!
See that little box with the ribbon? thats what was inside the larger box.........

Look how pretty it is!!!!

And THIS is what was inside of that! not the best picture i'm afraid ~ for the full effect have a look at Gwynnies site at " The Lucy".
Today was pretty good for a Tuesday, so now i'm going to eat cake with Zac and read my book whilst gazing at my necklace!
I hope you had a great day too,

Guess what? I went home today for lunch and there on the kitchen table was a package. A brown paper package all the way from California.......

You have to understand the restraint it took not to rip the paper off to get to the contents!

This package, you see, is from the lovely Gwynnie B ( the most amazing jewellery designer, I blogged about her recently) and this is supposed to be my birthday present but that isn't untill April!

If I really wanted it for my birthday I shouldn't have ordered it untill the end of March, but it was one of those (rare) things that I JUST HAD TO HAVE!!!! So, here I am now, back at work, just finishing my lunch and knowing that its there at home, waiting for me!!!!!!!

More later..............

Maggie Mae.......

Hello, this is Maggie Mae Polly, she is named that after the amazingly cool and groovy Maggie in Iowa. Maggie In Iowa looks nothing like this painting by the way, and i'm pretty sure she doesn't wear pink. Anyhoo, it was her birthday yesterday, so Happy Birthday Maggie!!!!!!

She is on canvas and I used acrylic, pastels, paper and buttons.

She will be going onto my Etsy shop
as a print tomorrow. I've just got all of the Pollys made into fridge magnets and greetings cards to! they will be up on Etsy soon.
This painting says " Breath and Believe" because really thats all you have to do isn't it? keep breathing and believe in yourself!

Hope you have a lov-er-ly day,
Felicia x

Time ...

Its Friday, i'm sure it was Monday only yesterday........ will the weekend pass equally quickly, and suddenly it'll be Monday again?
But, since its Friday I will be full of Fridayosity from about 5pm onwards, then i'll have lovely dinner and a glass of wine, sleep in tomorrow, have friends over for dinner, and spend Sunday making "stuff" (cupcakes will be on that list for sure!) In between i'll shop and do laundry and walk the dog but it'll all be enjoyed.
Personally I think three day weekends are the way to go, but then i'm also very grateful to have a full time job in these times, so i'll be careful what I wish for!

I hope you all have a lovely time,
what are you're plans?

Sneeky peeky!

Heres a peek of the painting I hope to finish today..............

February Love......

Hello, are we all glad to see the back of January? We are one month closer to warm weather! I was walking Toby the other day and came across this tree, I think it got hit by lightening - poor thing!
So, whats new? How are your new years resolutions going?
Today I am going to pick up one more set of prints from the printers (duh! where else would I get them?) and hopefully finish the latest painting. I am also on a mission to find Amelie
she has some very sweet pendants made with her lovely art and I know someone who'd like one very well!!! ( yes, me - but actually this is for someone else)
Its windy and rainy today, and Toby is afraid of the wind. I'm trying to type this with him on my lap with his chin laying on the keyboard....... he will follow me everywhere today, he really doesn't like it. Perhaps I can get him doggy ear plugs?>

Anyhoo, enjoy your day,
lotsa love,
