As some of you may know we have not been able to use our car for a while(it is at the garage today - fingers crossed it's not too serious!)
Time to stay to home you might think - hmmm, so did I.....but with the help of public transport...... on Monday we met up with my youngest for lunch, went to the cinema on Tuesday, part 1 of my birthday treat from my family was on Wednesday(I'll tell you all about it on Tuesday!!, yesterday was a Gym trip and then Gardening Committee meeting in the afternoon!
I was ready for a break so hubby took the car in for 8.00 this morning and came back again for lunch and has now gone to town so that when the garage say the car is ready he hasn't so far to go(the garage is on the other side of town!)
I got some household chores done in record time this morning and then spent some time playing.
I am still managing to keep up with the Gelliplate challenge - sometimes it's only a matter of 15 minutes or so but today's has taken slightly longer!
What I really wanted to do was make a journal page for Rosie's 'Spring' theme at Art Journal Journey, so here it is.
Of course we enjoyed our outings although none of them took us near the countryside (although we did manage a couple of walks from the bus stop along by the river)
While at our meeting yesterday we mentioned that maybe in a couple of years we would be giving up our caravan, something we have been talking about for a while - yes we do love it - it is like our second home - but we are paying management fees for both places and are wondering whether its the best use of our money!!
We will make the most of it for a couple of Summers and see how we feel then. Our friends were surprised and asked were we sure....no we are not!!!
We haven't been for a few weeks and we are missing it, are the flowers blooming, what are the birds doing, are there lambs in the field(that we can now see again!)????
We intend travelling up tomorrow, I am going up with my friends Sarah and Helen anyway for a workshop at Rowan Tree Crafts so hubby will follow on later and warm up the caravan!
My page was made by spraying some ink then adding some stencilling and stamping. The flowers are Paper Artsy, Kay Carling ones and they have lovely bendy stems that stay put well on my acrylic block.
The Crafty Individuals bird stamp is coloured with Inktense pencils.
The Dylusions quote sums up what we are both feeling at the moment.
Of course, all these outings have meant that my blog, and commenting on blogs I love, have had to be put on hold but I am hoping to try and catch up some time soon!
I hope to show you the few of my Gelli printing experiments too!
Thanks for looking, Chris
