getting greedy...

Yesterday, for once I decided "get painty woman" and did. I didn't let anything stand in my way, including the vacuum cleaner and the paperwork (which I'm happily being distracted from while I write this quick post)

I need to make some postcards. And in a little over an hour - I made five postcards.  

Sneaks above and scraps below. 

Photo's were taken using Instagram.  Loving it so far! Wondering about getting them printed off.  Square images appeal to me.  Why didn't I get this app before now?! 

Right, back to the paperwork trying to fall off my desk the pile is so high.  
Thanks for stopping by!

ten minutes..

 I found a sheet of scratch paper sitting on my desk and I couldn't bin it, so I stuck it in my journal. Added some stamping with a Donna Downey stamp and some alphabet rub-on's I picked up in WHSmiths a millennium ago.  This is my kind of tiding up! 

It's not done, needs something else, but so far I like. All I need is another ten minute urge to finish it off. 

Bye for now

loving the lofty view...

what has fast become my favourite part of having the loft converted is the clear view of the sun rising each morning. I don't think I will ever tire of this. It's just a shame we have other rooftops in the way but I can open the window's nice and wide to get shots like these even with those other pesky houses about.

Oh and getting a different way to view the weather on the windows. Although when we had snow to open the blinds and find a blanket of white looking back at me was a little unnerving at first.

the return of the dribble...

Finally I found some time a couple of weeks ago to have a play in Palma's journal for our Collabor-ART pairs journal.  She has a theme  - Spice, so I'm taking that down a colour route. Or at least I did this time.  This is one of the new backgrounds I made. I love the white space I've left in the middle. Wonder what she'll do with it!
