Mini Book Swap

Some of my uber talented crafting buddies decided to do a mini book swap. It has been so much fun and as it ended yesterday it has been fabulous watching all the different techniques and approaches appear.

The lovely Lilian and Debs sent me theirs and I love them both. Lilian's Spring inspired book.


Deb's button book - how cute is this...

I decided on some wood cut frames, watercolours, inchie stamps and a quote about friendship.

I absolutely loved this swap. Thank you to Clare for organising it.

Journal 52 Weeks 6-9 and a birthday.

Week Six - beneath your feet

Week Eight - use a skull and comment on what goes on inside

Week Seven - Nerdy Love

Week Nine - A pet peeve or a love (mine is a two-sided idea) smiling - we should do more and I love Seeing smiling faces.

LO turned 8 last week and much baking ensued.

Including a cake sale at school for Tanzanian partner school!

Lots of fun and squealing. Thanks for stopping by. Cherry x

September 1st - 13th

September has been getting used to a new schedule and a new routine. The house is changing, school runs have been introduced, new places to craft, knitting and generally getting used to not going to work and becoming less mobile.

How has the beginning of September been for you?

Sunday, 30 August 2015


I can't quite believe that it is the end of August already and all the beautiful summer pictures are being replaced in blog land by thoughts of Christmas - deeply scary.

I have enjoyed August for the quiet and the gentle pace. I am re-discovering the love of SLOW, both literally and metaphorically. It is odd to think that I would usually be gearing up at this point for the hectic term ahead, but instead this year I find myself watching others doing this with no need to do it myself. I am enjoying that my SLOW is going to continue and I am going to dance to the beat of my own music for a little while longer.

Fond farewell August I have enjoyed you.

I hope you have enjoyed August too.

Thanks for stopping in. C xxx
