Life Book 2014 lessons 2 and 3

I loved lesson two by Mickie Wilde.

I want to repeat the process for other ideas this year. Loved using grey and fluorescent pink acrylic. Sorry about photo - it is so dark again today. I have loved seeing all the variations on this one. Tam's 'Rainbow Catcher' version was inspiring.

Lesson three, by Carla Sonheim, was totally different and I was not sure about how I felt about it but I really began to enjoy it once I got going. I'm still finishing the lesson. Therefore I've only a sneak peek at the mo.


I finished watching lesson four last night so I am thinking about that today. I wonder what you have been contemplating? It was raining again today and it was rather grey until a brief blast of golden light this afternoon, which was rather glorious.

Thanks for stopping by today. Cherry x

Lesson 1 Lifebook 2014

Tam's first lesson was inspiring and it has taken a while for me to get it together. But I have really enjoyed working on it. Thanks Tam.

Colour and word of the year was important.

I am happy with the results. Moving on to lesson two now.

Lifebook 2014 Warming Up

Lifebook 2014 started on January 1st. It is a fabulous experience and I love the different lessons and that I can work at my pace. Thank you Tam and Gracie.

The warm up class was interesting and fab.

Half way through lesson one and dreaming of completing lesson two! Lesson three is fascinating - can't wait.

Hope January is being kind to you all. It is my least favourite time of year but I am trying to see the beauty this year. Driving through flood water is becoming an everyday occurrence here at the moment, on my way to work there are three places where I could do with a boat. The light has been stunning some mornings and evenings and the deer showed up on Friday crossing the lane.

Thanks for stopping by. Cherry X

Purple New Year

To kick start the year the gorgeous Purple Princess has thrown down the gauntlet on Purple ClubHouse Blog to create something purple. She is also generously offering a prize - so check the blog.

Unusually for me, I had a couple of hours yesterday morning before we went on a family walk - which was magical as we witnessed a Starling murmuration as the sunset. The littlest B said they were magicical moon birds, and I have to say we agreed with her. DH took some pics so will try to add one later.

Returning to the couple of free hours, I managed to play with memory glass, inks, JOFY stamps, beads, wire, magnets and GAs. This is my purple project all dried - which took a long time!

As a magnet for the fridge.


As a hanger for anywhere.

I can't wait to see what others create.

We have had a small family lunch today with our two elderly Grans (86 & 90) and I managed a very wet run this morning (avoiding the trees and flood water). A good start to 2014. I am also excited as Life Book 2014 started today so I have a new lesson to watch and create with - which is what I am about to do as DH is dropping off Grans and LO is watching Kung Fu Panda 2. I hope your start to the year has been a positive one.

Thanks for dropping by in this wet part of the world.
