Journal Page and Altered Box

Hello All. Hope your week is going well. I am enjoying a quiet week as the Care Home is still closed to visitors. I have been knitting lots more Twiddle Muffs as word is spreading that I am making them and people are asking if they can order one. I am not charging for them but may have to start asking for a small donation as the things I add to them have all run out now so I will need to buy some more.

Art Journal Journey have 'If You Go Down in the Woods' and it is going well indeed

This is a revamped version of a digital page I created way back in 2005. At the time I had a passion for painting my own fairies-afraid this one looks as though she is wearing baggy knickers under her tights :) It is so funny to find old folders with things I made a long time ago but I will enjoy changing them a bit I'm sure.


 I am joining in at Dragon's Lair Challenge Blog where they have a grid for you to choose a line


I chose Pink, Box and Bow as my line


I covered a box for Easter as it had the little eggs inside. I am giving it to my husband but not sure he will be keen on the sentiment. I added this because I wanted to enter the Make My Monday Challenge as one of my blog buddies is a DT member there and the theme this time is Lucky. I made the plaid paper and the sentiment card in Paint Shop Pro.

Hope your day goes well

Love Chrissie xx

  5. I love your re-worked page Chrissie. had to smile at the baggy knickers, but it just looks like a pretty frill on her skirt to me. Love the box as well.
    You have found a gap with the twiddle muffs, I am not surprised that they are popular. Enjoy the break from all the visiting MIL is in good hands.

  11. The faerie page is really interesting (can't say I noticed the baggy knickers!) and I'm sure your hubby will be a lot more interested by the chocolate eggs than the outside to notice the sentiment!
