The House of Bears

Hello to everyone who drops by Jumbled Crafts-hope your day is going well

I love the Jane Austen quotes challenges at The House of Bears and this is my take on one from this month's list

Not a pretty page-sorry bears. I did the background with distressed inks and a blob of something that just appeared from nowhere--honest. The images were all ones I found on the net.

Love Chrissie x


  1. Yes, this could be true of many neighbourhoods! Love what you have made! Hugs,

  2. Oh we love this, the pages are fab with the quote and we have a sneaky feeling this may be the most used of this month's quotes. We like all the images you've used to represent the quote. Fab work and thank you so much for joining with us again.

  3. WOW - it may not be pretty but it's fabulous

  4. I love that look Chrissie ! And the images you have chosen work together so well ! Hope you are having a lovely sunday Sweetie ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  5. Fabulous page! I agree with the quote - my hubby is poorly at the moment and my neighbours on both sides texted after a few days when they noticed his car hadn't moved. They wanted to check we were ok. It was lovely to know they cared! xx

  6. Pretty fabulous! love what you have created... Gill x

  7. Now that's what every neighbourhood should look like, people should look after each other! Pretty cool page Chrissie! Hugs, Ira x

  8. Hi Chrissie, great page, reminds me of how much we value our good neighbours. Cheers, Shirleyx

  9. it´s a wonderful spread Chrissie!

    So I am a hopeful visitor in future.. maybe you will join us over on Art Journal Journey once..

    I would be very happy to welcome you there too...

  10. What a dramatic take on the quote... love all the images you've brought together!

  11. Your page was saved and looks great. I know how you feel, though, once I got chocolate smudge on one of my Knittington Fairy designs...don't ask. It was tramatic, indeed.

    Sending love and hugs,

  12. Haha! This is great! Marina

  13. This is so true! I love that you've made it modern.

  14. Love your take on the quote, what a great page x
