Hi All. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts. It is still hot here and the promised rain has still not arrived so the grass is already beginning to turn brown which is unusual for us.
At Go Tag Thursday it their 6th challenge and the theme is Steampunk
This is a mixed media tag as I designed a background in Paint Shop Pro I mostly used my own creations but the bike was from Beyond the Fringe a long time ago. Thanks to Carla I have lots of unusual digital images. I then printed out the design and layered it then added steampunk bits to it.
Art Journal Journey have the theme, chosen by Yvonne, In my Garden There is---. I have shown things from our garden as there are a lot of different things in it even though it is quite small
This is a fig plant and the original one we bought 15 years ago. Every time we have moved dwellings we have taken cuttings with us. As we have been here quite a long time the fig here is quite large and full of figs ready to ripen. They taste delicious straight from the plant.
My neighbour has just had a baby so I will be going to take something for it when she comes home today. How things change. She has known since almost the start that she was having a boy and they would call him Oscar. He was due at the beginning of August but she went in two days ago and had a Caesarean section so he is here already and mother and baby are fine. He weighed 8 lbs 9 onzs
When I had my son I hadn't a clue until the baby arrived what sex it would be. He was 2 weeks overdue and I had to have my waters broken and it took 9 hours for him to make an appearance. He weighed 7 lbs 8 onzs. After a few days I was moved to a nursing home where I had to stay for 2 more weeks and only saw 'baby' at feeding time. I was fit and healthy and so was he but that sort of thing was the norm then.
The ramblings of an old lady!
Have a great day all
Love Chrissie xx
