Hi All. Hope you are ready to start crafting again and that it is a nice day where you are. Thank you for dropping in at Jumbled Crafts. We have a heavy frost here and everything looks crisp and white though it is very cold so I am not going out unless it improves.
At Art Journal Journey their challenge for December was chosen by Valerie and her theme is Light and Darkness
I made this page and added my own quote after chatting to my neighbour yesterday. He needed to chat about a problem and thought that the best thing to do was run away from it. For some unknown reason these words came out of my mouth. It appeared to help him at the time or maybe it just confused him. It made for a good idea for an AJJ page anyway.
We walked along the seafront on Boxing Day and there was a gathering of people ahead of us, then they all ran onto the beach and down to the sea.
About half of them went for a swim in the freezing cold water. They used to do this at North Bay here in Bridlington but it is the first time I have seen it on the South Beach.
This was taken on a sunnier day with our shadows climbing the paddling pool steps.
Last week we went to Hull for the day and walked down to the harbour. The building on the left is called The Deep and is a huge place full of aquariums. Some very big ones where people can swim with sharks--never seen anyone swimming with them but all the fish are very beautiful.
We walked back a different way into town and this is part of a Mandela Graffiti wall that stretches quite a long way. The road leads to the museum quarter of the town and all the museums are well worth a visit and all have quite different themes.
A mixed bag for you today-hope you enjoyed it
Love Chrissie xx
