Try it on Tuesday

Hi All

I hope you have had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend. 

Try it on Tuesday have Fire and Ice as their theme this time and there are some amazing ideas from the talented team there.


I did a digital piece this time. I found the quote on Google and then made a picture of what came into my mind from the quote.

Plenty of time to join in this great challenge.


Our humidifier came to the end of its days a few weeks ago so Vic made a garden robot out of the pieces and other things he found here and there. The robot is called Ray Darr and will go into the garden when the weather gets better. I think he is going to have a few solar lights somewhere as well so should be a fun addition to our garden art.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Try it on Tuesday and Tag Tuesday

Hi All

Hope you are all well and keeping warm or cool depending where you are in the world. We have thick frost today and a threat of snow but not much sign of any yet thank goodness.

At Try it on Tuesday there are still 2 days left to make something using your favourite things or favourite methods of crafting. Lots of wonderful ideas, as always, from the talented team 


I made a tag using one of my favourite quotes by Albert Einstein. I love to make backgrounds using chalks and then I made a digital background to print out on the chalked one. The fish are a stencil by Lynell Harlow and it is dated 2007 but I only just got it when my daughter brought me lots of metal stencils. Not sure I know how to use them properly as yet.

I would also like to enter this at Tag Tuesday where the theme is Anything Goes this time and still over a week to enter there. Also a prize draw for one lucky person who enters.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day

Love Chrissie xx

New Beginnings at Tag Tuesday

Hello Everyone

I hope that 2018 has started well for you.

At Tag Tuesday the theme there for the next 2 weeks is New Beginnings chosen by Wilma and she has made a wonderful tag for a great start to the New Year.


My tag is less explosive with little birds in a nest, an event that happens every year all over the world. 

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

A Very Happy 2018

Hello All My Wonderful Blog Friends

Hope you are ready for the start of a New Year full of joy and happiness with peace in your life.

Every year starts in a special way for me as it is my birthday. Today I am 76 and it doesn't seem too long ago that I was 60 and looking forward to being a pensioner. The 16 years have flown by and I have enjoyed such a lot of happy and varied times along the way. I am full of hope for the future and  more adventures to come. Thank you for joining me.


Love as always Chrissie xx
