Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Mine was spent doing a combination of tidying up and relaxing with a little bit of art journaling.

Today I have a couple of art journal pages to reveal. This one which is Saturday’s effort is day 46 …..


It started off looking like this before I added some cut outs, a little pen doodling and watercolour pencil shading …..


And this is today’s effort day 47 …..


Which started off like this until I added some simple cut outs, pen doodling and watercolour pencil shading …..


Both examples are simple but quite effective. It’s amazing how simple circles and ovals can gussy up a page.

I’m enjoying the weekend. I didn’t get very far; I reluctantly ran an errand. I’m still a little worried about going out among folks although we have been given permission to get out a little more whilst still respecting social distancing. All pretty daunting really. We have to make an effort to move forward even if it’s scary.

Well, my friends, I guess that’s my report for this weekend. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.

  1. Beautiful pages. It is interesting to watch the shapes and textures appear on your journal. Do take your time in the “going out” but don’t lock yourself away forever. Are you able to get out in the countryside and just have a good walk or spread a blanket on a meadow or lawn to have a lunch in the fresh air and sunshine? I miss packing my bicycle on the car rack and going out to the state park riding the trails.The parks are open but the toilets are closed and the call of nature is something I need to answer. So, while we have had some nice days, all we have done is just ride around the community. Not at all the same feeling! My friend Carole ( had visitors in the “driveway” of her home sitting in chairs 8 ft apart. I think that sounds like a plan for me soon.


    1. Hi Mary, I’m sure I could get out to a lesser populated area for a good wander around soon. Visitors outside on the driveway 8 feet apart sounds like a reasonable plan. My neighbours are entertaining people from other households in their house. I suppose my neighbours feel that social distancing is beneath them. Some people are very selfish. I hope that for the most part the population of the northeast of England, where I live, realise that sacrifices now will bring rewards sooner. Thanks for popping in today Mary. Stay safe and be well x

      1. It is interesting that some don’t feel the need to distance, and may have the immunity to withstand becoming ill. Doing what is right for you and your family is the “best” you can do. You can’t lock away forever, but you can ere on the side of caution for a bit longer.

  2. I’m with you Lucie — only going out for essentials and at quiet times in the stores. We’re slightly easing up here in Canada – varies with the province and the city. I am enjoying seeing you develop your sketchbook. I am trying to decide if I will buy this DVD and, whilst viewing the preview ( thought of you and how you prep your pages. I have lots of Beaney and Littlejohn books and they are no longer travelling off the continent to deliver workshops. So I’m interested to see/hear them for a couple of hours! If you get intrigued with the needle felting they are doing in the preview, World of Wool is your go-to place!


    1. Hi Sue, I think you’ll enjoy a little Beaney and Littlejohn. It will definitely give you inspiration and perhaps a little push towards starting a new project or simply having a play which can lead to new exciting endeavours. I had a little look on World of Wool and it makes me want to participate in a little needle felting so I can machine stitch it and create wonderful new pieces to frame up. World of Wool is one that I didn’t even know about, so thanks for the link. I can see a new craft on the horizon. Thanks for popping in today. Stay safe and be well x
