Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having a brilliant bank holiday. It’s been a good weekend here in my little world. Today is Monday the bank holiday. Contrary to the usual, the sun is shining brightly, the wind has finally died down and it’s a splendid day. Quite often our bank holidays are a total washout. So, it’s a real blessing to have such a such brilliant weather today.

As I promised on Friday, I have set some time aside to be creative. Here are the art journal pages I created over the last three days …..


Here’s what this page looked like before I added embellishments.

Messing around with art supplies has somehow become the new normal from day to day. I do a few chores, cook some meals, spend a little time tidying up in the garden which then gives me permission to play with paint and paper etc. What a difference a couple of months makes. My thing would normally be to play with fabric.

Something I have recently noticed, I do far more cooking from scratch. Because there are very few visits to the supermarket, I do not purchase ready meals anymore. I’m not a super-duper cook but we are eating well; plenty of fruit and veg and I even started baking a little now and again.

Well, my lovely friends, that’s my report for today. 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. Well done again on the journaling, though I do hope to see some of your other crafts coming back from time to time too. I know we’ve all changed somewhat of late, but let’s not forget some of our other wonderful achievements.(yours were always super). I’ve basically always cooked from scratch & we are quite simple eaters as I’ve a few allergies. Gardening is also a great stress buster, as is being outdoors. Have a good week, take care, stay safe & huggles.


    1. Hi Susan, rest assured that I haven’t given up quilt making for good. I have started a new applique project inspired by my art journal over the weekend. My journal is having a positive affect on me. It may just be that my quilt makers block is lifting. Thanks for popping in today. Stay home and be well x
