Move over grinch, the devil is here!!

This is my first set of prismacolour pencils! Julie found a box of 12 at a closing art shop! So excited to play with them but she isn’t letting me have them yet. So so so so mean!


Finally discovered magnolia stamps!

Have recently got my first 3 magnolia Tilda stamps! Omg they are seriously cute! Can’t wait for the energy and time to stamp and colour them, they’re just begging for pinks and greens. Have a major wish list now too 🙂

Will post the finished images!


Still struggling with sleepy

I can’t wait to see the doctor. Couldn’t get an appointment until the 24th! This tiredness is getting worse. Eating, showering, colouring all make me exhausted. I’m hating wasting so much time! There’s so much stuff I want to do with my days I don’t want to spend them sleeping.


Some apology flowers for my partner. I promised her I wouldn’t fall asleep before bedtime and I did.

Feeling low

Having a tough day. Sick of know it all teens. Sick of being constantly tired. Sick of it all. Blah. Trying to craft but am too tired.


Started my niece’s board book. Making her a book full of photos and stories of her distant family.

I had a mystery virus early in the year and have been chronically tired ever since. We’re now thinking it was glandular fever?

New colourings!

Finally got a chance to do some colouring, got two finished.


I am getting better, just shows that practice is helping!

So over people, over little girls being insolent and disrespectful. Just want to hide in bed and colour and stamp.

How can a father choose to leave his girlfriend and month old son? Even worse, he’s told her if she doesn’t go home with us tomorrow he’s leaving her. And he says he isn’t cheating! Bullshit! He knew that Emily was hard work before he slept with her. He chose to have a baby with her and now it’s too hard. Fucking pathetic.


I am away with my partner visiting her daughter and 4 week old grandson and as cute as he is I am MISSING colouring!
I have decided to repaint my craft room, purple just isn’t doing it anymore.

Hopefully this mango with a yellow trim will be super creative conductive!

I did bring a bunch of preprinted digi stamps with me to show Emily (Julie’s daughter) how to colour with baby oil. During her pregnancy she found colouring books to be a good way to cut back her stress levels so she might like this.

A beary happy first post!

Party Bear!

I had to post this guy as a celebration for my first post!

I coloured him with Mont Marte Coloured Pencils and baby oil. Printed on Stampin’ Up cardstock.

I’m starting this blog to capture my journey through learning the paper crafts that I love so much. I love to scrapbook, stamp and card-make. I can no longer work fulltime to to depression and so spend as much time as I can in my study getting messy. I do work 6 hours a week with a 15 year old disabled girl who is fantastic fun! I thought having a blog would help me to see how my skills are progressing as well as hopefully get in contact with other crafty peeps! yeah, I said Peeps!
