Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Busy me!

Ok I hold my hands up I've been a neglectful blogger lately.  While I enjoyed our break away to stay with friend's it's really affected me since I've been back, everything seems to be taking me ages to complete and I don't seem to get through a day without gaining another injury. Yesterday I managed to cut myself & burn myself. One positive of my conditions is that I don't 'feel' such injuries in a normal way. Not good though when I don't realise I've done it until I see blood everywhere!

Another reason for my poor posting is I've been making birthday pressies for my good friend Debs, owner of Deb's Pen Pot blog so I thought my first post in ages would be to share with you the gifts I made.

 I bought this black mirror and got to work Paint Fusioneering it with daisies.

 I found these fab paper mache books in a craft shop while away and had to have them for Debs. She is a writer and a reader so knew that they'd be perfect.

I also made Debs a selection of cards using Paint fusion, some painted and some, like these two, coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens.  To celebrate Deb's birthday we went to our local farm shop/restaurant for lunch, where we had a cream tea! Yummy scones, copious amounts of cream and lashings of jam. Topped off with plenty of tea, coffee and chat. A very enjoyable way to spend a few hours I can tell you.

Don't forget to look out for the new challenge blog starting Monday 5th September over at Crafty Boots challenge blog where I'm proud to be a DT member.

Thanks for looking & hope to catch up with you all soon
Take care Zo x
