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!

Wednesday, 7 August 2013


Well today is Baxter's 8th birthday so I thought it was only fitting to share with you a rather cute picture of him chilling out in his hidey (under the snooker table!) - 

Bless him, he is starting to look quite distinguished with flecks of grey appearing throughout his coat!

Right desk, I best get on with it otherwise Queen Julia of desk (where you need to go to link up) will be telling me off. Bit boring and normal for me, as in it's the same as most weeks! - 

Check out my new piece of colouring on my wall!

Radio - check. Fan - check. Pens - check. Colouring - check!

Right I wish you all a good day, going to get a few chores done then grab a coffee and return here to have a nose at your desks!
Take care Zo xx

Zoe,your colouring is always amazing and to see a larger piece really highlights the attention and detail you put into every piece.

Happy Birthday Baxter, and isn;t it time to store that fan? It feels like summer is over :( I love the composite piece, but then you know I love your colouring - and the way you do it with such seemingly casual abandon! I sweat over every tiny image. :)

Happy WOYWW!

Fab colouring on your wall, Lady! I take it that the images are Some Odd Girl? Correct me if I'm wrong (I most likely am!!! LOL) Loving the unicorn girly...

Thanks for stopping by!

awesome picture of Baxter...He is looking very distinguished! I love that colored piece on the wall Zo it is awesome! Love what a wonderful job you do. I have a question for you seem to notice that the Spectrum Noirs seem to dry out faster then the copics did when using them? I have some that I know I haven't used more then once are dry on one end or the other... frustrating. Thanks for stopping by my desk and commenting. Have a great week. Vickie #36

Happy Birthday Baxter at 8 years young x
should get cooler soon so you might get more done not needing the fan as much - love your dolls on the wall.

back again re SN! have bought a couple refills for the SN pens and I think I will continue to refill them cause they are still more cost effective in the long run. I emailed Crafter's Companion about it and still haven't heard back regarding why they are dry. That might make me change brands. can't handle a dealer that doesn't work with their customers. Thanks for answering so quickly.

Happy Birthday Baxter...Mufftypup sends her love ^..^
I never think of her as old but she's 10 in December, so if she wasn't cream coloured she'd probably have grey hairs too.
Fantastic colouring're the best!
By the way, love your new photo.
Enjoy WOYWW and thanks for popping by my way ealier.
