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, 2 April 2014


Morni......okay it's actually afternoon now. I had a lie in so only just in the craft room. I have been missing of late, not been good so only doing what was needed rather than what I wanted to do. I did make it to footy the other day though had to leave before the end as I wasn't feeling too well and missed the winning goal! Me and Keagan celebrated in the car (we were at traffic lights) much to the amusement of a man sat in his parked car!!

Anyway I'm here, so pop over to Julia's desk to join in, link up or just desk dash!

I recently bought some Neena Desert Storm (Kraft) card from Crafter's Companion which they brought out to use with markers. I decided to colour the same image with the same colours to see the different effect of colouring on white v kraft.

Desk - right side, usual suspects

Window side with my colouring experiment still going on. 
And a close up of my colouring so far. 
Amazing the difference despite I have used identical colours and have coloured it as close to identical as possible!

So that's me, I've got coffee and food. So today I'm going to finish the colouring and then I'll try get round some of you when I can. I'm okay though, just restless with pain and having to only spend short spells doing anything. 

Take care Zo xx

Ah mate, you've had a tough old time recently, haven't you? Sorry to hear that you've not been well. You gotta rest up and get better so's you can come to the crop!! That's an order - it wouldn't be the same without you!!!
It's amazing the difference a background can make...the colours look completely different!

So sorry to hear you have not been feeling too well Zoe make sure you look after yourself. Love the colouring you are doing, and your tidy desk, mine looks like a bomb has hit it at the moment, am going to have a quick tidy around as soon as i have caught up with everyone. As you can see I have changed the name of my blog and would love it if you continued to follow me by updating your link to my new blog. Love Alison xxx

Aw Zoe, so glad to see you here, and so glad you're listening to your bod and doing in between resting...the restlessness caused by pain must be hard to deal with, you're incredibly patient. I hope the colouring helps when you're able to sit still -at least as a distraction. I love the differences that the Kraft card causes, like getting as lightly grungy set of pens! As usual, fantastically coloured..

Hi Zoe, sorry you are still not feeling too good - fingers crossed you feel better soon - as LLJ says, we need you to be fit for the crop! That colouring is amazing, I really like the kraft one. Look after yourself hun, you are the priority. Sending cyber hugs, Cindy xx

Sorry to hear you're still struggling, healthwise. Take care of yourself - you're very precious! The difference in colouring is incredible, and I'm green with envy over your fab collection of pens - enjoy, and have a great week. Chris 53

Listen up you need to look after yourself and take it easy. Your colouring is really brilliant but I am not a fan of the craft card for cards or colouring full stop. I much prefer the cleaner and crisper look. Either way your colouring is astounding,. Lots of hugs coming your way from Yoda and I.

Just keep resting between jobs ..... That's the way:-)
Love the colouring the difference looks like Ms Jeckle verses Ms Hyde. I think I like the tones in the kraft card best
Hope you have a good week and font over do it

I would have loved to see the face of the chap in the car!! Such a shame the body is fighting back....sometimes you just have to listen, no matter how hard it seems.

Cannot believe the colours are the same, they really do make a difference.
Love and hugs to Baxter
