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, 16 September 2015


Hello everyone - lovely to see you. If you've not been by recently you will note the new design and see posts that are not always craft related. I've decided that as I'm not posting DT craft work now I will blog about all areas of my life. Would love you to still read them and leave me some love!

Anyway am here to join in with Julia's Stamping Ground to share my desk. 

 So the right side - usual pens and you will spot an image that's been coloured awaiting to be put onto a card.
 Window side sees 2 bookart projects that have been decorated and were drying overnight.
 I can't share one as it's recipient is online but I can share this 'MUM' one as my mum doesn't use the internet!
I've inked it with a soft blue. it's mum's birthday next week so this is one of her presents. Do you think she'll like it?!

So that's me. Off to the vets so that Baxter can have his annual jab. Will pop round as many desks as possible later.

Take care Zo xx

My daughter and I have pen envy!

New design was a bit of a shock! I like it, looks very modern yet easy to read.
I can understand where you are coming from as I have three blogs - one for each part of my life - and sometimes, just sometimes I think that if I only had one ...... maybe later ....

Glad you have some new medications, it's good to revisit the scene sometimes instead of carrying on, medical science does not stand still in all cases. I hope they help to improve your life.
Have a good week

I'm sure your mum will love it - I think it's so clever the way you've made the word 'mum' in the book - it's something I would love to have a go at but I don't have a clue where to start! I scrolled down to have a bit of a nose and came across your butterfly and heart - now I'm super-impressed and really need to make a moth! They are all fantastic! Hope you have a great week, and thanks for your visit earlier,

A lovely busy desk. I just tried alcohol markers for the first time recently, and found I have too few colours :) will take me some years to gather as many as you have :) thanks for your visit, happy woyww!

Great storage for your pens - you've got so many! And lovely book art projects. I've only noticed it says 'mum' when you mentioned it. Have a crafty week! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #38

Sue said...

The books are so unusual.

I am so envious of your pen collection:)

This book folding lark is so clever...I'm amazed at how great bent paper can look! I seriously do not have the patience for that though :-)
Having done some adult colouring (wink!) I now understand why you need all those tones...I don't have enough!
Hugs, LLJ 12 xxx

Shoshi said...

The bookart is amazing - I've seen quite a bit of it about lately and am well impressed with it, and haven't a clue how it's done!! I love all your colourful array of pens too, and the general busy and productive atmosphere in your creative space. Thanks for your visit and your nice comment - thanks for the hugs and good wishes, and I'm so glad you like my little box.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #30

VonnyK said...

Wow that book art is amazing. It's so clever the way it forms the word, I love it. I'm envious of your pen collection, I only have a few fineliners and I've just started the adult colouring. It's so hard with just a few colours, I keep wanting to break out the paints! That shoe in the first picture is just stunning.
Have a great week,
Von #8

Handcrafted gifts are the best so I'm sure your Mum will love it. I almost didn't see the "MUM" because here in the Philippines, we would spell it Mom but when I figured it out I thought it was so clever!
Happy WOYWW and thanks so much for already dropping by!
Hugs, peggy aplSEEDS

Fun post...I've always loved the book folding projects. Can't wait to see it opened up. I don't think I'd have the patience, but who knows life changes !!
Thanks for the visit, always love the comments. Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Zoe, thanks for visiting earlier. Book folding is a lovely art, I am sure your mum will love it. You must have the patience of a saint!!

RosA said...

Yes, I think that's a good present. Love your colouring. I was wondering about the lovely colouring on the woyww anniversary ATC I received. Did you use a stamped image? It was gorgeous.

Julia Dunnit said...

Yeah, I think your Mum will love it! Supermzoom reveals a beautifully coloured image of course, and such a neat space, its calming my eyes! Loving the new look 'allround' blog.

Bernice said...

A great present - I'm sure your Mum will love it. Hope Baxter behaved well for the vet - have to take my daughter for Meningitis jabs before Uni next week so its jabs all round at the moment!!
