When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Catching up - new hair, stamps & colouring.

Hello to you all. 

Now I've stepped back from blogging for a few weeks to deliberate about how I want to go forwards with it.

While I'll continue to share crafty makes and join in with sharing my desk. I thought I'd actually make an effort to use my blog for more than just crafts. I'm just not creating enough to maintain it as craft only. I know I tried this once before but failed to maintain it. So I'm trying again. With renewed determination!

So today I'm here to catch up. Share what's been going on. First up is my hair - 

 Not sure how it comes across on your screen but it's definitely vibrant pink/purple. The colour is called Pure Purple. But believe me when I say it's a lot more bold pink! But I don't care I love it!!

I've not done a lot of colouring so wanted to learn more techniques so I signed up to the Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature colouring class.
 Here's my first project - the Lillies lesson. Probably one of the harder lessons but I just got on with it and really enjoyed colouring these. I want to do them in different colours now I know how to do them.

I've not bought any craft stash for ages but I came across Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps at a super price. So I had to get them. I've used them to make a few birthday cards.

 I sprayed a piece of card with different inks and left to dry. I then stamped the birds and cut them out. I added glossy accents and some sparkle. I also added white paint to pick out some detail.

As a football fan I'm thoroughly enjoying having multiple games on each day. I've watched or listened to every one so far!

Take care Zo xx

I love your hair, and also those crazy birds! I am also enjoying the football but not able to listen to the afternoon games due to work! will be a pain missing the England Wales game live; am debating trying to avoid the result till I get home to watch the recording...
