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.

WOYWW 373 - oops I've missed a few!

Hello desk dashers & all my followers.

Well I have to say sorry - I've been a rubbish blogger these last few weeks. But I'm back today to join in with WOYWW over at The Stamping Ground - lovely to see Julia well on her way to recovery and getting stronger every day.

So my desk is colouring related - I've been receiving the monthly colouring lessons from Kit and Clowder but have just been saving them. But decided I need to start actually doing.

 So the right side has all the pens out I need for my lesson. If you are eagled eyed you may spot some new purchases up in my spice rack!! (Can't spot them - distress crayons & whipped Spackle!)
 Window side shows my on going progress. I will share it when finished! This is how I learn all of my colouring techniques. I put the practice in and take lessons. I watch the class video first then use the step-by-step instructions to guide me though. I do like to tweak things as I do have confidence in my colouring so sometimes do my own thing!

Thought I'd also share these pics. As you all know Keagan is living his dream working in horse racing. His supervisor took these photos the other day. 
 In action cantering.
 Love this photo. Shows the stunning scenary where Keagan is and such a fab pic of Keagan.
 More cantering.
More cantering and scenary!

To see my boy doing what he's always dreamed of makes me so proud. 
Hope you enjoyed seeing these as much as I do.

Take care Zo xx

Tuesday's treat - blue & white!

So today I'm back to share a colour co-ordinated range of items from Creative Together!

Monday Magic - Flowers in your hair.

Good morning!

So this week I'm going to highlight some of our fabulous products over on Creative Together
I've deliberately not flooded my social media recently with constant links and photos from our shop. Too much oftens means people scroll by. 

But this week I hope everyone will stop and have a look.

So I'm starting with Lisa's stunning hair combs - these can be worn for many occasions and will suit most hair styles.

The beauty with these are that if you look after them they can be worn over and over again. Weddings. Christenings. Special occasions. Or if you just fancy having pretty hair for the day!

First up is the beautiful purple Phalaenopsis Orchid.

Then there's the stunning lilac and white marble Rose.

We also have this fabulous royal blue Rose

Finally there's the pretty ivory Phalaenopsis Orchid.

I'm sure you'll all agree these are stunning. Lisa uses professional quality artificial flowers & accents when creating these and they are all finished to a high standard.

At Creative Together both myself and Lisa are happy to discuss any requirements you may have. Please feel free to get in touch with us any time.

Take care Zo
