About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Thursday Adventure ~ Willand ~ Garden Party

Today's Thursday Adventure took me to a garden party in Willand.  For the last seven years Mary has held a garden party for the lipreading Phoenix group.  For many of those years I've been helping.  Today is the last one, it is bittersweet, I love them and will miss them but they are a lot of hard work.

To go out with a bang I made sure there were extra special afternoon tea nibbles and even some menus to go with it.

I have been making Christmas Cards for a while now but I recently fell in love with Hobby Art stamps and have loved turning these into Christmas Cards

This last card should have been my entry in the flower show at the weekend but I stupidly forgot and had my name on the insert.  I didn't have time to colour another one up so had to make do with what I had coloured.

These photos were taken on 7th August but I didn't want to swamp the blog with posts at the time.

I was busy colouring away so I had some images for cards and suddenly something caught my eye, I looked up and a bright red glow was coming from both sides the house.  A quick trip to the kitchen made me think oh despite the torrential rain we may have a sunset.  Needless to say I grabbed the camera and took these.

As some of my suffering long term readers know I have for the last few years entered the village flower show, this year I entered six categories, Swiss Roll, Cheese Scones, Meringue, Greetings Card, An item of any material or medium and photography {theme flowers and plants}.  

These are my entries and any results.  Those with no cards underneath received no criticism or comment.

All insert verses are written by me!
