Happy Days!

No posts for two months and here I am - two posts in two days! But I had to share some good news ... our son asked his dream girl to marry him last night and she said YES!  They face timed us later and showed us the ring on her finger. I am one very happy lady! Congratulations Martin and Niamh :D

This afternoon I picked up my Teesha Moore style journal and had fun playing with collage, doodling and writing..... mucho fun!

I did these pages last year but have enjoyed looking at them again.... 

I've only got the back page to do in this journal and it will be finished  - best get to it then - I am definitely a completer!

Jumping back in!

So...... where to begin? 

Well we've moved - although that didn't go smoothly at all - the removal men didn't turn up on the 11th of June so we ended up staying in Durham for an extra night! Won't bore you with the stress details but here we are, safely ensconced in our new home in Clifton and discovering  the joys of the Calder Valley:D

My art stuff has been packed away for 2 months so I was itching to get my hands inky... which I did on Saturday as I was teaching a taster session at my most favourite art studio... Art from the Heart  Then on Monday our daughter came for a visit and whilst looking round my art room she asked if we could have a play - what can I say - I was only too delighted to oblige!

having fun!

We made an A5 sized tag ... it's not finished yet because she had to get back to York for an appointment but she did leave with very inky hands:) Always a sign of a good time!
Steph was enthralled in the whole process and can't wait to come back for more although she did say "I'll be bringing some gloves with me!" (she's a nurse and likes CLEAN hands) 

Ann and Pat came to visit bearing gifts (which I haven't photographed - bear with me - I'm not in sync yet its been a while since I blogged!) After they left I decided I'd have a little play for myself as Andrew was out. I worked in my A4 moleskin and this is how far I got. 
Many of you know my husband has just been ordained and this page is going to tell the story of my thoughts about it all - the title caption says some of what I feel! 

I'm going to leave it there for now - I've got lots of catching up to do - I've missed messing around in my art journals and now they're all unpacked they are calling out to me!
