Hello fellow Rockettes. Im on a roll as Ive remembered to post this for the second week in a row yay!! I just wanted to thank everyone for their lovely comments on last weeks post. I have drawn a line under all the negatives and have had a positive week Firstly I am grateful for our crop last Saturday, all the girls proved very supportive and have all agreed to help so that I am not left running the crop on my own. I always said what a great bunch our crop girls are and they have sure proved me right this last month or so. I had some fun doing a demo for Angela (Angel Crafts) of the lovely frantage products - I could get quite addicted to these. Heres a few of the tags I made for the crop.

Hello there. Despite my best intentions I've been missing in action for the last couple of Tuesdays but as things hsve calmed down somewhat I'm back this week. I really haven't been up to much on the crafty front so thought I'd share with you a couple of backgrounds I've done in my art journal. At our crop on Saturday Donna lent me her paper artsy chalk finish paints. I've been having a wee play with them and they do behave a bit differently to the acrylics I'm used to but after several sessions and a lot of layering I finally got two backgrounds I'm happy with. The colour palette is a bit more pastel than I'm used to but they do have a lovely soft finish and I broke out my fab new Kate Crane stamps, to use and I am totally in love with them.

Hello everyone. I've been missing in action a bit over the last couple of weeks and I'm sorry theres been nothing of any great interest to share with you. This was due to events completely outwith my control which once uncovered just seemed to spiral into ever more of an increasing nightmare. So sorry I havent been round to comment on all your lovely blogs either but I will put that to right this week. I'm pleased to say that I'm pretty confident everything has pretty much been resolved now as best as can be in all the circumstances but I have been left pretty much knocked right down by them. There's nothing worse than being let down and betrayed by someone you counted as a friend but I guess as usual you live and learn. It was made all the more difficult for me as folks who know me will know that after my husband of 20 years fell for and subsequently married my former best friend it took me a very long time to build up trust in anybody again and to have done thst and then find yourself betrayed again albeit in a completely different way has hit me very hard. I think what is worse too is that this person comes from the crafting world and up to now every crafter I have met has been just so lovely. I have worked alongside this person setting up and running our local crop for the last couple of years and to find out that all sorts of what can only be described as nastiness and deviousness has gone on behind my back has really sickened me to the core. this was made worse on Sunday night and Monday morning by a completely unwarranted attack publicly on me out of no where by a team member on an online forum I'm part of.

Morning folks. Ive been having a bit of a time of it lately and I missed completely joining in with this and Rocking your World Friday last week. I really havent had the time or the inclination to do much crafting but I did make a start at the weekend on a wee project but that is for the UK Scrappers End of Summer Blog Hop so I cant show you that yet. Come back on Monday 9 September when the hop goes live though and join in with us So the only bit of craftiness I have managed is to continue with my Intentions page in my Art, Doodle, Love book. Its getting there but its still not quite finished. Id like to completely fill up the whole lot before I move on from that to another page. I am still really loving picking this up and having a wee doodle although I do have a way to go compared to others I have seen. I started off using the Feber Castell Pitt pens but i kept ruining them writing on top of paint so bought a couple of the Pigma Micron ones and I must say that for doodling they are my new favourite. I have yet to try them over paint though lol. The colouring in has been done with Derwent Coloursoft pencils and I do love these, they are soft and blend easily and there is a fab colour range. Vickis to see what Ten Minute Tuesday is all about. Im not sure if she will have a post today or not as her kiddies might just be going back to school but theres always something lovely to look at on her blog.
