Week 7: College of love

A small selection of things I love:

Copper and resin pendant: making Jewellery or baking, or crafting with the small child. I love making things
The great outdoors: I’m lucky to live in a pretty part of the world and recently I’ve been trying to make the most of it.
My small person: family. Love ’em
My cat: love the old feller, for all his faults and grumpiness.

See everyone else’s colleges:

A rare quiet moment in the car...

A rare quiet moment in the car…

This week we’ve been mostly discussing what all the different road signs mean, (Then I get accused of speeding by my small child (even though she can’t see the speedo)) and looking at the floods. plus singing Christmas Carols because they’re for all year round, right?

Focus on Life: Week 5

Get Outside!

Most of my weekend was spent sat in a car on various motorways. Looking at lots of bleak fields and horrendous flooding. Makes me grateful to live on a hill.

Focus on life 2014: week 4

The prompt this week is “word(s)”

image

Two words that equate to hours of fun when you’re 4. And fun is something that’s in short supply when you’re a grown up. (Allegedly.) So this is my pledge to have more fun this year.

(Kids don’t know they’re born  these days.  When I wad a kid you’d have to blow these up every time.  This has a sponge in so it self inflates!)

First crafting of 2014…

Well sort of. I started making these on a boring, nothing on telly night after Christmas. Then I put them in the airing cupboard to dry and forgot about them until tonight.

This is just the first batch. I’ll post the rest once they’re out of the pickle and have been the business end of a brass bristled brush.

The seashells are made from a sugarcraft mould I got at Cake International last year. The detailing on them is just gorgeous. The acorn shell is made from a silicone mould that I made myself last autumn. It turned out pretty well.

Focus on Life 2014: Week 3

Week Three: Black and White Photo of You

Oh I hate taking photos of myself, or being in photos. That’s why I’m the one generally behind the camera taking the photos….

However, I notice from everyone else’s posts that I’m not alone in feeling that way.

Focus on Life: Week 2

Week Two: A Silhouette

A photograph with a subject(s) captured in a shadowy outline with little or no detail against a bright background.

Thanks to Stargazing Live this week my eyes have been turned back upto the heavens, sadly I live too far south to see the Northern Lights (one day though) and there’s too much light pollution to see all but the brighest stars, but at least I can see the moon.

the moonlight through the tree in our front garden. I love how deep a blue the sky is.

And these are the trees behind our house.
