Thanks to an understanding husband who walked the dog on his own twice today, I got a bit of time to play with my toys: my Gelli Plate, a Gyro-cut, cheap acrylic paint from the Art & Hobby shop and some Dealz stencils. And a photo of a woman from a magazine... She was confident and sassy and I liked the look of her. 

So, thank you BB!

Siobhan Ryan - 20 November - black lace top and black dress

Maybe I'm not watching the weather as much as I used to? Or maybe there haven't been many new outfits?

Anyways, here is one for you:

Labels and Envelopes

I've been printing labels and envelopes to match my art journals. Not the most exciting video, but I find that video shows the colours much better than pictures. Strange that. Or maybe not. I know nothing about photography. Maybe there is a good explanation.

Only watch this if you have 2.38 minutes to spare. Life is too short!

Another art journal

I've now got 3 journals ready to work with! No excuses!

Art Journal

Another video. Another art journal. With lovely soundtrack by my husband!!

One day I will add pictures and text to these journals. For now, I'm just happy to look at the not-quite-blank pages.

Art Journal Video

I told you I don't like the sound of my voice, didn't I? I couldn't bear to watch my first video because of that. So, this time, I used captions instead. With a soundtrack by Chris Zabriskie, which I got from the Free Music Archive.


Wheiii - Went to a movie! A 3D movie even!

Gravity, with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, is well worth the hour and a half of your time. He's an experienced astronaut on his last space walk. She's a  specialist of some sort on her first space mission. She's done the training. But she doesn't feel comfortable in space.

Something goes wrong. Very wrong. It's just the two of them. In space. Alone. How to survive? How to get home?

A simple story, in a way. But it looks fantastic too. And it doesn't have the annoying Hollywood long introduction and wrapping-up sections. So it just tells the central story, nothing else. And you're grateful for it. That's all you need. That's all you want.

And for those of you who are more interested in the technical details, check out this page and Wikipedia.

Glenveagh National Park

I was going through a few photos this morning, and I decided to put them together into a little slideshow of Glenveagh National Park. It's nice to look back at the summer we had - Today is a grey, cold, November day. But it will be Christmas before you know it!

(Sorry for the abrupt ending to the music!)

Colourful Bubble Wrap

I had a lot of fun printing these. I know they are a bit shapeless, but the colours make me very happy.

Malice or Incompetence

I did say I would try a video to show you my journal pages. I'm starting small. Plus I don't like to watch big long videos on YouTube - life is too short, as far as I'm concerned.

The only problem is that I don't like my voice. But I'll get over it, hopefully!

Pooh Bear Battle

Timber had a wonderful time at the beach on Monday. And afterwards, he got to play tug with Stan!
