It is DD Hannah's Man's Birthday at the end of the week and I've been hovering around my art table, faffing with the tiniest scraps and making the slowest of progress over several weeks (what has happened to my creativity I wonder?) and, when I started fiddling, I didn't know what would come of it or, where it would be headed. But happily, it became destined for lovely Neil. He is one of our newest menfolk but fits our family as if into his own glove. Gawd knows what he makes of us and our emotional outpourings and enthusiasms....! I have though, managed to make something I'm happy enough to post about and that feels like a hugely encouraging thing. I have several more very significant Birthdays before the end of this month so hopefully that wasn't my lot creativity wise and just maybe I'll keep it together enough to continue. Its nice to be back.


  1. Wow! That's definitely not your lot creativity wise - you've got your foot in the door, lady, now go for it and push it open the whole way - go on!

    Neil will be so pleased you made this lovely card for him - and Hannah will really appreciate the effort too.
