On my desk this week is a half done layout made from scraps along with a lot of other, erm, mayhem.

You can however see some of the desk surface which, I guess, makes it tidier than normal!!

I'm gearing up for my guest designer spot at Counterfeit Kit Club which starts tomorrow, and I'm getting ready for National Scrapbook Day which is this weekend, and I'm going to get some nephew cuddles today, and maybe finish off this layout.  It is all pretty good really!!

Hope you are all having a positive week, hugs for those that aren't, and see you at your desk!


  1. Hi Laura - glad that you're enjoying life to the full at the mo. Have a great week, Chris # 15

  2. Just tried to post but it threw me out so here goes again
    Thanks for the visit, yes the Secret Garden paper quality is very poor but I bought some Polychromos pencils and they are absolutely beautiful.
    Just looked at your fabulous Sparrowhawk photo, you got the moment perfectly. Can't help feeling sorry for the Sparrow though.

  3. Sounds like a fun day/week! I like the graphical design you've got going on your desk. Good luck with your guest designer spot -- I love the idea of the Counterfeit Kit, but haven't ever made one -- right before (inter)National Scrapbooking Day is a good time to think of it. Happy WOYWW. ~ Laura #90

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
