Over time, things change, including this blog – so time for an update. yes, there will still be randomness, because I tend to specialise in that, but there will be very little, if anything, about running. Who was I kidding? Runnning? Me? Not gonna happen.
I still like my quilting, and reading, and baking, and photography but most of my recent posts have been about card making, which I've rediscovered. The other stuff still makes the occasional appearance but not so much so.
--- over a month in fact since I last blogged. Please forgive me. I am pretty sure I made mention in a previous post, or two, about the fact the organisation I work for has been consulting with "the union" on a restructure. I'm also pretty sure I have mentioned the outcome. Well in the past month the job descriptions have been released, and the closing date is tomorrow. I submitted my application form on Friday, so hopefully things will get a lot less stressy now. At least until I know the outcome. I have already said that if I open a letter than says "We are sorry but......." then I will cry. But I will cross that bridge if I ever gt to it.
I've done a bit of crafting and the like in th past month - but I can't remember exactly what I've done.
so here's a selection
This is a Hunky Dory storybook kit - "Twas the night before Christmas"
This is not a very crisp picture, but the card was rather lovely - it's using Clarity stamps from Barbara Gray and the brayering techniques she is so very good at.
This is using a Jayne Netley Mayhew stamp - it's the black cat, I gave this to my son as his birthday card and he said "it looks like Smokey" which was the intention all along. I coloured in the eyes with a pear green promarker.
This one I gave to my mother - it's a Stampavie Sarah Kay stamp.
This one I gave to my sister - it didn't turn out as wll as I'd hoped - it is, again, using Hunky Dory products.
This is anotheer Rupert card - again from a kit - not too much imaginative creativity going on at the moment
Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.
For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.
In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.
Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
