I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

A little bit of delight

We're back in one of those Sneak Peek Weeks here at Words and Pictures!  For starters, it's my turn over at the PaperArtsy blog again this week, so here's the first of your sneak peeks.

Scheduling meant these November projects were made right at the very last moment before packing my craft stash for the big move - so what I really wanted to do was allow myself a bit of crafting delight before putting everything away.


And you can see the results if you hop over to PaperArtsy...  Making these certainly offered me a little breathing space and a great deal of pleasure in the midst of house-moving chaos.  I hope you like them!

See you again very soon with another sneak peek!

To business that we love we rise betime,
And go to't with delight.
From Antony and Cleopatra, by William Shakespeare

The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.
