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...

Peace and Quiet



Welcome all, with an especially big welcome to the newest followers - I'm so delighted you decided to come on board.

There's a breath of gentle peace and quiet available over at Artistic Outpost today... and you may need it after that insanely full-on start to the month!

(For anyone behind the times, my latest project for Calico Crafts is here, the new Artistic Stamper challenge post is hereand the new Our Creative Corner challenge post is here - all unfortunately timetabled for the same day, sorry!!)

If you feel the need for a break, why not hop over and take another walk over the covered bridge, away into the forest, and have a little time to yourself!

There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations.
