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...

Gentle Journalling

Hi all!  Just a quick heads-up today...  If you missed my gentle journalling page, there's another chance to catch it over at Artistic Outpost today.

I've managed to do a bit of catching up in Craftyblogland, but time is short at the moment.  I'm in mad crafting mode as I'm heading off soon for another stint working in my mother's dollshouse museum, Small Worlds, in the Czech Republic.  If you'd like to see the sort of thing I'll be up to, have a look here.

I'll be away for six weeks, so my aim is to get some projects made ahead of time so that I don't have to ship the entire crafty stash over there with me.  Given there are some more dollshouses also making the journey, there simply wouldn't be room.  Actually there wouldn't be room for the entire stash even without the dollshouses!

So I'm trying to get round to repay your generous visits when I can, and once I'm over there, normal service should be resumed!!  Have a great week, all.

And will you succeed?  Yes indeed, yes indeed!
Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!

It's a very nice and soft artwork. I jumped to the links you made and discovered the beautiful dollhouse world you also are part of. And then I have a look at my own dollhouse which is waiting for me to finish since the day I fell into scrapbooking! I know the huge amount of time it needs...Have a nice journey and a great stay there! Lys.
