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...

Many thanks!

Gratitude abounds today at Words and Pictures.  I'm profoundly grateful for all your amazing feedback on the recent winter journalling pages... it feels like a change of gear and a fresh path of discovery to follow, so it's fantastic to hear that they're going down well.

And I'm also here to say an official thank you for all the amazing cards I received over Christmas and the New Year.  It gave me such delight to open and admire each and every one of them.

The decorations have come down now, and these are all now carefully stored in my Crafty Gifts and Cards box, to be taken out and stroked at intervals!

I think that I got round to an individual email to each of you but, just in case, huge thanks go again to Anne, Astrid, Barbarayaya, Brenda, Chris, Chrissie, Coco, Dianne, Hettie (Sam), Jennie, Jenny, Julia, Julie, Lys, Nikki, Shilpa and Trace.

There's quite a good picture quiz in there - can you guess which came from who?!  No prizes - purely for pleasure I'm afraid!

I'm back very soon with the new Vintage Journey challenge, so I'll hope to see you then.

I can no other answer make but thanks,
And thanks, and ever thanks.
From The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare (yes, I know I've used it before, but it's so good!)

Beautiful cards but a very difficult quiz I think I would get three right and one of those is mine so only two really.

I hope 2015 is going well for you.
