Time Flys and Art Journals What a Mixture

Hello Everyone.
Well what a week its been here.
On the 3rd it was 19 years since Gordon and i first met and I cant believe how quick the time has gone and how far we have come. What a wonderful journey it has been so far.
Heres something to make you laugh.
This is how we looked all those years ago ( Oh how i would love that waist back :-)

This was 9 months after we met and Gordon took me to Florida and it was really magical.
We are somewhere in Disney Land in this pic.
The week before we went i decided to have all my hair cut off ( it was very blonde and way past my shoulders ) and i am so glad I did as it was scorching hot over there.

As you may remember last year on the 4th Gordon had his Aneurism and almost died.
We cant believe a year has gone by and how lucky he is to still be here.
He continues to grow stronger every day and doesnt get so tired any more but the girls at the shop and I still guard him and make sure he doesnt do too much.
By this time next year he should be back to 100 per cent himself thank goodness.

I dont make resolutions for New year as i never keep them and then get on a line with myself, but i have decided to get my other blog up and running again even if i only post 4 times a month or so.
The first things i am going to put on is the Art Journal swap that myself and 6 others did for our college course last year.
We all had to choose two colours and then use these on the persons pages of their book.
This is one of the pages i did in Cherices book.
Her chosen colours were Purple and Teal.
I chose Fairy garden and Mermaids for her book and this is one of the Fairy Garden pages ( the other one i will put on my other blog as it may be a little risque for this one )

I was really pleased how this turned out and used all kinds of media on it including acrylics, gel pens, friendly plastic, canvas, fabric and Spellbinders dies.
So thats all for now.
Oh i almost forgot ...... The builders should be finished at the House of Wishful Thinking tomorrow.
So now the Plasterers can come in and do the kitchen walls.
Malcolm the joiner has already started doing the walls in the bathroom, and the glazers are coming soon to re fit all the old windows that remain with double glazing.
So hopefully by the end of this month we will have a kitchen and bathroom all fitted and finished.
Cant wait to put the pics up for you all to see.
Will stop here as i need a coffee.
Thanks for dropping by.
Love and Smiles .
