I'm really feeling....

..... homesick today. Well thats a daft saying 'cause where I am now is my home, what I should say is I'm really missing my kids and grandkids. I miss them every day since moving away from them, but I think because I had a lovely visit yesterday from my ex-hubbys mum and my niece and her son, it has stirred up a lot of emotions. I will need to go and visit them all soon, but then when I come home I will miss them all again. It's a never ending circle which I hope will get easier over time.
My creating has dwindled over the weeks, as I am always busy doing something or other. We had a few really nice days so they were spent taking the dogs for long walks and I really needed the exercise lol. It will be strange this year not having a litter of pups, but Fearne is now retired and I also needed a break from the dog breeding. I need to try and decide what exactly I am going to do now I've moved in with Frankie and live in the beautiful countryside. I have a few ideas going around in my head, but nothing yet that has grabbed my full attention. I do have one project that I have started work on, that does involve being creative with a range of mixed media and including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, but that is all I want to reveal at the moment. I will see how it goes and if I'm happy with it then all will be revealed in due course.

I have managed to throw together a quick page for my art journal, the prompt was 'Stories of Women'.

I used collage for this, something that I don't do very often, as I was doing this it reminded me of Justine who was in my class at college. I used to love her collages, she was so fast, just tearing and cutting images out of old magazines and sticking them down. She was so messy and clumsy yet her finished work always looked great. We used to have such laughs everyday, but our work was always done and handed in on time.....model students lol
well thats all for now till I find time to blog again and hopefully have managed to be a little more creative :-)

Hi,

I have emailed you but I'm not sure whether the email address was correct or not! Given that your litter last year was sired by Irnbru Ed, I wanted to invite you and any puppy owners who are interested to join the new facebook group for his puppies:

He has sired quite a few puppies now, so it would be nice to see how they are all doing!
