Hi there and thanks for popping by :)  I really appreciate the lovely comments you leave and the time you take to check out my blog.

I have had a busy day today so far, I started with a Pilates class, the second of my three classes in a week!  I was still feeling the aches from my class on Monday but I am sure it's all worth it :)  

We then drove over to see my parents in Barnoldswick, it was an opportunity for them to see Amy before she leaves next Tuesday for her 4 month stay in Thailand. Then there has been the general washing and housework to catch up on :(

I have managed to finish my wall hanging that I started a couple of days ago.  I have used a Stampendous stamp, Minuet Bird and the sentiment that goes with it.  I stamped the image onto some kraft card and then coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  I used the Memory Box music die which I thought looked perfect with the music on the stamp and added some flowers and leaves to opposite corners.  The idea of a wall hanging came today, I was just going to make a card but I liked the idea of turning it into something to decorate my craft room  wall so I dug out the small amount of beading stash I have and added a chain to the top through some eyelets and I made a little charm using a Tim Holtz tassel and a couple of beads, a crystal and a bird charm.....Now to find the perfect place to hang it :)


  1. So beautiful Dawn - I was very tempted with this stamp too but have a similar Kaisercraft one - its a fabulous piece of art xx
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today and your offer of something for the craft stall is very much appreciated xx

  2. a lovely hanging Dawn - and it sounds like you have been going good with the pilates. Keep it up - definitely worth it xx

  3. Gorgeous hanging Dawn. Love the music die and the gorgeous bird. Like the charms hanging off the bottom too.
    Hope your Daughter enjoys her 4 months away, what a great adventure.
