Can't t remember... did I show you these?

That's my month of February in pictures. 

And my petals recording what I crafted in March.

April Bujo pages

I think I forgot to show you these, so here are some other April Bujo pages before I move through the rest of May and into June!

In fact I think I might have a couple of  March and Feb pages left over.

May Bujo design

I don't know why but, colour-wise, May just is lilac to me!

This is my calendar before I wrote anything on it

And similarly, my to-do lists, which are now full to overflowing with stuff remaining or done.

Life has taken over recently, I have not given my bullet journal the attention it deserves and, as a result, have lived the the kind of turmoil that comes from not keeping track of what is coming up next. I have forgotten several things so will now attempt to get back on track!

Drawings from the Big White Book: Russian Dolls

For these, I made a cardboard cut out in three different sizes, started with the front row and drew backwards from there, so they look like they are standing behind each other in a crowd.

Then came the fun part of just filling the patterns in.

And yes I know that they wouldn't all fit inside each other like traditional Russian dolls, but think of it more like a convention of dolls from various different sets having a get-together : )

Drawings from the Big White Book: Reflections in the water

Here's another pen and ink drawing- sunset in the woodland.

I think it would do my head in to actually colour this!

Drawings from the Big White Book: Phoenix

Back to the patterns but this time within a bird shape- possibly a phoenix but I'm open to other names - firebird?

I have worn all my black drawing pens to a dried out frazzle and set out today to find replacements. The only way to get one sort was in a variety pack of three, where I only use one thickness so that would have been a waste of money.

I bought a set in a supermarket that looked great and flowed like a dream but, although the illustration on the packet showed a black line coming out... they were in fact BLUE!!! Horror of horrors!

The search continues...

Wisley Craft Fair 2018

Having joined the RHS at Wisley, we thought it best to go along to the first event that grabbed our attention- both for the Craft Fair and to see how the gardens had changed in the 4 weeks since we joined... Spring moves fast!

Here is a photo tour of some of the crafty highlights for us...

If you're in the area at the moment and fancy a day out... its still on till Monday!

Drawings from the Big White Book:: Hedgehogs in Hats

The internet is surprisingly full of pictures of hedgehogs in hats, real or photo-shopped on, so I used them to fill a page of drawings of them.

Its like typing in 'bucket of sloths' - sometimes you just get a whole load of cute!

Drawings from the Big White Book: Strange Egg-shaped creatures

I REALLY enjoyed drawing these and rather wished I could actually make them in 3D in fabric or something

They are rather reminiscent of Weebles and a bit Babapapa.

I re-used the 3 different sized egg templates I had made from a cereal packet to draw the pattered eggs I posted near Easter (see below)

I wonder what other characters I could think of, I rather fancy having another go...
