30th June 2012 – “Mixed leaf”

Read Full Post »

I’ll start off with a list of those people who are taking part – please do visit their blogs and have a look at their entries for this month.  If they haven’t posted their photographs yet then please be patient and check again later!


I’ve been doing quite a lot of reading this month, specifically about sketching.  There’s something a bit voyeuristic about seeing pages from another person’s sketchbook, but it’s inspirational too.  My current read is An Illustrated Life by Danny Gregory (review to follow in due course).

Something I made

Bit of a late contender for this category, and I’ll be blogging about this item on Monday so check back then for more details!


One of the things I take enormous pleasure in, when the weather permits, is pottering around in my garden.  Not necessarily achieving anything in terms of weeding/pruning – more like giving things a good coat of looking at, with occasional breaks to sit and read, and a large cup of coffee to hand.


I was actually a bit stuck for this category, it’s a week too soon or I’d have loads of photos!  So I had a bit of an experiment with the different filters on the Vignette app and came up with this.  I like it, it makes me think of airport x-rays.

Motifs: Childhood

I sound like a stuck record but I do have real trouble throwing things away, which is why I still have (at the age of 31) my childhood bedding.  It hasn’t been used in twenty years, but I can’t bear to get rid of it and I’m sure some day I will turn it into something fabulous.

As usual I’ll be doing the rounds and will pick my favourites from the other blogger’s photos and will post them on here, but I’m going away for a few days so please check back towards the end of the week 🙂

What’s happening next month with the Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt?  Sally over at Diario is our host for July, so please pop along to her blog tomorrow and see what topics she’s chosen.

29th June 2012 – “Map in macro”

Read Full Post »

My life has been very fragrant of late, as the flowers in my garden are in full bloom.  Roses, pinks, jasmine, honeysuckle and sweetpea all vying for my attention.  At work this week I’ve had all of those as well as philadelphus (Mock Orange), so my sense of smell has been working overtime enjoying itself.

Sadly no one has yet invented a scratch-and-sniff computer screen, so you’ll just have to make do with photos of the flowers instead 😉

Now take a trip over and see what Katy and Jenna have put together for this week’s word.  Oh, and at the last minute we’ve been joined by Margot over at Tulsi Crafts and Sally at Sow & Sew too!

I’m tagging Katy over at Creating Misericordia to choose the next word, so pop along to her blog on Monday and see what she comes up with.
