Following on from my previous sketchblog post, here’s the latest gem from autocorrect.  I was having a chat on Whatsapp with a friend about a week ago and this happened.

Me: He’s off on some lads holiday to Ibiza or venison or similar

Friend: I hear venison is lovely at this time of year

Me: ss 03-04-2016_01

So here we have Autocorrect #3 (available in my Etsy shop if anyone wants it!)

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.
