Starting Over

I'm not giving up, I'm just starting over. #quote✭Pinterest Consultant Vancouver✭

My new blog is Storm Scraps and I will be posting sketches there every month, so please come and visit me and join me on my new journey. At some stage I will be collecting all my old sketches from this blog and compiling them into an e-book so we won't lose them :-)

love Heather x

(Oh and PS... that's totally my body there, hahahahahaha)

Scrappy Sketch 03-14

Well hello. Did you think I'd fallen off my perch? I kind of did in a sketchy kind of way. Sorry :-(

I'm back I think. Creative juices are flowing through my bones and fingers again, wakening up the stiff old mojo.

So we start the new season with a page for a boy. Hope you like it.

Mid Week Sketch 02-14

This year I am going to be doing a lot of different sketches, not just pages. Lots of pages, but not exclusively so. I will be doing different sized pages, and cards, and mini albums, and Project Life sketches too. Variety is the spice of life after all... And we all do a variety of things, so why not sketch that?

This week, I have some PL cards for those of us who do that fabulous form of memory keeping. For those who don't, these sketches could be translated to greeting cards with no problem. You just need some scrappy bits to make a nice little selection of cards to add to your collection - use whatever you have lurking about to create whatever will fit your favourite schemes.

I hope you find these useful in some way. And just for a special treat, I have also been busy making a few of them into a PDF file for you to print. Yes, a freebie! I know... what fun. But don't get too excited, I am no expert in these matters, and it's fairly simple. Who knows, I might get better at it with a bit of practise :-) 

Now what was that I was saying about not being an expert... having trouble even doing a PDF file for you, but now I find it wasn't my fault, the whole PDF thingamebob wasn't even on my laptop since my husband had to re-jigger it a couple of months ago. No wonder I couldn't do it, LOL! But now I can, because he's just re-installed it for me. I really am not technically minded... give me paper, paint or fabric though, and I can do good.

Click here to download the cards, then print and cut out and away you go!

Something For The Weekend

First of all, Happy New Year! The beginning of something good I hope, for all of us. New beginnings, chances to start over, do better, try again; new promises to ourselves, new hopes and dreams and aspirations; shrugging off the old and looking forward with fresh eyes. It always feels good to me - it's never just another week, it really does feel new, as if we can let go of what has passed and start again, fresh and clean.

Secondly, my apologies for disappearing at the end of last year. I just got behind and then couldn't make myself do it. Dreadful lack of discipline, I know... I am a flawed individual, for all my wishes to be otherwise. Something goes wrong and I scuttle for my blankie. (OK, I don't have a blankie -don't ask me where it went either, but I was 5 and I still remember it very clearly, nearly 5 decades later, LOL!) {I am not a drama queen, my memory just has very long pockets.} Anyway... I'm sorry I didn't come back and say I wasn't here. I meant to.

Let's start again. It's a new year. I wish you many happy days of scrapping this year, and no days of wishing you had a blankie. :-)

I have a fabby little sketch for you, a little something for the weekend perhaps. I hope to do it myself this weekend.

If you want to see what else I am up to, please check out my blog, StormScraps, which was even more neglected than this one, but which is also having a restart.

love Heather x ..always be a little kinder than necessary..
