Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

That flower is way too pretty to be called a Pig Face, lol Flowers are just starting to peek out from the ground now and I am so looking forward to it too! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Hi Shaz. You beat me with a message about the Liebster thingy. Just went to see Sheree's blog. Got very engaged with her use of colour giving a lightness that is lovely. Also mentioned that I lived in Vancouver at one time, and visited the Island a lot.
Cheers,
Ros.

Thank you, Shaz for thinking of me for the Green Blend Award. I do like to think that we are as green as possible, recycling as much as possible, and I do blend all my crafts together (it could be said that I have a butterfly mind and cannot concentrate on anything for long.). sorry you are not around this week for the WOYWW, we shall miss you. Hope all is well for you and you are just enjoying the lovely sunshine and flowers and the sea and the beach (I want to go on holiday). xx Maggie

Well done on your award, I will pop over to your suggestions when I have a bit more time. Don't worry about returning comments, you are one busy lady! xx

Thanks Sharon.....just came back and read your post 'properly' !!
I think you encourage me more than I encourage you. Our weather is beautiful but not exactly summer yet....sun today but a cutting wind with it......now back to work!

Sam said...

Hi Shaz. Well done on your award and hope you are feeling better and a little less bogged down. Fab photos and would love to dip my toes in that water there!
I have popped over to tell you that YOU made me spend money last week! I was in our local art shop and came away with a Calligraphy book and three fibre tip practice pens! I blame YOU! I have had a little play but really need to sit down for a period of time. Difficult as I need to have some stuff ready for my impending craft show! I will probably post the book and pens on WOYWW this week, as I will try and have a little play tomorrow!
TTFN! Hugs
