Show and Tell Monday

Where is the year going, we are already past the half way point for Christmas, (another 144 days to go) must start thinking of the new Christmas line soon.

Had delivered this week a fantastic book, from Amazon, just for the creative personality:

The author has the knowledge of how the creative mind works, I am sure our brains do work differently as creativity is a way of life and a passion. I plan to start my visual journal and journey this week.

Another two applique cards:

Finally framed the cross stitch tea cup and saucer, used a pretty green rose fabric (that DH chose, he wanted you all to know this) for the mount and a pale wood frame.

Have joined Handmade UK, a group of like minded creative individuals promoting British Craft.

As my Facebook friends know, due to illness, I was unable to make the craft fair this weekend, very disappointed as I have been working hard towards this event. Have however, found a local Village Market once a month about 5 miles from me and sent off the email to ask if there are any vacancies. Have been looking for a regular reasonably priced event to act as a form of advertising etc.

Check out the other blogs on my list to see all the wonderful creations and tales for this week.

Have a happy week.


  1. Hi Caroline,, you will love this book, its awesome! I love your two cards, and I have to say your DH did a great job picking out fabric. Its beautiful! I hope your feeling much better, I know how migrains are. Have a great week, Happy creating,, hugs, gail

  2. Caroline

    I'm so sorry that you could not make the craft fair. I know how hard you have worked. Hope your feeling better.

    Love the new cards!

  3. Your tea cup x-stitch is very quaint. Hope you are feeling better.

  4. I think you're right, our creative minds do see things differently. I was thinking just that when I wrote on my Blog about the mark making from pieces of rubbish when planning a collograph.
    I'm just glad there are others like us out there.

  5. Caroline, I hope you begin to feeling better soon! Enjoy the new book and just put your feet up!

  6. Tell your husband he did a great job of picking out the fabric. It looks great! Sorry you haven't been feeling well. Take care!


  7. Looks great, Caroline. I do hope you are feeling much better. I totally understand about finding the right show for you.
