A quick doggy watercolour


I am back with my phone now … thank goodness!

So I am pleased to share the quick watercolour I threw together yesterday to appear on an art journal page soon.  I used my doggy stamp I drew using my very lovely puppy for a model.  I coloured it in true Swissy colours but have drawn the stamp to be adaptable.


I hope you like it.




My puppy is growing into a big boy!


I’m sorry for the lack of crafting in this post but I had to share this photo of my youngest son with my puppy Chester.


I’m not sure who is measuring themselves against who but it tickled me when I caught them.  The bond between them is incredibly strong and I love to watch how pup interacts with him.  His constant sniffing over him (and particularly his head) to check he is ok is as a result of youngest son going head first over his handlebars some 18 months ago and requiring his head being glued back together, but pup still checks his head thoroughly given any opportunity.


It was Jan 2013 when OH went to Wales in the snow to fetch my little bundle of fun and after 2 years he still the same bundle of fun but much much bigger.  Weighing in now approx 70 kg and not yet fully grown, he is the biggest soft lapdog you could possibly imagine. I just wish he would stop standing on my toes with his big clumsy paws.

Thanks for visiting, please come back for some more crafty things.




Pastel Pencil Heaven

Hello on this rainy Sunday afternoon.

I am not gloomy however, due to the fantastic post that Mr Postman brought me yesterday…..A belated Christmas present from OH!


I adore pencils. I think they are beautiful and nothing makes me smile more than seeing freshly sharpened points on pencils ready for playing with.

So what do will I use them for?…..It can be only one thing. One of my beautiful doggies.

I love looking through photographs, however, I do not enjoy organising a pile of 500 into some sort of order.  However, I have found a selection of possibilities to try, just need to narrow down my choices.


Or these….


I always think this is the most time consuming part of any project….Actually deciding what to do!

Hoping I do get on with it pretty sharpish I will share my results.

See you again soon.
