.... and the rest

Stamp CJ

Last year I joined a UKS CJ group where each member circulated a stamp. The finished book then showed each members interpretation of that stamp. These are some of the lovely CJ pages that I received back last week.

My Middle Name
It's a tag with a difference

Here are the rules:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.

4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)

So here goes....

J - Just me. What you see is what you get - like it or not!
A - Artistic - yeah right! I like playing with paper, ink and paint - whether that's artisitic or not is your call.
Y - Young at heart, or should that be just a big kid!
N - Never satisfied. I always think I could do better and my best is never good enough.
E - Encouraging. I will ALWAYS encourage my daughter to try new things - if she doesn't like them then that's fine but she needs to try new things before she can make that decision. This is something that I was never allowed to do - in my childhood, if you tried something you were forced to stick at it, whether you like it or not!

Ok - I need to tag 5 people so....

Gallifrey, Polgara, Tree, Sally and Julie C. Have fun!

CJ time again

This time it's another 'Just One Stamp' CJ.

The stamp was from Zettiology and belongs to Efemera.

It doesn't show very well but the background is shimmery IRL. It was created using 4 shades of ink spritzers with Brilliance Rocket Red Ink around the edges.

Tonight we said a final goodbye to my cat Cleo. She has been a big part of my life for over 19 years.

Anyone that says cats have no personality had never met Cleo, she had plenty of it, and will be sadly missed.
