Has it really been that long...

When I check in here I am always amazed at the length of time that has passed since I last logged into my blog. Only seems like a minute ago. I noticed that i had uploaded photos of the beginning of my tile-well have a look at it now!

Last week I painted around the jewels using copper lustre and gold-I can't wait to see it!! Very nerve wracking...
I have been all consumed with the need to make cards so here are a few of my recent ones.

I feel like a kid again only my playthings are much better quality. Today's youth probably wouldn't understand the feeling I get when I have a new pencil but to own all these wonderful things -I feel so blessed.
I have just started using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers as well as Copic. And I guess I will be adding some Stampin' Up soon too. They are so good to use as they blend really well. I have also been using Mica colours and I do intend to paint the honeyeaters using them one day soon. as the shimmer they give should look wonderful. 
Well two of our granddaughters have taken to the skies and one at least intends staying in the UK permanently. That is a very big word but I am so thrilled she has had the desire to take this step. She is 24  and exceptionally clever and I look forward to hearing how she goes. 
Skype has made this so much easier than it would have been many years ago.
