OLW, One Little Word, Scrapbooking

Another start to my OLW journey – Balance 2018

New year, new start, new word. That was my post on the first of January as I embarked on yet another year of Ali Edwards One Little Word Project. This year, two months in, my word has been on my mind more often than not. That, in my view, is progress. Perhaps third time (year)… Read More Another start to my OLW journey – Balance 2018

Creative Meditation- 52 Quilters February 2018

Late last year Chris, the brains behind 52 Quilters, called for monthly hosts to takeover the @52quilters feed. I was so excited to be chosen to host February.

December Daily Pasts   December Daily progress is not something I have been successful at in the past. In 2015 and 2016 I managed roughly two pages each before it slipped away.
