It’s been almost two long years since I was last here..what a shock for you all that I am back at last.
Blogging seemed to be less popular and with a devastating family illness I lost all mojo to blog. The less said about 2020 the better..the global pandemic, the terrible loss of life and the ongoing family situation left little or no desire for me to record the long dark days, but 2021 sees me looking to the future, trying to be more optimistic and starting to get more involved in different crafting projects.
During lockdown here in the UK, I continued to practise my watercolour and acrylic painting and, of course, I continued to Scrapbook. So much so that I am fast running out of space to store all the albums I am creating. Christmas this year I gave away two albums but given the fact I’m a prolific scrapper, that was a tiny drop in the ocean.
I have also been card making and have started a little fledgling business selling my cards via a Facebook page Elaine’s Arts and Crafts and that seems to be working well for me.
Anyway, on to the real reason I’m back..I missed you guys! The inspiration I used to get from blog hopping was overtaken by the huge social giant of Facebook and my personal forays into the worlds of fellow crafter just isn’t the same there as it is visiting your blogs and seeing what you’ve all been up so. Sure, I get to see lots of creations but I don’t get to ‘know’ you all, whereas blogging is a way to get to know you, get personal inspiration and communicate in a more personal manner. I look forward to reconnecting with many of my old followers and, hopefully creating some new contacts too.
Anyway, without further ado, here are some of my favourite creations from the last couple of years..I so look forward to more visits again soon.
