Rocking Your World Friday - 12th of 2018

Good morning lovely people 'tis Friday time for 

First up is my atrocious art journal page - this is what happens, when you don't know what to do with the flowers you've cut out and you aren't engaging your brain.  However, given that I used my hot glue gun they are definitely there to stay! 

I've managed to do some scrapbooking recently which has been a really pleasant change, I hadn't realised just how much I had missed it! 

However, the downside of being behind on scrapping (by over 2 years) is that photos become a little difficult to identify the source, I knew we were in Scotland, I had a feeling we were in Edinburgh but locating the church which had this beautiful window was something else!

Next up my Hygge book, I've been thoroughly enjoying reading these delight reads over recent weeks, this one just as inspiring.

Another layout from our day at Jupiter Artland, which was epic! 

I could fill an album just from that day!

Then I'm grateful that my slight addiction to scrapping mean I keep the little things, the print out from the Auto-wed machine and the rings that came out of a box.  

The amethyst chamber is really stunning in Jupiter Artland and so very very different!

Fun documenting a day out we didn't go on, this one of three cousins on a day trip to the seaside

We had glorious weather when we went to Scotland, blue skies all the way!

I finally tracked down the church in question - St Giles and it was in Edinburgh - thank goodness for google is all I can say. 

Hubby at Lacock abbey - a completely different holiday - this time in Wiltshire!  The photo documents the display of outfits from the Hollow Crown, this particular one being worn by Benedict Cumberbatch when he played Richard III

Now the weekend approached with a promise of three 6 Nation matches on one day (although we already knew that Ireland had won), but I wasn't expecting the mini beast from the east, to be worse than the original beast from the east.  Here we documented the next door cat and her ventures out in the snow, it was fun to see where she actually walks!

Yep Spring in Yorkshire is proving elusive at the moment!

The nearby village over the hill looked pretty grey and wintery on our walk out - but we needed the air if I'm honest!

The bench we walk past didn't look too welcoming but I think it shows how crazy the weather was

So difficult weather and grateful moments, well hubby took to baking in kitchen this one being a very tasty light cinnamon cake!

More snow meant more scrapbooking, still going through 2016 holidays, this one of the Falkirk Wheel. 

And another from Jupiter Artland, I had forgotten how long my hair got before I had most of it cut off.

More artwork from Jupiter - the words don't ask come to mind!

And the Camera Obscura and Illusion place in Edinburgh

I found out some very old stencil books and managed to make a pretty different looking art journal piece

But by early in the week the snow had completely disappeared and I ventured out to check on my pots, thankfully the snow doesn't seem to have destroyed the plants.

I love the tiny daffodils that have come through

And I managed a wash load and got it out on the line

Other grateful moments, include my sister, my Mum and my niece keeping me sane this week - they are all awesome and it has been nice to put the world to rights. 

My Mum had us giggling when my niece was asking her to copy a link from one social media site to another, my Mum seemed to think the copy was stuck to her thumb and that she needed to get rid of it quickly - it made us giggle, she knows that's not how it worked but it still made us laugh - that an using the word hullabaloo a lot.

Hubby for being, epic and awesome and listening to me and just being himself.  It has been another tough week but with a fabulous family beside me I'm sure I can make some progress and get back on an even keel. 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and week ahead, if you fancy  joining in pop a post together, pop back, link up and we can come and visit. 


  1. glad you were able to catch up on some old holidays in your scrapping. I love the snow to look at but am glad it went quickly,. although they're talking about more for Easter!! I'd rather have chocolate!

  2. What a fabulous week of art and relived adventures :D XXX

  3. Wow. All that scrapbooking would take me a month of Sundays to complete!
    You sure had more than your fair share of snow. It is hanging around this year isn't it? We have storm Hugo forecast for this weekend, with high seas, gale force winds and persistent rain. (The snow is coming down to 800m which is very low for here). Isn't it amazing how resilient the plants are. those lovely primulas and baby daffs, all surviving the winter weather.
    I love the hygge book. I have a pair of Hyggebukser (spell checker didn't like that!), that are so comfortable on a chilly evening.
    You sound a little bit more upbeat this week, so I hope you are beginning to get back to normal. Take care this week. Kate x
