Hi, I just wanted to add a video and some of the new promotional things I made using my hand crafted items, as larger signage was needed. I hope you’re all well!
Satan has no place in art’s
man made persona
on gracious passage of souls
golden heron fly
I’ve been away concentrating on my fundraising and have also put together a new video of crafts for this quarter. Since I was knee deep in files, I wanted to add certain things to my art/sketches category like these Zentangle projects. I have been practising for a year. This form helps with meditation and concentration, and has been a boon in all of that to help me focus and think only of the moment. There are no good or bad tangles, I have since learned. And, it is what it is. So, slowly, I am trying to apply that with regard to life, and *stuff*.
Black ink and pencil shading Zentangle box frame commissioned for Mother’s Day.
Instead of tangling on pads of paper, I wanted to find other mediums to use: e.g wooden plaques, varnished, bottles etc – making more of a lasting keepsake.
One of the donations I received was a box full of lovely smooth wood, (I made into bookmarks) unlike the plaque, which ripped my pen nibs to shreds, these were a treat to work. So calming. I even ventured into colour on some, which for me is rare.
Excuse my photography. It was very late, I was very tired and didn’t even spot the blurriness due to my own.
I’m starting another year fundraising for CRUK, and painting my socks off again for my first event on 23rd February. Sorry I haven’t been able to get around to your blogs and good works yet. I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s day, loving one another, and many others. Be kind and careful. Here are some of my hearts for you from last year’s painting spree. Take care.
Dedicating this old chestnut on Valentine’s day to my lovely husband, Jay. Love you.
Walk me to the end
of love – let us be love.
Fold me where the
seams are stitched,
edges brought closer
till there is no end.
Play me till the piano
aches, when drifting sighs
start dancing, and crooning
violins stop playing.
Lift me like a hope
seeking light from dust,
hold me with your beauty
like a soul on fire –
let me be the risk you take,
dance me to the edge
then wait with me until the end
of love, let us be love.
I’m using the run up to the holidays to ask friends for their support and ask if you would donate a small amount by using my donation button below (any country) or text BGON64 to 70070 (for those here in the UK) to give whatever you can (even the price of a solitary cuppa) to help Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Research. As a breast cancer survivor, I can sincerely say that your help is more than appreciated.
Cancer Research is not government funded and is responsible for a high percentage of the major breakthroughs we have seen to date. One of those drugs saved my life. Without you and me, those breakthroughs will not happen. Regardless of the amount or where you live in this world, your generosity will one day give the gift of life.
On the JustGiving page, you will find verification. It will also tell you all about my story, reasons and action plan I’ve used and for the foreseeable future. As you will read, I had a set back due to illness, but will be continuing and getting out there in 2019!
Thank you very much!
Hi. I am once again calling on friends here in the writing community at WordPress for your support in asking if you would either donate a small amount by using my donation button below (any country) or text BGON64 to 70070 (for those here in the UK) to give whatever you can (even the price of your next cuppa) to help Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Research. As a breast cancer survivor, I can sincerely say that your help is more than appreciated.

So don’t let this being UK based put you off donating. Regardless of your country, your generosity will one day give the gift of life to the world.
The Just Giving page is verification and will also tell you all about my own reasons and action plan for the foreseeable future.
Thank you very much!
Restrained to a mere particle,
a fleck in my eyes.
One blink, and you’re gone…
Doing the final preparations for my local Christmas Fair tomorrow. Into 2018 I will be sponsored for creating crafts for events and private orders. Looking forward to tomorrow! Here’s hoping we raise a lot of money. Thank you to all business and generous people who have donated so far.
Above is just a fraction of the things I have been working on for this fair, and moving forward, to raise money for Cancer sufferers everywhere. Please support me.
Please be generous, work your magic for cancer sufferers everywhere…
And I hope you all have a very happy holiday!
