2014 - An art filled year in review

Although I didn't blog last year, as you can see I was quite creative!  I'll try to be a better blogger this year :)

I'm still here...

48 weeks
I'm still getting back into the swing of blogging again, with travelling so much last year it was just easier to post pictures of Facebook.  I'm almost settled in my new home(apart from 2 boxes and one half built chest of drawers)and loving the fact that I have a dedicated craft room. With between Manchester and London, staying in hotels I needed something to do in the evenings that didn't involve in carrying loads of supplies with me, so I really became hooked on art journalling.  My travel kit would comprise of my journal(or 2), a waterbrush, gelatos, neocolor II crayons, stencils, pitt artist pens, a few bits of ephemera(stamped images, papers),  and babywipes .  Some of my pages can be seen below

2013 - A year in review(better late than never)

2013 - quite a year!

I know it's a bit late, almost at the end of 2nd month into 2014 and I'm just reviewing 2013 but it was really quite a year of change for me.

I had no idea what was in store for me but has really turned out to be a great change.  I made a decision to change job roles which unexpectedly meant a relocation from London to Manchester.  From May to November I was commuting back and forward, carrying out training for the new starters, trying to sell my flat in London and finding a new home in Manchester.

On November 12th I finally moved into my new house, I am so happy here and not just because I now have a dedicated craft room :) 
No more getting on the underground, the bus stop is about a minute from my front door and only takes about 15 minutes to get to work in the morning instead of 45mins to an hour.

On the subject of changes, I've decided to rename my blog as there's a few ink on my fingers out there - but I still have my inkyfingers email address :)

Normal service will be resumed with some crafty projects I've been making in my lovely new craft room.
