Commissions and journal pages

Now my secret project is complete, I'm now back to working on a couple of commissions I received before Christmas. One is a very large fabric and paper journal with lots of embellishments. The other is a junk journal. I'm working on them both at the same time, this allows me to take a break from each one, that way I can see if more needs to be done when I go back.

more reflections.

Finally please spare a thought for our friends over the Tasman in Christchurch. They suffered a bad earthquake last year but that had nothing on the one they had yesterday. Out hearts and prayers go out to them. Mother nature is making her presence felt in a big way in both of our countries.

I also have a link to a great youtube video created by a lovely bunch of kids in Perth, if you click on the link and watch the video it raises money for the Queensland flood appeal, just wait until the ad at the beginning finishes, it's not long.

Lovely pages, want to see what you can't show us, you temptress!

Had a little fright re the NZ earthquake as my middlest is there but on the North island, trying to find picking work. I don't hold much for face book, but I went on & found him there on 'chat'so all good, quite impressed with it now! Poor people, what is happening with all this natural & otherwise unrest?

I am so concerned about the folks in Christchurch. Virginia sent down their top search and rescue team- they go all over the world at a moments notice- I hope that they can help. I did contribute to a fund set up by the red cross- thank you so much for publishing the links to this video!!!
