The End Of An Era

Once upon a time I started blogging...

...I stated blogging to keep track of my writing...

...but then that blog descended in to more and more random things and so I created this blog for the creative things...

...but recently I've realised that I'm having difficulty posting on two blogs regularly.

While I feel that I'm blogging regularly... which I am kinda... I'm not really as the posts are spread over two blogs. So where one blog is getting a couple of posts a week, the other (this one) is getting 3 or 4 a month. Which if combined would end up being about 11 posts a month.

So that's what I've decided to do... I'm going to condense my blogs in to one again.

So this blog will be around for a little while yet, while I move some of my posts, and bits and pieces, over to my other blog.

But eventually this blog will disappear... it has been fun while it lasted. I say eventually as I can be kind of lazy when it comes to this sort of stuff so trawling through over 300 posts may take me longer than the average person.

In the meantime you can find me over at my other blog The Random Thoughts Of Chippy.

Creatively Speaking: Random Bits & Bobs


So the last two weeks have consisted of a random selection of creative activities.

  • In the UK it was Mother's day at the beginning of March so I made a card.
  •  I've been hole punching random scraps of paper for future use as I mentioned in a previous blog post.

  • I bought one of those pre-printed canvas ages ago with every intention to change the colours to suit the room it is going in. The butterfiles on it are orange so I'm painting over them in purple and turquoise. But anyway I finally got started on it...
  • I recently saw a video on YouTube regarding organising nail polish...


          ...so I decided to do something similar. However due to the fact that I have a very large nail polish collection I decided to double end the sticks so I was swamped in them! And then I bundled them together in to groups (tied together with a corresponding ribbon!) - so all the purple swatches are together, all the reds etc.
  •  And I've been buying craft supplies... that counts as being creative... right? 
Til next time...
