Easter No 1

Today is the day! The day to start downloading the Delirious? song History Makers.
There is a web site with information on this campaign to have a Christian song at No 1 for Easter Sunday. The band have agreed that all the proceeds from the sales of this song are to be donated through Compassion Art to 16 charitable projects around the world.
You can download the song from:


There are two versions, one live and one studio, you can download one of each and both will count towards the one chart position. So go on, especially if you've never downloaded a song before - download this one! And if you want a sneek preview here is a uTube clip ...

The first Something from Nothing challenge from Shimelle was to use metal. I really liked the idea of making a frame using brads, so I found one or two brads! and made this LO. The photo was taken on our holiday to Legoland in October 2008. Funny I still seem to have a couple of brads left!!!

Spring must be in the air this week - I have been busy tidying and cleaning. The bathroom, especially the shower, got a really good clean on Monday and I finished off the kitchen today. I really wish I had nice smooth things without all the odd little fiddly bits that are soo difficult to clean.

Not actually done any studying this week though so had better get cracking.

Lots of stash!

The first challenge from Shimelle's class, Something from almost nothing, is to talk about and show photos of your stash - just to prove that I really don't have that much (honest!!) here are some of my photos.
Boxes contain ribbons, buttons, bits and bobs - but it looks tidy!

Cupboard has paints, alcohol inks, embossing powders and my Big Shot.

This neat bag has eyelets and brads.

My tote, which sits under my desk, has a few! kits, mainly unused!

Another tote bag contains other patterned paper, card is in a separate folder(s).

Stamps are in this great box.

OK a few more ribbons - but they are tidy!

I will admit to having a few more bits of stash lurking in drawers and under the bed, but on the whole the room is fairly tidy. The room I use doubles as a guest room, so really has to be kept reasonably tidy. I had a major tidy out last year and to be honest have difficulty finding stuff now. So hopefully this class will help me rediscover what I have - and then use it! Then I can go buy more...

My first socks!

I have finally finished knitting my first pair of socks! I started them during the summer holidays last year and finally finished them last week. The wool is a lovely soft sock wool from Fyberspates. My toes are now lovely and warm.

I have a confession to make - I have absolutely no willpower! Despite telling myself that I would not sign up to Shimelle's new class 'Something from almost nothing' I have went and gone and signed up for it. It really is the fault of friends blogs that started saying how good the first prompt was - I just had to go and sign up. Don't like missing out on something. At least I know I have plenty of stash for it and don't need to buy anything, expect perhaps........

There is a hope

This LO was done several weeks ago for a scraplift challenge over at FaithscrappersUK. The challenge is a bit like Chinese Whispers - one person chooses a LO does a scraplift then emails their LO to the next person on the list, who does a scraplift then passes it on. The theme had to be a hymn or song. I chose There is a Hope by Stuart Townend. The photo was taken when we were in Rome at the Coliseum.

The words of the song are

There is a hope that burns within my heart,
That gives me strength for every passing day;
A glimpse of glory now revealed in meagre part,
Yet drives all doubt away:
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven;
And Christ in me, the hope of heaven!
My highest calling and my deepest joy,
To make His will my home.

There is a hope that lifts my weary head,
A consolation strong against despair,
That when the world has plunged me in its deepest pit,
I find the Saviour there!
Through present sufferings, future's fear,
He whispers 'courage' in my ear.
For I am safe in everlasting arms,
And they will lead me home.

There is a hope that stands the test of time,
That lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
To see the matchless beauty of a day divine
When I behold His face!
When sufferings cease and sorrows die,
And every longing satisfied,
Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul,
For I am truly home.

All done!

Yes, the essay is finally done and sent off to my tutor. Now on to block 2, sweatshops!!

I also managed to fit in finishing some challenges from the recent cybercrop at Faithscrappers UK. The challenges were all about different things we pray for.
I have used 6x4 cards which I am now going to put onto a DLO.

The first card is Confession

Card 2 is Adoration

Card 3 is Intercession, praying for others.

Card 4 is waiting, meditating

Card 5 is thanksgiving

Card 6 is Consecration
