Some finished things

This is a catch up post. Sometimes I’d rather spend my time crafting than writing and recently I’ve become hooked on Instagram (love_lucie) , finding it so quick to post and watch others’ daily updates.

However I still enjoy the slower pace of the blog, both the reading of blogs and the writing of posts. I remember when I started the blog, nearly 3 years ago, I was concerned to read that blogs were coming to a natural end and everyone was moving onto the faster paced media channels of Utube and Tumbler and Instagram.

I’m glad the blog is still around. The blog doesn’t suddenly start blaring out of my computer when I’m sat in my office with my door open. The blog doesn’t use up my phone battery or data when streaming video, the blog allows me to pick up, read, put down when interrupted, pick up again, recap. I like a still image and the written word.

Any, back to the finished things. Read the rest of this entry

And then there were four!

Meet the gang. Elliot Elephant, Henry Hippo, Leo Lion and Ronnie Rhino.

They are an amicable bunch and like nothing more than hanging about on the sofa before they go off to their new home.

Henry was another simple make. Those ears and nostrils just finish him off. Read the rest of this entry
