Challenge 191

Welcome to our challenge, firstly the team and myself would like to say thank you for all your gorgeous inspiration in challenge 190, and also your lovely comments, we do so love hearing from you.

 I would like to say an enormous thank you to all of you who have left "Lockdown" comments, it is good to see that we are all sharing these troubled times with good heart.

Another chance to win

So I am going to offer another prize of some unbranded stamps & dies, 
again open to everyone wherever you are in the world.

This time leave a comment about something that has inspired you during lockdown, for me there are 2 things that spring to mind, firstly and most importantly is




Captain Tom
What an amazing man, and a well deserved Knighthood 

The other thing I have been inspired by is
Grayson's Art Club


Grayson & Philippa Perry

Now I know his art is not to everyones tase, but oh boy has this guy and his lovely wife Pippa got talent. I was lucky enough to go to an exhibition of his work a couple of years ago, and he is in my humble opinion a true artist, he carves every stamp that he uses to impress into his pottery, he makes everything from the ground up as it were, unlike some other artists who just get someone to make the bronze tree branch or the neon sign and then say "this is my art"

That have both been leading the UK in an art therapy art club, and I am so impressed with the talent of the people who have taken up art during this terrible time, if you can get All 4 it is well worth your time

The winner of the prize (chosen by Random generator) is

As my husband and I are both considered to be in the upper age bracket, we are coping OK, still able to go to shops, doctors etc. But, what we are both missing is the interaction we have with strangers when out walking with our little dog. All we get nowadays is a nod.

Please email me alexcturner09@yahoo.co.uk, with your postal address and I will pop your prize in the post

So without further ado here is the Top 3 & Winners

The winner of the prize (chosen by Random generator) is 

Maxine - kiwimeskreations

Well, one positive is that this Grandma has learnt how to use Google Hangouts to chat with some of my Grandies!! My other greandies usually do a 'ride by' and chat over the front fence a couple of times a week. I am feeling so treasured by my family as they take care of me. I am basically in isolation, due to my age and asthma, and they have done all my shopping etc for me for over 4 weeks now. 
I also had a neighbours child give me a bunny shaped Easter card, and she wrote on the concrete at my front gate "I love you", with a rainbow. I was so touched.
Stay safe
Blessings
Maxine

Challenge 189

Welcome to our challenge, firstly the team and myself would like to say thank you for all your gorgeous inspiration in challenge 188, and also your lovely comments, we do so love hearing from you.

I hope this post finds you all safe and well, I know I am struggling now with not seeing my wonderful Son and his partner and my beautiful Daughter and scrumptious 8 Grand babies, tho none are truly babies. I miss the special people who made my days go by with a smile and a chat, the colleagues who I would normally be at work with, and the students who at times could drive me mad, but also make me laugh and smile.

That all said I am thankful for the wonderful Design Team and all of you lovely crafters for taking time to make this challenge a success.

I also should mention my long suffering Husband, who is my rock and is facing the challenge of teaching all of his departments lessons on line.

I would like to also mention, not just all the wonderful health workers around the globe, on the front line, but also the people working in the shops, allowing us to get our food supplies, the refuse collectors, postmen & women, teachers going in to take care of the students who's parents are still going to work, and those volunteers who go out into our communities helping others, and the many more wonderful people, who I have not mentioned, but are still there supporting our communities.


So wherever you are in this world, keep positive and keep safe, and keep crafting, after all, we are all in this together

Alex xx


Special physical prize.
