Fire, rain, flood now deadly virus!

Hi folks,

Yes, we’ve had a rough start to the year but survived and it seems it’s not going to get easier.  I have made several attempts to sit down and continue with the posts over the fire, then the heavy rain and hail storms and floods, we were lucky this time we didn’t get floods like we did in 2010.  As always life seems to throw curve balls (not just golf ball sized hail stones)!

With the rain came a rebound strength of growth in our garden, the brown non-existant grass you can see in one of the photographs with the parrot grazing, turned into green grass that needed moving and trees that had died because of drought and/or the extreme heat needed help, we had our work for the next few weeks.  We still have much to do but for the moment things have settled down – at least in the garden.  Over the last few weeks I have been too tired to think let-alone write a meaningful blog post.

So that’s why I haven’t been here.  I did, however, manage to get some cards made and also made up some scrapbook albums, filled some pages, made up or rather filled a ‘junk journal’ with some travel momentos.  I also made up albums for a variety of reasons, one being a manilla folder album for larger travel booklets etc. these I will deal with in a separate post.

Then of course there is COVID-19 well, I won’t go into that, we’ve all heard so much it is almost ho-hum but stay healthy and safe out there.

So for now I will leave you with some photos of cards and albums made and parrots grazing on the dry brown grass.

Please feel free to make comments on my posts, that way I know someone has at least seen them.  Until next time.  Cheers and thank you for reading.

Made for a swap using string tie to close instead of Velcro dot.
Inside of the previous card, coloured with water colour pencils.
This was also made for a swap “faux star”(?).
Junk journal or altered book, filled with travel memories – places I went, stayed, or toured. Mostly pamphlets, tickets and information booklets.
This album I made up as 12″ x 12″ just using thick patterned paper for the cover and the pages, with items from the Country Women’s Association branch I belong to. More on other albums and altered books/junk journals I made up in a separate post later.
