Gardens finished

I've finally finished all the hard work in my garden so now it's time to sit back and relax whilst the flowers bloom.
I've still bits and bobs I want to add but will do that gradually as it's mostly upcycled bits so just need to find the time :)

My garden is starting to come together

Just thought I'd post a quick update with a few pics from my garden as it is starting to come together and now I can't wait for the plants to start blooming :)

A while back whilst flicking through Pinterest I came across pretty pictures drawn with what's called Zentangle (basically drawings created from repetitive patterns) 
It's been a good few years since I've bothered with any drawing and I ain't no artist but doodling well I can do that so set about on my first zentangle✏️ or zendoodle as its sometimes called.
And here's the result of a good few weeks doodling :)

Gardening time

For the past couple of years I've got to admit I have really neglected my garden mainly due to the kids using it loads to play in it just wasn't worth doing a lot with it, but I decided this year I will get my butt in gear and get it done up so no more kids stuff like trampolines etc it's time for a grown ups garden ;)
Here's a few pics of it now before it gets the makeover which I will update on here as and when.

My latest beach finds

The weathers been lovely here this weekend so it's been great to get out strolling along the beach picking pretty beach treasure up along the way, I can't wait to collect enough pretty China and sea glass to make into some nice creations hopefully during the summer :)

Beach combing

I'm very lucky to live on a beautiful island with some gorgeous beaches to make the most of all year around, you can't beat the fresh sea air whilst having a gentle stroll along the beach collecting little beach treasures along the way that can be transformed eventually into something using crafting skills.

This is something I've not done for years but one of my resolutions for 2015 is to get out and about more for the fresh air and exercise and beach combing is a great excuse and quiet addictive.

I've found some lovely pieces of sea glass and broken pottery so far that will be used for some craft projects later in the year once I've collected enough.

Even my daughter is enjoying walks on the beach at the weekends and it gets her away from the iPad for a while!
