Walter Elias Disney

On the 5th December 1901, my hero Walter Elias Disney was born. with his vision and creativity and with one mouse, he created what has to be the happiest place on Earth.  I have had the priviledge of going to Walt Disney World in Florida twice and it truly is magical.  My whole life I have loved Disney.  I have great memories of my brother and I singing and dancing along to our Disney albums and reading from our Story a Day books when we was little.  I went on my honeymoon to Disney World and I just love everything Disney.  Walt was wise beyond his years and was in my opinion just wonderful.  What would have been his 115th Birthday, Happy Birthday Walt.

I cant believe it is May already.  Where has the year gone?  The Spring has started to show itself, though the last few days in the UK have been quite chilly. Don't you just love blossom trees!!!

Things are changing in Pickle Land.  Things have been difficult for me over the last six months or so, but I'm feeling stronger and I am started to get motivated to start projects again and to get myself organised and do them.

Projects that are heavily on my mind are as follows:

1)  Completing my Project Life from 2014
2)  Starting my Project Life for 2015 and 2016
3)  Disney Albums
4)  Wedding Albums - both my own and my brothers
5)  Art Journaling

Look out over the coming weeks and months for updates.  I am hoping that I will be able to schedule in lots of posts soon.

Looking forward to catching up with you all soon

Good evening from Pickle Land

Hello 2016, Stampin Up, time with family and Journaling Forum

Hello

I've been MIA for so long but inspired by my attendance at a Journaling Forum hosted by the fabulous Jamie Ridler of Jamie Ridler Studios I'm back.  More on this later

Happy 2016.  It has been so long since I've blogged.  Life hasn't exactly been great but I'm feeling stronger and I feel I'm getting my spark and mojo back.  I've still a few issues to sort that will help me on my recovery but I'm taking life as it comes and trying to be positive.

well what has happened since I last blogged. 

Firstly I have become a Stampin Up Demonstrator.  I have been looking at becoming one for a couple of years but finally I have taken the plunge.  I am enjoying it so far, I absolutely love the products and I have a great upline in Louise.  Its still very early days and I'm using it more as a hobbyist but I've my first hostess party in a couple of weeks which I am looking forward to.

You can find me at thestampinguesthouse.stampinup.net if you are inte…
