Is it that time again already!!!!!  a bit later posting this morning as we didn't have to get up for school!

On my desk today are the results of yesterdays spot of Zentangling - sneak peak as this is a couple of letters ahead in the Alphabet.  It was letter G over at Tag Tuesday yesterday.  There are the finishing touches still to go so it is not an entire give away!

I also had another go at fairy drawing.  I am torn between colouring her with Distress Inks or my Pro Markers but I hope to finish her off today - I want to have another go at her face as something is not quite right - I think it may be her left eye, cheek area.

I was busy videoing last week and have some more to do today.  As you can see I keep the camera shot area all nice and clear and then everything else just piles up around me!! What a mess ;-)

I might have to tackle that mess a bit before I start again or there may be a video on You Tube featuring my project being swept away on an avalanche of crafting stuff!  I bet I could find a sound effect for it!

Last week I had a notice from You Tube to say I had infringed someones copyright.  It was a bit of a shock to a newbie and I had visions of law suits and massive claims flash before me!!!!  Thank goodness for the internet I say - a quick search and I could breath easily again!  I don't know why people spend their days looking for ways to scam folk......well .....of anything and everything really.  Just think what good they could actually do if they turned their minds to bettering the world.  I want to say a big thank you to anyone on the internet that shares their knowledge to help others.  I happened upon a forum that had an explanation and a solution to my dilema posted and as a result I was able to quickly sort it out.

Happy WOYWW to you and I hope you have a week full of time to craft.  If you want to look around other folks desks around the whole world then just follow this link to Julia's as she has all the links you will ever need and the welcome is always warm where ever you decide to hop!

Thank you for popping by X


  1. Amazing fairy drawing ... I had to zoom in because I couldn't believe it was all hand drawn. Just lovely.

  3. Beautiful drawing, makes me want to do some too x
    Happy WOYWW Heather # 72

  4. I love seeing the complete picture... the neat surface ánd the mess around that... great post Helen! Especially what you say about people shocking or bullying other people through the internet. I so agree with you!! Happy filming Marit #95

    Oh, and for a detail of my 'weekpage' as you asked on my blog - I always show the spreads/details of my 'Chronicles' art journal (that's what I call my week-journal) but it has to wait 'till Friday as today's post was getting too long already...

  5. I'm sorry to hear you were worried - some people have far too much time on their hands and invent issues for others methinks. Your drawing is lovely! Hope you're going to post the finished article :) Kim #69

  6. Your fairy drawing is terrific - as someone who can't draw for toffee, I think you've made a great job of it and look forward to seeing her coloured in, whatever medium you choose.

    On the subject to spammers, I couldn't have put it better myself. I really can't see how they benefit and why they would even want to - where's the fun in having comments dumped and deleted! And where's the fun in frightening folk like you ... hope you're well over it now and glad that you were able to get good advice.

    Have a happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #58

  7. I see what you mean about us both having an avalanche. I am glad to say mine is all put away again for now, but it'll probably pile up again tonight. Your fairy drawing is amazing. I'd have to colour her in copics as I love using them and not very taken with my distress markers, but i hope we get to see the finished piece whichever you use.
    Sorry you had trouble with your youtube videos, but at least it sounds as though you have it all sorted out now.

  8. Love your fairies and your entangling - sorry to hear about the scare re You Tube. I take it I am reading correctly that it was a scam? These folks must have such boring lives they have to try to get kicks from destroying the lives of others.

    Take care

    Hugs, Neet 11 xx

  9. Can't wait to see how your fairy turns out.

  10. your zentangle tag is lovely and that fairy drawing is really good I would love to see her coloured in
    Wishing you a really great WOYWW

  11. Great zentangle tag - love the colours. And what a fabulous drawing, look forward to seeing it finished. Happy WOYWW have a good week..Gill x #103

  12. Love your zentangles, as for your fairy she is beautiful and yes you are right it is the left eye, I think the pupil is not quite right. I would love to see her coloured in especially with promarkers. I will have to come back and check.

    Happy WOYWW

  13. Hi Helen,

    I'm impressed with your fairy drawing. I can't wait to see her when you have her all colored in!

    I freak out when I get a message from Pinterest saying they've had to remove one of my pins. Every time it's been something that I've pinned from someone else but still. I can imagine how your heart skipped a beat at getting the message. Glad you got it sorted out.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay #2

  14. I always admire those who can draw their own artwork. I used to enjoy drawing but let it lapse and it takes a lot to recover confidence. Have a great week working on that face. I wish I could do half as well. xx Maggie #42

  15. Those scammers are terrible! I love how you did the arms and legs of your fairy! Great drawing!

  16. I love all the tags on the wall ABOVE your work space. Sometimes I don't really know what to do with mine...this seems an excellent solution. Your fairy is very cool...what a fun decision to make. Hmmm. What can I use to color with! :) Hope you show us the finished product on Wednesday.
