365 Journal February

How on earth have 2 months of the year disappeared already? It's unbelievable. Anyway, another month has been filled up and it was much better than the last one as I found out I could get help with NHS costs. This was a huge relief.

So here's Feb's pages:



So, as I can afford to stay at my flat, it means that I could have the kitchen done. Now before anyone asks how can I afford it, let me tell you it's a gift from my parents instead of waiting for it to be done with any  inheritance and it will make a huge difference to my day to day life. I will have a dishwasher!!! And lower wall cupboards!!! And an eye level oven (or onion as I told Karen) and fridge!!! Little things that will make a massive change to me.

I'm staying at my parents while its done, which is great because I don't have to cook! There's not a great deal of crafting going on, but I did March's pages using all Stampotique stamps and a hefty amount of doodling.


I used watercolour crayons and white acrylic paint for the base, and the following stamps:

~{6017  Quasimoto 5}~
~{7230 Altered Alpha}~
~{9165 Carol's Flower Large}~
~{6006 Two Sticks}~

Fab pages! So glad Feb was a better month for you (although Grumpy Dog still got a cameo, I see). Your March pages are so lovely it almost seems a shame to cover them up with the little squares!

Omigosh what a relief about the flat and the NHS costs. And girlfriend, I did not once wonder how you could afford anything, I revel in the fact that you can get anything done that will help, no need to justify; and - thank God for our parents, eh!

Julia Dunnit said...
