Swooping for Salmon! (WPC: Evanescent)

Blink and you could possibly miss that moment when an eagle swoops down, talons reaching into the water to secure whatever it spotted within its claws. It’s a very hit and miss moment – for both the eagle and the photographer, lol!

Evanescent is the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for this week. The description for evanescent from the Daily Post is soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.






Personal Grooming is Important (Wordless Wednesday)

Preening is Important


Last day of the school year!

I seriously cannot believe today is the last day of the school year, honestly, where has the year disappeared?!

And me being me, although I have known for the entire school year that Miss Ten’s teacher was retiring at the end of the school year, did I begin her gift a few months ago? NO! I will say in my defense that I did begin contemplating it six months ago and DID know in my mind what I was doing so had instructions at the ready. If only I’d stuck to the plan… typical me!

When it came time last week to begin my creation I wasn’t happy with what I decided on. If I could find the instructions so easily on Pinterest then so could anyone and everyone else. Where’s the fun in that I ask?!

Hence I went back to what I know best and besides the cruddy lighting when I took the photos, I couldn’t be happier. What do you think? And that’s of the creation not the lighting thank you very much 🙂

Happy Retirement

Until I began work on this, I hadn’t realized how much I missed creating like this. As I’m a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I don’t get to use most of these embellishments anymore as they aren’t from that company so there’s little point on promoting them on my website (yes, I have another website… www.joannesinkeefiddlings.com )and quite honestly, I haven’t felt the need or the “inspiration” you might say to use them but I’m thinking that might all be about to change!

Thank You Mrs K

I even had the opportunity to use a machine I’d bought myself last year as a Christmas gift from my mother, finally! No longer will I have my family asking… “mum, how much longer?”
