I was watching a documentary the other night on Joy Division and the lead up to the suicide of Ian Curtis. It was 1980 and I was in sixth form struggling with decisions about the future and thinking John Paul Sarttre was right all along, we were all playing a part in the life play called Waiting for Godot and teenage angst was trendy. A few years later retrospectively thinking about the death of someone who was musically so talented but also deeply unhappy, got me out of that way of thinking and made me determined to be an optimist. Still I walloed in Atmosphere and thought of my youth, and how I thought I knew it all. Now at 51 , of course I know I don't know it all but am glad to still be learning and still being an optimist.
I like the creative stuff, not destructive and cynical, hence the love of craft.
Did these two cards. One for Easter and one for a 60th birthday.

The first is a Lotv topper, Dovecraft doily,kaiser craft stamp, the Works wooden word and some Paperchase photo corners.
The second uses some free papers and toppers from Making Cards, an egg die form X cuts, ribbon,burlap and bakers twine. Walter is quite pleased with them both.
Anyone going to GNPE in Harrogate. Will see you there Godot willing!
