And so it has to end....

So sorry for the delayed post but it seems my moly was stopped by customs and opened. I finally recieved it on Friday when i missed the signed for delivery and my dad had to go and collect it from the post office for me before i finished work. I had been having an awful day, i felt really ill and just wanted to cry so when i returned home to find this lovely little envelope on the work top my heart skipped a beat! my Moly at last after nearly a year travelling....

who wouldhave thought such a little black book could have travelled so far and could contain such prettiness...

It really is a feast for the eyes, you ladies have made me so happy i nearly cried when i was flicking through all the gorgeous beautiful images that are now all mine i cant quiet believe it!

First we had my paintings which i showed you before, then we have Kims wonderfully romantic drawings of her idyllic paddock and cozy house...

Her warm fire and sweet little cats. I want to live in your home too Kim!

Then i turned to Pats spread and nearly cried again! This little teddy i made for her from my Favourite Jeans. We did a Christmas swap together and the teddy was the main part, i made a matching one which was a boy and i have him at home on my windowsill. To see her there looking at such a pretty view made me so happy to be friends with such a wonderful group of people!

This was the end of Pats garden merging into Anna's beach in Spain and what a breathtaking beach it is. Sun sand and sea what more could a girl ask for??!

Well maybe a beautiful castle to stare at? Oh how pretty is this beach? Thanks Anna

Then i stumbled upon Dolors magical house. Her scrummy drawings of her kitchen and little handwritten recipe to make those mouthwatering muffins you can see on the right (i am definately going to give those a try!)

 Then i found her lovely smiley tree in the garden, it was such a pretty picture it really made me happy.
All of your artwork is amazing girlies thankyou so much for giving me such a valuable and beautiful journal.......and look here what i found in my back pocket of the moly...

Lots of little treasures.
I cannot thank you all enough and i am so sad this is finally at an end i have really enjoyed every second of our adventure together. I am hoping that maybe we can get together again and do another one or something similar? what do you think? i hope you agree as i would hate to loose contact with you are all special.
Big Big hugs from Kent

Gemma's moley is flying home!

Gemma's book is travelling to England! I sent it yesterday, I felt sad because this means that the project is arriving to its end. I have enjoyed every drawing I did and every one that I have seen in the pictures. Looking at your paintings I understand how you live, how you feel at home, and a lot of things that makes me feel between friends. Thank you very much to all of you, it has been an unforgetable experience.

I post a little of my drawing in the moley, it is the first part. To see more you will have to wait a little. Big hugs girls!

At last!

Here at last are all the lovely pictures in my moley. I'm so happy with it and I've had a lovely time sitting here and losing myself in the beautiful worlds that you've all created for me.

Firstly, my montage of fairy scenes.

Pat's wonderfully exciting and beautiful landscape. I would so love to visit here and lose myself in a story :)

Anna's delicate flowers, I can almost smell their perfume.

Dolors haunting pictures, intrigue and beauty in a fairytale.

Finally, Gemmas exotic mermaid. The colours are sumptious and my photo does them no justice.

Finally, a brief glimpse of Pat's finished moley. It's been finished for two weeks now, but I'm still not entirely happy with it. I can't keep it though, as I'm sure you're desperate for it Pat!

Thank you everyone for sharing this wonderful experience with me. I've totally enjoyed it, despite being pushed entirely outside my comfort zone. Hugs to you all.x

And this is my complete beautiful Meandering Moleskine

I wanted to put a text under each entry but I am so bad with computers that I don't know how to do it. So These are the wonderful, fantastic, great... I have no enough words in my vocabulary to describe them! Gemma, Kim, Pat, Anna, thank you to all you. I'm so happy with my book that I will treasure for ever.

Now I have to do the painting in Gemma's book, I'll post it when I send it. Big hugs.


Sorry, I'm late

Please forgive me. I'm very busy at work and I couldn't take a decent picture of Gemma's book and mine.

So, this is the great painting Anna did in Gemma's moleskine, she posted before but I have taken this photo also:

Dear Pat, Kim, Gemma and Dolors,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Finally my moly is at home and I am so glad I took part in this adventure. It is such a pleasure to look at your beautiful paintings although it makes me sad to think that it is all over. It was a privilege to share this wonderful project with such creative and talented artists like you. Big hugs to all of you! Love your paintings!!
