Another finished diamond painting !

So, here it is! I’ve yet to frame him, but he is finished. I did him in about two weeks, and this was an absolute pleasure! I got him from Amazon.co.uk . I’m hoping to give this to my friend today 🙂

I have 3 more to do, a little snack size one, and a tiny square one (that may or may not be any good, we shall see! ) and one that I got from the same company as the wolf (of sparrows in a tree) and one that hasn’t arrived yet!

Have a great day! If you diamond paint and have a blog, do put your blog in the comments, thanks!

Framed wolf diamond painting

What’s a flower frog?

Flower Frog

So, I’ve wanted one of these since I saw This Video by Ali Brown.

These apparently were once used by florists, known as frogs, because they spent much of their time in water, however they’re now highly collectible and cone in a myriad of different shapes and sizes, along with different themes.

They’ve since been replaced by something called Oasis, that you wet and pop your flower arrangement in:

I wanted one for my Diamond Painting Pens. I am really irritated by them rolling off my desk, so now they won’t, plus I have an item I find aesthetically pleasing.

Mine came from a charity shop and cost £4:00.

With pens in.

So, do you have one of these? Do you collect them? Or use them?

Day 25 – The Wolf Diamond Painting is completed!

First of all I’d like to thank everyone for the encouragement! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing this, all 7200 diamonds of it! It took me about 30 hours in total, and I dropped approximately 30 beads in the process.

I don’t like the wolf’s nose, it’s not obvious enough so I’m actually going to replace the beads before I seal the picture, if I can 🙂

Here you go!

I hope you like him, and I hope my friend does too ! 🙂

Day 18 – music is healing

It’s been a weird day for personal reasons that I don’t really want to air in public.

However, I’ve wandered around singing a song that refuses to leave my head.

It is distracting me which is probably a good thing at this point.

So, I thought I would share 🙂

This is the song enjoy 🙂 try singing along, it’s actually quite difficult.

And just as an aside – here’s the wolf update :

I hope you’re all having a great day!

Day 17 – This and That :)

Today is the first day since 23rd March 2020 that I’ll have been apart from my husband for longer than 2 hours, as he is helping out (socially distanced and safe) at a venue.

I’m excited but strangely nervous. I’ve not been on my own for an extended period of time for over a year. I have jobs to do, and I’m weirdly excited to do them !

I’m also going to do more diamond painting. I’m quite a way through the wolf.

Ethereal wolf so far….

I have even managed to find an app to keep track of all the bead drills and kits so I’ll be adding all the colours to the inventory today:)

I’m hoping it will be warmer than recently, as my husband is working outside. If it is, I’ll be drinking tea in the garden 🙂

I’m also planning to watch Prince Phillip’s Funeral. I do feel sorry for the Queen, she’s been married to him for so long, it must be terrible for her.

I’m also hoping to read a bit more of Big Magic. I was going to buy the audiobook, but it was £27:00 and there’s no way I can afford that!

What are your plans today?

My husband Reg a few years ago in Corfu.
