Not Tryng For Gnomic


...because although I'm most definitely short, showing you this deeply unflattering photo probably isn't too clever..


...but it is the best illustration I have of our trip. I got so excited my hair blew up. 

Berlin is fantastic! We feel like we only scratched the surface of everything there is to see. And the shops? I'm already trying to work out if there is any way I can go back to do my Christmas shopping. I have lots more pictures, many, many stories and some new things to add to my wardrobe; but for now, here, it's exam results day and we are celebrating. Our girl is off to university next month: School of Psychology, here she comes! 

So I'll share some projects which appeared on the Gossamer Blue blog wile I was away; and then I'll dash. It's good to be back, but I have a cake to organise...


I was inspired by some little Simple Stories journaling cards to square everything up this month


More details on the Gossamer Blue blog


See you Monday, if not before.

Oh, so wonderfully exciting for the NSSO! And you all, of course :). I am so delighted all her hard work came off - and she will, of course, make an amazing contribution to the world, whatever she does. Please give her my warmest congratulations. That's one exciting wall, I have to say ...
