Exploding Box

Hello lovely crafters,

Firstly an apology for no post about last weeks challenge, that is the third time I have totally lost a scheduled post (technically I'm typing this one and hoping it one goes live and doesn't vanish)

This week over at Fab'n'Funky challenges we are busting with excitement for our challenge which is

Exploding Boxes

We want to see what wonderful creations you can come up with.

Here is my take on this weeks challenge
It is multi-layered with pockets for inspiring notes and happy thoughts
As well as just good old-fashioned some loveliness

The most important thing about this challenge and all our challenges -  is to have fun.
Pop over to the Fab'n'Funky Blog and see the lovely creations the team have come up with.
Remeber to leave them some good vibes

Back soon

J-Con 2108

Hello from J-Con 2018 here in sunny Derby, UK.

This is the 11th annual convention and is growing in strength each year.
When it started 11 years ago virtually no one entered the cosplay competition (fancy dress of a character from anime/game/film), those of you how have followed my blog will know my youngest daughter joined the cosplay world dressed up as Miku,

but it is only the last 4 years that cosplay has become a major part of the event in Derby and very proud to say that this year the standards were amazing.
 My youngest in her (female) Jak costume (Jak and Daxter game), I spent the last 3 days frantically  creating this outfit and I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out.
She is standing the with what I can only describe as the most amazing cosplay costume I've seen yet. This gentleman spent 3 months creating this foam-based costume based on a Fall Out 4 character. More amazingly this was his first attempt at a foam-based costume.

But I will share you more tomorrow

Belgium Break

Hello from a very warm Belgium. I never thought I would pray for snow as much as I have over the last few days. BUT....what great beauty we have encountered.
Although Graham and I visited Ypres several years ago, we hadn't taken a hop around and boy did we miss out.
We started our Belgium adventure with an overnight sty at St.Pancras Renaissance Hotel (well a girl has to have a luxury treat now & then). I can highly recommend, utterly gorgeous.

The beautiful St.Pancras Station & Hotel.
It's hard to believe now that in the 1960's this had become redundant and was being considered for demolition.

It was only the dedicated campaigning of John Betjeman that saved this magnificent structure.

It was declared Grade 1 listed only a few days before demolition was due to begin.
That fact that it then took nearly 30 years for the revival to start.

If you would like to find out a more detailed explanation you can go HERE

It would have been a true crime if it had been replaced by a modern monstrosity, especially if you travel all the way to Antwerp.

Because when you get to Antwerp Station you are greeted by this
The very grand Antwerp Central Station. (and this is just a small part of it)
We went for a little exploration once we dropped our bag off.

All I can say for now is Antwerp is well worth a visit. We also visited the magnificent Antwerp Zoo and went to a Dweezil Zappa concert but I will save that for another day.
