Sorry I've been so quiet

I've just not had the energy or been in the mood lately, which makes me feel even more down. I've missed doing my crafts and hope to be feeling better soon so I can get back to it.

I hope you are all well and doing lots of crafts.

Trip to A&E

So you all know, the reason why i haven't been doing any crafting lately is because I had an accident involving my dad's attic ladder breaking on me while I was right at the top about to switch the light on.

For the past couple of weeks my left arm has been in constant pain so I went to A&E last night to get it checked out. Luckily nothing is broken but I did get told off for not taking regular pain killers or for letting it rest. How they expect me to rest my arm with no sling or anything is beyond me.

This morning I did try to let it rest but I still kept using my arm to lift and carry things. After a walk to the chemist (did try Asda last night) I still could not find a sling, so I have raided the first aid kit at work. I am now sat here feeling a bit of a plonker, trying to type quickly with one hand.

As soon as I am all healed I will get on with my crafts. I did try some knitting the other day but the pain was unbearable. Good news is i have nearly finished my first knitted scarf!!

Bye for now

Lil Miss Tree's Website

I have decided to set up a website to use as a gallery of all my art work and crafts. I will post on my blog still but wanted a place online where I could keep all my files together so that it is easier for people to go through.

It is really empty at the moment as I have only just set it up and I am still in the process of uploading my artwork. If you would like to visit please go to

Many thanks

101 things in 1001 days

I came across THIS thread today and it has inspired me to start my own list. Although I wont be doing it in 1001 days, as some things I wont have full control over, I still thought it would be a great idea to make a list.

My thinking is, it will help me focus on the things I want to do and hopefully give me that little push to get on and do them. Some I can do in the near future some will be in the distant future, but they are all things I have always wanted to do or places I want to go see.

I thought I would share it with you as I know there are a lot of people doing this and I hope many more of you do as well. I also thought it was very fitting for my blog title as they are all mini adventures that will hopefully take me and lead me on to many more.

So here is my list in no particular order:

  1. Do a ceramic Course
  2. Learn a new language
  3. Sell some of my artwork
  4. Set up a website
  5. Buy my own house
  6. Get down to 91/2 stone
  7. Build up my confidence
  8. Get photos organised and into frames
  9. Go to Matlock Bath
  10. Do a photography course
  11. Learn how to cook a curry from scratch
  12. Get back into painting/chalk drawing
  13. Design another tattoo
  14. Get another tattoo
  15. Have a dog
  16. Learn to dance
  17. Learn to sew
  18. Learn more about knitting
  19. Save £1000 by 07.01.2010
  20. De-clutter the flat
  21. Set up my fish tank & buy some fish
  22. Take my nephew on a day trip once a month
  23. Start eating breakfast
  24. Only have a takeaway once a month
  25. Visit New York
  26. Visit Italy
  27. Learn to play the drums
  28. Ride a motorbike
  29. Visit as many Art Galleries as possible
  30. Set up my own business
  31. Learn to belly dance
  32. Do more for charity
  33. Go to A&E to get my arm checked out (done)

I will keep updating the list as I think of more things and would love to know if anyone else joins in.
