… you will never leave my heart behind. Like the path of a star, I’ll be anywhere you are.” ~ (lyrics borrowed from a song by Beth Nielsen Chapman).
It’s been quiet here on the blog for a few, short weeks and I’m here to explain. I had to say goodbye to my loved, beautiful dog and constant friend, Mabel. Some of you might remember me mentioning she’d been poorly and I’d been back and forth to the vet. Mabel was 14 and a half years old and I couldn’t bear to watch her suffer any longer. I had to make the hardest decision that a dog owner ever has to make, and said goodnight to her three and a half weeks ago.
I couldn’t type details before today as I couldn’t seem to find the right words. Nothing explained the pain of my loss, and still doesn’t now, but I realised I needed to share where I was and why I wasn’t blogging. My heartfelt thanks for the loving messages I’ve received asking where I am. You have lifted my heart knowing that you care.
Thank you for coming today. I promise my next blog post will be a happier, crafting for Christmas, post.

I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck!
This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium.
I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form.
One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'.
Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows.
I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course).
I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash.
Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!)
Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3
