@r_mjm #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Day#28 My Home-Town’s New PostCard designed by me... #28 Challenge. Visit my town. Im afraid my heart ISN'T where I live currently. But it IS where I've moved from and hope to move back to eventually. This town that has captured my heart is called Dunoon. And is situated in Argyll & Bute in Scotland. Its the gateway to the Trossachs and sits near the base of a peninsula. It's reachable by road through some of the most WONDERFUL scenery the United Kingdom has to offer. It is also accessed by ferry. There is the Western Ferry that runs every 15 mins in rush hour. Or the small passenger Argyll Ferry. Runs half hourly and connects to the main train line into Glasgow. It has EVERYTHING a family could need. From a large holiday village with chalets and caravans to rent. Down to a couple of swimming pools and a picture house. Dunoon has a large crafting community that welcomes anyone and everyone. A positive haven for everyone. Day 28 # TheJanuaryChallenge There's no place like home - here's my home city of Carlisle looking magical in the snow #27 Challenge. A gift for a stranger. Unfortunately Ive not been able to get out due to chronic pain. But the little gift i have left will hopefully fill a few little tummies. Day 28 of #TheJanuaryChallenge - No place like home. Yay, I made a lovely Llanwrtyd collagey postcardy thingy! I did it on time too :-) although I did cheat a little itty bitty bit; the individual photographs are not mine. I borrowed them from the www dot Catching up because I’ve been poorly! Day 24 - Creative Words - “We all have a favourite quote, okay, some of us may have more than one.. Pick your favourite quote (or one of your favourites) and make it into word art. It could be a quote from a book, a film, or maybe a quote passed down in your family.” This is a real truth, I never regret going out for a #Run #64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge.

Something #creative everyday Day 28 of #TheJanuaryChallenge - Create a postcard for your hometown. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists @64M_Artists This is where we live: Puerto Varas, Chile My post is to celebrate Coventry Youth Operetta Group, which has been going for over 40 years but there are still people in Coventry who haven't heard of them. The group comprises youngsters aged 8 to 25 and they put on two shows per year. If you enjoy musical theatre, are in the vicinity when they are performing then grab a ticket for a fantastic night out. Day 28 - #TheJanuaryChallenge - OK so we've kind of already done this one. If we were to create a postcard of #Coventry, it would look something like this... (A celebration of the vibrant visual arts). #64MillionArtists The village where I live looks lovely in the sunshine and the snow...unfortunately it’s doing neither of those things today...still feel lucky to have all this on my doorstep though :-) This is Bobbin! We had a great visit to @warwickshireopenstudios secret studio sale yesterday and saw and bought some lovely art. We also meet the brilliant @emmamonster and bought Tink a monster hoody which she loves. She wore it to a birthday party today and we're just trying to work out if there's a way she can wear it for their fairy tale fancy dress day at school. Bobbin was extremely lucky as Emma is taking part in #TheJanuaryChallenge and yesterday's prompt was to gift something to a stranger and Emma kindly choose her. Such a lovely thing to do and totally unexpected. @Regranned from @emmamonster - It’s #Day27 of #TheJanuaryChallenge #Gifted so I gifted a #monster to this little girl #64millionartists - #regrann Day 28: No place like home - Newcastle upon Tyne! A city with a strong heritage and a thriving culture. A place to love, live and laugh - often at ourselves. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Postcard of home: we've a log burner, a veggie patch, a splendid rooftop view, and just beyond the back garden, a castle with hectares of public parkland and 70,000 seater stadium ;-) #cardiffis @ILovesTheDiff @VisitCardiff @64M_Artists Took this photo a couple of years ago... My postcard about London ;) #MindTheGap Day 28 #thejanuarychallenge Some of the sites of my home town Well. I guess when you think about it, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world. It’s home is where you put down your roots and hope to make everyone who visits feel welcome. ❤️ Day 28: No place like Home I love where I live (sunny Carlisle) and I love my walk into town along the river Caldew. I love how every time I walk this route it's different depending on the light, weather, time of day/season and who or what is around. #64millionartists #TheJanuaryChallenge Postcard of where I live. Coventry Day 28. A postcard from Belper, Derbyshire. Belper is a small, market town of around 20000 people, 8 miles north of Derby. Belper has a football team called 'the Nailers, a name derived from Belper's past industry of nail manufacture when the area was part of the Royal Forest in Derbyshire. Belper's rapid growth was due to the building of water powered cotton mills by Jedediah Strutt The Mills stand in The Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Next to this is Belper River Gardens opened over 100 years ago and where Belper holds it's annual Well Dressings in mid July..Belper in Bloom was selected to represent the East Midlands in the Large Town Category in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom UK Finals 2017 and was awarded a gold medal! Plans for many more houses have been accepted, which will mean a growing population. But I feel sure Belper will remain the friendly welcoming place we know and love.

Day 28 - #TheJanuaryChallenge No place like home. Growing up in Kent, I love escaping the city and seeing vast fields and having a pint in a good old country pub #64MillionArtists @64millionartists Day 28 - #TheJanuaryChallenge No place like home. Growing up in Kent, I love escaping the city and seeing vast fields and having a pint in a good old country pub #64MillionArtists @64M_Artists did this time ago but perfect for challenge the view from mine❤ Day 28 #thejanuarychallenge! Castle Hill in sunny Huddersfield (not always sunny but beautiful when it is!) Laura @64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge #64MillionArtists Day 28 No Place Like Home Worcester is our adopted home But very sadly, it could have been so much better architecturally. Described in the national press (1967) as "the rape of Worcester" - our 1960's heritage is less than appealing! Day 28! Castle Hill in sunny Huddersfield (not always sunny but beautiful when it is!) Design a #postcard for your home town #art #artist #drawing #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists Day 28 It's not until you look images of your area up that you remember what is on your doorstep. Then it's how much you use and many places you mean to visit but never get around to. I live in East Hertfordshire in a 'village' called Turnford. Never thought of it as a village. We are right on Lee Valley Park part of which is home to the white water centre used during the Olympics. We have beautiful parks woods and gardens. Not too far from London, but close to 'green'. Original home of Tescos too. They seem to breed locally!! This is Galway Ireland. Lovely place to visit. Lovely Guinness too #Challengeday28 #64millionartists #TheJanuaryChallenge Sunsets at the Mouth of the Tyne...what more could you wish for? No place like home A place still dear to my heart Day 28 no place like home Chatsworth is Derbyshire’s jewel in the crown but Derby has its own precious gems - museums, cathedral, riverside walks as well as independent shops, restaurants and pubs. For thrill seekers, join a ghost walk - Derby after all has more ghosts than any other uk city! #day 27 Gifted, catching up. I'll be leaving this very small useful gift for someone, I hope they use it but who knows Day 28: No place like home. Who knew that all this natural beauty could exist in a lesser-known suburb just a couple of miles from the centre of one of the UK's biggest cities? #Meanwood #Leeds #64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge #Day28 Home is where the heart is. Since 1981 thousand of people have come to Tyneside to compete in the Great North Run Day 28 #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists - No Place like Home @64M_Artists #nicetown #nicearea #nicepeople @64M_Artists #thejanuarychallenge day28 Day 28 #TheJanuaryChallenge No Place Like Home. This is a postcard made up of images taken within a mile of my home. There are amazing things to see when you look at them closely - I find things to gasp at the whole year round - but I'm sure that's true of where you live too. Day 28. No place like home. The Puy de Dome department of France. Well, the photo tells you all you need to know - the landscapes are stunning, all year round. Skiiing in winter, cycling and walking in summer, open air lake swimming in cold glacial lakes or relaxing in natural hot water springs. Local wines, the best regional cheeses and a rich local history of gastronomy. Activities for all ages, all shapes and sizes and all tastes. Moving to a rural life here in the shadow of the dormant volcanic range of the Massif Central was the best move our family made over 10 years ago. #Day28 of #TheJanuaryChallenge is #NoPlaceLikeHome - create a postcard for where you live. The #socialmedia versus #reality view of life anywhere Home...My first post this January challenge, time for creative awakening...I live in the greenest city in the UK, half an hour on the bus and I’m in the city centre 28 #Day28 of #TheJanuaryChallenge is #NoPlaceLikeHome - create a postcard for where you live.
