No more snow!

Its stopped snowing in the UK! I can feel my toes! More cold weather heading our way next week! I created this little snowman a few weeks back now.... he has already found a home in the US, he will make a nice Christmas card!

I'm going to attempt to get festive this weekend and purchase my very first real "Christmas tree"

Bunny watch....

Remember the "Bunnies?" I bought these 2 adorable little rucksacks last year when I visited my sister in Korea. They were for my 2 favorite little people Harley and Darci.

Harley just loved his..... but its broken..... sad times!!
We tried to explain to Harley that it came from very far away, not sure he really understood being only 3! So my big sis has been bunny shopping and has sent a new one, I just cant wait to see his little face! HURRY up bunny!!!!
Its his birthday on the 7th, crossing fingers and toes!!

We all need a little "Yoga"

Look at this...... Stuart saw it in the paper and saved the pages for me...... I just love it!
"Yoga bear!"

The photographs of the female brown bear performing a 15-minute stretching routine were shot by a Slovenian tourist on a visit to the Ahtari zoo in Finland.

"She held her legs with her hands for a minute or two in a V position and then put them down and relaxed,"
It certainly cheered me up on this miserable wet Monday morning.

Sometimes my job seems a little odd! Christmas in August, although this August is more than a little wet! Where is the sunshine?

This is another set I've been working on...... vintage stockings!! I like it!!

Enjoy your weekend..... I'm out for dinner twice this weekend, no cooking for me!!! ;-)

How I do like to be by the sea!

I mentioned a couple of weeks back I was off to Brighton for a mini break...... it seems so long ago now, 3 days just wasn't long enough. I went with my big sis who was home from Korea for 3 weeks.... we had a lovely time! ;) It was a little bit windy though!!!!

A busy few weeks!

I've had my paint brushes out again..... painting just as fast as I can..... lots of watery traditional Christmas designs. They will be off to America today to be shown to some of our US card customers.... fingers crossed!

Ahoy Ye Matey its the "Weekend"

What a week!! Its been a busy one! (I've been looking for somewhere to live) I had a go at my very first pirate design! I think it will make a great card or giftbag. So between popping out to look at houses I've been creating these guys and working on some more traditional Christmas! I'm looking forward to a rest this weekend, starting with a nice Italian meal with the girls tonight!! :)

Happy Friday everyone!!
