Christmas joy

This year I managed to make my own Christmas cards, an improvement on last year! Below is a peek at a few of them, there is nothing too fancy as I was determind to make them all and as always I put off making them until it was almost too late!

Take a look at two of the very precious gifts I received this Christmas from the talented Sandra Aston. First there is this glorious tiny plum pudding decoration. Next year this will take pride of place on our Christmas tree. There were many goodies in the parcel from Sandra, everything from scrapbook embellishments to a hand embellished tea towel and this delightful fairy, complete with her bag of treasure and a poem that reads...

A Fairy's Treasure....

A Star : to wish upon
A Flower and Butterfly : to remind you where I live
Some treasure: from times past
A Heart : to remind you someone loves you
A Tiny pair of wings : so you too can fly
Some Crystals : to bring you luck
Fairy Lights: to light up your life.

Thank you Sandra, its always a thrill to receive handmade gifts. You are such an inspiration, maybe next year I will make my own cards AND some promises though!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
