First of all I’d like to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May all your dreams come true 🙂 I’ve added a little festive snow to my blog.
With just a week to go all the hand made presents are finished and ready to be delivered. I hope my friends enjoy them, I had fun making them, so I hope that will show through.
Now I can relax a bit and stop panicing. I will be at work all this week and on Wednesday I am going to meet the other members of my team for the first time (I work in a remote location) and we will be having a Christmas lunch. That should be fun, I’ve spoken to a couple of them on the phone and they sounded nice.
The spread above is another from my 6×6 journal – textured gesso ground, torn pages from an old dictionary, vintage images of women, acrylic paint, stamping and hand drawn swirls and writing. Afterwards I thought it probably would have been better to have printed the words as, like many people, when I try to write by hand it hardly ever comes out as I expect and this was a style I’d not tried before. I wasn’t entirely happy with the results, but hey-ho that’s how things turn out sometimes and I do like the message. My life has been extraordinary so far, I’m grateful for that and hoping for more extraordinariness in the future, for me and for you too.
Oh, I just noticed the date 18 December 2011! Today is the 41st anniversary of my first date with my soul mate and life companion. Wow, now isn’t that extraordinary!
See you soon.
