Merry Christmas and all that..

I have decided to lighten my load for a while over the festive period and give myself a little break. I've got a few illustration jobs to tie up, and then hopefully I can have a little bit of a holiday. After all, everyone else seems to be doing it! So, I probably wont be blogging here until the new year, and I just wanted to pop in here and wish all my blog readers a merry and safe Christmas.
I've got lots of crafty and arty plans for 2008 and I hope you'll be here to share them with me. I feel it's going to be a good year for creating.
So, see you soon in a fresh new year!

Welcome, Stella

A new baby girl has arrived in the world named Stella. She is my niece! I have only seen her for a little bit but cannot wait to visit her at home and play with her. It's such a happy time for my sister-in-law Chantelle and her other half Dave and the whole family. She'll make a great Mum.

I bought this little organic cotton hat and stitched a lil elephant blowing coloured bubbles onto it for her. And me being not too familiar with babies had no idea that she's not going to grow into this till she's about 50. Well, maybe not that long, but her little head is too small for it now. But that's ok, it's summer here. I was too scared to hold her (I thought I might break her.) I'm planning on using her to get over my fear of babies. Once that fear is over I'm sure I'll be holding all the babies offered to me for a cuddle!

Just a quick photograph addition to end this post. I was requested to show what the latest necklace looks like on. This was just a quick shot I took of myself. It's quite hard to take photos of yourself and show what you need to show. I tried taking a photo the other day of myself with one of my bags and necklaces and thought it turned out ok, only to see a skanky old dog bone lying next to me on the grass. I am such a rush-head that I sometimes forget the little details.

Anyway, this'll do for now. Rock on.
