Happy Holidays!

Well another year is drawing to a close! Looking back to this time last year, I can honestly say I did not expect to be where I am now. After a redundancy, partner's job loss, family health scares etc, it's been a challenging year. However, I got through it all and have come out stronger and happier than I've been in a long time.

My love of art and creating art have been a constant throughout this time. I've gained so much from viewing the works of others on flickr, various blogs, Etsy and numerous websites. This has been an endless source of inspiration, and I am truly grateful for the many creative friends and contacts I have made over the last couple of years. I love sharing my work with them as much as I love seeing their work.

On that note, I thank all of you and wish you a very safe and festive holiday and a wonderful, creative New Year.


  1. Wow what a challenging year. Hopefully next year will be better one for everyone.

    I just wanted to say its been a real pleasure viewing your artwork and reading your blog this past year.

    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  2. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas :) T.
