Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

Years ago when our children were young I made some big, red Christmas sacks and I’ve made it a bit of a tradition that they have their photographs taken on Christmas Eve, carrying the sacks up to bed.  Even though they are all grown up (and I had to wait for them to get back from the pub)  I made them pose again this year! Yesterday I spent the day looking back through hundreds of photographs, in albums and on our PC, being reminded of all the great times we’ve shared.

It also gave me the opportunity to look back at all the things I’ve made and I’ve put a collection of my favourite photographs together into a collage to share with you.  This has helped me end 2013 on a really positive note and I’m really looking forward to starting some new exciting projects in the coming months.  Happy New Year to you all.

It’s Christmas Eve and, like everyone else, I’ve been rushed off my feet with preparations for the holidays.  Both our children are home now and we’re really looking forward to spending time with them.  I’ve covered my sewing machine, put my tools away and cleared the table in readiness for the festivities!   These two owls were finished just in time!

Wishing a Merry Christmas to you all and I look forward to showing you more of my artwork in the new year.

Anyone that knows me, knows of my love of animals.  In particular I have always been cat-mad.  Many years ago when I had two ginger toms I realised that I would prefer for them to be happy at home when I went on holiday, so about 24 years ago I set up a Cat Sitting business, looking after other people’s cats whilst they were away. I have continued to care for friends and neighbours cats wherever we have lived.

Today I’m really excited to tell you about my new website  If you’re planning a holiday, weekend away or short trip and need someone to pop in and feed your pet, I’d be happy to help.
