Advent 2016 - three

Using an excellent tutorial from calligrapher Lindsey Bugbee of The Postmans Knock, I made some gift tags


I had completely forgotten the pleasure in losing myself for a couple of hours painting and hereby resolve that 2017 will be the year of more painting. You heard it here first folks!

  1. That is something I want to resolve to do as well. It's amazing how time disappears when you paint. Lovely gift tags. X

  3. Only yesterday I was thinking (out loud to my husband) that I have so much art material that I must resolve to start using it. He suggests regarding it like his music practice and I suppose he has a point -but who's going to do the boring but necessary things like cooking, shopping and sorting out the house I do while he practises twice a day! Then there's the wool stash and the fabric stash...I'm certainly not a slave to the household chores and I don't mind a bit of dust and muddle but I don't have his ability to put what he wants to do before what needs doing, which I suspect makes me my own worse enemy. I'm sure I got more done before we retired!

  7. They are so pretty and festive, yet on closer inspection a relatively simple design that is not too daunting for the rest of us to have a go at!

  12. You are bonkers! I've just logged on to all these posts from you to read and see you're going for the daily December thing again. I admire your stamina every year and just don't know how you do it with everything else going on. At the risk of repeating myself... are you sure you ever sleep Superwoman??
