Happy New Year!

New Year New Start!

This year I have decided not to make resolutions, they are too easy to break! Instead I have decided to nominate a word for this year that I will follow to make my life flow the way I want it to.

So my word for the 2011 is... BALANCE!

(I found this image on the internet, and couldn't resist using it, as it has an elephant as well as my word! It's actually the logo for a West African Wine Producer (see, which I made a little more my colours. Copyright to goes to

I hope that this year, 2011, I can find more balance between work, family and pleasure pursuits! Wish me luck as we enter the new year! And Happy New Year to you all!

Christmas is a-coming!

..and I don't even have a goose, let alone a fat one!

It's been a busy time here, trying to get everything ready for Christmas and I guess its the same everywhere! Buying presents, finishing up work committments, cleaning the house ready for guests, getting the food in (while coping with the snow!), writing cards (and finding the addresses!) and also dragging the boxes of decorations out of the loft and putting them up!

Whereas I *love* Christmas, this year doesn't feel as Christmassy as usual. Maybe that's because I am getting older... maybe that's because I am so behind with everything!

So there is just one week to go to *the big day* and its time to at least get the decorations up methinks!! So now I have to brave the loft and get all the boxes of decorations down!

December Inspiration!

Yes I know Christmas is less than a month away (how did that happen?!) and I have tons to do before the big day, but I have been surfing around looking for Inspiration for Art.

You know the kinda thing, an image that will kickstart a page or a piece... and I found this great image:-

I love the colours and there was just something about this image that resonated with I'm off the play for a while and see what comes up!

Have fun with whatever you are playing with today!
