Love & Smiles Across The Miles

I hope you had a very happy Christmas day.  I did.  It was wonderful to spend time with my family, watch everyone open presents, and eat a fabulous roast turkey dinner lovingly prepared by my brother-in-law, Al, and sister, Charlotte.  Al knows how much I love my Christmas dinner and so always insists I have seconds. He's a top bloke...

Did you have a lovely time? I hope so.

I have a confession to make.

I'm a stationery fiend. I love all kinds of stationery and art supplies.

So when I opened my gifts this year and saw a box of Tombow dual brush art pens, a brand spanking new diary, and a book of Cath Kidston stickers, it was hard not to spontaneously combust. I'm very lucky.

Here are some lettering doodles I did yesterday on my Cath Kidston stickers in my new 2013 diary.  Words I want to remember in 2013.

It was a very happy time for me!

I've been very much counting my blessings this Christmas season and it has felt amazing to know how lucky I am to have family and friends who love me and who I love.  I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and cats to squeeze.  And a red fleecie onesie.  With feet included.  So I don't even need to wear slippers. Back of the net.

I'm very grateful.

Do you love starting your new diary?  Do you choose special words at the beginning of each year? Have you had lots of blessings this Christmas season?  I hope so. ♥

Wishing you glitter and sparkle this New Year, with a big pinch of magic for 2013. Sending love and smiles across the miles.

Happy Holidays!

It's December, so I finally feel comfortable showing you these two pages from my art journal. Everything I have by way of art materials has been thrown at them!  Sometimes "less is more" is a crock.

If I'd had access to a tub of fairy dust that would have been liberally sprinkled on there too.  I didn't.

Bobble hats, snowmen, bunting, and little fat robins are some of my favourite things...



Little fat birds, all plumped up feathers and tiny feet, make me smile...


And shiny red holly berries, and the blue tinge of snow, ironically, warm my heart...


I've seen in the tv listings that "Elf" with Will Ferrell is on tomorrow evening.  Men in tights who love decorating for Christmas.  What's not to love?

 I have my candy canes at the ready.
What do you love about Winter and Christmas?
I'm linking up with the fantabulous Lakota at FHC for her Ta-Dah Tuesday!
