Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and will have a happy new year ! xx

Here are some pictures I took of Christmas in Covent Garden, London, with a twist on the traditional Christmas tree.. a projection onto the opposite building, nice but I preferred last year's tree.

I have bought lots of mixed media and altered art books in the last month or so and have become over inspired, by that I mean I have got too many ideas to put down onto paper or computer and it's become a sort of artist's block. But I did have a go at it today amongst trying to make the house look fairly christmassy and I must admit I failed there but I'm not really a big Christmas fan it's just another big reason to make lots of lovely things to me ( that's not bah humbug either)
Anyway here are three that I made, I have got more ideas that I will do tomorrow night but it's a bit late now so I thought that I would at least upload these... funny though I didn't think ATC's would be something I would get into..

A new start !

Even though it's mid December I thought I would start my own blog, (properly) I had a go at the beginning of the year but didn't really keep on top of it. Anyway after reading all my favourite blogs all year I have been enthused to do my very own and I will definately do regular updates especially if I get feedback from other arty types which will be a bit of motivation. To start off I have just had a couple of days off work and I decided to transform my room into more of an organised crafting space and open out the other side of my table to make it a long desk (can't believe it has only just occured to me after a year ! ) and despite the picture it has really made a difference to me, no more dropping things off the side or cramped work area and it has helped de-clutter my mind, well they do say a change is as good as a rest...

Everyone says it looks like a shop...

And here is a little bit of art too..

I have lots of pads and packets of things that I haven't even thought to use because they are so pretty I don't want to cut or use them up ! Crazy I know, considering how much I have spent on all of it.
