Theres no better excuse then a holiday to sit down with a yummy beverage and sketch away at what your seeing. So I took my sketchbook out with me to Spain, as an artist should, and sketched whenever I got the opportunity. Which mean whenever I put down my camera enough and stood stationary for longer then 5 mins for me to sketch!
So as you might know, I love to take photographs, and I proudly title myself armature photographer. And as you do with a past time; I've taken a few pics over the December period and I would like to share the best of.
Do I know its no longer Christmas? Yes, yes I do. Don't worry.
But as I do every year and as I have mentioned, I have just gotta show you my craftiness at Christmas time!
So this was an eventful December. Not only was I working through the holiday period for some of that extra dosh, I was crafting these beauties for my friends and family. (as well as continuing my personal projects, few!)
Not only was all of this going on, but my buddie ol' pal who is just in her last year of teaching in Kenya was coming home for Christmas. Now, her theme tune is driving home for Christmas, and it couldnt have been more appropriate!
So I will start with Aimees present first.
Designed after the image of my friend in a similar
style to one of my own mugs painted year in the year.
And another design painted after
a really cool cartoon, Adventure Time. Again if you havent seen
his one I would recommend it as it is funny and weird and wonderful all at the same time.
- All you have to do is cut off the flowers from any strong smelling lavender bush, pop them onto a tray an leave them to dry. NOTE: the earlier the bud the stronger the amount of oil in the flower.
- Once dry, rub off the flowers into a container, then with your desired amount of lavender mix in granulated sea salt. This holds in the smell.
- Mix then place into desired container or bag. Vola! Simple eh?
Yes, I attended a Lego convention!
Over the December period I attended a few functions for work, but I think going to see the Lego was one of the most fun. I met some really cool designers and fans of lego that had so much enthusiasm it was great to be apart of.
I was there on the first day and the convention with Game, the game shop helping to sell the new lego Batman game as well as other lego themed titles. I was cheeky and got there a wee bit earlier so I could walk around and see all of the cool stuff.
Here are a few of those swell things!
