- these were taken by my agent on his last visit to the US; it's always a lovely feeling to see the finished product finally out there in the shops....look out for them if you can! :) The stocking was sold to Papermagic, whilst the snowman was purchased by Hobby Lobby.
Finally, as I woke this morning and flung back the curtains it appeared that the snow was actually beginning to recede...in fact we even woke in the night to hear what seemed (and I hoped!) to be snow tumbling off the roof! It's been soooooooooo cold here in the UK, but now the mercury is set to rise over the coming days....and it could not be better timed as I'm off to a magical winter wedding at the weekend (at least the bride won't have to shiver quite as much now!) :D
Here are some snowy shots I took in the garden....
- I made sure the birds were kept fed; putting bread out for them on a few occasions...even a little robin decided to tuck in! :)
Boy, am I glad to have finished these two....I think the cold weather has slowed me up or something; they seemed to have taken for-ev-errrrrrr....pleased with how they turned out though; here's a little taster:
- as you can see - my snowman's a lot more polished since he last appeared on Wednesday! :)
AND.......the snow has finally stopped; BIG BIG YAY!! let's hope it stays that way...
Oh dear, oh dear.......it looks like we finally got caught out by the dreaded arctic grip that's taken hold of the UK at the moment; it snowed and snowed and snowed here in the Midlands yesterday, and now we're swamped :(
I do hope it stops for us all soon, but as I type and glance out of the window it's back again.....come back sun...pleeeease!!!! In fact, better still; let's have some rain to wash it all away! It's times like this that I'm really thankful to be working from home.....this little design is a current 'work in progress', but it somehow got graffiti'd on along the way :)
