Happy New Year Chums!

A Happy New Year to one and all, lets hope that 2011 shows 2010 what for!

Well the festive season is fast approaching the end, I am back to work tomorrow, bright eyed and bushy tailed......

I wanted to share a few things with you to start the blogging year off. I embarked on my twitter journey last year, a little apprehensively I have to admit but it really turned out to be a great platform for meeting creative and like minded people. The lovely Danielleyc of the creative Twitter massive had the brilliant idea of arranging a secret Santa for Christmas.

I was very lucky enough to recieve a beautiful handmade package from the very talented illustrating seamstress Alicia Rose. Wrapped up in a dressmaking pattern were the below Christmas pressies. An intricately sewn lavender bag (that I couldn't stop sniffing) and two lovely embroidered cards. I strongly recommend that you take a look at Alicia Rose's work, it's stunning. Thankyou very much Alicia!

The recipient of my handmade gift was the very talented illustrator,Kayleigh Bluck. I was very happy with the reaction to the print I sent, she gave me a lovely mention on her blog and I can not wait to see it framed. You can see the print below!

I am very happy with it and I'm itching to get creating in 2011, there are already a lot of exciting little projects and ideas on the horizon.

I will make sure I share them all on here but for now it's goodbye, till next time.
