Earth was hard as iron....

Frozen pond

Beautiful skeletal trees in the frosty mist

Teazel bowed with the frost.

This a before shot with bountiful berries...

and now stripped bare in the depths of winter!

Pooch with dandruff? :)
I've not posted anything for a while, I've noticed a few people missing from the blogs, maybe it's just that time of year? It has been freezing here and now snow to boot, it makes me want to hibernate really. Sometimes when I'm working away in my little room I feel like that, I walk the dog on a morning and sometimes see other dog walkers, but then I don't see anyone for the rest of the day, while I work away in my room. I think I actually really like this solitude, it's much easier to concentrate when all is quiet in the house. I took some photos of one of my walks this week..see above, I still can't get the hang of positioning text and photos, I am thick!
I've been very busy with work, which is good, I'm doing some more books. They are different to the last book, 30 little designs in total, so I'm steadily working through them. I've had quite a few books offered, but had to turn them down as they were too short notice for me, I cannot fathom why this should be? However, I am also doing some front covers for a company to take to the Bologna book fair, somewhere I would like to go!! I have 5 projects on the go right now, my room is in chaos as usual!

My Mother's day cards will be in the shops now, as I saw some today in town. So this is my offering to show you, hope you like? See you again soon.

Hello there blog friends, just a quick hello to say Happy New Year! Before Christmas is packed away until next year, here are some snippets of Christmas from my part of the world. We have not had snow as yet, just lots of wet weather, up to my eyes in mud, walking the dog. Christmas always seems to be such a rush heading into it. I've worked most days, being freelance does that. But I have just taken it steady on the whole, which has been good.
I Hope you have all managed some Peaceful time, and had wishes come true. Now here's to an exciting New Year, which may hold a few changes?? My very good friend from Sark has moved now to Sydney,Australia, so big changes for them, I'm already enjoying seeing what life is like 'Down Under' and it looks pretty good and sunny!! Bye for now, see you again soon.
