I spoke too soon Sam, as I type the nasty white stuff is falling outside. Kiddo is thrilled, me, not so much. I am legendarily unco-ordinated when there is slippery snow & ice around and once dislocated my shoulder when I fell in school. I think I'll stay in & give in to kiddo's demands to do some arts and crafts. I'm also in the process of setting up a shop on folksy, so I've got a lot to do for that.
Phew, Christmas with a five year old is very exciting but very tiring too! Santa brought everything my son wanted and a few extra too, where to put it all now, though? Some highlights of the day were Kiddo exclaiming that it was the best Christmas ever when opening his stocking before he had even seen the rest of his pressies and him singing an alternative version of jingle bells that had the line Uncle Billy lost his willie and didn't know what to say, at the table in the middle of Christmas lunch with my all his grandparents in attendance. My mother-in-laws face was a real picture!
Now that things have calmed down, I have actually been beading hooray! It'll be nice to get some new pics up on the blog soon.
If you are curious about what I look like there is a picture of me with the lovely Sam on her blog http://themusingsofsamboy.blogspot.com/2009/12/party-pictures.html, I couldn't work out how to copy it here, bless me! Sam is about the only person I know in real life as well as blogland and she takes great photo's, check out her photography blog too!
I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.
