Well, it’s been a very busy and wonderful year as well as being the most difficult and rewarding…it’s nearly at its close. Time for one final blog before we move into 2013…
I made quite a lot of things for people for Christmas presents this year, half of which I forgot to take pictures of, but here are a few bits and pieces I did remember to snap.
I then made the stamps into Christmas cards for Baby Polly and Oliver. The bodies of the robins were printed using half cut potatoes. I don’t think I’ve done a potato print since my age reached double figures!
I made Christmas tree decorations for Polly and Joe
I made a picture of Simon Armitage for Mrs Armitage using a sample paint pot of her feature walls, canvas and a map of Sheffield
I made my Panda Bear a fabric picture of one of her favourite Jeffrey Lewis songs/lyrics “Don’t be upset”
“Don’t be upset it’s only an octopus
Don’t bother it and I’m sure it won’t bother us.”
I made the background from my old summer dress, the octopus is made of felt and his embellishments are some sequins from the back of one of my skirts…I’m pretty sure no-one will notice that some are missing…
I also made Mrs Moz some design your own Morrissey shoes…
I’m very excited about this coming year, I feel it will have greatness in it. Thank you for all of your support and kind words throughout 2012…I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Looking forward to seeing you in 2013 xxx
