Happy Christmas Hot & Not...


Doing a lino cutting course on Saturday, at the WYPW

it was a lot harder than I imagined, I'm so used to a pencil or paint brush so I found it quite difficult to maneuver a cutting tool around my design....I need to perfect my gouging technique! I wanted to do the above design, but decided to do something easier and more familiar...

I need loads more practice and I might try vinyl next instead of lino... it needed warming up on the radiator because it's sooooooo cold here!

Sky and Sonny being in the school nativity together, ooooo pass me the kleenex!...

...especially when a little star keeps blowing you kisses!! (ooooo he's got me round his little finger the little charmer!!)

My wonderful and talented friend Tanya making me these gorgeous cushions for our new front room, how lucky am I!
Thank you soooo much I ...


Going to see the wild things with some tickets Sonny won in a local library art competition!
It was a beautiful film, but a bit meloncoly in places.....Skyla was in floods of tears at the end! So maybe not a film to see for a big festive cheer up!! but beautiful to watch especially if you've grown up with the book.

finishing a little Alice in Wonderland inspired craft project with the help of IKEA!

no NOT's this week, it's Christmas!
see more hot n notters at Loobylu's fab blog.

So, that's me done!
I want to concentrate on family and Christmas So,

Wishing everyone a massive magical Christmas, with fab times and belly 'laffs', and a very healthy and happy 2010!
