tim'ified canvas

hello bloggers!! hope you recovered from the festive season ok, doing ok here, kiddos are all played out and we are enjoying our home time.

wanted to share this little canvas I made a few weeks ago as a gift for christmas, I havent been able to share it until now or otherwise the surprise would have been ruined!!!  its a little canvas that came over all timified and distressed!  while on my blog visits the other week I visited the lovely linda elbourne, lover of all things tim and she had done a post showing a canvas she too had tim'ed, t'was spooky we were working on something so so similar at the same time, so just wanted to say that it is purely a crafty world coincidence, dont want poor linda thinking I stole her beautiful idea, I would say great minds and all that but my mind aint that great (linda on the other hand YES!!!!!... genius!!) so thats the waffle & explanation out of the way!  hope you all have a wonderful new year, I am looking forward to it, 2010 is most definitely a year I want to leave behind :) hugs xx

edward & bella

he could no longer resist!!! he bit her!!! go edward!!  

I really should be doing christmas cards, but I just cant, I hate making them, I don't know why I don't like making christmas stuff so much!! I have avoided this for weeks and ended up having fun with vampires and gorjuss instead, much more fun!  but I suppose I should get to it, they will be very simple ones, all I plan on doing is cuttlebug folder'ing the front of them with a christmas tree, bit of glitter and a few gems and eh voile, thats about all I can creatively manage on the christmas card front!! hope your having fun in the snow!  hugs xx

my healing heart

here she is part one of an amazing online art course, this week, our first week was to create an art journal spread  and work on some inner healing:  "Healing Focus: Transforming the inner critic's messages"  and this is my self portrait and my positive message to myself

this was an amazing experience and I learned so much already I feel like a weight has been lifted, truly amazing, and thank you to tam for helping us achieve this, you are an angel.

if you would like to join in pop over to willowing and jump in, trust me you will be happy you did, and its not to late!!
