Its been a task for me not to blog about my recent happenings. One i did not want to spoil my Christmas surprises and two ive barely had time to sit at a computer to type.

First off the mark was my friends Birthday Present. A blue rendition of the purple skull bow i made. Her favorite colour being bright blue and theme nerdy goth. To be honest the whole design was inspired by her, but i had intended to make a zombie pinup cameo but didnt work out. 
For my nieces i made framed illuminated text with they initials  Water colour and acrylic painting depicting theur birth flowers and stones. The Celtic knot was fun. 
The frame was a simple baby yellow wood paint, crackle medium, gold powder brushed into the cracks and a final gloss coat.
I also was a lucky gal this Christmas in what i got from Santa and Family. I asked and got some art supplies, asked and got a puzzle (shameful squeal when it turned out to be a Disney princess puzzle), sonic screwdriver from my beloved (again a squeal), nerdy nick-nacks and so on.

But the cream of the crop was the latest pattern book by Burda designers. Making Vintage Modern is a DIY how to on making fashions from the 1920's onward applicable to today's trends. To make it a little sweeter i also was given last years publication by Burda which provides basic patterns and how they can be modified. 

But the absolute cherry on the proverbial cake was the shiny new sewing machine. Santa thought i was a good girl this year ;)
