Missed last week's WOYWW and a bit late for this - it was almost 9:00 when I woke this morning and that is very late for me.
Well the festivities are over and it's back to normal at my house. Very busy couple of weeks and time now to take down the decoration (I never wait until twelfth night as there is nothing more depressing than an unlit Christmas tree and dusty cards. That's why my desk looks like this.
Craft stuff at the front including my new Caran D'Ache watercolours wax crayons (thanks Santa). I have already had a go with them making the background for my January journal pages (resolution to do one set a month during 2013).
Here they are in close-up. Background is various shades of blues and greens then I flicked colours from the crayon with a wet brush.
The Christmas stuff at the back (top picture) includes a Pergamano tree I made years ago (it has to come out each year as I spent weeks of my life on that one), a Christmas wreath (complete with robin) that hangs in the hall and various other bits and pieces from around the house. The tree will come down tomorrow when Mr B can get up in the loft for the boxes.
Sorry I missed the Christmas WOYWW but here are a couple of photos for you.
My Christmas table (complete with Mother-in-law).
Sorrel opens her presents (the hat stayed on for 2 minutes before she decided it was better as a toy).
Off to h ave a quick hop over to Julia's place (mistress of this whole blog-hopping mini-world) and then it's off to HobbyCraft for some new paintbrushes and some grayboard so that I can start the case for my new iPad.
Happy New Year everyone.
