art gallery page is something that I have never tried before and I had loads of fun with it. It took many hours to do, although it may not look like it. When I met Chris W from Debs the other day in the city, we were so busy yakking that we only took one photo each. Only one photo to work with made it quite tricky, so I went with this ... drew it up the other night and it looked ok...I must say, it may have looked better before i took the watercolour to the walls, as the water colour made the paper ball up a bit. I like the quirky look of this one...thanks for looking...

Happy New Year

Not much writing from me as I have been sitting on the lounge with Jacob all day very upset with a tummy bug...Not a very good start to the year for him.
I will post a more comprehensive update very soon as I am with pen in hand and notebook by my side writing all the CHALLENGES over at TBSS and DEBSCREATIONS. Hope to get stuck into these when my little man is better....
