|Here is a little D.I.F.M (Do It For Myself) creation I made. It is a little letter to my auntie Vikki to reveal to her a recipe which I had wanted to share with her which involves using Butternut squash. I used too a template I had found whilst browsing various blog pages from the lovely 'Love Vs Design'|
|CHRISTMAS EVE! I thought that tonight I would be allowed to treat myself to a little pamper session by painting my nails.|
|My Christmas eve nails. Used my new 'TATE nails inc varnish and borrowed my mums BARRY M CONFETTI nail varnish. On the third finger I did a simple dot design using GOLD and WHITE.|
|I can sing a RAINBOW! My view from my bedroom window on boxing day. It was a double rainbow too! =]|
|My decorated Christmas fruit cake made for my Nan. After decorating all of my Christmas cookies it was time to ice my Nan's fruit cake. I went a tad elaborate with the design but I have learnt a lot in terms of time and what is the best way of doing things. I wanted to try constructing a Santa sleigh out of icing but proved to be too fragile. I did manage to save it by 'gluing' it with the royal icing. Finished off with a spray of edible gold glitter to give the cake a lovely sheen =] Very happy and I hope my Nan liked it.|

|My baby cousin Rupert the Bear! It was lovely to have him around our house on Christmas Day as he is now at that age where they are just able to say a couple of words and show their true personalities! He was truly adorable and he never fails to make me smile when I see him =] The Blue 'Rocker' shirt was bought for him by my mum which I think looks lovely and really brings out the blue in his eyes. Then the little 'Rocker' hat was bought by me and my brother however it was a tad literally on the 'little' size and did't fit his head as snugly as I would have liked considering it was marked as 'one size'. I wrapped up his present in some DIY paper I had made from plain kraft paper bought from Ikea; using acrylic paints and un-used potatoes to create my own veg stamps using my cookie cutters and stamped various illustrations (Bear, Balloons, his name, Snowmen, reindeers...). |
