MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Santa's been :D and gone...

and I was so busy using my video camera that I almost didn't get any photos!! I do it every year even though I promise myself not too.. I just can't turn the video off 'till all the pressies are opened. So only a few to share I'm afraid but here goes :-
No self respecting Santa comes on Christmas day without bearing a parcel containing at least one dress up outfit for Dear Grandson... just wouldn't be Christmas without one :D
So this year DG was transformed into....
the boy with power in his hands
the one and only Darth Vadar and oh boy did he love it :D

He tried to get his Mum and I to go see if Santa had been at 2 a.m. but considering us adults didn't get to bed 'till 1.30 a.m. he had nil chance of getting up then... we managed to keep him in bed until 7.30 a.m. but don't think there was too much sleep happening because by lunch time he looked like he was ready to hit the pillow again...bless :D He did perk up after eating a grown up portion of starter, main course and dessert though... cor can that boy eat and pulled every cracker and party popper he could lay his hands on..lol
Now did Santa leave ME anything under the Christmas tree.... you betcha he did!!
JUST WHAT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED... tra la la la la
A pair of PINK FLUFFY DICE!! DD's idea of turning a 40+ Mum into a wannabe teenager again...lol
Well I've never owned any so I guess there's a first time for everything... including the addition of a lovely pink blinged tax disc holder... hope I don't bump in to anyone I know while I'm on my travels...lol My Grandson wanted to make his Nanna happy and I was so surprised but elated when he presented me with some gorgeous bling for my crafting... and there was I thinking he didn't pay attention to what I do and love :D That's my boy!!

Now last but not least... the one you've all been waiting for ... well you have to have one nutter in a photo at Christmas and somehow I always manage to be 'IT' courtesy of DD and this year is no exception so without further ado
.
.
.
Take one Daughter with a camera in hand
.
.
.
Add one gift
.
.
.
A bit of persuasion... well a lot really!!
.
.
.
Strike a pose
.
.
.
And there you have it.....
.
.
.
The lady who ate ALL THE PIES....ROFL
Okay so I look different... well my profile photo was taken about May So I've had a good seven months for my hair to grow and also to turn into a blimp (see all that chocolate...does stay on the hips)
So guess what my New Year's resolution is...........
TO GET RID OF ME DOUBLE CHIN..... rofl
See you soon and hope you all had a fandabydozy time :D
hugs
Chris xx
p.s. d'ya think I suit yellow!!

Sue Nicholson said...

Great postand super photos . . . your grandson is growing in to a lovely, thoughtful young man :-)

The pic is priceless . . . I think you look good . . . but then I understand what you see when you look in the mirrow and what I see when I look at you can, and are very often, different.

Yellow. Not a fan I'm afraid :-(

Hope you have a smashing NYE and my very best and sincere wishes for 2009.

LOL we first net-met in 2007!!! How time flies!!
