Out at work this morning, stopped at a friends house on the way home, but no reply so left a flower (from her garden I hasten to add - you won't see any in my'n...) and a note. Back here and have spent some of the day most successfully making some of my 'home-mades' for Christmas...they are: 9 presents to be made for each of my family on Christmas day, price to be spent on bits no more that £5 - so no bought presents...!!! did similar 2 years ago, as a Secret Santa, but only one present to be made for one person...it was a fabulous evening - we opened them one by one on Christmas Eve...made the bought presents on Christmas day quite uneventful..
Can't say what I've done - would RUIN the surprises....
Now I am going to knock up a spag bols for my lovely, hard working husband + a cup of tea!
Arn't I just so smashing!!!!!!!!!!
Most probably talk tomorrow...fairies on the way!
- Artist diary by Sarah Orchard
- Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... firstname.lastname@example.org Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
