Well half term is nearly over, so I'll be able to get back into making stuff! I spent a few days with the kids at my parents house, they live on the East Coast of Yorkshire. We managed an on the beach, it was really sunny and the sea was so calm, so I took a few photographs (tried to be a bit arty with my composition).

My parents recently went on a garden sculpture workshop, and they made my Brother and I fantastic ducks for Christmas. My Dad has since got the making bug and is creating a whole host of birds, can you guess what this is?

I finally got my gocco prints done for the swap, I wasn't sure about the print, but as it was my last screen I had to go with it. I printed on cards, recycled cotton paper and little notebooks. I also added a little gift of Yorkshire tea (Taylors of Harrogate). Hope everyone likes them, it cost me a small fortune to post as my group consisted of 10 from the States and 1 New Zealander !! I've had a few prints arrive already, which I'll show later. It's quite exciting to see what the postman will bring each morning!!
