it's Christmas....(nearly!)

It's been a busy run up to Christmas with shows, exhibitions and orders to prepare but I have finally managed to get all orders sent out and I can now look forward to the festivities....

My Christmas decorations are looking great on the tree!

I have completed 2 commission jugs with a garden theme and personal family photographs which worked well....

2012 is looking great so far in terms of shows and exhibitions....
