As I write this post, it's late in the evening of Christmas Day. We've all eaten FAR too much, of course, and opened tons of fantabulous pressies.
I hope that anyone reading this had a wonderful day just like we did.
Especially my Secret Santa from Carmen's Christmas swap - who has spoilt me rotten!
Not only did whoever-it-is send a lovely, high quality sketchbook (perfect timing as I've just filled up my previous art journal, and haven't gotten round to buying or making a new one yet), a Cadbury's Wish chocolate (I looooooove those!) and a big pack full of fantastic papers and ephemera for arting up.
But she (pretty sure all the participants were shes) also carved me some fantastic little Christmas tree stamps, and - and this was the part of the gift that made me squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the loudest - she made me the MOST gorgeous little quilted bag for my journalling pens (seen above modelling my Copic airbrush plus all my most used pens). This bag is beyond impeccable in its construction - I WISH I could sew like that! - and I love it to bits!
Thank you SO much Santa - one little confession, though. I set up a movement activated security camera last night by our tree, and, well, you're not so secret any more! Nice moves ;)
