hello!! how are you all??? how are you enjoying the festivities??? my christmas was lovely. I received some amazing gifts, skirts and jumpers and cardigans, floral boots, necklaces, earrings, an owl brooch, a hair bow, a little kit for making little christmassy friends, books and books and more books, floral perfume, a card by matt saunders, a ds with harry potter lego game (which is so so so fun!!! and i was so thrilled, i was not expecting a ds at all!!) and a where wally book, and special teas and a tea infuser and a teacup and biscuit tins and biscuits to go iside, and my boy's sister make me a little wooden doll of me which i think was my favourite gift! and i ate so so so much turkey and sprouts and stuffing and cranberry sauce and pickled onions ( a strange family tradition to have on our dinners at christmas!!) and custard and chocolate logs and homemade cakes and sweets and wine. And it has been wonderful!!
I have given the blog a little makeover. I am very very very very very aware that I have six months until I leave uni. scary scary. and more than anything, one day I wish to be able to make enough money from my art and crafts to just do that, and not have another job. I want to do craft fairs and sell my work online and maybe one day have a little shop. but i still get embarrassed about showing my work much. so i am going to try and make this blog even more about my art and what i do to try and build my confidence a bit and get better at prmoting myself, without getting silly and embarrassed every time. so instead of chimerical, this blog is now simply 'Rosie'. and i will post more of my work and update my shop more. and i will try not to be shy and think my work isnt good enough. that is my new years resolution.
Do you have any new years resolutions??
Happy 2011 everyone!!
