It's a busy time of year and I haven't been blogging or reading other blogs as frequently as I'd like to. But I've also been busy crafting and creating, and I love nothing better than making my own gifts at this time of year.
Way back in summer I was digging out some lino cuts I did years ago and thought I'd like to try it again, so off to the art shop I went and bought a piece of really soft lino, some tools, a roller and ink. It took me another couple of weeks to take it out and actually get creative and then when I did, I found myself totally void of inspiration. I knew I wanted to use letters and had more a less an image in my mind. I wanted it to be a statement, because the word LOVE encompasses so many things. It's very basic, but I had such a sense of accomplishment after I'd finished them! These cards are signed and can serve as little artworks if they are framed. I love how they are slightly imperfect and look totally hand printed, which of course they are! These are all going to my friends with a handmade clay Christmas decoration to hang on the tree!
I've also been baking non stop for a few days now and I am slightly sick at the sight of butter and sugar! But more about that later...
Are you finished baking, making and creating?
