The Contemporary Home...

I love The Contemporary Home. It's currently stocking a particularly delightful selection of Halloween and Crimbo decorations which are the perfect antidote to all this cold and miserable weather! Not only that, but if you feel like being organised and splurging on festive fripperies nice and early, then by entering this code - MXMASEARLY - you can save 5%. Lovely stuff.

Long time, no post!

Oops. Bad Kate. What can I say?! I have been distracted by the horror of learning to drive and have signed up for one of those intensive driving course thingymejigs! I now feel like I don't do anything other than sit in a car, stalling and wailing! Meeps and wibbles.

Anyways, to make up for my absence here is a nice piccie of a few bits and pieces I have managed to make when I've had a spare five minutes...
I was asked to make the Russian doll with a black, red and white theme and I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out. She is most definitely a major improvement on previous versions which, for reasons that elude me, have mostly turned out with square-shaped heads. Strange...
